Apple unveiled the iPhone X to the world yesterday, with the “future of the smartphone” sporting a £999 price tag and having a November 3 release date.
The iPhone X is the biggest design makeover to the iPhone in its ten-year history, with it sporting a gorgeous 5.8 inch OLED edge-to-edge display.
The iPhone X has ditched the Home Button to make room for the screen which takes up virtually the entirety of the front of the device.
The screen is crystal clear, with a Super Retina display having a 2436 x 1125 resolution and HDR support.
It also has a glass backing for wireless charging and face-scanning tech for the new Face ID system and the Animoji.
Face ID uses a person’s face to unlock a device, instead of the previous Touch ID which used a person’s fingerprint.
While Animoji is an animated emoji that mimics a person’s facial expressions after the iPhone X scans a user’s face.
All of these great features come at a price though, with the iPhone X costing £999 for the 64GB version and £1,149 for the 256GB model.
It makes the iPhone X the most expensive iPhone ever.
However, fans looking to purchase an iPhone X may want to spend an extra £199 on this feature at their local Apple Store.
Apple have revealed the pricing for AppleCare+ – their extended warranty programme for its products – for the iPhone X.
It will cost $199 in the US for AppleCare+ on the iPhone X and £199 in the UK, according to TechRadar.
Due to the premium price tag of the iPhone X and the huge screen the device has, the extended warranty might be something owners are especially interested in.
AppleCare+ provides repair or replacement coverage, which includes up to two incidents of accidental damage.
The insurance also covers manufacturing defects and battery life issues.
The Apple iPhone X was revealed yesterday at the first event held at Apple Park, the tech giant’s new multi-billion pound headquarters.
It was unveiled at the Steve Jobs Theater and is a total reinvention of the iPhone.
Speaking about the new iPhone, Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer said: “For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display.
“The iPhone X is the realisation of that vision.
“With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone — one in which the device disappears into the experience.”
