    Just a rumor as far as Im concerned. Until Apple officially come out with a statement I take all rumors from so called analysts/sources with a grain of salt.

    Apple would not have committed to an exact launch date and launch in 55 countries in the first wave if they knew they wouldnt make it and if they did/do know, they would have released a public statement by now.

    Dont trust everything you read online. A lot of analysts/sources want their 15 mins of fame and they will say anything to get it.

    Not taking a jab but just a observation.

    It's quite strange seeing all these launch posts and the hype in SA after seeing almost none of it in Singapore.

    Apple tried to hype it but no one wants it, from launch day you could walk into any carrier or apple store and they had stock.

    IPhone x is what people want. Not a quad core iPhone 6. It is one of the worst iterations that Apple have released

    Its hexacore

    I think the 8 will do ok in SA largely because the general population wont be able to afford the X. Lets be honest, the contract price on the X is going to be gross.

    Possibly, and Im not preordering, I put it up for informational purposes only. But the x has some limitations that would stop me going that route - face ID vs Touch ID only because I think touch is better than face not because Im concerned they wont have cracked the seamless use of it and the narrow screen vs the current size on my plus. I want a plus sized X!! Next year hopefully.

    Agreed to both. But still, those bezels on the 8, it's a slap in the face :/

    More concerning is if they launch an 8S next year keeping with the same body.. they should have made this years the 7S gearing up for a redesign next year but I worry we havent seen the last of the trusted 6 design yet.

    Whats more baffling is that they expect pre-orders without any pricing announced.

    I dont know.

    I reckon its over for the old design.

    Next year will be X-like only in various sizes maybe.

    But well find out eventually.

    $74 to get iPhone fast charging is a waste of money—keep using your iPad chargers

    Dan Loewenherz, the founder of a software studio in Texas that helps startups turn ideas into working products, has take it upon himself to compare iPhone charging times by charger.

    TL;DR: all you need to charge your iPhone twice as fast is a 10/12W iPad charger.

    (By the way, Dan is also the brains behind a tremendously useful app that makes it easy to move your Health data from one iPhone to another).

    In comparing iPhone 8 Plus charging times by charger, Loewenherz has found out what I’ve suspected all along: fast charging using Apple’s 29-watt charger and USB-C to Lightning cable is only marginally faster than with an iPad charger and standard Lightning cable.

    Do yourself a favor, save a ton of money and just use an iPad charging brick with your iPhone.

    Consider for a moment that a Lightning to USB-C cable from Apple (only Apple sells these at the moment) is a $25 value. On top of that, you need a USB Power Delivery-compatible (USB-PD) charger from Apple, or a third-party one.

    Getting a 29W USB‑C Power Adapter as the least expensive Apple option is another $49 so you’re looking at a minimum cost of $74 to take advantage of Fast Charge support in iPhones.

    Go with either a 61W or 87W USB-C charger from Apple and you’re looking at a total of $94 and $104, respectively, to get a bit faster charging times than with a 29W adapter.

    Here are iPhone 8 Plus charging times with Apple chargers.

    Minutes to 50 percent:

    12W: 37 minutes
    29W: 33 minutes
    61W: 29 minutes

    The 29W and 61W chargers obviously get you faster from zero to the fifty percent mark, but Apple’s power controller ratchets down charge rates after 30 minutes so the difference is not as pronounced when charging the device from zero to 100 percent.

    Apple’s 29W charger takes about one and a half hours total to completely charge an iPhone 8 Plus from dead. The 12W charger and USB-C to iMac connection needs only 15 minutes longer to top up, AppleInsider has discovered.

    For context, it takes about 2.5 hours to achieve a full charge with Apple’s gratis 5W adapter.

    Of course, you don’t have to use Apple’s pricey chargers: there are more affordable options out there, but be sure that a third-party charger you’re buying uses USB-PD specification.

    Wireless charging is currently just as slow as the included 5W adapter, resulting in about ten percent gain every fifteen minutes. An upcoming software update due later this year will increase wireless charging speed by bringing power transfer rates up to 7.5W.

    BOTTOM LINE: if you care about iPhone charging speed and own an iPad, just use the included 10/12W wall brick for two times faster charging without needing to buy extra things.

    Alternatively plug your iPhone into a USB 3.0 port on a Mac.

    If you own an iPad Pro and an iPhone, it may make sense to upgrade to Apple’s 29W charger because not only will your tablet charge noticeable faster but you’ll get two times faster iPhone charging, too. Plus, you’ll have a spare iPad charger to carry in your bag or purse.

    And if you typically charge your iPhone overnight or while at your desk, then even the bundled 5W charger may suffice. Regardless, Apple should definitely do the right thing and start putting a 10-watt charger in the box with each iPhone instead of cheating out.

    And for those wondering about higher wattage charging negatively affecting battery health and life, Apple’s online store pages for the 10/12/29/61/87W chargers all mention iPhones in the Compatibility section so clearly the company condones using them with iPhones.

    Jony Ive reveals iPhone X took over two years to develop

    Apple spent more than two years developing its upcoming iPhone X flagship, the company’s Chief Design Officer Jony Ive said in a brief interview with Japanese design magazine Casa Brutus published Tuesday.

    First spotted by AppleInsider, the interview reveals that sophisticated features like Apple’s new depth-based facial recognition system dubbed Face ID and the TrueDepth camera have made iPhone X one of the most difficult projects the company has undertaken.

    iPhone X represents a new chapter in the rich history of iPhone, Ive said. The debut of the OLED device on the tenth anniversary of iPhone was a “wonderful coincidence,” he added.

    Ive went on to explain that Face ID is the culmination of years of work towards a user interface that doesn’t require physical interaction, saying the system enables a heightened user experience versus Touch ID.

    The designer hinted they’re already working to perfect the iPhone X’s integrated chassis and display as this will obviously become Apple’s default handset design going forward.
