Apple iPhone X Demo Fail During Event


September 13, 2017

I'm sure by now you've heard about or seen the video of the new products Apple announced at their event in Cupertino, California. 

They refresh a bunch of their hot products every September so they can be ready for the Holiday season. This time around the tech giant announced the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, the Apple Watch series 3, new Apple TVs, and the iPhone X. 

I'm an Apple geek so I was watching a thread that updated every few seconds with photos and specs of the products from MacRumors.com. It was rumored that they were going to do away with the rose gold color option on the iPhone 8, but that's not the case. 

They offer a gold option which isn't the gold color they have currently. The gold for the iPhone 8 and plus will be rose gold! Thank God because I love rose gold. 

You may have also noticed they skipped an iPhone 9 and went right to the iPhone X which they call the iPhone 10. This is the one that will start at $999. 

This bigger screened option is what I would consider Apple's version of Samsung's Galaxy Note. The screen goes edge to edge and you'll notice there's no home button. That means there will be no figure print ID security feature on the phone. Instead, they are using Face Identity to protect your phone. What a cool feature right? Not so much when it doesn't seem to work during your live product launch. 

The larger screen and better camera all seem like great features, but it's $999 for the 64GB version. if you have a lot of music or you take a lot of video on your phone, this may not be enough for you. So who will shell out all this cash? People who are legit not wanting anyone to access their phone and whatever they are doing. This is the phone for anyone who is doing anything shady or that has a snoopy partner that looks through their phone. 

I cannot upgrade my phone until next April of maybe even next Summer so I won't be getting one of these. I will be getting the Apple Watch series 3 with the cellular capabilities though.
