Both iPhones are designed with the ‘the most durable glass’ that is both water and dust resistant. The two phones features an advanced 12MP camera, and the A11 Bionic chip that provides more battery life, and supports augmented reality games.
Unlike the iPhone 8, the iPhone X has been manufactured with no home button.
The iPhone X’s facial recognition is a point of high interest. This software can be used to unlock the phone, and create emoji characters that reflect your captured facial expression.
The iPhone X’s design and technology is causing a stir , despite information regarding its new features, such as the facial recognition software being leaked prior the launch event.
According to the BBC report, it is thought that an Apple employee was responsible for the leak. They published details about the new iPhone, and other upcoming Apple devices, on the websites 9to5Mac, and MacRumors.
This is the second time in three months that the company have had a member of staff leak private information. In June, it was an hour-long recording of an internal meeting about stopping leaks.
Mr John Gruber, a known blogger that follows Apples, wrote that ‘More surprises were spoiled by this leak than any leak in Apple history.’
Ben Wood, tech consultancy CCS Insight, stated ‘There will be an unbelievable effort within Apple to determine how this happened’
‘I don’t envy the person that did it because there will be no forgiveness for it’.
