  苹果公司发布了一款全面屏、没有 Home 键的高端智能手机。这部被称为“十”的苹果手机采用面部识别系统而非基于指纹信息来识别其所有者。苹果表示,FaceID 技术可以在黑暗中使用三万个红外线点来识别身份,比以前的 TouchID 系统更加安全。请听报道。

  The iPhone is perhaps the most profitable single product in history and it's turned Apple into the world's most valuable company.

  Two iPhone 8 models will not look very different to all but dedicated Apple fans but the iPhone X was billed by the company's chief executive Tim Cook as the biggest leap forward since the original was launched a decade ago.

  The stand-out feature is facial recognition technology, which unlocks the phone with a glance, but what will also stand out for phone buyers is a starting price of £999.

  So far, Apple has managed to keep prices and profit margins higher than rivals and still sell more than 1.2 billion iPhones. Now the loyalty of its fans will be tested by its most expensive phone yet.
