The recent slew of issues, be it hardware or software, coming from brand new smartphone models might have some wondering if quality control is going downhill or if users have just become too meticulous about their devices. And since some of these involve really expensive smartphones, the expectations of perfection are even higher.

iPhone X Face ID beaten with 3D-printed mask

With its new flagship iPhone X, Apple has touted just secure the device's Face ID technology is, and for the most part it's been a hit, with relatively few reports of the system not working properly or letting the wrong person unlock the phone. The security researchers at Bkav, however, have gone to great lengths to thwart the facial recognition technology, to see what it would take. Turns out they've found success using a strange-looking 3D-printed mask.

Some iPhone X displays have developed a bright green line

Some iPhone X owners are reporting that a bright green line has developed on their handset's display. The line is terribly thick on some phones, though very slim on others, typically running vertically from top to bottom on either the right or left side. Restarting the phone doesn't get rid of the green line, according to affected users, who say that Apple is replacing the devices with new units.

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.

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

Today Apple fixed one of the strangest errors in code the company's likely ever had to deal with. The newest version of iOS corrects the software's autocorrection of the letter "i." Autocorrect of the letter I in its lower-cased form became quite a significant sort of nonsense for users over the past week, as you can imagine, since most users aren't too keen on making certain every I is capitalized.

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

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 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.
