Iphone X

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - THE BEAT -

£999

The long-awaited iphone X has fi­nally ar­rived, and the edge-to-edge OLED screen and Truedepth selfie cam­era sys­tem are ev­ery­thing Ap­ple fans could have hoped for.

This is the iphone that Steve Jobs imag­ined right from the start, and many of the de­sign choices – from the glass and stain­less steel body to the curved cor­ners of the dis­play – hark back to that orig­i­nal hand­set.

The re­moval of the Home but­ton is a con­tro­ver­sial move, re­quir­ing users to learn a whole new set of ges­tures and short­cuts to ac­cess their favourite apps.

The new Face ID se­cu­rity sys­tem, which re­places the Touch ID fin­ger­print reader, and uses 3D scan­ning tech­nol­ogy to ver­ify your iden­tity, also takes some get­ting used to.

But as an over­all pack­age, the iphone X rep­re­sents the cul­mi­na­tion of 10 years of in­no­va­tion by the Cal­i­for­nian tech gi­ant and, de­spite the eye-wa­ter­ing price tag, it’s set to be one of its most pop­u­lar hand­sets so far pro­duced.
