Apple issued an updated support document to Apple Stores and third-party authorized service providers this weekend. In the document, Apple outlines the repair process if the user experienced iPhone X Face ID failures.

What the document is saying that employees should first to run diagnostics and determine if the face ID of the customer's iPhone X can be fixed by servicing the rear camera. If there is still a problem after servicing the rear camera, staff are authorized to perform a whole unit replacement for iPhone X with Face ID issues, instead of a display repair.


In order to provide the best customer experience, if a customer reports that their iPhone X is having Face ID issues, you may be able to resolve the issue with a rear camera repair. Run AST 2 on the customer’s device to check the camera. If the diagnostics find issue with the camera, perform the repair to see if the issue is resolved. If the issue is not resolved, perform a whole unit replacement instead of a same-unit display repair.

Although it seems there is no conjunction of some kind links between failure of the iPhone X's rear camera and front TrueDepth system, however, several users wrote that they have noted that when their rear camera fails, Face ID also fails, which the phone itself displays a message reading “Face ID is not available, try again later.”

According to both KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman of Bloomberg that Apple plans to release a next-generation iPad Pro this year with slim bezels and Face ID. And now codes uncovered in iOS 11.3 seems to support the claims.

iHelpBR's editor Filipe Espósito has discovered strings in the first iOS 11.3 beta that refers to a "modern iPad," which is notable since Apple's software engineers referred to iPhone X as the "modern iPhone" in older firmware, says Espósito and developer Guilherme Rambo.


While the "modern iPhone" strings allude to iPhone X, then the discovery lends credence to rumors of an iPad Pro with Face ID, which would certainly be a logical next step for Apple's product roadmap.

The tablet reportedly lacks a Home button, although it will likely still have an LCD instead of OLED display due to supply, cost, and technological constraints. It's not clear if the iPad Pro will have a notch for the TrueDepth system, or it will have uniformly slim bezels on all four sides with enough room for the Face ID sensors.

The TrueDepth Camera system enables unlocking iPads with facial recognition, support for Animoji, and even Portrait mode selfies. Face ID is also expected on a second-generation 5.8-inch iPhone X, a larger 6.5-inch version dubbed iPhone X Plus, and a new larger 6.1-inch LCD model.

Huawei has a history of trying to beat Apple at its own game, and that's truer than ever now since the iPhone X is in town. At the end of a presentation for the Honor V10, the Chinese smartphone maker have teased a depth-sensing camera system clearly meant to take on Apple's TrueDepth face detection technology.

The camera system uses a combination of infrared and a projector to create a 3D map of your face, but it can capture 300,000 points -- that is 10 times as many as the iPhone X captures, more of impressively, the Huawei's version currently takes 10 seconds to rebuild this more precise 3D model.


Huawei's new system is secure enough to be used for mobile payments, and the company's fingerprint sensor, can be recognize your fingerprint in 400 milliseconds. In addition, Huawei also demonstrated a similar Animoji features, not only to tracking facial expressions, but it can also determine if the user is in time to stick out their tongue.

Just keep in mind that this was only a spec announcement: Huawei didn't specify when this technology could be ready for prime time. It was also unclear whether the system might make its debut in Huawei’s upcoming P11 flagship, expected later this year, or at some point in the future.


Reliable Apple analyst Ming- Chi predicted it might take Android vendors at least 18 months to copy Apple’s technology so this is an interesting turn of events. Huawei is one of Apple’s biggest rivals in China, they notably announced their own “Force Touch” phone just days before the iPhone 6s launch.

Earlier this month, a video from cybersecurity firm Bkav made the rounds for successfully being able to “trick” Face ID using a carefully constructed mask that mimicked a real person’s face. Now, Bkav shared a second video with a new mask and a clearer look at how the mask used to spoof Face ID.

The research firm explains that the new mask is made of stone powder with 2D infrared images of eyes taped over the mask. Thus, to Face ID, the mask mimics a real face with eyes, the cost to make the mask was $200.


First of all, the demonstrator sets up Face ID normally with his face and then shows that “Require Attention for Face ID” is enabled in Settings. This means that Face ID must be detect that the user is looking at the camera in order for the iPhone X to be unlocked.

Bkav claims the materials and tools used to create the mask are "casual for anyone" and that Face ID is "not secure enough to be used in business transactions.” You will need a high quality image of the person whose phone you’re trying to access, as well as access to a 3D printer, as we as various other materials, not to mention direct access to the person’s phone.

What Bkav believes Face ID is less secure than Touch ID because it's easier to capture photographs from afar than it is to obtain a fingerprint, but this is still a very complex replication process that the average user does not need to be concerned with. Just keep in mind that this is a first-gen technology.

Bloomberg today rolls out new report that details what to expect from next year's iPad Pros next year. It reports Apple is working on a new high-end 2018 iPad that will adopt many of the design elements from the revamped iPhone X, and predicted that Face ID and no Home Button will come to the iPad Pro lineup in 2018.


We are expecting it will feature slimmer edges, a faster processor (A11X), a custom Apple-built GPU, and built-in support for Face ID, allowing it to be unlocked with a facial scan much like the iPhone X. Since it will featuring Face ID, there's no need for a Touch ID Home button. A new version of Apple Pencil and new "software tools" are also said to be in the development.

By removing the home button, Apple plans to noticeably reduce the size of the edges on the top and bottom of the device for the first time since its introduction in 2010, bringing the design closer to that of the recently released flagship iPhone X. The new version will mark the first revamped look for the iPad since the first iPad Pro debuted in 2015.

The report also suggest that it is not likely we’ll see iPads switch to OLED displays next year. iPhone X features a 5.8-inch OLED display, but the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro screens are larger and could include features like ProMotion or Apple Pencil support that aren’t on iPhones. OLED definitely a pricier component due largely to supply as well so cost is a major factor.


According to the publication, the revamped iPad is expected to be released "a little more than a year" after the prior iPad Pro update, suggesting it could see a launch sometime around September. Apple refreshed its iPad Pro lineup in June of 2017 at the WWDC, brought True Tone display technology to the iPad family.

According to Tom's Guide, iPhone X's new Face ID facial recognition system unlocks an iPhone more slowly than Touch ID did. Some early reviews put Face ID speed somewhere between Touch ID 1 and Touch ID 2, and Tom's Guide has tested both and recorded the numbers. Though Touch ID beats Face ID in terms of speed, but there's fix to speed up the process.

It took 1.2 seconds for the site to unlock the iPhone X from pressing the side button on the side of the device and another 0.4 seconds to swipe up to get to the lock screen, while getting to the Home screen on an iPhone 7 Plus using Touch ID took 0.91 seconds. When using Raise to Wake and swiping up on the display as the iPhone is recognizing a face, unlocking was faster at a total of 1.16.


It seems like Touch ID is a faster unlock method, but according to TechCrunch's Matthew Panzarino, he points out, in day-to-day usage Face ID has benefits over Touch ID due to it's a more streamlined interaction. Panzarino says that while Face ID is slower when placed head to head with Touch ID, it's "much more fluid and faster to actually 'do things.'"

For example, with Touch ID, to do things like open up a notification, user meed to tap the notification and then use it to open the notification, but with Face ID, it recognizes your face as the phone is raised while you're tapping the notification, make it much quicker than Touch ID fingerprint recognition.

Do you know that Face ID also includes an option to disable requiring your attention (open eyes facing screen), so you may have faster results with this extra requirement disabled if you’re not worried about someone unlocking your iPhone with your face in your sleep.

Apple's Vice President of hardware engineering Dan Riccio says the rumors of Touch ID rumors ran rampant about Touch ID being placed under the display, or on the back or side of the device were never true, according to an interview with TechCrunch's editor-in-chief Matthew Panzarino.


In the interview, Riccio said Apple "spent no time" focus implementing fingerprint authentication in these ways because it decided to go all in with the Face ID system. The narrative that Apple was still trying to use Touch ID in iPhone X prototypes this year is wrong, Riccio said, adding there were no late design changes to the phone:

"I heard some rumor [that] we couldn't get Touch ID to work through the glass so we had to remove that," Riccio says, answering a question about whether there were late design changes. "When we hit early line of sight on getting Face ID to be [as] good as it was, we knew that if we could be successful we could enable the product that we wanted to go off and do and if that's true it could be something that we could burn the bridges and be all in with. This is assuming it was a better solution.

And that's what we did. So we spent no time looking at fingerprints on the back or through the glass or on the side because if we did those things, which would be a last-minute change, they would be a distraction relative to enabling the more important thing that we were trying to achieve, which was Face ID done in a high-quality way."

Speaking into Face ID, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple is unlikely to expand its front-facing TrueDepth system for Face ID and Animoji to rear-facing camera module on iPhones released in 2018. He said the iPhone X's 3D sensing capabilities are already at least one year ahead of competitors. For that reason, Kuo thinks Apple's focus with next year's iPhone models will be ensuring an on-time launch with adequate supply.


Based on aforementioned assumptions, we do not expect 2H18F iPhones to come with rear TrueDepth Camera/3D sensing, contrary to market expectations. While we agree that a rear TrueDepth Camera/3D sensing can potentially provide more augmented reality (AR) applications, we note that Apple needs to quickly resolve two issues if it wants 2H18F iPhones to have a rear TrueDepth Camera/3D sensing, namely: (1) the development of AI and ARKit software and an ecosystem, which takes time; and (2) achieving stable shipments and on-time shipping, which are challenging due to the higher spec requirements of rear TrueDepth camera.

Even without rear TrueDepth, the analyst believes 2018 iPhone models will unsurprisingly come with other tech spec upgrades to attract consumers. There are already few of reports claiming next year's iPhone likely to equipped with With 6.4-Inch OLED Display.

According to A new investor note is out today from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, which the analyst said supply of components for the facial recognition system is now stable. He also explains that Apple “won’t repeat” the supply and production struggles it experienced with the iPhone X with the new 2018 iPhone models.


Kuo went on writes that shipments of the 2018 iPhone models will arrive on time and in stable supply during late Q3 of 2018. He also expects new iPhone models launching in the second half of 2018 to adopt the same wafer level optics for the TrueDepth system's dot projector, and the same 4P lens for the infrared camera, as the iPhone X.

Apple won't repeat the mistake of supply disruption & delayed production as seen with iPhone X. We believe shipments of new 2H18F iPhones will arrive on time under stable supply in late 3Q18F. And given no major spec upgrade of TrueDepth camera on these new models, we believe Apple will continue to use the same WLO for dot projector and 4P lens of infrared camera as iPhone X. We believe the supply of both components are now stable, leaving no need to switch to other solutions.

KGI notes that the report contradicts other market expectations that say the 2018 iPhones will adopt a new “hybrid lens (glass and plastics).” Doing this, he writes, would cause more supply chain problems and he believes the 2018 iPhone models “have to hit the market on time.” Previously Kuo reported that Touch ID was all-but-dead as all 2018 iPhone models would instead move on to Face ID.

Lastly, the reliable analyst recently has predicted that the iPad Pro will likely to adopt Face ID in 2018, and today’s report seems to further suggest that being the case. With the key components become more readily available thanks to supply chain improvements, it seems likely that Apple will begin expanding Face ID to the rest of its product lineup.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s investors note that was sent out this morning, iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID. The analyst believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to bring a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. 



Along with all high-end iOS devices equipped TrueDepth Cameras, "ecosystem development" will also benefit, according to Kuo, TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple's flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned that if Face ID "well received."

We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple's (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications.

With Apple embracing facial recognition and the TrueDepth Camera, Kuo predicted that he expects Android hardware makers to begin researching and developing facial recognition technology, give up under-display fingerprint recognition technology. However, as Kuo previously saying it will take up to 2.5 years for Android hardware to catch up with the TrueDepth camera.



Apple latest flagship product - iPhone X, The company's first product with a TrueDepth Camera, will be released to the public on November 3. It's unclear when the Cupertino firm plans to introduce new iPad Pro models, but the new devices could come as soon as the first half of 2018. The iPad Pro was last updated in June of 2017, introducing a new 10.5-inch model and True Tone display technology.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Android hardware makers have turned their attention away from under-display fingerprint readers and toward 3D sensing technologies like those Apple debuted with iPhone X, a flip-flop designed to capture customer sentiment. Kuo says that since Apple launched True-Depth Camera and Face ID in September, the Android camp's demand for potential 3D sensing solutions has tripled...

While under-display optical fingerprint recognition is only a spec upgrade from capacitive solutions, 3D sensing embodies a revolutionary user experience and warrants a premium on gross margin. 3D sensing not only enables facial recognition in security applications and allows users to create fun expressions like Apple's Animoji, on a more important level, it is a key factor in the development of AR. We therefore believe brand vendors are willing to spend more for related components.

Currently, the solutions available to Android phone vendors are said to be from Qualcomm and Himax, Orbbec, and Mantis Vision, with the more mature Qualcomm-Himax solutions attracting the most attention. Allegedly Apple is also developing its under-display Touch ID solution, though the company finally chose Face ID as the iPhone X secure system solution.



Kuo went on to say he believes the next two to three years will see shipments of 3D sensor-equipped Android devices to exceed those with under-display fingerprint recognition by a factor of two or three or more. This will be mainly due to 3D-sensing's wider compatibility with LCD screens than under-display optical fingerprint recognition, which is exclusive to OLED panels, said Kuo. 

As Kuo previously said that it will take Apple's Android competitors up to two and a half years to replicate the functionality and user experience of the TrueDepth Camera on the iPhone X. He thinks Apple's TrueDepth camera prove to be popular with consumers, all of the company's future iPhones are likely to adopt the feature.

Finally, the KGI analyst predicted which Samsung's continual dominance of the high-end OLED panel market over the next two to three years will mean shipments of under-display optical fingerprint recognition will remain significantly capped.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who told investors in a note shared this morning, that it will take Apple's Android competitors up to two and a half years to replicate the functionality and user experience of the TrueDepth Camera on the iPhone X. TrueDepth Camera could also limit Apple's iPhone X production to 30M units this year


As Kuo said in a previous report, he predicted it would take one to two years for competitors to catch up, but having watched Apple's official technical demonstrations in detail, the analyst now believed it will take longer to replicate the user experience.

Because of TrueDepth Camera production issues still existed, KGI Securities has revised its 2017 iPhone X shipping estimates from 40 million to 30 to 35 million units, but Kuo says the firm stands by its "positive outlook" on shipments of future iPhones equipped with the TrueDepth Camera.

Apple's TrueDepth camera system enables its Face ID facial recognition system and other features like advanced face tracking and analysis for Animoji. Rumors suggest the difficulty of manufacturing the TrueDepth camera is what has led to significant iPhone X production issues, severely limiting initial available supply. It's expected that all of the company's future iPhones are likely to adopt the feature.


At the same time, Apple's rivals such as Samsung and Google will also need to overcome these development and manufacturing problems to create a product similar to TrueDepth Camera. Samsung has released S8 and Note 8 with facial recognition, but it's not as superior as Apple's solution because it's limited to 2D tracking, making it less secure and easy to fool.

Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President of software engineering at Apple, today joined The Talk Show by John Gruber, where he likened uncertainties over Face ID to the concerns that customers expressed when Touch ID first launched in 2013 in the iPhone 5s.

Honestly, we're just all counting the days that customers can finally get their hands on these. Because I think just like with Touch ID, initially people thought oh, 'Apple's done something that's totally not going to work and I'm not a believer and I'm not gonna use this feature.'

Now everyone's worried because they can't imagine life without Touch ID. We're going to see exactly the same thing with Face ID.

And when it comes to a discussion about that saw Face ID fail to authenticate his face during Tuesday's event, Federighi said he was shocked when it happened because the feature normally "just works." He went on to say he understands the uncertainty, but that it will "melt away" once people experience the product. "You don't even think about it," he said.


At the same time, the Apple executives said Apple believes Face ID is the future of biometric authentication system. In addition, Federighi also reiterated that, besides some of the products with a shielded infrared coating, most of the sunglasses will not affect Face ID's proper functioning, he also emphasized that is you can turn off the "attention aware" feature that requires eye contact for Face ID to unlock, but it might be less security,

TechCrunch while also interviewed Craig Federighi, which offers a few additional Face ID details like developers do not have access to Face ID sensor data; if there are 5 failed attempts to recognize Face ID, you’ll see a passcode request; if you haven’t used Face ID for 48 hours, you’ll see a passcode request.


Lastly, Federighi adds that if you’re wearing a garment that covers your face, Face ID won’t work. But if you’re wearing a helmet or scarf, it works just fine. Interview with Apple’s Craig Federighi answers some burning questions about Face ID, please click here

According to Craig Federighi, director of Apple's software engineering, Apple's new facial recognition feature, in most cases, will not be affected by the user who wearing sunglasses and will work normally. "Most sunglasses let through enough IR light that Face ID can see your eyes even when the glasses appear to be opaque. Federighi said in an email to developer Keith Krimbel.


Although Apple's Face ID feature has made it clear that is suitable for hats, scarves, beards, glasses, makeup and other things that may cover the face, but hasn't special mention sunglasses. Federighi's answer also clarifies the last important factor on facial recognition. That is, how would user prevent a thief from taking the iPhone X, pointing it at his face, and running off. 

In response, Federighi says there are two mitigations in place. "If you don't stare at the phone, it won't unlock," he wrote. "Also, if you grip the buttons on both sides of the phone when [you] hand it over, it will temporarily disable Face ID." 


In addition to answering above questions, Federighi also commented on the now highly-publicized that saw the feature fail to recognize his face. As we reported before, the software failed because someone else had picked up the phone ahead of Federighi's demo. Federighi says it's not really an issue he had encountered before.

The bio-lockout that I experienced on stage would require several interacts by other people with your phone (where they woke up the phone). For those of us who have been living on the iPhone X over the last months this has never been a real problem (hence my shock when it happened to me on stage! :-)


Face recognition is designed to replace the Touch ID and become a new biometric authentication system. Although this feature currently only supports iPhone X, but Apple said that the study of how to unlock the smartphone is a major trend in the future development, Face ID is just the beginning.

If you watch Tuesday's Apple fall event keynote, then you should not only notice that Apple released iPhone 8 or iPhone X, but also Face ID appeared to fail to recognize Craig Federighi's face, leading to doubts about the feature's reliability and accuracy. And Apple confirmed the situation in a statement to Yahoo last night.


Apple explained that the demo iPhone X had been handled by several people before being setup at the demo table for Craig Federighi. Face ID had tried to authenticate the faces of everyone who handled the device, and after failing, the iPhone X moved to require a passcode. Thus, when Federighi went to demo Face ID, the iPhone X was already in passcode mode.

People were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time,” says a rep, “and didn’t realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a number of times, because they weren’t Craig, the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode.” In other words, “Face ID worked as it was designed to."

In order to prevent spoofing and hardware attacks, Apple's biometric system is automatically disabled after a predetermined number of unsuccessful attempts. For example, the Touch ID allows users to try five attempts to authenticate with their finger before requiring a passcode. Apple documentation shows Face ID allows only two tries before being disabled.


The ins and outs of Face ID and its reliability will remain largely unknown until the iPhone X launches in November and is in the hands of customers. After the event, members of the media contacted real-time, but the comments were confusing. Most people are generally impressed with Face ID and see it work seamlessly, but at least one report shows that the feature does not work until the display was turned on and off.

Face ID uses the infrared scanning techniques to create a mathematical model of user's face, which is compared to a facial scan stored on the device to authenticate. Because it uses infrared, Face ID works in dark and low light conditions, and Apple says it also also works with hats, glasses, and beards, makeup, and other items that might partially obscure the face.

Apple yesterday officially announced the iPhone X, its all-new, redesigned, tenth anniversary iPhone. Right after the keynote where it debuted, reporters were treated to the hands-on demo room within the Steve Jobs Theater where they got to be among the first people in the world to hold an iPhone X. Below we'll round up some of the first impressions on the device, which many publications are describing as "beautiful," "amazing," and a "weird-looking" iPhone.


The Verge mentioned that the the "star of the show" for the iPhone X is its 5.8-inch OLED screen, which goes to great lengths in proving that an iPhone without a Home Button can actually work. Furthermore, the site said Face ID "actually works," with a nearby Apple demo assistant repeatedly showing off the biometric security feature, which "worked every time" even under the bright and erratic conditions of the demo area. Is it worth having it? The Verge thinks that although it is expensive, the iPhone X is well worth it.

SlashGear thinks the iPhone X looks familiar, and yet so very different. Similarly, he also commenting on the "striking" OLED display. While other smartphones have had OLED screens, SlashGear said the iPhone X "takes it to another level," with text and graphics that look "embedded into the toughened glass" of the display. But he felt the iPhone X notch seems pretty ugly, in spite of this does not affect the use of the smartphones


While appleinsider make complaints that iPhone X gives Apple the ability to drive sales of an "even more premium" smartphone, featuring specifications and capabilities that are harder (if not impossible) to launch in the mega-million volumes that existing generations of iPhones currently sell at. Apple didn't just slap on a better camera and upgrade the screen resolution in order to charge more or declare a "technological first."

Regarding to iMore's first hands on review, they basically generalize that there's three specific eras of iPhone. With the launches of iPhone X, the third era of iPhone has begun.The site saying that new Super Retina Display is incredible though, but there's one drawback: A notch that drops down over on the top of iPhone X. IMore also tested Face ID, just like Touch ID, it learns as you use it.


Finally, TechRadar describes iPhone X "easily, easily the best-looking phone Apple's ever made," with rear glass that feels "solid and secure" in the hand and the rounded edges and light form factor make it "pleasant to hold," although fingerprints will be a problem. Despite being slightly smaller than an iPhone 7 Plus, But we still two need hands to operate.

Apple announced the iPhone X during its special event at Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, Cupertino today. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone X was "the future of the smartphone" and will "set the path for technology for the next decade". The new model is available in two colors: space gray and silver. Its new Super Retina Display uses a 5.8-inch OLED display with a full-screen design.


"For more than a decade, our intention has been to create an iPhone that is all display. The iPhone X is the realization of that vision," said Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. "With the introduction of iPhone ten years ago, we revolutionized the mobile phone with Multi-Touch. iPhone X marks a new era for iPhone — one in which the device disappears into the experience."

The iPhone X, pronounced "ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, including HDR, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and  It also supports True Tone like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus announced earlier today.

Since the Home button was removed, the device uses touch-based gestures to interact with iOS 11 in lieu of a home button, and is powered by a next-generation A11 Bionic neural processor that handles world tracking and scene recognition, backed up by a GPU that enables graphics at 60 frames per second. The handset comprises a glass and stainless steel design, which features a front-facing camera with advanced facial recognition called Face ID.


According to Apple, the Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and even makeups, whilst changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working. Apple says all the processing is completed locally and securely, and the feature only works when you’re eyes are open and you’re paying attention and not looking away.

Speaking to security, Touch ID already has a 1 in 50,000 stat for security. While Face ID easily beats that score with 1 in a million. Since Touch ID was removed, Face ID now taking the role to use with Apple Pay and the new side button and in apps that already support Touch ID. In addition, iPhone X also uses facial recognition for Apple’s new Animoji feature in Messages. This uses facial tracking to capture your expressive as well as your voice to send animated emoji.


The new flagship smartphone is also features with a redesigned, vertically aligned dual-lens TrueDepth 12-megapixel rear camera, equipping Quad-LED True Tone flash with dual optical image stabilization, while Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting on both the front and rear cameras offers dramatic studio lighting effects for creating portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles.


Meanwhile, iPhone X features 2 hours more battery life than the iPhone 7. Wireless Qi charging is also available through the glass back. Apple also gave a sneak peek to AirPower, an wireless charging accessory designed by the company itself which coming in 2018, it also can charges for Apple Watch Series 3, and a new optional AirPods charging case.

The iPhone X is fast-charge capable, while its surgical steel band is said to enhance its water and dust resistance. The handset will be available in 64GB and 256GB storage capacities, priced from $999. The iPhone X will be able to pre-order from October 27 and will ship on November 3.
