Apple iPhone X Explained at iPhone 8

542

Apple announced iPhone X within Special Event on September 12, 2017. Apple’s new iPhone X starts at $1,000 — technically $999. The iPhone X has everything that the iPhone 8 has, plus some extra stuff on top. So the big question is whether those are worth the extra money, or if you should just get the less premium phone – which still boasts a great camera and all the features you’d expect.

The iPhone X celebrates the 10th anniversary of Apple’s smartphone, featuring a radical redesign and new technology. The X is available for pre-order from October 27.

Apple also announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, an upgrade to its current offering. The new devices have an all-glass design and can charge wirelessly.

• A11 Bionic: All three iPhones have an A11 chip. It has two performance cores that are 25 percent faster, and four high-efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster, than the A10 chip in iPhone 7. The chip has a neural engine for facial recognition and an embedded M11 motion coprocessor.

• Wireless Charging: All three iPhones have wireless charging based on the Qi standard. Each device can charge by being placed on an inductive charging pad, such as Apple’s upcoming AirPower mat or third-party options from accessory makers such as Mophie, Belkin, and Incipio.

• Fast Charging: All three new iPhones are “fast-charge capable,” which means the two devices can be charged to 50 percent battery life in 30 minutes using Apple’s 29W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapters, sold separately and included with 12-inch MacBook and late 2016 or later MacBook Pro models.

• Water Resistance: All three iPhones have IP67-rated water and dust resistance like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

• Storage: 64GB or 256GB.

• True Tone and Wide Color: iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus have True Tone and Wide Color displays. True Tone automatically adapts the color and intensity of the display to match the color temperature of the light in its surrounding environment. Wide Color is use of the P3 color space.

• 3D Touch: Deeply press the screen to preview emails, messages, and other content, and access convenient Quick Actions.

• 4K video recording at up to 60 FPS and 1080p HD video recording at up to 60 FPS.
