The holiday season has begun on a high as the Apple iPhone X last Friday launched in Kenya. The world’s biggest smartphone maker newest device was unveiled by Salute iWorld a top retailer and authorized dealer of Apple products at their Westgate Mall branch, Nairobi. The iPhone X is Apple’s most recent product right after the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus. It comes with the most advanced technology with flawless hardware design and a range of new service offerings. For over a decade, iPhone has embodied modern mobile computing. iPhone 8, launched earlier, is the culmination of that Home-button-and-bezel vision, of everything that's come before. iPhone X (pronounced "Ten"), is something else entirely — the beginning of what comes next. The two phones have many things in common, including the A11 Bionic processor inside, inductive charging on the back, along with Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting on the rear camera system. Both are water resistant, have the same high-speed wireless radios, and 64 GB and 256 GB storage options. What iPhone X doesn't have — aside from a gold color option — is a Home button, Touch ID, and bezels. Apple has deleted all of them. And, in their place, created new, gesture-based navigation, Face ID, and the TrueDepth camera system. The result is a display that goes edge-to-rounded-edge, wrapped in a design that harkens back to the original iPhone while still looking like something straight out of sci-fi.

Apple is working on the world's most advanced mobile operating system iOS 11,it is the successor to iOS 10, expected to debut alongside new iPhones in the fall.They recently unveiled it during its Worldwide Developers Conference & this will put iPhone users on another level. iOS 11 helps iPad become a true laptop replacement for some, with better multitasking, and it gives Control Center a much-needed reorganization. You can now rearrange and customize exactly which shortcuts appear in your Control Center, the swipe-up control that you can access via the bottom of the screen. iOS 11 is making it easier to get rid of apps you don't use anymore. A new "offload unused apps" setting will automatically get rid of apps you don't use while preserving documents and data you may need should you want to use the app again. Native support for QR codes is good news for everyone. Now, you won't have to download a dedicated scanner app just for the QR code, which continue to make an unlikely comeback in so many apps. Snapchat users have a reason to smile because they’ll be able to screen record right from the new Control Center .Screen Recorder, appears if you customize the shortcuts in the revamped Control Center via Settings. System-wide drag and drop is available on the iPad, making it easy to drag images, text, links, and more from one app to another, or between documents. On the iPhone, drag and drop is available within some apps, like Files. Apple Pay is being updated with a new peer-to-peer payment option that allows money to be sent using the Messages app or Siri, taking advantage of the credit and debit cards in Wallet. When receiving money, it goes into an Apple Pay Cash account, which can be used to make purchases using Apple Pay or sent to a bank account. Apple is also introducing an ARKit SDK that's designed to help developers build high-quality AR experiences and games to the iPhone and iPad. ARKit takes advantage of the processors and motion sensors in iOS devices to build virtual content that can be placed atop real-world scenes for purposes like interactive gaming, immersive shopping, industrial design, and more. Do Not Disturb mode is being expanded with new features for the car.

Introducing the stunning Infinity Display The revolutionary design of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ begins from the inside out. We rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen. So all you see is pure content and virtually no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size. And it's easy to hold in one hand. Boundaries removed The Infinity Display has an incredible end-to-end screen that spills over the phone’s sides, forming a completely smooth, continuous surface with no bumps or angles. It’s pure, pristine, uninterrupted glass. And it takes up the entire front of the phone, flowing seamlessly into the aluminum shell. The result is a beautifully curved, perfectly symmetrical, singular object. A camera built for every moment Capture life as it happens with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ cameras. The 12MP rear camera and the 8MP front camera are so accurate and fast that you won't miss a moment, day or night. Security that's foolproof Prying eyes are not a problem when you have iris scanning on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Your irises have patterns that are unique to you, and they're nearly impossible to replicate. That means with iris scanning, your phone and its contents open to your eyes only. And when you need to unlock really fast, face recognition is a handy option. *The iris is the colored, ring-shaped part of your eye. With the Galaxy S8, Samsung is aiming to set a new benchmark, defining what a modern smartphone should look and feel like. Without a doubt, the most striking feature of the device is its curved Infinity Display that visually stretches from edge to edge. The screen is also taller, allowing the phone to be manageable in one hand, all while providing plentiful display space. Like it or not, the physical buttons have been replaced with on-screen ones, while the fingerprint scanner has been re-positioned on the back. The camera is similar to the one on the Galaxy S7, but the improved software allows the phone to deliver better photos by stitching areas of multiple frames together. On the hardware front, the Snapdragon 835 provides plenty of processing power, all while being more energy efficient than its predecessors
