What’s New: iPhone X

The iPhone X comes with a beautifully designed edge to edge super retina OLED display. The display is 5.8” on the diagonal, 2436—1125 pixels, and 458 pixels per square inch (PPI). The display also supports HDR, Dolby Vision, 1 million to 1 contrast ratio, color accuracy, 3D Touch, and is a True Tone display. It uses the same glass design as the iPhone 8 with a space gray or silver finish. Like iPhones 7 and 8, the iPhone 10 is water and dust resistant (IP67). The most noticeable difference in iPhone X I the missing home button. All of the functions that you used to do with the home button have been changed to gestures. To start off with to wake your phone you can use raise to wake or click the sleep/wake button and now you can tap anywhere on the display to wake. In order to access the home screen slide your finger from the bottom of the screen to the top and to access multitasking slide your finger from the bottom of the screen and go halfway up and pause. To open Control Center slide down from the top right of the screen. To activate Siri hold down the sleep/wake button. The iPhone X also now features FaceID which will replace TouchID. FaceID lets you unlock your phone just by looking at it by using TrueDepth cameras on the front of the phone. The only way to unlock your phone with FaceID is by looking at it and blinking so it will not work on photos. Just like TouchID your face is stored locally on your iPhone and does not get sent to a server. Also like TouchID, it works with Apple Pay and any other 3rd-parties that now support TouchID. Using the TrueDepth camera that is used to capture your face for FaceID it is also used for Animojis. Animojis are emojis that you animate with your face.

The camera is the same as the one found on the iPhone 8. This camera has 12MP dual cameras and also has all-new sensors, with a ƒ/1.8 and ƒ/2.8 apertures and both lenses have improved optical image stabilization. Using the TrueDepth front camera you can now take Portrait mode selfies using the new portrait lighting.
