In terms of processor, RAM and battery the iPhone X offers 3GB ram, six-corer CPU, A-11 Bionic chip and Battery life that’s two hours more than the iPhone 7.

Apple has been able to fit a 5.8in display into an iPhone that is actually smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus, which has a 5.5in screen.

There's no Home button. It is replaced by a combination of on-screen gestures, and the occasional use of the side button. The more time we spend with the phone the more we are getting used to the new gestures, but it is a huge change after years of familiarity.

Iphone X

The iPhone X costs $999 for the 64GB model. For the 256GB model you will be looking at paying $1,149. The iPhone X comes in two colors, an attractive Silver version (shown below), with a shiny rim and white back, and an equally stylish Space Grey version with a black back. Unlike the iPhone 8 series, there is no gold version here.

It’s safe to say that the iPhone X has been the most-talked about tech product of 2017. Its 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. Apple has leapt straight from iPhone 7 (via the iPhone 8) all the way to iPhone 10.

Thousands of people queued around blocks the world over to pick up the new Apple handset on launch day, in scenes we haven't seen for a few years.
