IPhone X To Affect iPhone 8 Sales

Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus review

So far, 2017 appears to be the year of expensive flagships. Using fingerprints to unlock phones felt very secret agent-esque.

It really does make you wonder that how well the technology will work, will it be able to replace the touch ID, will it be able to recognize you if you shave your beard or put on a new pair of shades. The reason for this is the 8's glass design, instead of aluminum, like it was the case for 7. Both will be available in stores from 30 September.

Viewed front-on the differences are enormous, with the iPhone X having nearly no bezel around its screen, with just a small notch at the top to house important sensors and the front-facing camera.

Sounding more like a country's chief executive, Tim Cook says he feels he - and Apple - have a responsibility to speak up.

Their dimensions and weights are very different too. The bottom and top bezels are still there, unlike the X, where they disappeared completely.

The upcoming iPhone X is the first smartphone from Apple to arrive with Face ID biometric recognition feature. It's also the highest resolution at 1125 x 2436 and the sharpest at 458 pixels per inch. Don't think a silver iPhone; this is more moonstone than pearl, in a good way.

On paper, the iPhone 8 is a step up from the iPhone 7 in every way except when it comes to the screen resolution, battery and weight. If Face ID is viewed as a superior option, Apple will simply double down on that technology and bring it to every iPhone it sells starting next year.

The iPhone X is extremely expensive and will be costing $999 for just the 64GB storage model. That's likely to be especially handy when multitasking.

When Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military, Cook fired back, "We are indebted to all who serve".

Apple will now allow iPhone users to update their devices to iOS 11, a development that will bring an augmented reality (AR) feature to hundreds of millions of Apple devices.

Having made the decision of releasing the iPhone 8 and iPhone X at a distance has been wise because it wouldn't let customers decide between those two at the same time. Pre-orders for iPhone X will start from October 27 in 55 countries, including India. At face value, these numbers would indicate that the iPhone 8 is about 25% faster in single-core performance than its predecessor, as Apple said. As Kuo explains, the iPhone's 3D Touch technology results in a thicker display which, in turn, makes it more challenging for an embedded fingerprint sensor to accurately read a print.
