Bringing Apple to the “X”treme

DEMI SOFOCLI

Is the iPhone X something you should invest in?  What makes this iPhone better than the rest? Apple says, “With iPhone X, the device is the display. An all-new 5.8-inch Super Retina screen fills the hand and dazzles the eyes.” According to CNET, the amount of iPhone users in the United States has grown to 94 million! This popular device really controls the world. But what makes it so special? What are the new features of the iPhone X?

Prior to the other configurations, the iPhone contained a home button, accessible to touch and press. Now, the new iPhone does not contain the home button. The new technique curves the design all the way to elegantly rounded corners. This new phone does not have any buttons on the screen. A single swipe takes you home from any app. The cool thing about this phone is the new way to unlock it. This sophisticated technology accesses ID recognition just like a previous Android phone. Now, you can feel secure because your face is your password. Apple says, “It projects and analyzes more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face.” New available ideas is the charging techniques for the iPhone. The way the iPhone X charges is interesting because it is not your typical plug-in cord. Apple introduces, “wireless charging for a wireless world.” The AirPower mat is new and allows you to place your phone on the pad and charge wirelessly. You can charge your phone at wireless stations and mats in cafés, hotels, airports, etc. – all reachable around the world.

Even though these new features are now available, are they really new and creative?  The face recognition has received some big talk but it is not something new. “Samsung was the first to pack advanced facial recognition technologies into a top-tier flagship with iris scanning technology inside the ill fated Galaxy Note 7”, according to Android Authority. This is not the only new feature available. The charging techniques are new for the iPhone as well. The way the phone charges is a new idea but it can be a hassle. Apple says, “just set your iPhone…anywhere on the mat to charge them wirelessly.” Even though this sounds easy, it is not. How are you easily able to go on your phone when your phone needs to be placed down on a mat? It probably is not as accessible as it seems.

There are many contemporary features available, but some of the ideas have already been used or might be a little difficult to learn. Is this something you are willing to invest in?
