iPhone X: Bargain! You've just bagged yourself a cheap AR device

Apple fanbois being fanbois, Apple's new iPhone X isn’t "super expensive" but rather "totally worth it".

For fanbois only? Face ID is turning punters off picking up an iPhone X

As Apple bloggers anxiously try to be positive about Apple's Face ID, a poll suggests potential customers may actually be repelled by the face-scanning technology. 20 per cent of respondents in a poll of over 2,000 Britons said they were less likely to upgrade to an iPhone X because of concerns with Apple's new face …

OK, we admit it. Under the hood, the iPhone X is a feat of engineering

The iPhone X's face recognition may be experiencing teething problems but the thousand-quid handset is a masterpiece of engineering.

Web devs griping about iPhone X notch: You're rendering it wrong

WebKit, the open source project behind the rendering engine that powers Apple's Safari browser on macOS and iOS, has urged web designers to embrace "the notch," though not everyone is happy about doing so.

Massive iPhone X leak trashes Apple's 10th anniversary circus

Apple apparently deploys resources comparable to the security apparatus of a repressive Cold War Balkan state to try to prevent leaks. To very little effect.
