Apple is turning a design quirk into the iPhone X’s defining feature – The Verge

Friday, September 15, 2017

Draw me an iPhone. The lines may be squiggly, the rounded corners imperfect, but almost everyone you pose this challenge to will present you with the shape of a rectangle containing another rectangle sat atop a circle. The iPhone’s silhouette is the most iconic outline in all of modern technology, recognized by even diehard Android fanboys and featured on the side of “Made for iPhone” accessory boxes around the world….

Should I pay $1000 for the iPhone X? – Recode

Friday, September 15, 2017

How to choose a wireless charger for an iPhone 8 or iPhone X – The Verge

Friday, September 15, 2017

One of the biggest changes in Apple’s new iPhones is the long-awaited addition of wireless charging.

7 ways the iPhone X copies Android phones – CNET

Friday, September 15, 2017

I’ve said it before: the new iPhone X nets a lot of firsts for Apple devices. That makes sense; it represents the tech giant’s boldest, priciest handset yet.

Device makers borrow ideas all the time, and when they do, we all get a lift. Instead of…

Apple’s iPhone X notch is an odd design choice – The Verge

Friday, September 15, 2017

Apple’s new iPhone X has a spectacular edge-to-edge display that dominates the entire front of the device. Well, nearly the entire front. Unlike Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2, Samsung’s Galaxy S8, and LG’s V30, Apple hasn’t kept the iPhone X top bezel intact; and compared to the Essential Phone, its camera array is much, much more noticeable… and odd-looking. While the iPhone X design was leaked several times before Apple was…

You could be forgiven for seeing the iPhone as a functional and practical acquisition. The phone, after all, has revolutionized how we take pictures, order food, sign up for an exercise class, read the news, listen to music, communicate across thousands of miles through FaceTime and wait, as if reading tea leaves, as we watch the ellipses between exchanges with a new romantic partner. With each release of a new…

The company dreams its flagship stores will become “gathering places,” complete with classes on coding, music, and photography. Earlier, this week provided…
