iPhone X

The iPhone X (iPhone 10) is a smartphone that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2017 to 2018 as part of the iPhone series. This generation of iPhone has been introduced on September 12, 2017, and its price started at $549.

The new iPhone features a Six-Core 2.4 GHz 64-bit Apple A11 Bionic processor with Three-Core graphics, Apple M11 motion coprocessor, 3 GB of RAM, 5.8″ Super Retina HD OLED Display with True Tone and 3D Touch technology, GPS, 4G / LTE data capability, two colors; Space Gray and Silver, 64 GB or 256 GB of flash memory, built-in Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC for Apple Pay, Lightning port, Dual 12 Mpix rear camera system / 7 Mpix front cameras with TrueDepth camera system for facial recognition called Face ID, three-axis gyro, accelerometer, Barometer, Digital compass, GLONASS, Galileo, Qi inductive charging, and IP67 for water resistance and dust resistance.

The iPhone X contains Apple’s A11 Bionic system-on-chip, also used in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which is a six-core processor with two cores optimized for performance (25% faster than the Apple A10 Fusion processor), along with four cores optimized for efficiency (70% faster than the previous generation). 

It also features the first Apple-designed graphics processing unit and a Neural Engine, which powers an artificial intelligence accelerator.

The iPhone X has a 5.85 inch (marketed as 5.8 inches) OLED color-accurate screen that supports DCI-P3 wide color gamut, sRGB, and high dynamic range, and has a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. The Super Retina display has the True Tone technology found on the iPad Pro, which uses ambient light sensors to adapt the display’s white balance to the surrounding ambient light.

Although the iPhone X does not feature the same “ProMotion” technology used in the displays of the second-generation iPad Pro, where the display delivers a refresh rate of 120 Hz, it does sample touch input at 120 Hz OLED screen technology has a known negative trend of “burn-in” effects, in which particular elements consistently on the screen for long periods of time leave a faint trace even after new images appear.

Apple acknowledged that its OLED screens were not excluded from this issue, writing in a support document that “This is also expected behavior”.

The iPhone X has two cameras on the rear. One is a 12 Megapixel wide-angle camera with f/1.8 aperture, with support for face detection, high dynamic range, and optical image stabilization. It is capable of capturing 4K video at 24, 30, or 60 frames per second, or 1080p video at 30, 60, 120, or 240 frames per second. 

A secondary 12 Megapixel telephoto lens features 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom with an aperture of f/2.4 and optical image stabilization. A Portrait Mode is capable of producing photos with specific depth-of-field and lighting effects. It also has a quad-LED True Tone flash with 2x better light uniformity.

On the front of the phone, a 7 Megapixel TrueDepth camera has an f/2.2 aperture, and features face detection and HDR. It can capture 1080p video at 30 frames per second, 720p video at 240 frames per second, and exclusively allows for the use of Animoji; animated emojis placed on top of the user’s face that intelligently react to the user’s facial expressions.

Face ID replaces the Touch ID authentication system. The facial recognition sensor consists of two parts: a “Romeo” module that projects more than 30,000 infrared dots onto the user’s face, and a “Juliet” module that reads the pattern. The pattern is sent to the Secure Enclave in the A11 Bionic chip to confirm a match with the phone owner’s face. By default, the system will not work with eyes closed, in an effort to prevent unauthorized access but this requirement can be disabled in settings.

The iPhone X has two color options; silver and space gray. The sides of the phone are composed of surgical-grade stainless steel to improve durability, and the front and back are made of glass. The design is intended to be IP67 water and dust-resistant.

This iPhone has been discontinued on September 12, 2018, and has been replaced by the iPhone Xs.

Today iPhone X is 6 years old!
