Apple unveiled a new line of products on Tuesday that has technology lovers buzzing.
The iPhone X comes with new features and a hefty price tag of $1,000.
Update: The iPhone X release date of November 3 is approaching fast, and we can now confirm that Apple’s new phone will support Netflix in HDR on day one. However, finding the smartphone in stock is going to prove challenging. All of the latest iPhone X news is below.
iPhone X is “the future of the smartphone” according to Apple, but it’s going to be hard to find in stock. You’ll also need to brace yourself for the iPhone X price and release date that Apple announced at its September 12 launch event. It costs more than any prior iPhone, and is shipping later than expected.
That’s the only bad news, though. Apple claims the iPhone X, which is pronounced ‘iPhone 10’, is worth your money and the extra wait time. This is Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone, and it’s making big changes for 2017.
That said, the iPhone X is the flagship phone you really want. It takes Apple’s 10-year-old smartphone design in a bold new direction. It also leaves behind the familiar physical home button and tried-and-true fingerprint sensor.
Is it worth the extremely high iPhone X price and wait? What are the big features you need to know about? We have all you need to know about the iPhone X right here.
