Updated 10/26: Preorders of the iPhone X are set to kick off at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time tonight. A number of reports have suggested that due to limited inventory, the hot new smartphone might be difficult to find at launch. We therefore recommend that depending on your time zone, you either stay up late or get up early to secure your own iPhone X.
Apple has promised that its stores will have iPhone X inventory at the retail launch on November 3. However, if you plan to grab one from a store, we suggest that you take your place in line bright and early.
What You Need to Know About the Latest iPhone
The iPhone X is here, featuring a radically new design that ditches the home button. The phone has a stainless steel frame and glass back, and it's water- and dust-resistant. Wireless charging support is also part of the specs.
The all-new, groundbreaking Super Retina display of the iPhone X utilizes a 5.8-inch OLED panel with high resolution. It supports HDR content.
The home button is replaced by swiping gestures. Instead of pressing a button to go to the home screen, you simply swipe up.
You'll unlock the iPhone X by simply looking at it, thanks to a feature called Face ID. It utilizes a sophisticated sense of sensors, headed by a depth-sensing camera. Your phone will essentially create a mathematical model of your face. You can't beat Face ID with a photograph.
All your biometric data will be stored locally. Face ID is even more secure than Apple Touch ID, which utilizes a fingerprint scanner. You'll be able to make payments and log into apps with Face ID.
Plus, Animoji are here to take over your life. You'll be able to create unique emojis that mimic your facial gestures, and you'll be able to use Animoji right from iMessage.
The iPhone X will use two 12 MP sensors, though it'll have a brighter telephoto lens compared to the the iPhone 8 Plus (f/2.4 vs f/2.8). Both sensors have optical image stabilization.
The iPhone X will be available for preorder on October 27 with a $999 price tag in silver and space gray, and it'll begin shipping on November 3. There will be two storage variants — 64 GB and 256 GB.
