Yep, it's official (though I'm sure it's not surprising), Apple is making a new iPhone.

It's called the iPhone X... Real original. Regardless, there are some new features. One of these new features is face detection (more on that later) and the removal of the home button.

All for the low price of 1 thousand shinglings and a heel clap.

Real slick apple.

I don't think there is even the technology for a reliable face detector, though, you'll never know.

Also, this happened during the iPhone X live presentation:


Although this isn't because of the tech (the phone wasn't set up correctly), it's still funny to see the guy get all sweaty when it didn't work.

The phone doesn't have any buttons too, hence the no home button. I don't know the point of this, but I guess it's cool? You unlock the screen via swiping down from the top of the phone.


Yeah, that's what Apple had to show. My thoughts? Well, it's definitely not bad, but with all phones, it didn't have to exist. I'm sure we could all live without face ID and no buttons, but I'm sure some soccer mom out there with every apple product is uber excited for this.

My galaxy note 5 is good enough for me

I completely agree. Though, i think it's pointless to release iPhone 8. Only X will sell, because it's cool.

"Hey look ! A guy with iPhone X !"

I'm happy with my Honor 8, thanks. I don't have half the money required for X.

That's what I think, too. To be honest, I feel Apple will discontinue the iPhone 8, after a few months after its release, because lots&lots of the profits will come from their iPhone X (and probably later, they'll also discontinue their iPhone 7/6S/SE, for that same reason, too).

Face ID is just creepy. It's not that hard to remember a password.

Do you also think that the "Touch ID" (fingerprint scanning, only on the older iPhones), is also "creepy", like the "Face ID" on the iPhone X?

Yep.

Also, I get why it's called iPhone X, but at the same time it's kind of strange, since X = 10 in Roman numerals and all that. iPhones 1-8, and then iPhone X. Taking a page out of Microsoft's book I guess.

Well, i have a sorta touch ID on my phone. It's useful because it allows faster login, but it works about half of the time (probably the last fall didn't do good)

The iPhone 8 was announced, but it hasn't been released yet.

They do give you the option to Pre-order it, so they'll place your order when it's released (and its release might be around September 22, 2017).

I don't know why anyone would buy the iPhone 8, but to each his own.

Also, it's funny to see apple fanboys get mad over a thread like this. Just goes to show the audience of Apple products.

Honestly, I don't see why people buy phones at all. I've been able to survive this long without one!

Mainly for communication. Having a phone is really useful, but modern phone companies milk that with 'new' features that don't matter.

No iPhone 9? More Cirno disrespect. -.-

Also fun fact, the X costs £999, €999 or $999, they didn't even bother to convert the prices, showing this is a scam esp. to us UK people...

Apple have been doing this shit, selling underpowered hardware at premium prices, since 2006 when they started using Intel over PPC in their Macs. It's only got worse since Jobs died, at least he had the decency to not throttle CPU/battery.
