iPhone X

iPhone X

(iPhone 10) The current flagship model of the iPhone. Introduced in 2017 along with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the iPhone X has a 5.8" OLED screen. Its very small bezel causes the X to look very different than all previous iPhones, even the iPhone 8. Touch ID fingerprint recognition was replaced with Face ID, enabling a glance to unlock the device or check out with Apple Pay.

The X integrates iOS 11 and uses Apple's A11 CPU with four energy-efficient cores and two high-performance cores for gaming. Wireless charging was also added, and the phone can be half charged in 30 minutes using a USB Type C cable. A telephoto camera offers optical image stabilization (OIS). For fun, a dozen different animated emojis (Animojis) can emulate the user's facial expressions. See iPhone 8 and iPhone.


No More Physical Home Button
Not the traditional iPhone; the front of the X is all screen. Swiping up from the bottom displays the home screen, and the Control Center is opened by swiping from the top right rather than the bottom. This shows the infrared signals scanning for face recognition to open the phone.

A small black band at top of the screen hides the microphone, speaker, camera and sensors. For facial recognition, the dot projector invisibly maps 30,000 dots on the user's face. The width of the X is actually smaller than the 8 Plus, but the screen is just as wide due to the smaller bezel. (Images courtesy of Apple Inc.)
