WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT iPhone X? Design and Display it’s all screen.
• All-new 5.8-inch Super Retina Display.
• Apple weren’t kidding when they said the screen goes edge-to edge, it literally stretches into every corner.
• It’s also the first ever OLED screen on an iPhone. It’s super bright, the colours are vivid and true, and blacks are deeper than ever before.
• Plus it features the most durable glass ever in an iPhone, front and back.
Face ID a revolution in recognition.
• Your face is now your password. Face ID is a secure new way to unlock, authenticate and pay.
• Face ID is enabled by the front facing True Depth camera and is simple to set up. It projects and analyses more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face.
• Face ID is so secure you can use it with Apple Pay. And check out with just a glance.
So simple, anyone could use it
• The new edge-to-edge screen on iPhone X means Apple have dispensed with the Touch ID sensor, and home button.
• But have no fear, Apple have designed a simple set of gestures to make it really easy to use iPhone X.
• Just tap the screen to wake it up, and swipe up to unlock the screen.
• To go Home, just swipe up again. To load multi-tasking, swipe up, and pause, and hey presto, your apps appear.
