|[VIDEO] Is The New Iphone X Really Worth The Fuss? Ten Things To Know by Temtee11223344: 5:17pm On Sep 14|
Apple CEO Tim Cook said that he was going to "reveal the product that will set the path for technology for the next decade" at Tuesday's Apple Special Event.
If there is anything that has set the internet on fire this week, it has been the new iPhone X (supported by its siblings : Apple watch, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus).
On Tuesday, Apple (AAPL, Tech30) unveiled new smartwatches, an Apple TV and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus at a press event. But the showstopper was a premium device called iPhone X, with a starting price that would have once seemed laughable for a phone: $999.
Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, framed the device as being nothing short of "the future of the smartphone."
"The first iPhone revolutionized a decade of technology and changed the world in the process," Cook said on stage. "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 for the next decade."
Here are 10 things (courtsey of CNN Money) you should know about iPhone X.
The X is silent
For starters, the new phone is pronounced "ten," not "X," at least according to Apple executives speaking about it on stage.
The iPhone X will have glass on both the front and the back, creating what Apple calls an "all-glass design." In case you're worried about that glass breaking, Apple stresses that the glass is "the most durable" ever used in a smartphone.
The front of the iPhone is all screen. Literally. The display covers the full face of the device, with the exception of a small sliver at the top for the camera. The screen measures 5.8-inches diagonally.
