When the iPhone was introduced to the world, 10 years ago, Apple has released a series of videos to help people familiarize themselves with the phones. Ever since, using an iOS devices was simply intuitive.
But now with the release of the iPhone X and the removal of the home button, Apple needs to teach people how to use an iPhone again.
Jump over the break to learn the basics of the iPhone X….
Ten years ago, Apple introduced the very first iPhone, and changed the world. Today, iFixit is taking apart Apple’s 18th iteration—the iPhone X. With its rounded edges and edge-to-edge display, we’re sure this is the iPhone Steve imagined all of those years ago

I’ve always had my iPhone on vibrate. It was great. At least until the iPhone vibrate intensity started to be very very week.
This happened around the iPhone 6s release. Coincidently Apple released the Apple Watch the same year. Maybe the Apple Watch is just an alert extension for the iPhone?
Now that I can’t have my iPhone silenced, I need a ringtone. I can’t stand Marimba. 99.9% of iPhones use the default ringtone. You never know whose phone is ringing? Is it mine? No idea, can’t f*cking feel it vibrate.
So right now I use the first 40 seconds of Wojciech Kilar’s “Corso” song from The Ninth Gate soundtrack.
But this is going to change, because the iPhone X comes with a new exclusive ringtone called “Reflection”. You can download it here. Already an .m4r file, so just sync it to your phone via iTunes.
Apple released today a new promo video for Apple Music. Called “Apple Music Anthem” the video features iconic imagery from the past and present.

So with the new iPhone X, Apple ditched Touch ID for the advanced and even more secure Face ID. And rumor says that Apple will ditch the Touch ID for good, in favor of Face ID, in all future iPhones.
The Face ID suppose to be even more secure than Touch ID and it can’t be fooled by a picture of you or even a Hollywood-grade mask.
It also won’t work if your eyes are closed and will certainly won’t work if you have sunglasses on – it can’t detect your eyes. It also won’t probably work if the sun is too bright and your face is overexposed.
Bottom line, Face ID works pretty well. At least that’s what early tests show us. But just like Touch ID when it was first introduced back in 2013 with the iPhone 5s, it’s new tech ( for Apple anyway ) and it will work like you expect it to work in a year or two.
So, right now, you basically spent your money just to animate chicken heads and flex on iPhone 8 users for some reason ( for the most part it’s the same phone ). Or you’re an early adopter. These days, an early adopter usually means you’re a YouTuber who looks for new way to destroy that iPhone and get views.
But let’s get back to the story… Face ID can’t be fooled by a super hi-rez pic of you, or a Hollywood mask, and it can’t be used by your significant other while you sleep ( Because unless you’re a rabbit, your eyes are closed while sleeping. And why is this a legit concern? ).
What about if you have a twin? Can your twin unlock your device using Face ID? Apparently yes.

I think that most people should wait for the second or even third generation of the iPhone X. Whatever the names will be. iPhone XI and iPhone XII?
I think that, for the astronomical price ( it’s still just a damn phone ), Apple should’ve offered the entry level iPhone X at 128GB not 64GB and there’s absolutely no excuse for not including a fast charger with the device. Or iPhone 8 for that matter.
And I’ve barely scratched the surface with what bothers me when it comes to the iPhone X and why I think most people should wait for the 2nd or 3rd gen if they want to spend that much money just to animate f*cking emojis.
Oh yeah, how can I forget that f*ckin horrendous notch? “But I can barely notice it”. Yeah, FU that’s just a disaster and hopefully it will be polished in the future.
That being said, I still think Apple is heading in the right direction with the iPhone X, and if you pre-ordered one, I think you will be super happy with it. As long as you don’t think about how much money you spent on it.
And, just like me, I bet you have ton of questions that still need to be answered about the iPhone X. You can start here.
Here’s a few first impressions from people who already got their hands on the iPhone X. Like Nilay Patel from The Verge, Marques Brownlee, Jonathan Morrison and CNET.
