Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience. And so intelligent it can respond to a tap, your voice, and even a glance. With iPhone X, that vision is now a reality. Say hello to the future.
Design and Display
It’s all screen.
How do you create a deeply intelligent device whose enclosure and display are a single, uninterrupted element? That’s the goal we first set for ourselves with the original iPhone. With iPhone X, we’ve achieved it.
The purest expression of iPhone.
To create a continuous surface, with nothing to get in the way of your experience, we replaced the Home button with new yet familiar ways to navigate.
Intuitive gestures make it easy to get around.
- Home – A single swipe from the bottom takes you home.
- Multitasking – To reveal all your open apps, simply swipe up and pause.
- Control Center – Swipe down to instantly open the customizable Control Center.
- Siri – Press and hold the side button to ask Siri a question.
- Apple Pay – Double-click the side button to make secure purchases with Apple Pay.
So much technology. In so little space.
The TrueDepth camera system allows you to take amazing photos and enables Face ID. It’s housed in a tiny space at the top of the display, yet within this miniaturized module are some of the most advanced technologies we’ve ever developed.
Introducing Super Retina. Beauty through engineering.
The OLED panel in the Super Retina HD display isn’t just any OLED. It’s custom built to our exacting standards, allowing for an HDR display with a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio, high resolution and brightness, wide color support, and the best color accuracy in the industry.
- 5.8” Super Retina HD display1
- 2436×1125 resolution
- 458 pixels per inch
Brilliance to the edges.
Using innovative folding and circuit stacking technology, the OLED panel follows the curves of the device into the farthest reaches of the corners. Then it uses a process called subpixel anti-aliasing to tune individual pixels for smooth, distortion-free edges.
The best color accuracy in the industry.
The advanced color management system in the Super Retina HD display is the best in the industry. Which means that whatever color mode your content uses — P3, sRGB — iPhone X automatically displays in that format. So the colors you see are the colors the director or designer intended.
True Tone. For a more comfortable viewing experience.
True Tone technology uses an advanced six‑channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the color temperature of the light around you. So images on the display look as natural as on a printed page, reducing eyestrain.
HDR. Now playing for the first time on iPhone.
iPhone X is a true High Dynamic Range (HDR) display. You can watch movies and shows in Dolby Vision and HDR10. Your HDR photos will look even more amazing. And you’ll be able to watch HDR titles from iTunes, Netflix, and more.
The most durable glass ever in a smartphone.
The front and back are all glass — the most durable we’ve ever made, with a strengthening layer that’s 50 percent deeper. A seven-layer ink process allows for precise hues and opacity, and a reflective optical layer enhances the colors. And an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints.
Wireless charging for a wireless world.
We’ve always intended iPhone to be a truly wireless device, free from charging cables and headphone cords. With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone X is designed for a wireless future.
Surgical‑grade stainless steel.
The stainless steel band that wraps around and reinforces iPhone X is a special Apple-designed alloy that’s both durable and more pure, and it polishes beautifully. For the space gray finish, we use a process called physical vapor deposition to precisely match the color of the stainless steel band to that of the glass.
Resists water, splashes, and dust.
iPhone X is precision-engineered at the microscopic level to protect against water, splashes, and dust.
A revolution in recognition.
What could be more natural than a touch? A look. That was the insight behind Face ID, a powerful and secure authentication system that’s even more convenient than Touch ID. It makes unlocking and paying fast, easy, and intuitive.
The incredible technology behind incredible simplicity.
The TrueDepth camera system is composed of multiple innovative technologies. Working together in real time, they use a detailed depth map of your face to recognize you in an instant.
- Dot Projector – More than 30,000 invisible dots are projected onto your face to build your unique facial map.
- Infrared Camera – An infrared camera reads the dot pattern, captures an infrared image, then sends the data to the Secure Enclave in the A11 Bionic chip to confirm a match.
- Flood Illuminator – Invisible infrared light helps identify your face even when it’s dark.
Your face is your secure password.
With Face ID, iPhone X unlocks only when you’re looking at it. It’s also designed to protect against spoofing by photos and masks. Your Face ID information is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave. And it’s private — your data doesn’t leave your device and is never backed up to iCloud or anywhere else.
Once it knows you, it knows you.
Face ID uses advanced machine learning to recognize changes in your appearance. Wear a hat. Grow a beard. Put on glasses. You can even use Face ID with many types of sunglasses. So even if your friends don’t recognize you, Face ID will.
So smart it only works when you want it to.
For additional security, Face ID is attention aware, meaning it unlocks your iPhone X only when you look toward the device with your eyes open. That means Face ID can also reveal notifications and messages, keep the screen lit when you’re reading, or lower the volume of an alarm or ringer.
How much innovative thinking can you fit into a tiny space? Quite a lot, it turns out. The TrueDepth camera system houses sophisticated cameras and sensors for new capabilities only possible with iPhone X.
Tremendous innovation in a minuscule space.
An intricate system of powerful technologies work with A11 Bionic to enable Face ID, selfies with Portrait mode, and Animoji.
Face ID. Your face is your secure password.
The revolutionary authentication system in iPhone X begins with data captured by the TrueDepth camera. Sensors read the unique geometry of your face and compare it to information protected by the Secure Enclave of the A11 Bionic chip. If there’s a match, iPhone X unlocks.
Portrait mode. For selfies with real depth.
Shoot selfies with a depth-of-field effect that puts your face in sharp focus against an artfully blurred background. The TrueDepth camera, along with the A11 Bionic chip, captures the photo and creates this effect with the tap of a finger.
Portrait Lighting. For selfies with studio effects.
Inspired by extensive research into the art and science of portraiture, all-new Portrait Lighting uses sophisticated algorithms to calculate how your facial features interact with light. Then it uses that data to create stunning lighting effects.
- Natural Light – Your face in sharp focus against a blurred background.
- Studio Light – A clean look with your face brightly lit.
- Contour Light – Dramatic shadows with highlights and lowlights.
- Stage Light – Your face spotlit against a deep black background.
- Stage Light Mono – Like Stage, but in classic black-and-white.
Animoji. A new way to get into character.
Admit it. You’ve always wanted to be a unicorn. Working with the A11 Bionic chip, the TrueDepth camera captures and analyzes more than 50 different muscle movements, then mirrors your expressions in any of 12 different Animoji.
Share the fun.
Animoji include your voice, and you can share your videos within Messages.
Clips. Create videos that take you to new worlds.
Clips is a free app that lets you make fun, shareable videos with text, graphics, effects, and more. Selfie Scenes on iPhone X make Clips even more fun, using the TrueDepth camera to place you in 360‑degree animated landscapes, abstract art, and even onboard the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Dual 12MP Cameras
The art of photography. Simplified.
Can a camera capture more than meets the eye? To find out, we integrated faster, optically image-stabilized cameras with the advanced machine learning of the A11 Bionic chip. The result is a photography system that sees more, understands more, and does more.
- 12MP – wide-angle and telephoto lenses
- ƒ/1.8 – wide-angle aperture
- ƒ/2.4 – telephoto aperture
- OIS – Dual optical image stabilization
An ƒ/1.8 six-element lens, optical image stabilization (OIS), and a larger, faster 12MP sensor make the most popular camera in the world even better.
Using a state-of-the-art seven-magnet solution, iPhone X includes a second OIS system in the powerful ƒ/2.4 telephoto camera. Together the two cameras enable optical zoom to bring you closer to your subject. And deliver amazing shots with Portrait mode.
Portrait mode. For a more beautiful depth‑of‑field effect.
Portrait mode gets even better, with sharper detail, more natural background blurring, improved performance in low light, and access to the flash when you need it.
Portrait Lighting. Real-time studio lighting effects.
Based on core photographic lighting principles, Portrait Lighting combines complex software and hardware like depth‑sensing cameras and facial mapping to produce the effect of real studio lighting.
New advanced ISP. Photo ops, optimized.
The intelligent, Apple-designed image signal processor detects elements in the scene — like people, motion, and lighting conditions — to optimize your photos even before you take them. It also delivers advanced pixel processing, wide color capture, faster autofocus, and better HDR photos.
Dual OIS. For images that shine in low light.
One of the hardest things in photography is getting great photos and videos in low light. Optical image stabilization in both rear cameras makes it effortless. So when the day ends, your creativity is just beginning.
New filters. Better flash. More fun.
From the moment you capture a photo to your final edit, iPhone X makes it even easier to create spectacular shots. And next-generation HEIF compression technology lets you take new photos with the same quality as before at half the file size. So snap away.
Live Photo Effects and New Filters
Transform a Live Photo you love into a fun video loop. Make it bounce back and forth. Turn fireworks into bright streaks across the sky with a beautiful long exposure effect. And apply new filters for more natural skin tones or to add classic looks to portraiture.
Quad-LED True Tone Flash with Slow Sync
Slow Sync flash combines a slow shutter speed with a short strobe pulse. It’s useful in low light when you want a brighter foreground subject with a properly exposed background. And the Quad-LED True Tone flash delivers illumination that’s up to two times more uniform, helping to reduce hot spots.
Videos that belong on the big screen.
Whether you’re a proud parent, a film student, or a working director, iPhone X lets you shoot phenomenal movies. An Apple‑designed video encoder performs real-time image processing for optimal quality. And with HEVC compression, you’ll get the same video quality as before at half the file size.
- 4K video – up to 60 fps
- Slo-mo – 1080p up to 240 fps
- Time‑lapse – video
Advanced video stabilization uses a new, larger sensor and the powerful ISP to stabilize everything you’re shooting. And optical image stabilization is designed to reduce motion blur and handshake in low-light videos. So your movies look steady even if your hand isn’t.
Can you create a chip that’s both powerful and intelligent? Meet A11 Bionic, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone.
With six cores and 4.3 billion transistors, A11 Bionic has four efficiency cores that are up to 70 percent faster than the A10 Fusion chip, and two performance cores that are up to 25 percent faster. The CPU can even harness all six cores simultaneously when you need a turbo boost.
