Tim Cook reckons $999 is a value price for the iPhone X


We get it, the iPhone X is packed with features but saying that the price is worthy of such leaps forward like an edge-to-edge display (done by Samsung and Xiaomi before) and facial recognition (done to a degree by Samsung and Windows Hello) just feels like you're trying to pull a fast one.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook sure doesn't think so. And if you want an affordable device, you can go for the iPhone SE, iPhone 7, or 7 Plus. Just a few days ago, Kuo relayed that the iPhone X will be in "severe short supply" for some time as Apple, as it stands today, can only manufacture upwards of 10,000 units a day. "Also, most people actually trade in their current phone, and so that reduces the prices further, and some carriers even throw in, you know, subsidies and discounts", said Cook. Baig summed it up with a few pros (iOS 11, excellent camera) and a con: that the device is between the iPhone X and "other fine iPhones that are cheaper". It's simple, they want the iPhone X that will provide other features, an wonderful screen, good camera and at a price that will be a little over the one for iPhone 8 Plus. If you hadn't noticed, the new wearable's signature feature seems to be half-baked at best, with several reviews calling out the spotty LTE connectivity and the gadget's habit of trying to connect to unauthorized Wi-Fi networks. Apple has introduced a new Face ID to verify your identity in split seconds and authenticate payments via Apple Pay. There's also an all-new "Super Retina" resolution, a reinforced glass design and support for wireless charging, with the iPhone X arriving with support for the Qi charging standard. The data captured is processed directly by the neural engine which Apple embedded directly onto the A11 Bionic chip.

Consumers are more excited about the iPhone X than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which were unveiled at the same event last week. This would make customers take a closer look to the iPhone 8. They will hit the store shelves this Friday.
