Will Apple's iPhone X Be a Blockbuster Like the iPhone 6?

Appleā€™s senior vice-president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller introduces the iPhone X during a launch event in Cupertino California

The Apple iPhone X will be available in 64GB and 256GB memory variants, with the base model priced at Rs. 89,000.

Apple is also raising the price of its runner-up phones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which will respectively cost $50 and $30 more than their immediate predecessors, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The company also introduced an upgraded Apple Watch, which can make phone calls and access the internet without the user carrying an iPhone. In all the demos we've seen, the user has to lift the iPhone X directly in front of his or her face in order to unlock the phone.

Apple has launched the iPhone X (or iPhone 10) to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the game- changing smartphone.

"Given one month less sales for the iPhone X during the December quarter, we have reduced our December quarter iPhone sales estimates from 84 million to 79 million units", Canaccord Genuity analysts wrote in a client note.

And significantly, the iPhone X uses the front-facing cameras for Face ID, the company's new security system that recognizes your face and unlocks the device.

As the screen now takes up the entire surface area of the phone, the home button has been completely eliminated and with it, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Meanwhile, Apple has taken away the "S" moniker for many of its previous "second-generation" phones of the same design.

This was the first product event for Apple at its new spaceship-like headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. "We dedicate this theatre to Steve because we loved him, and because he loved days like this, where he could share his new products with the world". "Memories especially come rushing back as we prepared for today and this event".

What is the iPhone X made out of? It sets a new price threshold for any smartphone meant to appeal to a mass market.

Also, the fingerprint sensor placement at the back has been changed after user complaints with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ . All the swipe-based interactions have been tried by other phone companies before, with varying degrees of success.

You all know by now that Apple has a new super high-end smartphone. iPhone X is the future of the smartphone, according to Apple.

In 2016, Pokemon Go had a relatively crude Augmented Reality but it captured 20 million users in the USA within days of its launch, provided some indication of the appetite among consumers for the technology, which enables the overlay of virtual images and sounds on the real world location of the user.

For example, the X has a promising dual-camera with new sensors that perform better in low light than those of the iPhone 7s.

If you're in the United Kingdom, and you want a MASSIVE selection of options when it comes to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus deals is Carphone Warehouse - this would be my preferred option, as they cover all bases, budgets, and networks. "People have become more comfortable spending lots of money on their phones".

This hasn't been historically true for the Apple Watch. The number on your phone will be the same as your iPhone. Apart from this, the other carriers will also come up with their new plans for the new iPhones. It is the iPhone X that's going to differentiate you from the masses!

But rival phones - many of them from Samsung - already offer similar displays, facial recognition, augmented reality and wireless charging, if often in cruder forms that mostly haven't won over large numbers of phone users. The Series 3 watch will cost $399. One without cellular goes for $329, down from $369 for the comparable model now.

These are two of the best options for the United Kingdom and a sure fire way to ensure you get an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus as soon as they're available.

Outside of enhanced heart tracking capabilities, the new Watch will feature new fitness-focused apps, including a re-vamped Workout app and GymKit - an app that allows the Watch to synchronise with certain cardio equipment.
