Apple iPhone X Release Date: Six new iPhone X-exclusive features not included in iPhone 8, Plus

Though a dip in iPhone sales is to be expected given the mass of users who are holding out for the iPhone X, Kuo writes that demand for the iPhone 8 Plus has been higher than anticipated.

Over the course of past few days, there have been many reports on Chinese news websites and social media that talked about the case of iPhone 8 battery swelling. The iPhone X features an enormously lovely 5.8-inch Super Retina Display in a smartphone that takes up almost the entire front panel.

Apple's new iPhone X is the first of the company's devices that will feature Face ID, the handset will go on sale next month. Rather than being an all-screen device that has only generic features, the iPhone X has the camera sensor at the top that breaks the display line at the top of the phone.


We all know how popular the iPhone X is and how much of an impact it's had on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales. Kuo says that Apple will integrate TrueDepth camera on 2018 iPad models for Face ID recognition. Apple uses a TrueDepth camera for Face ID on the iPhone X.

It's not clear what the fate of the Home button and Touch ID will be now that Face ID is gaining prominence. It only unlock the iPhone X when user look at it even you're wearing eyeglasses, hat, change your hair color, had an hair cut as well as whether you've gain or reduced weight - all that thanks to the machine learning.

There's a lot of new features and aspects to like on the iPhone X and it's surely a huge a super-cycle upgrade over anything the Cupertino has built in years. While the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 were the most popular phones for the first half of 2015, 2016 and 2017 respectively, market share for each phone declined from 10% to 7% and then 5% this year.
