IPhone X shipping delay may dampen Apple's holiday quarter sales

IPhone X shipping delay may dampen Apple's holiday quarter sales”

The much-hyped event on Tuesday unveiled three new phones, an advanced watch that can take calls and a new Apple TV, but die-hard fans will not be able to get their hands on the iPhone X until November 3 - much later than iPhone 8's shipping date of September 22.

On the 10th anniversary of the iPhone's release, Apple has chose to skip over nine and jump straight to 10 with the release of the iPhone X (pronounced "iPhone 10").

Analysts, for months, had predicted the anniversary edition would cross the $1,000 mark, and the iPhone X did just that.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, however, are respectably priced and feature nearly all of the iPhone X's new fancy specs and features.

Calling for transparency from Apple, Senator Franken seeks reassurance that the locally stored Face ID data can not be extracted from an iPhone X either by Apple or a third party, remotely or locally.

Both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus now have aluminium banding around the edge, with the strongest glass ever on a smartphone on the front and back of the device.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for pre-order on the Apple store from 15 Sept at 3.01pm. In addition to unlocking the phone, the system also can be used for Apple Pay and other secure apps.

Shortly after the event, the Indian arm of the Cupertino-based tech giant revealed the pricing details of the iPhone X in India, which, to be honest, is best described as laughable. "With the iPhone X, your phone is locked until you look at it and it recognizes you", Schiller said when first introducing Face ID. Apple examined the demo device's logs and found that the same thing happened to it. "People were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time, and didn't realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face", a company rep explained. Apple says the A11 can deliver up to 70 percent greater performance and has an up to 30 percent faster graphics performance than previous iPhone chips. The 8 and 8 plus start at $699 and the iPhone X is Apple's most expensive phone.

As a heads up, Trndlabs' Nova earphones are those new style of earphones where there is no cord at all, kind of like the Apple AirPods but, you know, not white and toothbrush shaped, so consider these Bluetooth, wireless, and lacking any physical connection to a phone.

There's one more trick we're fans of: like all tiny wireless earphones, they come with a battery charging case.

The handsets, as expected, are pretty much exactly what we were expecting: two iPhone 7 updates and one brand new iPhone, which costs more than most laptops.
