Apple’s iPhone events always gather immense fanfare, and this year wasn’t any different. However, the event gathered even more attention as Apple unveiled its 10th anniversary edition iPhone, the iPhone X. Apple also launched the next generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models. But the iPhone X with its edge-to-edge display, the absence of Touch ID button, and a new Face ID recognition undoubtedly stole the show.

The meme generation took this moment to share their reactions on social media about the newly launched iPhone X. Keeping critiques aside, the internet had a lot to say about the Face ID which replaces the Touch ID for biometric authentication on the iPhone X.

The iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone so far with prices starting at $999 (approximately Rs 64,000). However, in India, the smartphone will be priced at Rs 89,000. For a country like India, the joke is always on the expensively priced iPhones. And just like every year, the “selling kidney” jokes made its way back again.
In addition to the Face ID, you can either tap on the screen to wake it up, or swipe up to open the Home screen. Recapping its specifications, the iPhone 8 features a 5.8-inch Super Retina Display with an OLED panel on top. The display offers a resolution of 2436 1125 pixels, and pixel density of 458ppi, making it the highest ever on an iPhone. The iPhone X is powered by the all new A11 Bionic processor, which features six-cores, and is 70 percent faster than the A10 SoC.
