iPhone X (pronounced "iPhone Ten") is a smartphone developed by Apple as part of its iPhone lineup. It was announced during a special event on September 12, 2017, alongside the iPhone 8 and 8Plus at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus.[1] It was released on November 3, 2017 with a starting price of US$999.[2]


The iPhone X adopted OLED screen technology from Samsung and used a glass and stainless-steel form factor. It offered wireless charging and removed the Home button in favor of a new bezel-less design. It also introduced Face ID – a new type of password authentication using advanced technologies to scan the user's face to unlock the device. Animoji (Animated emoji) was also introduced with the iPhone X. It shipped with iOS 11 and is powered by the Apple A11 Bionic processor. It came in 64 and 256 GB storage capacities.

The iPhone X was met with mixed reception - it received universal praise for its display, camera, and build quality. However, the sensor housing "notch" at the top of the screen was heavily mocked by users, but later adopted by many other smartphone companies in various implementations.[3]
