Apple confirms iPhone X 64GB $999

Crazy! How much will it cost with a typical 2 year contract?

Most contracts don't give discounts anymore.

This phone is going to sell like hot cakes. They could of charged $1.5k and it'd sell like hot cakes.

the 256 GB version will prob be either $1199 or $1299

Only new tech I really saw was the face unlock in the dark. Is that just going to be a you need a bright screen for that, or will it really work in the dark?
Id be super surprised if it didn't

In that case, no new tech in this phone, besides the dumb looking face tracker if you want to talk like an animal, woohoo. Obviously good for their target market of millennials...

Absolutley. I think Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave if this is all they came up with for the 10 year anniversary. Its just a slimmer and sleeker version of the 6

Onm y S8 face recognition requires you to remove your glasses, so it's not really for me. I think Apple makes thing best, even if they copy others. Lets see how it works. usually they don;t release a technology unless it's 100% perfected.

Should announcement effect prices of older iPhones?

When it is out it should.

Seemed like there's some type of light for that.


Seems like the features the x has over the 8 are the full screen which created a need for a new unlocking system - face id - which created the need for that selfie camera. I've been using and upgrading my iPhone for a bunch of years already & I'm really not impressed. Besides for the camera the big addition (this year, not only the x) is the wireless charging which you'll prob have to shell out another nice chunk of cash. (Yes I checked the x ships with whatever iPhones have been shipping with until now.
