Apple offered up a first look at iOS 11.3 today, revealing plans to improve Messages, add new augmented reality features, let you check your health records from the Health app, and control your iPhone's battery life. But if you have an iPhone X, the biggest news of the day is the four fresh Animoji coming this autumn.

Apple's ARKit for iOS 11 makes it relatively easy for developers to take advantage of the company's augmented reality features, and gives consumers the opportunity to interact with a virtual world layered over your actual environment. Augmented reality games are certainly the flashiest way to demonstrate its many uses, but some of the best augmented reality apps aren't games at all. These AR tools for iOS empower you with the tools you need to establish some sense of order in your home, plan for the future (in terms of what couch you're going to buy this spring) and get started on some home improvement projects without lifting a hammer.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
A great phone case is the ideal antidote to life's inevitable phone-destroying surprises. The iPhone X comes in at a cool $1500-plus, depending on the model and although there are plenty of other things you could spend that kind of money on, if you're going to splash out and grab the X then you want to make sure you're protecting it, but you also want to save a bit of cash.
But which iPhone X case is right for you? Here’s some of our recommendations.
When Apple announced the iPhone X on 12 September 2017 you'd have thought they had made peace in the Middle East, cured all disease and made a decent DC superhero movie. But the reality is they simply released a new, very expensive smartphone. They skipped version nine, delivering the iPhone 8 and iPhone X that day. I've been using an iPhone X for a little while now and have found that it's a story of compromises as Apple lays the foundation for their next generation of smartphones.
Anyone using an iPhone might think it's difficult to switch to an Android device. But Google's latest smartphone, the Pixel 2, alleviates the anxiety of switching by taking care of all the annoying parts, such as copying your photos or contacts. You'll need to change some settings before you can transfer from one operating system to the next, but the entire process is a lot less stressful than importing and exporting data you might have trouble properly identifying or moving (everyone hates VCF files).
iOS: iPhone 8 and iPhone X owners using wireless charging pads to power their devices are about to receive a pleasant surprise thanks to a software update: Apple's upcoming iOS 11.2 will add support for faster wireless charging for the Qi-compatible smartphones. Updating your phone isn't enough to boost your charging speed, however. You'll need the proper wireless charging pad to take advantage of the faster charging feature.
When Apple first announced Face ID for the iPhone X, it claimed the new feature was significantly more secure than Touch ID and couldn't be fooled by even the most realistic of masks. But it turns out that might not be the case.
What a month it's been for phone fans. Apple's iPhone X hit stores at pretty much the same time as Google's new Pixel 2 handsets, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 came earlier a few weeks earlier, and let's not overlook the new LG V30+ or the Mate 10, probably Huawei's best phone to date.
While this makes for a formidable list of great smartphones, all eyes are on the iPhone X and the Pixel 2. Both phones are a window into how two of the world's biggest tech companies see smartphones today, and are two of the best phones of the year.
The recently released iPhone X poses a pretty radical shift in terms of how iOS users interact with their smartphone from the moment they pick it up. It's got a sizable screen, face-scanning technology, and a pair of cameras designed to make your subjects pop without toting a fancy camera.
