Pre-order your iPhone X case before the October launch

iPhone X Cases

The iPhone X is slightly larger than the iPhone 7. Its height is listed at 5.65 inches (143.6 mm), compared to the iPhone 7 which is listed at 5.45 inches (138.4 mm). The iPhone X is smaller than the Plus models which are around 6.24 inches (158.4 mm). This means your current iPhone case will not fit the iPhone X no matter what device you own. Even though the iPhone X is around the same size as the iPhone 7, it has a larger 5.8-inch Super Retina HD display thanks to its bezel-less design. This is something you will need to keep in mind when shopping for a new screen protector, or you can just pre-order the new Zagg invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone X and save yourself some time.

4 wireless chargers for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X

AirPower

You will need to purchase a wireless charging pad or dock if you plan to take advantage of the new wireless charging feature found on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. Apple plans to release its own charging mat called the AirPower, but it won't be available until next year. Until then Apple has suggested iPhone owners use third-party chargers from Belkin or Mophie, but any Qi-compliant device will work. You can see a list of Qi-supported devices on the wireless power consortium website.

The latest generation of iPhones are blazingly fast. The iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X all feature the A11 Bionic Fusion chip, which incorporates six processor cores, a Neural Engine, three-core GPU and M11 motion coprocessor. When it comes to speed, the A11 Bionic is 70 percent faster than the previous generation A10 chip, found on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, the A11 Bionic blows away the competition, too.
