Apple unveils a special 10th anniversary edition iPhone – the iPhone X


* Apple unveils a 10 anniversary edition called iPhone X on Tuesday at its new Cupertino HQ

* The new $999 device comes with an OLED edge-to-edge display and faceID software

* The iPhone X also come with AR emojis that can be controlled by the user’s face inside iMessage

* The phone has no home button or fingerprint reader.


The launch event yesterday at the new Apple HQ in Cupertino wouldn’t have been complete without the unveiling of the special 10th anniversary edition iPhone – the iPhone X.

The device is the display on iPhone X, featuring the first OLED screen that rises to the standards of iPhone.

The iPhone X (pronounced iPhone Ten) features a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED screen with richer colours. The phone does not have a fingerprint reader or home button, instead it relies on a facial recognition system called FaceID to allow a user to unlock it. Phil Schiller, Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing at Apple revealed that users will be able to wake the iPhone X by tapping the screen or by raising the device

The all-glass front and back on iPhone X feature the most durable glass ever in a smartphone in two beautiful colours, silver and space gray.

Introducing the iPhone X, Tim Cook said: “Our team has been hard at work for years on something that is important to all of us: the future of smartphone”.

“Now, ten years later, it is only fitting that we are here in this place, on this day to reveal a product that will set the path for technology of the next decade,” he continued.


iPhone X is as elegant as it is durable while maintaining water and dust resistance.

A MUFC fan with serious love for gadgets and all things tech. Not the movie-loving type, more like the kinda guy you'll see with a PS4 controller. I like good music - any type, as long as it sounds good. Oh and I'm a very picky eater too. Apart from science and tech, I follow all kinda stuff in politics, sports, business and entrepreneurship.
