Apple CEO Tim Cook says iPhone AR update is 'a profound day'

Mockery Attack! Huawei Takes a Bite at Apple iPhone X (VIDEOS)

"I understand inflation, etc" one viewer asked, "but don't you find the price tag for the iPhone X out of reach for the average American?" In India, it's even more expensive at ₹89,000 - or $1,383.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday that the almost $1,000 iPhone X is "a value price, actually", after being asked if it was a too expensive for "the average American". Its tests showed the iPhone 8-Plus outperforming the 7-Plus by 67% when running the 3DMark IS graphics benchmark, by 28% when running the popular Geekbench 3 CPU benchmark in single-core mode and by 84% when running Geekbench 3 in multi-core mode.

"Had Apple not announced the X when it did, the iPhone 8 would be an easy choice for upgraders and about the same amount of take-it-or-leave-it talk by early adopters that we saw at the launch of the iPhone 7", Panzarino said. Particularly since features like Face ID are still unproven as a replacement for Touch ID.

Apple then replaced the unit with a new one, but the problems persisted in which Apple has since issued a statement on the matter. This would ultimately free its users from having to tether to their iPhone which would make it more flexible when it came to using during exercise outside. The new Portrait Lighting mode uses a similar tactic to adjust the lighting effects around the subject.

Since the announcement of the Apple iPhone X, the device has been described as a luxury item, a phone for the rich, etc. Apple's other new smartphones, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, will be available on Friday.

The iPhone X is jam-packed with exciting new features.

The iPhone X supports wireless charging based on Qi standard, and fast-charging technology.

With the introduction of the iPhone X, Apple shined a new spotlight on a decades-old technology that has never worked well on the phone: facial recognition for things like unlocking and paying with the device. The device is powered by an A11 Bionic processor. This year, I took full advantage of the season to look at the iPhone 8 Plus's most important camera updates. Recent benchmark results show that the iPhone X is far more powerful than any Android smartphone on the planet.

BuzzFeed's Nicole Nguyen headlined her review: "TBH, The iPhone 8 should really be called the 7S", again reflecting much of what other reviewers said. Also, the performance is reportedly slightly better on the 8 too. However, recently, it was reported that the estimates of the shipping are now dropping to between 1 and 2 weeks. Depending on the model you want, you might get your handset on the launch day itself if you pre-order it online.
