Better get saving if you want one!
Apple has finally revealed its next release: The iPhone X.
Whilst the highly anticipated iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have officially launched, the technology giant also announced the launch of a couple of other new devices.
Here’s everything you need to know about the latest must-have Apple phone.
Twitter was in disarray when Apple executives started calling it the iPhone 10 on stage, despite it being named the ‘iPhone X’… which many thought meant it was actually called the iPhone ‘Ex’.
Like all the other models, the latest release follows the numerical naming strategy of all the other devices.
I can't be the only one saying iPhone "ex" in their head instead of iPhone "ten" right?— Shimmery Avocado (@IvyKungu) September 12, 2017

It’s arguably the best looking iPhone to date. And in terms of its tech spec, it’s also pretty good.
It’s got an edge-to-edge OLED display (we mean… FINALLY!), wireless charging, Face ID and special face-scanning technologies which let you animate an emoji to copy your expression.
However, with the addition of some features, we’ve actually lost a physical home button on the latest model.
The iPhone X will have glass on both the front and back of the device, with Apple deeming it an “all-glass design”.
Apparently, it’s the “most durable” ever used in any smartphone so fear not if you’re prone to dropping it on a night out.
Apparently, the iPhone X is going to have two hours more battery life than the iPhone 7.
Yeah, we’ll believe that when we see it.
It’s only going to come in two colours: silver or space grey.
It’s not available for pre-order until October 27th 2017, with initial shipping expected to happen on November 3rd.
