Apple’s iPhone X: 8 Months Later

Stephen Hackett writes for 512 Pixels, “The iPhone X has been for sale for eight months, so I thought it was time to check in and see how things were going.”

Face ID is a huge change to the iPhone and, for me, I feel like it’s been pretty consistent… The iPhone X feels like this is how all iPhones will be from now on. — Stephen Hackett

MacDailyNews Take: For us, Face ID works great, but we’ll much appreciate “Face ID 2” which isn’t wedded to portrati orientation.

Apple hit a grand slam with the “swipe up” gestures of iPhone X. When they removed the Home button, iOS immediately got smoother and faster. Bravo, Apple!


  1. Most of the time, faceID is better than touchID, but sometimes it’s worse. What apple should do is add touch ID under the screen.

    It should also let you set how much security you want on things. For somethings maybe just faceID or just touchID, for other things, either, and for some things like banking, you need both.

    They should do the same on the mac. More security and options would be a good thing.

  2. My one complaint is that Face ID doesn’t work in the middle of the night when I don’t have my contacts in and am too lazy to put on my glasses. Other than that, it’s pretty spot on.

  3. My Face ID works perfectly with glasses on, glasses off, sunglasses, cigar in mouth, hat on head, totally dark, and any mix of these, etc. Only time it doesn’t work is with eyes closed, just as designed.

  4. We can Make Russia Great Again by removing Putin from our Home screens and using Face ID to ferret out the capitalist pigs who want to destroy Mother Russia Communism
