IPHONE X VIDEO

Brooke Amelia Peterson claims to have picked up the 10th anniversary iPhone when visiting her dad who works for Apple at the California HQ.

In the now deleted video which she posted on her YouTube channel she shows all the main features while sitting in the company’s cafeteria.

The video shows the elongated Side Button and Space Gray colouring on the back of the device. 

Ms Peterson activates the Control Centre and Cover Sheet as well as swiping through the Home Screen’s pages.

‘Dad has the new iPhone X’, says Ms Peterson in the video.

‘Look at how big the screen is… you just swipe to go back home’, she says.

‘This camera is what is so insane to me – see how good that looks’, she comments while filming herself.

The video shows the elongated Side Button and Space Gray colouring on the back of the device. 

The $999 (£999 in the UK) iPhone X features an edge-to-edge display with richer colours, and facial recognition software called Face ID that allows users to unlock the phone without the need for a fingerprint reader or physical home button 

During the video Ms Peterson and her father stop for lunch at Caffè Macs and pay for food using Apple Pay and Face ID. 

The pair also play with animoji. 

It is unclear why Ms Peterson has now removed the video from her YouTube channel. 

The new iPhone, which is being released on 3rd November, has an all new display, called the ‘super retina display.’

On the diagonal, the display is 5.8 inch, with over two million pixels – the highest resolution and pixel density ever seen in an iPhone.

It also features an OLED display.

With the phone, users will be able to raise it to wake, or tap the screen to wake – because Apple has ditched the home button.

To reach the home screen users now swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

To unlock the phone, users can now use facial recognition, which Apple calls Face ID.

At the launch in September Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple explained: ‘It is all screen, it is beautiful to look at, incredible to hold. There has never been anything like it.’ 

‘It’s the point of this technology that matters – it’s easier to use, and more intuitive.’
