"On older phones the sequence was to click 5 times [on the power button], but on newer phones like iPhone 8 and iPhone X, if you grip the side buttons on either side and hold them a little while - we'll take you to the power down [screen]". The iPhone 8's estimates are at 14 hours (talk time), 12 hours (internet use), 13 hours (video playback), and 40 hours (audio playback).

Apple has announced price cuts for its iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones in the India.

KitGuru Says: I'm sure many of you have ideas of horror stories in your head over Face ID, similar to when Touch ID was first released.

And if you've always wanted to look like an alien, don't worry, they've got you covered too.

The Apple iPhone X comes for Rs 89,000 in India. This anxious Krimbel who asked if every time someone else looks into the iPhone and, understandably, is unable to unlock it, will the phone ask for a passcode.

Apple's all new facial recognition feature called Face ID is in trouble already. However, the 256GB model of the iPhone X crosses even that barrier and has been priced at a whopping Rs 1,02,000.

However an FAQ on the network's site confirms that users who buy a Watch from other retailers, such as Apple, Argos, John Lewis or Currys, can easily add an EE data plan direct from the device as part of the pairing process. The most noteworthy differences: The iPhone 8 lacks the dual-cameras and new Portrait Mode and Lighting features of the iPhone 8 Plus. If you want to max out your storage at 256GB, the X is about $56.16 a month, which is pretty reasonable for the latest, greatest smartphone in the universe.

E-commerce sites such as AliExpress and Taobao are selling masks for iPhone X users to wear when they are asleep or when they are outdoors and do not wish to have their phones opened by someone else.

Krimbel also raised concern over the situation where the user is wearing sunglasses to which Federighi responded saying that most sunglasses will not interfere with the biometric scan. However, the iPhone 8 and the Plus both have the button. Both are Retina HD displays and feature Apple's True Tone technology. As a result, the iPhone X apparently boasts of 70% better performance than its predecessors.
