Now Apple saved the best for last. The iPhone X, calling it the future of smartphones 10 years later.

Along with the features of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus here’s what else you can expect on iPhone X:

-The front of the phone kind of resembles the Samsung as the phone is all screen. 5.8 inches

-The band around the phone is stainless steel.

-It’s water and dust resistant

-Color options are Space Gray and Silver

-New Retina display called “Super Retina display”.

-HDR Display

-True Tone display

Here’s what’s especially different. The phone no longer has a home button, so how do you wake up the screen? just by tapping on the screen. Also, you unlock the iPhone X simply by looking at it, because it will recognize your face with the new Face ID feature. Now, I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry!! it will not unlock your phone by someone using a photo of you. In fact, not even a wax model of you will be able to unlock your phone. 

-Face ID will also work with certain apps that support the new feature.

-Apple Pay as well will work with face ID.

-Swiping up the screen will also allow you to unlock the phone.

-You now access Siri by pressing the side button.

-Animoji- An animated emoji. Basically, an emoji that you will be able to control with your face. You will be able to share the Animoji through iMessage.

-HDR video feature which looks amazing.

-Control center will now be a drop down feature.

-The tracking of the Face ID will also make it easier for Snapchat filters as it immediately picks up your face for filter fun.

-Truth Depth camera will allow you to take portrait mode photos. Selfies anyone?

-Increased battery life that will last 2 more hours than the iPhone 7.

Air Power- A cool wireless charging mat allowing you charge more than one Apple product at the same time. available next year.

You can Pre-order the iPhone X starting at $999.00 on October 27th and have it in your hands on November 3rd.
