The New iPhone Is Here…
Say "Hello" to your future... the iPhone X
The New iPhone Is Here...
Do you hear that? It’s the sound of people moaning in line for the new iPhone X. From Singapore to San Francisco, people camped out in front of Apple stores. The first redesign in years, the X will have an edge-to-edge screen, facial recognition, and more factors for an augmented reality.
What A Screen, What A Screen
Apple released a statement about the new design, “our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience. And so intelligent it can respond to a tap, your voice, and even a glance. With iPhone X, that vision is now a reality. Say hello to the future.”
The hype around the new screen has created more hype than past redesigns thanks in part to the new 5.8-inch Super Retina screen. The first OLED screen magnifies color, with a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio. The TrueDepth camera allows face ID, a first for the company. Your face is now your password. You can even unlock apple pay with the Face ID, making it one of the most secure ways to access your accounts. Additionally, the way you charge your phone morphs once again with a wireless charging station instead of a wall input.
No More Toilet Phones
For clumsy users, and likely, all college kids, the screen has the most durable glass ever, both front and back. Evidently it’s water and dust resistance so say goodbye to back pocket toilet drops. And for those selfie lovers out there, you can now capture yourself with “sharp foregrounds and artfully blurred backgrounds”.
Quite possibly the most exciting thing for millennials will be the Animoji in which the camera mirrors your muscle movements and creates 12 animal options. From pandas and pigs to robots, your expressions take on a whole new beast.
Even A Payment Plan!
Better start saving your pennies though, the Apple X retails from $999. Thankfully, Apple permits a payment plan of $49.91 a month.
