The iPhone X will be the first Apple smartphone to feature facial recognition technology – enabling users to unlock the device with their face.
It replaces the fingerprint-scanning Touch ID, built into the home button, which has vanished from the iPhone X to make way for the larger screen.
The facial-scanning software can also be used to animate emojis and send them as messages, a feature Apple is calling Animoji.
The iPhone X was the showpiece announcement at Apple’s first event to take place on its new Apple Park campus – inside the new Steve Jobs Theatre.
Chief executive Tim Cook paid tribute to the late co-founder at the beginning of his keynote, calling the venue a tribute to “Jobs and his vision”.
A third-generation Apple Watch, which contains its own mobile signal and can be used to make phone calls independent of a smartphone, was also announced alongside the Apple TV 4K.
