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.
You can use any Qi wireless charging pad, no need to get the one from apple.

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
This Steve Jobs worship is just ridiculous. In the early years Apple created what was basically a brand new device. It's only normal the the improvements would get less and less significant as time goes on... That says nothing about Tim Cook or however else is in charge...after all it's only a phone...

IINM Its normal for the up and down...

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.


Mine still offers 2 year upgrade discounts. But no idea what the price will be

I love watching how each company steals each other's ideas, from Samsung 8 with no buttons to apple with no buttons.
 Any chance samsung will remove the headphone jack? (I thing that would be really stupid of them.)

 And what's the X all about? Is it like the SE which is a replica of a model already out?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

The X is their latest and greatest. The 8 is a 7 with some new specs...

X is Roman numeral 10, as in 10 yr anniversary

I'm actually shocked they didn't try to screw people by making it not compatible with the regular standard.

Your belief is totally off..
The stock literally takes a dip the second the phone is announced every single year, and it stays down for a while, it only starts going back up when strong pre-order numbers start surfacing in news reports.

The drop has nothing to do with being "unimpressed" with the release, it has everything to do with "buy the rumor sell the news".

The stock kept on cracking all time highs the last few months solely because of iPhone X rumors, the rumors ended today, and the stock took a breather, that's all.

Not really.
Developing proprietary tech --> forcing everybody to use it --> huge demand --> collect royalties from 3rd party manufacturers, is how they usually roll.
