During his keynote, Tim Cook declared that the iPhone X “will set the path for technology for the next decade”. He’s embellishing.
While both the iPhone 8 and iPhone X have features that will be critical to the technology of the next decade – wireless charging, augmented reality applications and facial recognition/tracking – they aren’t the first.
He should have reserved that line for use if Apple ever releases augmented reality glasses – which I hope they would call “iGlasses”.
All things considered, I would give the Apple Special Event on 9/12/17 a grade of “B”; good, but not what I would have expected of the world’s most valuable company.
