New Features of iPhone X

iPhone X- New Features Apple has released its 10th anniversary phone, called the iPhone X (Ten). While I do not own one yet, My Wife & Daughter do. From what I have seen on theirs, and some of the research I have done, I my have one sooner than I think. I am going to explain some of the new features of the iPhone X, and why it is causing me to think about getting rid of my measly iPhone 6. The first thing that jumps out is the look of it. It is one of the best-looking phones I have ever seen. It is a completely innovative design, where the screen fills the entire surface of the phone. It has a glass over aluminum body, with a bezel-less 5.8-inch OLED display, and a top notch for the camera. Something else Apple users will notice right away on this version is that there is no “Home Button”. The new design offers lots of new gestures, and ways to maneuver around, but the biggest one of all is how you unlock your phone. You unlock it using your face. Apple’s new technology, Face ID, is used on the iPhone X. It works using the camera system in the notch at the top of the display. Glance at the iPhone X and it illuminates your face with an infrared dot array, allowing the infrared camera to identify it. It even works in the dark. Apple claims that it isn’t confused by hairstyles, hats, or beards. It has worked for my Wife and Daughter. According to Apple, there is a 1 in...

5 new features in the latest version of the iPhone

Every year Apple comes out with a new iPhone, sometimes there’s a lot to talk about and sometimes there’s not. This year, Apple has made some radical changes with their latest flagship iPhone, the iPhone X. The iPhone X has brought a slew of changes, most notably: an OLED display, facial recognition technology, wireless charging, dual cameras, and an impressive new chipset. OLED (organic light-emitting diode) Display Basically, an OLED display is capable of emitting its own light without the need for a backlight. It can reach higher contrast ratios than LCD screens. LCD screens cannot show true blacks because the light from the backlight will still come through, where as OLED screens can turn off individual pixels for true and deep blacks. Apple didn't only add an OLED screen to the iPhone X , however. A total redesign and overhaul of the screen technology was done. Now, Apple has tried to remove bezels completely, resulting in an edge-to-edge screen with a notch at the top and no home-button. The implementation of this technology was not all fine and dandy, however. The notch is somewhat controversial, 3D Touch has been removed, fingerprint scanning is gone, and the cost of the display has increased. This has resulted in some customers paying more for a device that has removed features that existed in previous releases of the iPhone. Facial Recognition The iPhone X has introduced an advanced new facial recognition technology (dubbed ‘Face ID'), it is essentially taking the place of Touch ID now that the iPhone X doesn't support fingerprint scanning.  Face ID works in different lighting circumstances and doesn't...
