Apple has done away with the home button and ushered in a range of new features, including Face ID, which allows users to unlock the device simply by looking at it. Other than that, the TV app for Apple TV will now have a separate tab for sports related stuff.
The event was particularly unhelpful for Apple because many have taken it as evidence that the company's facial recognition technology isn't actually read. Aside from Xiaomi, smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, Vivo, and Nubia are going to release their new models that come with full-screen displays. It might only have a 4.7-inch display and an older processor, but it's still perfectly capable, and has the added advantage of a headphones socket. This gives users five attempts to unlock their phone with their finger before asking them for an access code. Preorders begin in October and will be available by November this year.
Unlike its other siblings from the Apple family, the new iPhone X features more new stuff into any device since the original iPhone. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone - one in which the device disappears into the experience".
Something apparently went wrong when the iPhone X's facial recognition feature was being demonstrated during the September 12 event.
Like the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 will feature a 7-megapixel front-facing FaceTime camera and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/1.8 aperture. New laser technology will make those famous filters look even more realistic.
