At the Apple Event which was held today, Apple announced the latest addition to its products, the iPhone X which is actually pronounced “iPhone 10”. Order start by October 27 and shipment starts from November 3.

The new phone was introduced in addition to its new products, the iPhone 8 & 8s.

The iPhone X  features a new 5.8-inch OLED display that’s more colorful than the LCD screens Apple used in earlier iPhones. Apple is branding it the “Super Retina Display.” The screen runs almost top to bottom and side to side, too, something Apple has never done before.

Apple said OLED displays come with trade-offs compared with its Retina Displays, but that its Super Retina Display supports high dynamic range, offers the best color accuracy on the market and 3-D Touch support.

There’s no longer a home button. You swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return home. That gesture also allows a user to multitask — swipe up and pause, and you can multitask and switch between apps. Users can switch between apps by swiping along the bottom of the screen, too. Users can call up Siri by saying “Hey Siri” or by pressing the side button.

Since there’s no home button, Touch ID no longer exists on the front of the phone. Apple will allow users to unlock the iPhone X with a new feature called Face ID. Apple uses an infrared camera, a front camera and other sensors to first record and then detect a user’s unique face.

When you look at your iPhone, it will detect your face and will automatically unlock, even in the dark. Apple says it uses neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and then compares that in real time, invisibly, to make sure it’s actually you. The A11 Bionic chip has a built-in neural engine to process your face.

You can’t spoof Face ID with photographs or even professionally made masks, which it said it had folks in Hollywood design to help enhance security. The phone won’t unlock if your eyes are closed or if you’re looking away.

Apple said Touch ID is the gold standard for consumer protection and that there’s a 1 in 50,000 chance that someone can randomly unlock your iPhone with their fingerprint. With Face ID, it’s now 1 in a million. It also works with Apple Pay, you just look at it to authenticate, and third-party apps such as Mint, 1Password and E-Trade.

Face ID can be used to create special 3-D emojis that share similar facial reactions to you. The feature is called Animoji, and you can control them with your face thanks to its ability to map more than 50 facial muscles. Animoji can be sent inside the Messages app.

Like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X supports wireless charging and is water-resistant.

The iPhone X has dual 12-megapixel sensors just like in the iPhone 8 Plus and a newer telephoto lens that lets in more light. The front and rear cameras support portrait mode, which allows users to take professional-looking photos by blurring the background. It also has dual optical image stabilization for both lenses, which helps prevent blur while moving and in low-light. A new Quad LED True Tone flash also improves pictures shot in the dark.

The iPhone X will be available in space gray and silver. Models with 64 GB and 256 GB will be available, starting at $999. Orders start Oct. 27 and shipments begin Nov. 3.

The Royal collection, which forms part of the numerous collections by the designer, is no match to his previous works as the release marks his tenth year in the fashion space and inspired by his community – the Zongo.

In an interview, the Joyce Ababio College Of Creativity and Design (Vogue Style) and Kofi Ansah trained asserted, “My new collection is inspired by my environment, the people, the love and the culture. I grew up and still live in the Zongo, and I want my people to have and feel a sense of originality, belonging, and confidence when they are adorned in this design.”

“This is who we are. Our confidence is tired to self-believe, and wearing an outfit made by one of us is a way to communicate believe in our own, and by extension of ourselves. I pray everyone can come to terms with how I’m feeling now as a Zongo boy and a Muslim.” He ended.

The Royal collection, which comes in different colors, is a long outfit (jalbaab) mostly worn by Muslims but with a touch of authenticity in design. Touched by the master himself with the best finishing, it has luxurious embroidery designs and signs of African descent.

The Fabric doesn’t only look good on you but feels good on the body as there is a sense of freedom: It gently falls on your skin and makes room for easy movement and comfy.

The 33-year-old family man who branched into fashion after his fall off the educational ladder in 2006 when he was first admitted to the University Of Ghana is back at Legon after 14 years to pursue his tertiary education and concurrently running his fashion house with nine employees.
