iphone X Designs & Features
The iPhone X is Apple’s most sophisticated iPhone to date. Its design is a complete deviation from that of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and the first ever iPhone to come without iconic home button for which previous generation of iphones are known. The home button which previously house the fingerprint scanner has now been replaced by Face ID technology as a new way to securely unlock the phone and pay in the check-out line. The face ID just as it name suggests unlocks the iphone X just by having you look at it. This it does with the aid of a tech embedded in the notch at the top of the phone: it combines an IR system with the front camera and a so-called flood illuminator that beams a light at your face so it can be recognized anytime,anywhere and even in the dark.
