WGM takes a closer look at Appleʼs latest ground breaking release, the iPhone X.

Celebrating 10 years since the launch of the first iPhone – a product that changed the face of the modern world – Apple has released its latest device, the iPhone X.

Boasting an all-glass design with 5.8-inch Super Retina Display, A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging and an improved rear camera with dual optical image, the iPhone X is one of the most hyped phone releases of the decade.

Both the front and back of the iPhone X feature a durable glass that comes in silver or gray. Continuing its improved signature design, the Super Retina Display employs new techniques and technology to precisely follow the curves all the way to iPhone’s rounded corners, ensuring durability while maintaining water and dust resistance.

Run by iOS 11, the iPhone X replaces the home button with fast and fluid gestures, allowing users to navigate by simply swiping up from the bottom, taking users directly to the home screen from wherever they are at the time.

And with expectations rising that today’s mobile phones will come with a high quality camera, the iPhone X doesn’t disappoint with a 7-megapixel camera and 12-megapixel rear camera with dual OIS.

A new addition for the iPhone X – one that is well overdue – is wireless charging via the AirPower mat. Due out in 2018, the AirPower mat will be compatible with the iPhone 8 and above and provides a welcome solution for those in need of a quick charge throughout the day.

Recent editions of the iPhone have certainly divided opinions around the world, but early indications are that the futuristic iPhone X provides the aesthetics and functionality users have been waiting for.
