Apple finally took wraps off the much rumoured Apple iPhone X at its September 12 event, alongside the Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are small upgrades to last year’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with wireless charging, faster processors, improved cameras, and glass body.
What made the event special is the Apple iPhone X, which is pronounced as Apple iPhone Ten (10). This iPhone X also symbolizes as the 10th anniversary iPhone.
Apple thinks that this iPhone will revolutionize the smartphone industry for the next 10 years, but the fact is, Apple is far behind the competition because several other smartphones already feature all these features.
But most of them are first for an iPhone. Here are the top features which make the Apple iPhone X the best iPhone ever.
1) Edge-to-Edge Design
With the Apple iPhone X, the Cupertino giant joins the edge-to-edge display party in style. The iPhone X introduces a revolutionary design with a stunning all-screen display that precisely follows the curve of the device, clear to the elegantly rounded corners.
The all-glass front and back feature the most durable glass ever (as claimed by Apple) in a smartphone in silver or space gray, while a highly polished, surgical-grade stainless steel band seamlessly wraps around and reinforces iPhone X.
Using a stainless steel band surely increases the sturdiness in a smartphone.
A seven-layer colour process allows for precise colour hues and opacity on the glass finish, and a reflective optical layer enhances the rich colours, making the design as elegant as it is durable while maintaining water and dust resistance.
2) 5.8-inch Super Retina Display
The display on the Apple iPhone X is a 5.8-inch Super Retina display, which is the first OLED panel used in any smartphone. This Super Retina display delivers stunning colours, true blacks, and also has support for HDR.
The HDR display supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, which together make photo and video content look even more amazing. The addition of True Tone (which can be found in Apple iPads) dynamically adjusts the white balance of the display to match the surrounding light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience.
3) Face ID
7 Features That Make Apple iPhone X Best iPhone Ever – So, the Apple iPhone X ditches the TouchID which Apple introduced with the iPhone 5S. The Face ID revolutionizes authentication on iPhone X, using a state-of-the-art TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognize a face.
These advanced depth-sensing technologies work together to securely unlock iPhone. The Face ID can also be used for Apple Pay, gain access to secure apps and many more new features. Developers can also take advantage of the Face ID.
“Face ID projects more than 30,000 invisible IR dots. The IR image and dot pattern are pushed through neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and send the data to the secure enclave to confirm a match while adapting to physical changes in appearance over time.
All saved facial information is protected by the secure enclave to keep data extremely secure, while all of the processing is done on-device and not in the cloud to protect user privacy. Face ID only unlocks iPhone X when customers look at it and are designed to prevent spoofing by photos or masks,” this is what Apple says about the new Face ID technology.
4) Apple A11 Bionic Chip
The Apple A11 Bionic Chip is the latest chipset from the house of Apple. This a 6-core chipset, a first in any Apple chip. It’s extremely powerful, in fact, the chipset achieved higher scores than an Apple Macbook.
The Apple A11 Bionic chip is 70% faster than the Apple A10 Fusion chipset. The A11 Bionic also integrates an Apple-designed GPU with a three-core design that delivers up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation. All this power enables incredible new machine learning, AR apps and immersive 3D games.
5) Wireless Charging
7 Features That Make Apple iPhone X Best iPhone Ever – As said earlier, the Apple iPhone X comes with a glass back. The glass back design enables a world-class wireless charging solution. Wireless charging works with the established Qi ecosystem, including two new wireless charging mats from Belkin and mophie.
6) Customised iOS 11 for Apple iPhone X
Apple redesigned the iOS 11 in the iPhone X to take full advantage of the Super Retina display. The iOS 11 gestures replace the Home button in the iPhone X with fast and fluid gestures, allowing customers to naturally and intuitively navigate iPhone X. Simply swipe up from the bottom to go home from anywhere. Swipe and delay to open the recent apps menu.
The Apple iPhone X’s cameras support AR technology, which brings us to the all new interactive Animoji AR system. The TrueDepth front-facing camera of the iPhone X brings emojis to life in a fun way with Animoji.
Working with A11 Bionic, the TrueDepth camera captures and analyzes over 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animoji, including a panda, unicorn and robot. Available as an iMessage app pre-installed on iPhone X, customers can record and send Animoji messages with their voice that can smile, frown and more. This is more fun!
