In the case of the Apple iPhone X, it is going to cost Rs. 89,000 which is approximately $1400 and simply unaffordable for the majority of the population unless the person is a millionaire with plenty of spare cash to spend. The smartphone features Apple's highest resolution phone display: 2436 x 1125 pixels at 458 pixels per inch density (ppi).

Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are set to launch tomorrow. Asked by presenter Robin Roberts whether he considered the iPhone X "out for reach for the average American", Cook launched into an explanation of the lofty price point.

The iPhone X is a big step up from previous iPhones.


The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go on sale this Friday, and while some of them are already sold out, the initial response from the public may not match last year's demand. The late launch of the iPhone X originally put a dent into iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pre-orders as consumers made a decision to wait for the iPhone X to check it out.

Apple has announced a new way for biometric login called Face ID which will be seen on the iPhone X. But if it catches on in popularity, KGI Securities claims that this feature may be available on all iPhones from next year onwards. As per the report, the analyst firm has predicted that if this Face ID technology becomes popular among users, then Apple might ditch the Touch ID on all the upcoming iPhone models.

Apple seems to be pricing this iPhone X steep so that it looks cheaper. The longer answer is that wireless charging uses an electromagnetic field to power up your iPhone battery, and that could demagnetize the credit card stripe.


The A11 Bionic chipset that the iPhone X comes equipped with is a hexa-core one.

Supply chain sources told Caso that the iPhone X production would start in mid-October, just a few days before Apple starts accepting pre-orders. In fact, the flagship smartphone will be available in over 55 countries on November 3, including India. In the U.S. and some other countries, both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will go on sale on September 22.
