It's ten years since the iPhone was first unveiled and Apple has marked the occasion with a new iPhone that doesn't just jump one generation, it jumps several. The iPhone X has a glass front and back. There are many benefits to this - not least the fact that you get a larger screen on an iPhone that feels more comfortable to hold than the iPhone Plus series, but also the fact that the glass back allows wireless charging using the Qi standard. The iPhone X sees Apple switch out its usual LCD screen tech for an OLED panel for the first time. It’s powered by the A11 Bionic chip, which is ridiculously fast, plus 3GB of RAM. Aside from a few software bugs in iOS 11, navigating the iPhone X is a universally smooth experience.
The one area that Apple hasn't changed for the iPhone 6 is build quality, and this model is the best yet. Sticking to its usual design regime, the iPhone 6 uses a completely new design. Gone are the square edges of the iPhone 5S, replaced with a curvier, more rounded body. Given the extra size of the phone, the rounded edges don't just look great, they make the phone easier to hold and we've not once dropped our handset by mistake.
Unlocking your phone is quicker on the iPhone X with Face ID. Your face is your password. Thanks to advanced facial recognition that maps and learns your face, you can unlock your phone just by looking at it. It even works in the dark, or if you change your hairstyle, wear sunglasses, or grow a beard. Face ID is a unique way to access your phone, and keep it safe.
Be blown away by the best camera ever on an iPhone. iPhone X has a larger 12 MP sensor, with a new colour filter and deeper pixels. Both rear cameras have optical image stabilisation, and fast lenses for excellent photos even in low light. A Portrait Mode helps you take the best selfies and portrait photos you've ever taken, by letting you adjust the light settings for studio-quality effects.
Transform the way you send messages with Animoji. 3D sensors in the iPhone X let you create your own custom 3D animated emoji that reflect your facial expressions. Smile into the camera to make your favourite emoji appear full of joy, or give it a look of surprise. Your custom animated emoji will share the same expression and can read out a voice message too.
