iPhone X Design: Why iPhone Designs are so Unoriginal

The ‘notch’ on the new iPhone X has been portrayed by apple as some new invention, but this is far from the truth. Many tech enthusiasts relate the notch to the Xbox Kinetic tech that has been around for quite a while. It enables the user to unlock the phone by just looking at it, many view this as a risky move as humanity loves having their options.

Apple users are also not looking forward to the face ID feature stating security fears and for good reason. The face is the most open part of your body and you may share many similarities with another person. The FBI has been known to jail people with mistaken identity who is to say iPhone X will not grant access due to false identity.

A few months ago, at the hardware department of Apple’s Jony Ive showcased to customers how the original design should look of the iPhone X. The edge should be frameless and with no notch at all.

The hardware developers from Apple have been working day and night to disintegrate the camera sensors behind its super retina and the fingerprint sensor behind the screen. Unfortunately, they haven’t successfully managed to do so, but made the idea of the notch to be conceptualized.

Revolution of Apple products, or rather lack of it

From the introduction of iPod in 2001 and to the release of the spectacular iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, Apple was viewed as the best in the whole world regarding software and hardware design. I must say apple received good reviews from its users as it turned a simple smartphone into a marvelous device inbuilt with quality photography tools. Everyone was in love with Apple products, but things came to change over the years in technology rolled on.

In 2013 Apple made a massive visual change in its design through the introduction of iOS 7 the operating system that gave Apple products the recent layout. The product was frustrating and was not complete at the time of launch. Jony Ive, Apple’s design chief, converted the well understandable and smart buttons to confusing rubrics.
Furthermore, the developer made unattractive icons that have never recovered since its inception. For instance, the camera icon took a distinct shape from other sections of the operating system.

”There should have been consistency in the general design of these icons,” says Joshua Topolsky.

This details should have been analyzed and corrected during its development process. Apple today has improved the devices’ half-life by introducing battery cases for iPhone 6S and six, but the world’s’ perspective is different from the company’s design developer. Apparently, the world sees the case as a terrible invention as it makes your smartphone look lousy.

Take for instance the keyboard bulge. Unlike Microsoft’s cover, that lays on the body of the surface, Apple’s iPad pro cover is projected and cannot be flattened due to its dazed keys.
Apple’s Magic Mouse2

Apple’s new invention of magic mouse 2 relies on charging on a standard iPhone lightning connector. The user should observe first how the electronic device charges before buying the idea of using such a technique. You must insert Apple pencil at the bottom of the iPad pro and flip the device on the back and plug in the cable.

Naturally, the mouse has not used this way as it had been a norm for decades to run the cables from its front. Before 2014, Apple’s smartphones were neat, great and full of straight lines. But iPhone 6 protruding camera made Apple work on a thinner and appealing ideal size.

Apparently, nobody has use these grievances as an excuse for not buying Apple products and accessories. These design mistakes have not changed Apple’s position in the world of technology. It is still considered the largest developer of distinct, unique and marvelous consumer electronics, software and hardware products such as the iPhone and iPad tablet.
