The iPhone X is almost here, with shipments to begin tomorrow, and now Apple can provide us with more details about how the company’s biggest iPhone overhaul to date came to life.
Speaking for Mashable, Dan Riccio, the SVP of hardware engineering at Apple, says the iPhone X was actually projected to launch in 2018, but thanks to how fast development of the device advanced, the company decided to release it this year.
“With a lot of hard work, talent, grit, and determination we were able to deliver them this year,” he explained, pointing out that Apple didn’t waste any time when working on the iPhone X.
Furthermore, he explains that Apple experienced absolutely no issues with Face ID facial recognition, basically denying rumors that the company spent a considerable amount of time designing prototypes of the iPhone X featuring fingerprint sensors placed in different locations.
