iPhone X: New features and changes

At this year’s September event, Apple officially announced the iPhone X following months of rumors. With the iPhone X, the Cupertino company has removed what users have been accustomed to over the past few years in favor of a new iPhone lineup with a number of key trends.

The iPhone X sports a new design and includes what’s best of Apple’s technologies like Super Retina OLED display, Face ID, and HDR support. Apple’s latest flagship smartphone will arrive in November, two months later than its two brothers, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and it won’t come cheap. If you are planning to grab the new iPhone X on launch day, make sure you check out our article in the section below.

  1. New design

If you are a big fan of Apple iPhone, then Apple’s latest flagship smartphone may look unfamiliar. The iPhone X looks entirely different to any other iPhone model we have ever seen in recent years. With the iPhone X, Apple has re-adopted the all-glass back design that was previously used on the iPhone 4. The glass back doesn’t look premium, but it offers a solid hands-on experience.

The iPhone X marks the first time Apple has removed the classic home button from its iPhone lineup. The front of the device is now almost all screen, something we have already seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Touch ID has also been removed from the front to pave the way for a new security measure, known as Face ID.

  1. OLED display

OLED display is among the best highlights of the iPhone X this year. The iPhone X is the first iPhone model to feature the flexible display panel. The device features a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED display with a resolution of 2436×1125 (458 PPI pixel density). The curved OLED display on the iPhone X offers an immersive viewing experience ranging from watching videos to playing some games.

The display includes support for True Tone technology, which was previously debuted on the new iPad Pro. Apple’s True Tone display automatically changes the color temperature based on the lighting in your environment in order to achieve a better contrast for reading on the screen.

  1. A11 chip

All three iPhone models are powered by Apple’s latest six-core A11 chip, thus bringing some major performance improvements over the A10 chip used in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apple’s A11 chip includes two performance cores and four efficiency cores, beating out the A10X Fusion chip in the iPad Pro.

  1. Face ID

This year, Apple has removed the Touch ID authentication from its iPhone X, instead adopting a new security measure, dubbed Face ID to unlock the phone. With just a look, you can authenticate your iPhone or use Apple Pay, all made possible by the TrueDepth camera system located at the top of the screen.

  1. Portrait mode selfies

Last year, Apple added Portrait mode to the iPhone 7 Plus in an attempt to create professional photos. This year, the front-facing camera now has Portrait mode, allowing users to bring a DSLR-like background blur to their images.
