Apple alongside iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus introduced the 10th Anniversary Special Edition ‘iPhone X’ flagship smartphone at an event held at the all new Apple headquarters ‘Steve Jobs Theater’ in Cupertino.
The new iPhone X which Apple calls the iPhone Ten (10), is a more premium flagship smartphone from the company, and has been placed above the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It has all new design philosophy from Apple. The front gets 5.8-inch bezel-less edge-to-edge glass display, and Apple has dropped the signature Home button as well.
Now there is no Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and Apple instead has introduced a new Face ID facial recognition and unlocking system. The Cupertino giant claims that unless you have an identical twin, there is no way that someone can get away with the Face ID security. Infact, the mechanism is as such that it learns person’s facial changes over the time, so whether you anything apart from a full face plastic surgery, it’ll still work as charm.
