Apple introduced a slew of new products at its launch event Tuesday, but the moment that truly wowed the world was the unveiling of the highly anticipated iPhone X. The phone rings in at $US999, but despite the high price point, many consumers are ready and willing to buy the device, a survey by 9to5 Mac indicates.
As this chart from Statista highlights, survey respondents are more excited about the iPhone X than any of Apple’s other new products. The survey is an open online survey so the results aren’t necessarily representative of the public at large, but it still indicates the degree to which the iPhone X dominated Apple’s show.
The iPhone X also seems to have hugely overshadowed the other new phones Apple introduced at the event, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. And it’s not hard to see why. While those devices seem little changed from last year’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the iPhone X has a slew of new features, including facial recognition, a large OLED screen and a depth-sensing front camera system.
