The wait is over. Nearly two months after it was first launched and a week after it was made available to pre–order, the iPhone X is finally available to buy.

Apple’s tenth anniversary smartphone dispenses with the traditional home button for a new, all–screen design, as well as switching from the fingerprint scanning smarts of Touch ID to the facial recognition tech of Face ID.

The latter is the biggest draw when it comes to the iPhone X, allowing users to unlock their phone and pay in stores and online by simply looking at it.

The feature is set to become a cornerstone of major apps, with developers able to use facial mapping to help bolster security and create new games and services.

With a dual lens camera and support for Apple’s ARKit augmented reality features, the iPhone X is a step up from the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which launched at the same event back in September.

Those who didn’t pre–order can buy the iPhone X direct from Apple, starting today. However, those who did not queue outside the California company’s stores may struggle to find one.

Supply is constrained, with those who pre–ordered online facing a wait of up to six weeks.

The iPhone X costs £999 for a 64GB model, rising to £1,149 for a 256GB edition.
