Apple iPhone X receives FCC certification

With pre-orders for the Apple iPhone X starting in 22 days, and the launch taking place (at least for now) on November 3rd, the tenth anniversary iPhone has finally been certified by the FCC. That action allowed Apple to remove the disclaimer from its website that said it could not sell or lease the device without receiving authorization from the government regulatory agency. A trio of iPhone X models now have the green light to be offered for sale in the states.

The FCC must test all devices that will be sold in the U.S. with a radio inside. The regulatory agency makes sure that these products won't cause harmful interference or expose users to dangerous Radio Frequency (RF) levels.

While Apple has yet to change the launch date for the device, a report yesterday claims that Apple is achieving a yield rate of under 10% with the production of the phone. The low yield rate is believed to be due to the complexity involved in producing the TrueDepth camera. The latter is used with the Face ID facial recognition system that unlocks the phone and verifies the user's identity for Apple Pay. Yesterday's report indicated that the first one million units of the iPhone X might not be released until December.

The 64GB version of the iPhone X will be priced at $999 while the 256GB variant will cost $1,149. It will be the first iPhone to feature an OLED screen, and offers an edge-to-edge display. It will support wireless charging, and Apple's new Portrait Lighting mode that allows users to shoot portraits using preset lighting options.

If it's gone through it's official FCC certification. Then all the iPhone X hardware is finale. Plus the manufacturing processing is finale as well. So I guess Apple is done with all the hype and propaganda crap in regards to faulty panels, and FaceID crap.

It can only be overpriced to those who either can't afford it, or don't want/like it. You could also say, the Note 8 is overpriced, but to me it isn't. I wanted it, and could easily afford it, so I bought it...outright at that. Anyone who wants an iPhone X, should get it. That's what we work for, to own what we want.

Wait. Huh? Saying something is overpriced doesn't mean you can't afford it. Where did you get that from? Apple fans say that all the time, and time and time again its been proven false. Why would you repeat that? Shame on you.! Lol I bought the Note 8, because it had a BOGO deal. With it I woukd have not gotten it. Because it is overpriced. Just because I can afford it thst doesn't mean the price cant be to high. I'm surprised at you You need a spanking.

Haha. I know what you were saying, I was just messing around a bit. It's not overpriced because I can't afford it, it's overpriced because it's cost is perceive to be to high for its actual value. If a person worked at McDonald's and wants a house that costs 100k, the house isnt overpriced, he just can't afford it because they don't make enough money. The problem with gadgets for me, Apple and Samsung are banking on the fact that there are people who can afford it and even though they may not outnumber those who can't, they will make enough money off those who can. For me, I will never pay $1000 for a phone and if it wasn't for the BOGO deal, I wouldn't have bought it. Next year I won't be. I will keep my Note 8 until the 10. Which I know should be pretty good.

It's overpriced because it's not worth the price (even part-timer college student can get this phone with 2-Year Contract, ~$50/month isn't expensive for most) Just like $20 popcorn, that isn't expensive, but still overpriced

I don't think this is necessarily true. I think someone could want something, easily afford it, but still think it's over priced and decide to save their money or wait for a deal. This is how some people that are rich or wealthy (there is a difference between the two) remain rich or wealthy. Just because you can easily afford something doesn't mean you want to buy it at its current price.

It' overpriced because Apple's overcharging their customers.

Yes, but when will the damn thing actually drop? All these delay rumors man, just drop it for crying out loud. Apple never has this many issues dropping a device.

Too overpriced for a phone with so much issues.

Just wait until its released. First complaint, the Face ID doesn't work. I wish they had kept the FPS because Face ID fails too much. Oh I wish i had a home button.. Samsung was smart to have some type of home button and FPS - wont be said by any Apple fan ever. And the IPhone X will score a 9.5, and its cons will have fast charhing but no includes adapter, the Bitch is an eyesore and the camera is weak. Just watch! It's an S7 with IOS and a llwer IP certification. The S7 was onky $650 and the fast charger was included. Apple has some nerve and its sad, no one ev3n cares. But if Samsung had done any if this, they would be getting crucified.

"Face ID fails too much" how do you know this? You don't have the phone lmao.. "The camera's weak"- iPhone 8 Plus matches Note 8 on DxOmark with inferior f2.8 non OIS telephoto lens, X will score higher than the Note 8/8 plus. The opposite of weak actually

Because it's still face recognition. No form of biometric is as good as your finger. The reason is simple. Your finger has fewer points of failure, thus it increases its accuracy. An FPS will usually only not work for 3 reasons. Moisture, dirt, or you simply didnt touch it properly. Face Recognition has more failure points, like lights, shadows, darker skin, glasses, distance, expressions and more. Ask any pilot, they will tell you they rather fly a plane vs a helicopter, because helicoptors have more points of failure. As good as rhe Surface Pro is even in the dark, it does fail. Its also slower. The FPS is so much faster. The Iris Scanner and Face Recognition on the Galaxy works, but it is not even in my trying it working 90% of the time. Whixh is why I use Smart Lock. I won't have to worry about it. Samsung made the right move keeping what works.

Yes and I follow DXOMARK and I dont have an issue with the score. Here is where it's week. Even in DXO photos, tbeybstate the IPhone still has noisy pictures. Iys also still not as good in low light. And it only good up to 4X zoom. The OIS is terrible. They did say it dis better recordings. But i disagree. If you're standing still you probably will. Start moving and its over. The auto-fucus is slow vs the dual pixel autofocus on the Galaxy. Burst mode is slower. I can literally take 100 shots in the time the IPhone may onky do a 1/3 as many. I like some of the new portrait effects. But even though i rarely use the second lens, it takes better pics too because it has OIS.

You mean the actual iPhone 8 thstbwill be called the IPhone 9? So when the IPhone 8's go to 9 and then it's time for 10, what Re they gonna call it? iPhone 11? Edition. Or just IPhone like it was in th3 beginning. I have no idea why they ever did an S model. It's just ruins the naming convention.

I don't give a shit about them because they don't post thesis-length, typo-filled manifests about how a company ruined society. Also whoever the hell you're talking (Apple-Rulz) about hasn't told me to get struck by lightning or die yet, so they're not on my shit list... unlike your boy XPtheGOAT. I fully plan exposing his stupid/sexist/slightly autistic ass no matter which shitty username he adopts to lurk here. Also with how sad this dude's life must be to need two accounts on a fucking phone forum, he should be thanking me for calling attention to him. After all... that's likely the only reason he came back: attention. Seriously, I wish I had that kinda time on my hands, these desk jobs are super tedious.
