    Display and camera improvements look promising


    No touch ID, no buttons, no headphone jack (😎)

    I don't think completely removing touch ID is a smart idea. There are situations where I don't want to bring the phone to my face to unlock. Gestures don't work for everyone. I still prefer Android's on-screen buttons to a completely gesture-based invisible UI for basic tasks.

    Big Screen to Body ratio, Face ID


    Status Bar UI seems strange

    I think they could have leveraged the OLED tech to make the status bar blend in with the casing. They could have used 3Dtouch to provide a home-button-esque feel when interacting with the bottom gesture bar.

FaceID will steal your soul after 3 failed attempts. (my best tweet of the event)

@nivo0o0 Nah, it's the most advanced, natural, and intuitive exfoliation experience ever on a smartphone.

This "iPhone X first look" from the Verge is super interesting. For one thing, it will take a day or two to get used to the new swipe up on left/right side of the screen and learning the new app gestures. But more importantly... Face ID. It seems like all you have to do to unlock somebody's phone is point it at the person, and it will work, no matter what, as long as they have their eyes open. 😨

@nivo0o0 you lose a part of your soul every time you use Animojis

@nivo0o0 Re: what if someone steals an #iphoneX and points it to the owner's face? All it takes for Apple is pairing fingerprints ID of the hand holding the phone with the FaceID.

This may be the biggest update to the iPhone in the last several years. It's expensive but I think I'll pull the trigger. Thoughts?

@rrhoover I'm still wondering how to unlock it without Face ID (let's say something is broken); the back to home seems intuitive, but I'm curious to try the multitasking, knowing how I'm (we, I guess) using the phone with fast gestures I may end up in the Home all the time. Btw, it looks definitely cool and honestly I thought it was more expensive (same for the 8). I think the camera part at the top it will be super annoying when watching videos in landscape tho. Also, I'm wondering one more thing, where's the iPhone 9?

@rrhoover @mrdobelina it happened during the demo - when face ID didn't work it came up with passcode - similar to when your touchID doesn't work.

@rrhoover @mrdobelina when faceId doesn't work, we get to unlock with passcode

@calebulf ah you're right, I remember something weird happened when the demo started. So from now on is either face or type your code. I'm not sure is that great compared to Touch ID. I'm talking to someone and need to unlock the phone "ehm sorry let me watch my phone instead of you so I can show you pics of cute cats"

Anyone else underwhelmed?
Scott@scotty_mcq · Electrical Designer
@alexgoodison definitely. Especially compared to like the S8 and company. If it came out last year, then I would be more wowed.
Alex@alexgoodison · Founder of Swiipe & on the WorkClub Team
@scotty_mcq Yes. Apple making a big deal out of wireless charging even though Samsung has had that for 2 years now? (or more, correct me if I am wrong) Not buying the Animoji gimmick and I don't know if they realised that Snapchat has been doing face filters for 2 years now. Switching from TouchID is also a huge risk. As an iOS developer, I am worried

As an iOS dev, no enthusiasm for #ARKit?
Alex@alexgoodison · Founder of Swiipe & on the WorkClub Team
@ernopp I’ve been using Qualcomm’s Vuforia for a while which has worked quite well. ARKit only works on 6s and above aswell. Another gimmick??

@alexgoodison well during the keynote Craig Federighi pulled up Snapchat and was playing with the face filters, I think to demonstrate AR on the new iPhone.

I get the bezel-less edge-to-edge screen appeal, but that top-notch is a bit annoying in video playbacks. Is it just me or do I just have to just get use to it?
Scott@scotty_mcq · Electrical Designer
@webjoe I kinda liked the essential where it was just a little dot but at least they don't use the status area for video playback. That seems... dumb.

@webjoe pretty sure there will be black bars in video playback. It's mostly with ar/camera where that will get in the way. That being said, I DO think Steve would have found a way to hide that.
