Apple iPhone X super cycle won't happen until 2018: Ming-Chi Kuo

Apple iPhone X super cycle won't happen until 2018: Ming-Chi Kuo

The iPhone X isn't available for pre-order until closer to the end of this month. Certain use cases really only make sense with a mobile device, especially in regards to user-generated content, but security measures for unlock and Apple Pay could offer something new to the iPad Pro line. The phone also appears to be on AT&T's network.

This year Apple made news with the iPhone X, and more importantly, the introduction of Face ID feature for facial recognition.

The notch gives the iPhone X a unique design that will be easily recognized by anyone.

Here's another iPhone X sighting from Reddit.

Apple added that the iPhone X has a display with stupefy vivid colors, blacks are blacks, a million-to-one contrast ratio and wide color gamut support with the best system-wide color management in a handheld device to date. Obviously we all know what an iPhone X looks like but this video is most interesting because of the iPhone X wallpaper shown.

Ms. Wu reportedly plugged in the device with the cable and charger that came with the iPhone 8 Plus, but the handset split open after several minutes.

It's not clear what the fate of the Home button and Touch ID will be now that Face ID is gaining prominence.

iPhone fans can easily tell when someone is using an iPhone X. So can iPhone haters. So while some analysts have pointed to weak iPhone 8 sales as a sign of weakness, Kuo maintains that overall iPhone 8 demand is where it should be given the looming launch of the iPhone X. While the iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 were the most popular phones for the first half of 2015, 2016 and 2017 respectively, market share for each phone declined from 10% to 7% and then 5% this year.
