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...
