It’s got a huge screen nestled within slim, barely-there bezels. It’s got a way for you to unlock it by just looking at it. It’s got a sick camera. It’s got an all-powerful notch! Much iPhone-related hot air has passed through the lips of the technorati in these last few weeks. Today, finally, the iPhone X arrives in the hands of buyers diligent enough to have scooped a first-round preorder from Apple. So let’s put the conversation to bed (for now) by going deep on the X. Welcome to the future. The future is now.
Some notes: David’s review of the iPhone X. Steven Levy’s first look at the handset. Our initial camera tests. Our attempts to foil Face ID. For Android users, here’s a kitty cat. Recommendations this week: Flipbin for your LPs, the Philips Wake-Up Light, and Apollo, a mobile Reddit client for iOS. Send the hosts feedback on their personal Twitter feeds. Arielle Pardes is @pardesoteric, David Pierce is @pierce, and Michael Calore is @snackfight. Bling the main hotline at @GadgetLab. Our theme song is by Solar Keys.
