This year marks the 10th year since the late Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to the world. A decade of innovation later, the original clunky device that came in only one colour has evolved into a monolithic beauty that is the iPhone X.
The development of the iPhone X (pronounced ten) has been the subject of much speculation and scrutiny since loyalists and tech journos started churning the ever-present rumour mill. Would it boast a bigger screen? Was Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jony Ive going to do away with the beloved home button? Are we finally going to get a better camera for our selfies? All the questions and whispers were put to rest last night when CEO Tim Cook took to the stage at the new Steve Jobs Theatre for the first Apple event located within their new campus, Apple Park.
Besides the edge-to-edge display and increased processing power, the iPhone X also packs a bunch of nifty features that are aimed at making your life easier. Here, we round up all you need to know about the phone before it hits the stores in November.
The iPhone X comes in silver or space grey in 64GB or 256GB models, and will be available to order on October 27 from US$999 for collection starting November 3.
