The much-talked about iPhone X was launched in September 2017, alongside the 8 and 8 Plus. A big deal for all Apple fans, no doubt, but what exactly does this shiny new iPhone offer mobile phone users. We take a look…

What’s on offer?

The iPhone X (pronounced 10) is the newest flagship phone from Apple, launched in September 2017 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company’s smartphone. Made entirely of reinforced glass with an edge-to-edge display (there’s no home button), it uses facial recognition technology to unlock it. This technology, known as FACE ID in Apple-speak, is so secure that you can happily use it to authenticate ApplePay transactions.

The iPhone X learns what its user looks like through its 3D front-loaded camera. It will only unlock for its user, provided you keep still and look straight into the camera’s lens. According to Apple, this technology is so precise that there’s a one-in-a-million chance of someone else unlocking the phone. The X also comes with 12 Animoji – emojis that are animated based on the user’s facial expressions.

The new iPhone X is charged wirelessly using the Qi system. Just place the phone on a charging pad, and your iPhone will get an instant boost.

The iPhone X can be pre-ordered from 27 October 2017 with shipment on 3 November.

What else is there?

Two other iPhone models were introduced at the same time as the X – the 8 and the 8 Plus, which have a 4.7in and 5.5in screen respectively. Made entirely of glass, they also charge wirelessly.

Should I get an iPhone?

If you have other Apple products like an iPad or Mac, then it makes sense to complete the family with an iPhone – it will mean you can transfer files and photos almost seamlessly. But if you’re looking for iPhone deals on a budget, then choosing a package with a slightly older model is the way to go. You’ll still get a great phone, it just won’t be newest on the market.

What’s in the pipeline?

So, the iPhone X and 8 have been unveiled. What’s happened to the iPhone 9? Well, no one’s really sure. But whether or not it ever sees daylight, tech experts predict that future iPhones will have larger screens than ever before and higher resolution cameras. In the meantime, take a look at what iPhone deals are available right now – start comparing.
