Gold iPhone X is real: Official certification photos

Apple may release iPhone X in gold later this year. Apple’s iPhone X launched last year in two colors – silver and space gray, contrary to the rumors that there would be also a gold version. But now, leaked photos from the U.S. FCC agency that approves all smartphones for use in the country, have revealed the Gold iPhone X.

A third-party screen repair for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is not a solution anymore, according to a report by Vice. iPhone 8 owners who have their displays replaced by a third-party service provider have reported that the touchscreen functionality is not working after the procedure. It appears it’s the iOS 11.3 update that disabled the connection between the display and the smartphone if it’s not replaced by an authorized company or Apple itself. Apple may be using a custom chip that enables the touch input, which means the[…]

Here is how the curved iPhone may look like

Renders show a possible iPhone with a curved display. Earlier this week, we talked about how Apple may be creating a curved iPhone whose display is curved from top to bottom, not at the side edges like the Galaxy S9+ and other premium models. In fact, LG already created such a device in 2015 – called the LG G Flex. It was an interesting smartphone, but the complexity of the design resulted in a very high price, so the mainstream market rejected it. A few years later, the technology may be advanced enough to satisfy the consumers and offers a[…]
