New iPhones Launch

Behold the iPhone X …

California-based technology giant Apple launched its next generation smart phones this week – including the highly anticipated iPhone X.

“Say hello to the future,” the company boasted in unveiling its new 5.8-inch “super retina” phones, which boast facial recognition and a glass case that enables wireless charging.

According to Apple, its new facial ID software “projects and analyzes more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face.”

This new “facial mapping” is used to unlock the phone and authorize payments from the device.
