The new iPhone already has a name: it is the iPhone X and it is the best Apple phone that has ever existed to date. It is the highest-end model of the three phones that have just been launched by the company in its new Steve Jobs theater at the Apple Park (the other two are the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus) and the most striking feature of its design is the introduction of a screen format that goes from edge to edge. However, this is only one of the novelties brought by this 10th-anniversary launch.
The iPhone X coincides with a very special moment for the company: the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, which explains Apple’s decision of giving its new phone this curious name (the ‘X’ stands for ten in the Roman numeric system) in an unprecedented change of strategy. It all started with the original iPhone that was launched back in 2007, but ten years have passed since then and with this new model we find an absolute renewal over the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
What has changed in Apple’s new iPhone? Out of all the novelties, the most striking one is that the new iPhone 8’s best model sports a screen that virtually covers the phone’s entire front. As we have already seen in the Samsung Galaxy S8, the LG V30 and many others, bezel-less displays are now the hot new thing that is featured on high-end phones, and Apple also wanted to take on this new trend. Let’s take a closer look at all of the iPhone’s novelties.
The new iPhone X changes everything for Apple
After years of being faithful to a design that has undergone few modifications as the years have gone by, Apple has decided to shake things up with the iPhone X: bid farewell to the screen bezels, to the dual-camera horizontal layout and to Touch ID. With what we have seen from the iPhone 6 onwards, those looking for similarities in terms of design will not find a significant resemblance.
