With the announcement of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, Apple has expectedly slashed the pricing of the iPhone 7 models, along with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone SE. The iPhone SE will now start from $349, while the iPhone 6s will start from $449. The iPhone 7 has received a significant price cut, bringing the price down to just $549.
iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know!
The iPhone X is Apple’s flagship iPhone this year. While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the ones which are going to sell the most, it is the iPhone X that will catch the attention of most consumers.
After months of rumors, Apple today unveiled the iPhone X to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone. Technically, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the successors to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus from last year, with the iPhone X being a third new model in Apple’s iPhone lineup this year.
The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are going to feature wireless charging but Apple’s own wireless charger for these devices is not going to be ready for them. As per KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will not be unveiling its own Qi wireless charger at today’s iPhone X event.
A journalist in Sydney has spotted people camping outside the local Apple Store in anticipation of the iPhone X release. While lines outside Apple Stores are nothing new, the fact that the fans have started lining up two days ahead of the announcement is quite unusual. Apple usually announces the iPhone in September, puts it up on pre-order a couple of days later, and makes it available for purchase a week or two after that. This means that fans outside the Sydney Apple Store will have to wait at least 10 days before getting their hands on the iPhone X.
Up until last week, Apple had done a pretty good job of keeping the iPhone X and its various features from leaking. The HomePod firmware did provide some details about the iPhone X but compared to the previous few years, the leaks surrounding the handset were very low and dubious.
The leaked iOS 11 GM has revealed lots of unknown details about iPhone X and has given us a good idea of its specifications. The 10th anniversary iPhone will not only feature a bezel-less OLED display at the front but will also be packed to the brim with powerful and latest cutting-edge technology.
Ahead of the iPhone X launch tomorrow, KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo has issued an investor note in which he says the total production of the handset is less than 10,000 units per day. Due to this, Kuo expects the iPhone X to be in short supply for quite a while after its unveiling.
Almost two days after the iOS 11 GM build leak and revealed pretty much everything about the new iPhones from Apple, developers continue to dig deep into the firmware’s code to find out more info about the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.
This year’s iPhone launch event is turning out to be as exciting as the original launch event from 2007. Apple’s iconic, money-making product is going through a revolutionary change. The iPhone people have known and loved for the past decade may have gotten several features; but certain aspects of the device have remained the same. For example, the Home button has been central to navigating an iPhone since the first iteration. The tenth-anniversary iPhone boldly is going to change that familiarity, along with other never-seen-before features.
