During World Wide Developers’ Conference event, Apple announced ARKit, a platform for AR apps to live on for iPhone users. With the release of iPhone X two days ago, Apple is hoping to bank on augmented reality.
The Cupertino company boasted at the event that it has the biggest AR system in the world. Does this mean Apple will bring the most powerful computing power in the form of AR in every pocket?
If they could do that, it still wouldn't be worth a thousand Great British pounds for a phone, in my humble opinion!
Maybe their own reality is what needs augmentation.
You're absolutely right about not spending $1,000 on the iPhone X. This might look a little like copy-pasta (I'll give credit below to the website I'm copying from) but a lot of people are going to sell their iPhone 7 to buy the latest Apple phone. A grand could be used to travel to exotic nations, or may be upgrade a gaming computer, or even educate a child in a third world country.
Besides, I'm not sure if the iPhone X has more than one or two drool worthy features. I mean, soon everyone is going to join the Face ID and wireless charging bandwagon. Why should I spend $1,000 on an iPhone when in fact, I could buy an iPhone 6S or 7, and use the rest of the money next year, if Apple introduces a truly revolutionizing smartphone. Until then, I think I am making the right choice by sticking to my iPhone SE. (Mandatory link: https/www.technowize.com/worth-paying-1000-iphone-x/)
