The moment we’ve all be waiting for finally came on 12th September, when Apple presented their new premium, anniversary smartphone model- the iPhone X. 

 The new iPhone comes with a starting price of £999 and showcases edge-to-edge OLED display, wireless charging and facial recognition technology.  

The model will be available in two colours- silver and space grey, and come with a choice of either a 64gb storage (£999) or 256gb (setting you back £1,149).

Apple have also ditched their traditional ‘home’ button and finger print scanning technology on this model in the hopes to create "an iPhone that is all display".

At the Apple event on Tuesday, at the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple's headquarters in California, Apple chief executive, Tim Cook, also announced that there would be an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus set to be released before the iPhone X. 

The iPhone 8 is said to have retina HD display, wireless charging and a new durable glass design. This model is priced more like other traditional models of the smartphones- starting at £649 for the 8, and £749 for the 8 plus. 

However, many people took to Twitter to express their concern regarding the hefty price tag that comes with the new iPhone models:

 

The iPhone X will be available to pre-order on October 27th, with the iPhone 8 and 8 plus available to pre-order a little earlier- on September 15th, here.

The iPhone X is without a doubt one of Apples' most expensive, state of the art phones- will you be buying it? Do you think it’s too expensive? Or is it perhaps worth it for the new technology? Let us know.
