There was plenty of fondling and hands-on time with the iPhone X after the Apple keynote, but no real-world time. Now, a new video has surfaced from YouTuber Brooke Amelia Peterson that gives us a quick real-world look at the new iPhone X in action. It looks like Ms. Brooke’s father works at Apple and she was treated to lunch at Caffè Macs. If you start the video around 2:30 and pause around 2:32 you can take note of his name. A quick Linkedin search of the name verifies he does indeed work for the company.
UPDATE (10/24/2017 4:50 p.m. ET): It looks like the original video has been removed but such is the internet, you can find a copy! Just check out the video after the blank video.
ORIGINAL STORY (cont):
In the video, Apple Pay using Face ID is demonstrated in a real-world setting and it seems to work without a hitch. There’s also a look at the notification shade, camera, and the screen.9TO5Mac points out that there are shortcuts to torch and camera in the Cover Sheet as well as the lock screen.
The more interesting thing to me is the physical girth of the phone. It seems very thick from this video but it’s hard to really tell. Also, watching the video could make some question that screen notch even further. At one point in the video, Ms. Brooke turns the iPhone revealing the serial number on the side. So this video may not be up for very long should Apple decide it needs to be removed. So it’s probably a good idea to check it out now before it does get removed. The action starts at around 2:30.
