Caviar iPhone X Tesla sacrifices beauty for solar charging

Apple takes great pride in developing products that are as beautiful as they are useful. Although some will argue that the latest iPhones have diverged slightly, they still have an air of elegance to them. Leave it to Russian company Caviar to take that long-standing philosophy and turn it on its head. From the company that brought you iPhones with Trump’s and Putin’s faces comes the iPhone X Tesla, a smartphone that charges via the sun by putting ribbed solar panels on the iPhone X originally fashionable glass back.

Best Buy stops iPhone X premium price sales after buyers revolt

The iPhone X is a pricey phone and Best Buy wasn't helping things by charging a $100 premium on top of the regular price tag.

iPhone X Face ID is a learning curve worth teaching

Goodbye home button, goodbye Touch ID, hello iPhone X and facial recognition. Apple can be ruthless about getting rid of features it thinks have overstayed their welcome (headphone jack, I'm looking at you) but few have been so controversial as the new iPhone flagship's switch from fingerprint security to facial recognition. Unsurprisingly, it hasn't been a change that's been universally loved.

Dear friends and SlashGear readers, if you pre-ordered the iPhone X in time for delivery on November 3, or even within a week of that, congratulations. If you didn’t pre-order for whatever reason, and have even the slightest interest in Apple's new flagship, then I’m very sorry to tell you that when your friends, family, and colleagues show up with their shiny new iPhone X, you’re really going to wish you did.

The iPhone X makes a strong case to buy AppleCare+

The iPhone X makes a strong case to buy AppleCare+

The iPhone X is arguably a beautiful device, even with that notch. Some have fallen in love with it, even before the phone actually ships to anyone in the world. But the iPhone X is also without question an expensive device, costing $1,000. Given that price, it seems that putting in another $200 for AppleCare+ seems to be pushing it. You might simply shrug your shoulders and leave your fate in the hands of chance and good fortune. But you will, in effect, be leaving it up to chance and good luck to save you from spending $550 for each and every unforeseen incident, which is always lurking around the corner.
