5 days ago   |   By

The new iPhone X , which Apple revealed on Tuesday, is the most futuristic, most expensive phone Apple has ever built.
But have you seen that notch at the top of the phone? Yuck.
Dave Smith/Business Insider
Apple event attendees who got to try the phone already say the iPhone X is easily the most gorgeous iPhone ever built, especially with its edge-to-edge OLED screen that Apple calls its "Super Retina Display." Between that, wireless charging, updated internals and more, the phone seems to be worth its $1,000-to-start asking price .
But again, there's that notch - the lone blemish on an...

T-Mobile is offering a $300 discount on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X - but there's a big catch

Moments after Apple announced the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X on Tuesday, T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted that the carrier would offer up to $300 off any new iPhone in exchange for an old iPhone trade-in.
But there's one big catch: the $300 credit will be broken up over the course of a 24-month payment installment plan.
So instead of getting a $300 credit up front for trading in an old iPhone for a new one, T-Mobile will award $12.50 in credit per month for two years.
The promotion applies to any iPhone 6 or newer in good working condition that's traded in for an iPhone 7 or newer...

Apple Apple announced its new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and fancy iPhone X on Tuesday during its September event, and it wasn't shy when it boasted about all the new features and power of its new devices.

How to use Apple's new iPhone X, which doesn't have a home button

How to use Apple's new iPhone X, which doesn't have a home button

5 days ago   |   By

Business Insider To bring us an edge-to-edge display on the iPhone X, Apple had to ditch the familiar home button that used to live on the bottom bezel of older iPhone models.
The home button on current iPhones serves several uses, like waking and unlocking the phone if you didn't have any security , housing the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, bringing you back to the home screen from an app, pulling up the multitasking app slider menu, using Apple Pay, and summoning Siri.
So, without a home button, you may be wondering how you'd do any of the above with the home button-less iPhone X. Check...

The most futuristic feature in the iPhone X sounds like a big security headache

5 days ago   |   By

Apple One of the standout features in the high-end iPhone X, which Apple revealed on Tuesday, is Face ID.
Since the iPhone X is the first iPhone without a home button, you can't use your fingerprint to unlock your phone. Instead, the iPhone X projects 30,000 invisible dots on your face and analyzes them to authenticate your identity - and it all happens in milliseconds.
Unfortunately, you can see how people might take advantage of this.
In the demo area following Apple's event, people got their first glimpse at how Face ID actually works on the iPhone X. But since attendees couldn't...

5 days ago   |   By

Netflix has a pretty robust selection of TV shows and movies that take advantage of those features, but the real boon for Netflix is that getting access to titles in 4K requires its expensive plan.
