12th September 2017 will be remembered as the day when Apple introduced us to the future of Smartphones on iPhone’s 10th anniversary. Things have certainly come a long way since 2007, when Steve Jobs launched the first iPhone.
Back then, it was hard to imagine a device that can make calls, play music and videos, connect with the internet and click photos. Coupled with a full touch screen, sensors that auto rotate the screen and turn the screen off when you hold the device close to your ear. These features eventually became mainstays for every smartphone even after 10 Years.
Continuing the legacy, Apple has launched its 10th anniversary game changer called aptly as iPhone X. Same as the first iPhone that became a new standard for smartphones of its time, iPhone X too has brought some incredible features to exceed your expectations.
Let us go through some key features and highlights of iPhone X the anniversary edition.
From this first-generation iPhone, you know the appearance of iPhones for the round home button which is not there in its anniversary edition. Another major change in the design which completes its anniversary look is edge to edge display which means it is having the screen all over the front pane. 5.8-inch true tone display with a pixel density of 458 ppi make you feel like the world is on your palm. Back pane of this phone is with glass finish and you will find a dual rear camera on it.
2. Use it with your face:
Touch ID is now Face ID:
If iPhone X is not having the home button, then how will you manage your touch ID? The answer is touch ID is now replaced with face ID. iPhone X recognize you face which is a great example of machine learning. Face recognition technology can be found on other smartphones but on iPhone X it is that accurate that it can recognize your face in dark and it is even capable to adapt physical changes in your appearance over the time.
So, if you are wearing a hat or grown mustache or bearded then too your phone will be unlocked with your face. Face recognition is that secure on your iPhone that it can be used to authenticate your payments via Apple pay.
