There’s a simple workaround for the iPhone X cold weather problem

It's not been a great few weeks for smartphone screen issues, but at least with the iPhone X's newly-discovered cold weather problems there's an easy workaround. The new iOS flagship was making headlines for its controversial "notched" OLED panel, but now some owners are reporting issues which aren't just aesthetic. Turns out, the iPhone X is pretty temperature-sensitive.

iPhone X bug causes touch problems in cold weather

Some iPhone X owners are reporting an unusual issue in which the phone's display becomes unresponsive or laggy when the handset is exposed to a cold environment. The biggest example of this seems to be someone stepping from inside of a warm house out into the cold outdoors. Owners experiencing this problem say the unresponsiveness takes place immediately, not just when the phone itself cools down.

Apple Clips 2.0 “Selfie Scenes” tap iPhone X and Star Wars

Apple Clips 2.0 “Selfie Scenes” tap iPhone X and Star Wars

Apple has released Clips 2.0, a new version of its free video creation app, and if you've got an iPhone X it's a must-have download. The new video editing app taps into the TrueDepth camera that occupies the "notch" in the iPhone X's display. Until now, that's primarily been used for the Face ID security system, but Clips 2.0 puts it to much more entertaining use.

iPhone X clear back mod will make you think twice

iPhone X clear back mod will make you think twice

The switch, or return, to having glass rather than metal or plastic on the back of phones has a few advantages. Those include wireless charging, some rather fascinating designs, and the ability to have a clear back cover. The latter seems to have become a niche fad among enthusiasts, one that has inspired many to risk breaking their phones in the process. Naturally, the $1,000 iPhone X is no exception, and EverythingApplePro embarked on the journey so that you won’t have to. And after seeing this, you really might not want to.

iPhone X profit margin higher than 8, Galaxy S8, Huawei Mate 10

This week the cost of parts inside the iPhone X have been calculated, and it would seem that Apple's got profit on point. According to TechInsights, the profit margin for the iPhone X is a whopping 64%, coming up just above the iPhone 8, with a profit margin of 59.2%. Like previous estimations from the same source, these numbers are based on street price and the cost of the parts that make up the device - they do not account for the many other costly elements that make for a new smartphone, like manufacturing.

There's a market out there for people who want to live in this touchscreen-heavy world whilst still slamming their hand on the top of a giant alarm clock. For those people, there's the Kurrent.

iPhone X on DxOMark: best for stills, just OK for videos

iPhone X on DxOMark: best for stills, just OK for videos

Much of the attention lavished on the iPhone X hasn’t been on the screen as you might expect. Instead, it focused more on the one feature you couldn’t not see but could see you. While the jury is still out on Face ID’s reliability, there are plenty of other iPhone X features to explore. Curiously, the camera hasn’t received as much attention this time around, probably because of how nearly identical it is to the iPhone 8 Plus, which did receive high marks. The good news is that the iPhone X is even better.

iPhone X drop tests remain inconclusive

iPhone X drop tests remain inconclusive

Given the iPhone X’s $1,000 price tag, the biggest concern consumers have isn’t going to be whether Face ID can be fooled by their long-lost twin sibling. It will be whether the most expensive iPhone ever will survive an accidental drop from your hand, pocket, or bag. Compounding matters is the fact that a screen replacement will cost $279 while a back replacement will cost $549, at least without an AppleCare+ extended warranty. So how does the iPhone X fare in such unwanted incidents? Unfortunately, tests don’t exactly give an answer to those.

With all the attention on OLED screens lately, all eyes - no pun intended - have been on the iPhone X's first use of the technology. While the early feedback from reviewers has been glowing, it's now time for the panel experts to weigh in, and if you're Apple the news is good. Turns out, Samsung Display has made the iPhone X a very good screen.

Nintendo needs to make Pokemon Animoji for iPhone X like, yesterday

Nintendo needs to make Pokemon Animoji for iPhone X like, yesterday

I've seen the Animoji in Apple's iPhone X and I cannot understand how Nintendo is not already a partner. How on earth is Nintendo not already working with The Pokemon Company, for example, to bring Pikachu Animoji to the iPhone X? Or maybe they already are, and we just have to wait until Apple opens the doors to 3rd-party contributions!

iPhone X keyboard gap: There’s a reason for that

iPhone X keyboard gap: There’s a reason for that

The iPhone X launched last week, and it represents a big change from what iPhone users are used to in a handset. Some of these differences are much more obvious than others - the edge-to-edge OLED display and the missing home button will be the two differences that are immediately noticeable for many. However, there are plenty of smaller changes to be found within the iPhone X, and one that has been getting some attention is the new look of the iOS keyboard.

Did this iPhone X warning come thanks to Google?

Did this iPhone X warning come thanks to Google?

Over the weekend, iPhone X support documents revealed a bit of a warning about the newest phone in Apple's collection. Warning - or warnings, plural - included how the user's experience with an OLED display might go. This is important because Apple's never used an OLED display before - but that's probably not the only reason this set of paragraphs of warning were put in place.
