To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone, Apple is releasing two new iPhones, the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.

By now, everyone has heard about the iPhone X, equipped with a bunch of new features and the best specs. Everyone is awaiting the release of this new, futuristic iPhone that is the first of its kind. The most striking aspect of this new phone is the 5.8 retina screen, made of a sheet of glass with no home button. According to Apple, this is the most durable glass yet. With the removal of the home button comes a new way to unlock your phone: facial recognition. The phone claims to have the ability to detect your face out of every face in the world. Apple also has removed the charging port, allowing this new phone to charge wirelessly.

Inside this phone is the new A11 bionic chip, according to Apple, “the most powerful and smartest chip ever in an iPhone.” This new chip has the ability to create an augmented reality experience in your games and apps. Along with this, the new camera has a larger and faster 12MP sensor, a new color filter, and deeper pixels. This new camera should make your photos look truly professional with studio-quality lighting effects. The new iPhone also hosts the newest operating system, iOS 11. Smartphones have truly advanced.
