iPhone X Release Date, Price, Features, & More! The Complete Roundup.

The most recent leaks surrounding the next iPhone, which will be announced on September 12, 2017, have indicated that the name of the phone will be the iPhone X. In this article, we’re going to discuss the recent leaks and discuss the iPhone X release date, price, features, and more!

iPhone X Release Date

Although it hasn’t been officially announced, the iPhone X and iPhone 8 will probably be released on September 22, 2017, on the second Friday following the announcement on September 12th.

You’ll likely be able to pre-order the iPhone X a few days after the event, most likely on September 14 or 15, 2017. If there is no delay in production, Apple will probably start shipping the iPhone X one week after they begin taking pre-orders.

iPhone X Price

The iPhone X price is going to be record-setting. Most reports indicate that the iPhone X will cost more than $1,000, with prices potentially reaching over $1,200! This is a big increase from the launch prices of the iPhone 7 ($649) and the iPhone 7 Plus ($769).

Why Does The iPhone X Cost So Much More Than Previous iPhones?

The iPhone X costs more than previous models of the iPhone because of the ground-breaking technology being incorporated into the phone. Improvements the iPhone’s display and new features such as facial recognition and wireless charging can account for at least some of the price increase.

iPhone X Features

With such a high price tag, it’s understandable that Apple fans will want a lot of new iPhone X features. We promise, you won’t be disappointed.

Weeks of iPhone X leaks have essentially confirmed that the iPhone X will have facial recognition, a large, OLED display covering most of the iPhone’s front face, no physical Home button, and wireless charging capabilities.

iPhone X Facial Recognition

Perhaps the most intriguing iPhone X feature will be its facial recognition, which will likely replace Touch ID and be used to unlock the iPhone, confirm purchases, and more. Apple fans were tipped off about Facial Recognition software last February when Apple bought a tech company called RealFace, which specializes in creating facial recognition software.

iPhone X Display

Another exciting iPhone X feature will be it’s display, which will look very different from previous models of the iPhone. For the first time, the iPhone will have an edge-to-edge OLED display, which will likely cover nearly the entire front face of the iPhone X. As a result, the bezels of the iPhone X will be much smaller than all previous models of the iPhone.

iPhone X Wireless Charging

Another iPhone X feature people are getting excited about is wireless charging. Rumors about wireless charging began in February when Apple joined the Wireless Power Consortium, which sets the industry standards for wireless charging.

Just to be clear — this feature won’t completely eliminate wired charging. You’ll still be able to use your Lightning cable to charge your iPhone, which will probably be faster and more reliable than wireless charging.

iPhone X Software

iOS 11 will be the first version of iPhone X software. iOS 11 was first introduced at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference. iOS 11 will have lots of new, exciting features such as the customizable Control Center, Do Not Disturb While Driving, Dark Mode (Smart Invert Colors), and more.
