The costly iPhone X tries to reinvent the phone -- again

From CNET: Ten years ago, Steve Jobs stood on a stage in San Francisco and promised, "Apple is going to reinvent the phone."

That turns out to have been the understatement of the decade.

Though Apple certainly wasn't the first to make a mobile phone, or even the first to use touchscreen technology, the iPhone's blend of slickly designed hardware and software changed the way we all thought about and used our phones. Since then, Apple has sold more than 1.2 billion handsets. The iPhone 7, released last year, is the top-selling phone in the world. And analysts predict the iPhone will become the world's first trillion-dollar smartphone by the end of 2018.

Now Apple is hoping to reinvent the phone all over again.

Priced starting at $999, Apple's new flagship iPhone crams the company's sharpest-ever, 5.8-inch screen inside a body that's smaller than last year's iPhone 7 Plus. The new gadget supports wireless charging for the first time and features a new Apple-designed chip called the A11 Bionic.
