iPhone X is the first iPhone to have an OLED screen, which Apple calls Super Retina Display. While this brings amazing brightness levels, the ability to ditch the bezels and amazing color reproduction, it does expose the iPhone X to image retention issues. Image retention (or burn-in) is an issue inherent in OLED display technology.
iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know!
With the holidays winding down (some folks are still on vacation until 2018 rolls around, after all), data analytics company Flurry has shared their data to give a look at which company came out on top this holiday season.
iPhone X users over the last week have become increasingly frustrated with the inability to approve family purchase requests using Face ID. For every app or media purchase request they get, iPhone X owners are being forced to enter their Apple ID password which is a slow and complicated process for many.
Before the iPhone X launched, analysts expected the handset to sell like hot cakes and lead to a super cycle where Apple would sell a record number of iPhones. However, due to production woes, analysts expected a demand-supply imbalance that would see Apple sell a lower number of iPhone X units than originally anticipated.
Did you find a brand new iPhone in your stocking stuffer? Congratulations! And welcome to a (new) world of iPhone and iOS (especially if you got an iPhone X!). As you’re ripping open the box and starting to boot up the iPhone, read our recommendation for the best way to setting up and using the new iPhone.
iPhones were long believed to have the best cameras in smartphones. However, in recent years, that position has been challenged by the likes of Samsung, LG and HTC with their flagship smartphones sporting better hardware camera specs than the latest iPhone available at that time. And then Google absolutely ripped apart the competition with its Google Pixel last year and its computational photography tricks. This year, with the Google Pixel 2, the company seems to have taken things to a different level altogether.
Prior to iPhone X launch, there were multiple reports and rumors suggesting that demand for the handset will far surpass any of the previous iPhones. The initial demand for the handset seemed to have suggested the same, but a new DigiTimes report claims that in some markets, demand for the iPhone X has been lower than expected. This includes the United States, Taiwan and Singapore.
Apple has typically drifted towards a light theme for iOS over the years, which made sense considering the company continued to use LCD displays and not OLED panels.
Apple changed things up this year with the iPhone X, adopting plenty of oft-requested features, but also changing up the iPhone’s design in a big way.
