Apple Design Chief: iPhone X Makes iPhone 7 Feel Disconnected
Apple’s iPhone X has pretty much cannibalized the iPhone 8 following the major upgrades that the company introduced on the anniversary model, and judging from a design perspective, even Apple executives acknowledge the huge difference between older and newer devices.
Apple design chief Jony Ive, for instance, reckoned in a recent interview with Smithsonian Magazine that the iPhone 7 Plus “seems to me a rather disconnected component housed in an enclosure,” also adding that the iPhone X edge-to-edge approach is something that Apple has “aspired to for years.”
iPhone X does introduce several innovations, at least for the Apple ecosystem, in terms of look. The biggest of them is the debut of an OLED display with very small bezels and a controversial notch at the top and housing the facial recognition modules, the FaceTime camera, and other tech.
