Today is the fifth anniversary of Apple's launch of the iPhone X and FaceID

Today is the fifth anniversary of Apple's launch of the iPhone X at its first media event at the Steve Jobs Theater. Apple's iPhone X introduced a new design, replacing Touch ID and the physical Home button with Face ID and swipe navigation. It is the first iPhone with an OLED display, a notch, thinner bezels on the display, a polished stainless steel frame, and an animated emoji called Animoji. In addition to the iPhone 8, the iPhone X also ushered in wireless charging support and a neural engine for machine learning.

For over a decade, our goal has been to build an iPhone with an all-screen display. The iPhone X delivers on that vision, Jony Ive, Apple's former design chief, said in a September 2017 press release.

Phil Schiller, Apple's former marketing chief said, the iPhone X is the future of smartphones.

Before Phil Schiller took the stage to discuss the device's new features, Apple CEO Tim Cook talked about what the iPhone X means in particular. As the first event at the Steve Jobs Theater, Apple opened its presentation with a moving tribute to Steve Jobs, who passed away in 2011. Apple says the iPhone X represents "the beginning of the next decade of the iPhone." While the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro models has been replaced by a "pill + punch" smart island design, the overall design of the iPhone X and Face ID remains. And the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use a smaller notch.
