The iPhone X is Apple’s leap into the future. The sleek design, dual camera, and advanced processing will be the benchmark of future iPhone models.

New features include an edge-to-edge OLED screen, Face ID, and Portrait Mode. With such drastic changes, it’s necessary to examine these new features of the iPhone X.

Let’s take a look at the iPhone X guide below.

Unboxing Your iPhone X

Nothing is more exciting than unboxing new products. When you unbox your iPhone X, you will find standard iPhone accessories underneath the iPhone.

You will find: These items include:

  • A Lightning USB cable
  • A standard 5W USB charger
  • An EarPod wired headphone
  • A  Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone adapter
  • Two Apple stickers inside of a setup guide/warranty manual
Did You Know:

Your iPhone X comes with 90 days of complimentary technical support and a one-year limited warranty.

What’s New

Edge-to-Edge OLED Screen


When you look at the iPhone X, it has a huge screen. Now that the bezel is removed, there is a black notch at the top of the device. This notch is where the front-facing camera and the front speaker is.

If you are watching a video or streaming a movie, you can easily hide the notch and have a full-screen experience with “zoom to fill.” Just pinch your thumb and index finger together to make the “zoom” command.

Face ID


If you’re worried about not having 3D Touch and a fingerprint security system, Face ID is equally or more secure.

It’s an advanced facial recognition security system that uses the TrueDepth camera to capture an accurate image of your face.

You can use Apple Pay, Keychain, and other authentications with Face ID.

Portrait Mode

Having a dual-camera system allows the iPhone X to take beautiful photos with TrueDepth. This function with a second telephoto lens turns your camera into a professional photographer.

The device can focus on objects and subjects while blurring the background.

Additionally, there are five effects for both the main and front-facing cameras (Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono).

Apps to download

One of the greatest features of the iPhone X is the dual camera.

With Portrait Mode and TrueDepth, you have all the tools to take professional photos. Although you can do basic editing on your device, try downloading different apps to have even more filters and effects.

Here are some apps that turn your iPhone X into your professional photographer:
