The iPhone X reviews are in!

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] What's up. Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything, good and bad inside the world of Apple. The first impressions of the iPhone 10 are in. You know I don't Have mine yet. It's coming November 3rd and I'll be doing my own style review once I get it, because I don't get a free one from Apple. I spend my cold hard cash on it just like you and trust me, it makes a difference when you're actually paying for something. Now the consensus for most of the reviews is that it's a well built phone, the screen looks great, the notch is there and is kind of annoying, but can be forgotten to a certain degree. Face ID works and works pretty well in most cases. Mashable even did a video with twins. And in both of those situations, the other twin was able to unlock the iPhone. But there are times when it isn't as fast, and the biggest adjustment is really getting used to the removal of the home button and learning new gestures. And Apple gave most reviewers less than 24 hours to get their first impressions out, and even showed love by giving early access to a select few YouTubers, and finally validating the influence and power that the YouTube tech community has. The interesting thing to me is that, there was really not much of a mention of anemojis, it was more an afterthought in most of the first impressions. You know, one of the most distinguishing features of the 10 that's really a gag. But the power of this device will be unlocked by developers once they get time to leverage all of its' hardware and AR kit potential. Overall, the first looks are great for this top notch phone. [SOUND] Now I'll post my review next week after spending some real quality time with it, but I'd love to hear what you think in the comments since some of us will be getting it at the same time. So then what's next for many of you? Obsessing about when your iPhone 10 will actually arrive. Well check this out, you can actually track it in the air going to this link from Flight Aware. Now once you receive your UPS tracking number from Apple, the departure scan should match a time for a flight listed here. Click on the flight and you'll be able to see exactly where in the air your precious iPhone 10 is. Pretty cool and pretty obsessive. Now Face ID is the feature on the 10 bidding adieu to Apple's Touch ID. Rumors claimed Apple was working on Touch ID under the screen But in an interview with TechCrunch, Apple's hardware engineering chief Dan Riccio said, we spend no time looking at fingerprints on the back or through the glass or on the side because if we did those things, which would be a last-minute change they would be a distraction relative to enabling the more important thing That we were trying to achieve, which was Face ID done in a quality way. [NOISE] So, you're saying you spent no time at all. I present to you the Apple bite core Exhibit A, Apple's US patent number 9570002. Filled in November the 12th, 2012 and made public on February the 14th, 2017, for an Interactive display panel with IR diodes, that depicts using a fingerprint scan through a screen without a physical sensor. You know just saying. Now new updates to the entire family of Apple software has been released. IOS 11.1 brings over 70 new emojis that we've been talking about for like over a year. The return of 3D touch multi tasking, and a fix to the crack WiFi bug and more. Now, it is not a new feature to IOS, but image recognition search has been part of the photos app for about a year. It is not nearly as good as Google's, but Twitter user ellieewbu revealed that if you search for the word brassiere, the iPhone categorizes photos featuring bras automatically in a group. Like most users searchers show photos of bikinis, Lingerie or bare skin. And just to be clear it organizes them and does the search on the phone and doesn't send them to apple in a folder. But the real question is why did Apple feel the need to make brassiere one of the search words. Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to confirm it and also to show off her extensive collection of Look at me, I'm so hot pics. Like, I haven't tried it, but unfortunately for Apple by Nation, there are no pictures on my phone. Your honor, I object and I'd also like to bring up Exhibit B from Google search. Come on, Mitch, you can't show I was young. I told you I needed the money. I was a tough time, so wrong. Now watch OS 4.1 is out and you know what, I'm a fan of the new series LT the Apple watch right here. Especially it's battery life. Now 4.1 brings the LTE streaming to Apple Music and a new radio [UNKNOWN] stations like ESPN, Bloomberg, and our own CBS News Radio and your favorite genres of music. It's awesome Now Apple says the Series 3 watch will get up to seven hours of battery life when streaming Apple music over LTE. Five hours when streaming live radio and if your using the workout app, streaming audio, GPS and LTE all together, that's good for three hours. And that's only one hour less than you could before streaming music was even available. Now this just makes the Apple Watch Series 3 even better and I'm loving it. You just made my Apple Watch even better. You know what, that's a good Apple. Yeah! [NOISE] Plus, they also fixed that annoying messages app scrolling issue. That would drive me cray cray. [SOUND] All right, macOS High Sierra gets new emojis in its update and TVOS Also received updates and gave us video enthusiasts the ability to manually tweet the Apple Tv squad k output settings. You can do things like switch to dynamic range and frame rate options on or off, but I'm still waiting for, you know, Dolby Atmos support. Also Apple is acknowledging an issue where Edge Stripes are appearing on some Series U watches and appears to be a manufacturing defect that would be taken care of for free under the standard one-year warranty. Apple's internal memo obtained by [UNKNOWN] says GPS models are being affected by this and not cellular models. The edge strip may appear due to moisture collecting under the display. And Apple has never released a price point for its maxi pad looking AirPower wireless mat, but a Polish retailer published an online listing for AirPower that comes in around $199 US. It sounds about right. it's not cheap but you know you're gonna buy it. And we'd also like to take time, really just take a moment to honor three Macs that have now been declared obsolete or vintage by Apple who will no longer offer repair services or replacements for them. So Right now we'd just like to take a moment to honor them. [MUSIC] [SOUND] Mac Mini, you're so dead to me! Alright, let's announce our contest winners from last week for the Mophi goodies. I asked you what did I do after the Eddie Q quote, and the correct answer by over 1500 from you was that I wiggled it back and forth. You know that tongue thing. So yeah, I did. So the winners for the two juice pack air cases are on Twitter. Alianna Sabrina and Aaron Deel on email who said You put dat tongue all over da place. Now the GIF responses you all sent me, yeah they were funny. But the winner of the mofi double xl usb power station goes to this guy. Randy Vasquez. It's better if I just show you, you went, I did it better, I did it better. You know it, I win. Gross! That was disgusting. And it totally work, so congratulations to all of you. I'll be in touch. All right, that's gonna do for this show, you can email by us theapplebyte@cnet.com. You tweet me about Bryan Hong. Thanks for watching. We'll catch you on next time for another Byte of the Apple.
