    Tech sounds cool, but position a phone to your face to unlock is much less elegant than resting your finger on the home button.

    Some of the world's greatest minds are being paid a fortune to animate a panda's gurn.

    Fucking hell.

    Face ID looks ace if it has a huge wide angle, and assuming it isnít utterly compromised by hackers, too slow or poor success rate. Skeptical, but I doubt Apple would bring it to market and irreparably damage their reputation and sabotage Apple Pay if it wasnít Touch ID +1 security wise.

    Failed on Federighi just then, awkward lol.

    I'm sure the Guardian et al will be creaming themselves over this as per usual.

    The X looks pretty good, but that cutout looks terrible. Iíll be ordering and expect it Dec 22nd.

    All I care about is the 8. My six went tits up a couple months ago and I've traveled back to about 2008 with the iPhone 3 I've been using in the meantime.

    It's amazing how much more time I have in my day separated from the frivolities of the internet unless sat at home.

    I find myself in a dilema of irony...

    "AirPower... They all charge!"

    Of course, wireless charging seriously degrades the overall lifespan of your battery, but this isn't mentioned.

    Was being sarcastic.

    Do think Animojis with face tracking will get done by everyone else.

    Honestly think that feature alone will sell shitloads of them. Sad but true.

    Seriously though, is this 'groundbreaking' stuff really worth a cool grand, or is it a blatant acknowledgement that they know people will buy their shit regardless?

    Apple could design a flip phone with an aerial in it, give it some Apple PR and people would lap it up. They're extraordinarily good at this shit.

    Right, taking bets on monthly contract price. I'm going with £60 min with at least a £150-£200 upfront cost.

    I'm pretty sure that isn't true anymore since newer wireless pads don't get hotter than the sun

    So, its an iPhone 8 with face ID for $1000.

    The edge-to-edge screen isn't really edge-to-edge either... The outer glass is but the actual pixels stop before the bezel. The Samsungs et al all do this better.

    I'm not really convinced this is going to shape the next decade of phones anymore than the 8 will. Face ID is cool but everything else is already being done in every other phone.
