Apple’s biggest event in this year has just passed, in the show, there are 3 new Apple phones being unveiled alongside with an updated Apple Watch, an even better looking Apple TV, and software updates for most of Apple’s products. However, the only Star of the presentation is Iphone X, which is pronounced ‘iPhone 10′ as well. It is Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone and it’s making big changes for 2017. What are its new features? How much and when we can buy it? Plus, can we play free Nintendo 3ds games on the new Iphone 8, Iphone 8 Plus and Iphone X? This post will tell you all.
What’s the Iphone X and Why is it called “X”?
“The biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.”, that is how Apple describes their newest flagship phone. And because 2017 is 10 years after the very first iPhone launched at Macworld Expo in 2007, the Iphone X must be a sort of special, celebratory anniversary iPhone. Why is it called “X”? The X represents the Roman Numeral for 10 in the same way that Mac OS X used to. So Iphone X just means the Iphone Ten.
All features of Iphone X
This Iphone X will be different from any current Iphones include the upcoming Iphone 8 and Iphone 8 Plus. It with an all-new design.
The iPhone X looks stunning, with an OLED display that stretches across the entire front of the phone for an edge-to-edge finish. Apple has called the display Super Retina, and it is 5.8in diagonally.
Missing Home button
In order to make an edge-to-edge display, Apple has done away with the button on the iPhone X. iOS 11 has been redesigned to replace to Home button’s functions. You’ll now raise to wake the iPhone X, or tap the display. And to go back to the Home screen, you just swipe up from the bottom. Swiping up and pausing before letting go will open the multitasking screen, and pressing and holding the side button will launch Siri (as will saying Hey, Siri as usual).
Animoji has Apple taking emoji to the next level, utilizing its TrueDepth camera to mirror your facial expressions on an animal or… other creation, like the poo emoji. It enables the combination of anime and emoji, mirrors your facial expressions and records your voice to movement and send messages.
Augmented Reality features
- Bigger display, but smaller than Plus phones
- A more delicate casing: Instead of aluminum, the iPhone X’s back and front is made out of glass.
- Rose gold is out: The iPhone X will come in space gray and silver.

Will Iphone X or Iphone 8/8 Plus support 3DS Games?
Not yet, all the Iphones include the old ones and the newly coming Iphone 8, Iphone 8 Plus and Iphone X are still not playing Nintendo 3ds or Nintendo ds games directly. Currently, on the IOS system, we still need to find a 3ds or ds emulator to play free games on our smart mobile phones. Here I will list you some working ds/3ds emulators for your Apple phones.

They are one of the most well known and best Nintendo DS emulator apps available for iOS. It makes it very easy for anyone to play their favourite Nintendo DS games on their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad for absolutely nothing!
