The New iPhone X Costs $999 and Features an Edge-to-edge Screen
Plus, the home button is gone for good.
The large, sleek model measures 5.8 inches diagonally, features an edge-to-edge screen, facial recognition software, and a “Super Retina” display with the highest pixel density ever on an iPhone. It also does away with the iPhone signature home button: The entire face is a touch screen.
The new model doesn’t come cheap. Starting at $999 for 64GB of storage, it's the most expensive iPhone ever. It’s also water resistant with stainless steel edges, and comes in space grey or silver. (If you’re wondering how these are two different colors, you’re not alone.)
The phones will ship on November 3; preorders begin on October 27.
Apple also unveiled the iPhone 8 and larger 8 Plus, which they say will be able to handle more complex tasks and process 3D games more quickly. Those models start at $699. Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X also support wireless charging.
For those who are wondering, the iPhone X is pronounced as the Roman numeral 10, not as the letter “ex," in honor of the iPhone's 10th anniversary.
