iPhone X Best Features: Apple takes us on a guided tour

The iPhone X has finally arrived, heralding the return of gigantic queues at Apple Stores around the world.

Now, for those folks fortunate (and wealthy) enough to be handling the anniversary edition smartphone, Apple has released a video walking through the handset’s best features.

Posted to the company’s YouTube channel, the four minute clip shows off Face ID, Animoji, Apple Pay and a host of new gestures that’ll make up for the sacrificed Home button.

The Guided Tour videos haven’t been deployed by Apple for a few years now.

However, given the iPhone X represents one of the most fundamental changes to the handset since its inception, it’s no surprise to see Apple bring the clips back.

Previously it has released clips helping to explain features on the iPad and the Apple Watch.

The demand for the new handset appears to be as strong as ever, with many die-hard fans lining up overnight at Apple Store locations.

Less than 24 hours after the official release, many stores have already sold out.

Those ordering from Apple’s website face a 3-4 week wait, while Apple catches up on the backlog.

As well as the Face ID feature, iPhone X buyers get an edge-to-edge display and a brand new glass backed design.
