No place for 'home' in Apple's new, costly iPhone X

No place for 'home' in Apple's new, costly iPhone X

Apple on Tuesday rolled out its much-anticipated iPhone X, a redesigned product of glass and stainless steel with an edge-to-edge display that Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook called "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone".

On Tuesday, for instance, Apple also introduced a TV streaming box that will sell for $179, far more than similar devices, and a smartwatch with its own cellular connection that will cost nearly $400.

The iPhone 10 comes out on 3 November.

The iPhone X features a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, which is an OLED panel.

"None of the features in the version 8 product will likely accelerate demand", Mizuho analysts wrote in a note. Apple needs to keep showing growth in order to maintain its lofty valuation.

Ultimately these are both premium looking phones, but the iPhone X is both bigger and a little more modern in its design.

Shares of Apple were last down 1.3 percent after erasing gains of up to 1 percent during the launch event.

What colours will the iPhone X come in?

If it lives up to its promise it will be the best and most exciting phone Apple's ever made, and quite possibly the best phone available from any company. The iPhone 8 64GB is priced at Rs. 64,000, while the iPhone 8 GB is priced at Rs. 77,000. Both phones have back facing single-lens cameras while Samsung maintains the fingerprint scanner, Apple has chose to forego this element and replace it with face recognition technology instead. The 256 gigabyte version costs $1,149, according to Apple's website. We'll see how this holds up to the Galaxy 8's IP68 certification allowing it to be under 1.5 meters of water for nearly half an hour with no trouble. The iPhone 8 Plus may lack the wow-factor of its flashy new sibling, but it's built on tested technology and has received numerous features and internal upgrades the iPhone X has, like the TrueTone display and smarter cameras.

The high price may be affordable for devoted Apple fans and other higher-income earners who will pay through monthly installment plans, which accounts for about 80 percent of USA cellphone users, according to Bob O'Donnell, president of TECHnalysis Research. The iPhone X attempts a lot, and in return the risks Apple takes in trying to get it all right in one fell swoop are just as considerable. "Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo are offering edge-to-edge screens at $300 or less", he added. Here's all you need to know about the three brand-new iPhone models' India pricing, availability and more. Both the phones will run on the latest iOS 11 and come in Space Grey, Silver, and Gold color options.

Apple is expected to announce new iPhones and other devices at its special event on Tuesday. Those cheaper handsets are particularly important for attracting new customers.

Who cares if every detail about the new iPhone X was leaked ahead of time?

The design is very impressive, introducing an edge-to-edge display for the first time on iPhone. Apple iPhone X will use your face as the password to unlock the device and authenticate apps.

Reuters reported the iPhone X's price raised a few eyebrows.

No one can say with certainty what sort of "killer app" will make augmented reality a hit.

Gene Munster, an analyst with Loup Ventures, believes sales of the watch could double or even triple because of the new connectivity. The smartphones were all confirmed to be compatible with existing and upcoming wireless charging solutions already adopted by many companies.

Apple has been slower to AR technology than Google, which launched an AR software tool called Tango back in 2014. The Mac and iPad maker has sold over 1.2 billion iPhones till date. That's six weeks before the iPhone X arrives in stores. Even though less is expected from their products, they can not afford to lag too far behind in terms of features.

The built-in eSIM is over one-hundredth of the size of a traditional SIM and that's one of the reasons Apple hasn't needed to increase the size of the device.
