Apple Needs 5 Years Working on iPhone X
Development of the iPhone X which will make its debut on the market will soon need a little time. Apple takes years for it until finally iPhone X is ready to be launched this year.
In an interview at New York City’s Tech Fest event last weekend, Chief Design Officer Jony Ive said the new iPhone development took half a decade or five years.
“The technology (iPhone X) was done for five years, and we have prototypes of this size,” said Jony Ive.
In other words when Apple launched the iPhone 5 which has a 4 inch screen in 2012, Apple has started working on the prototype iPhone X carrying a large screen measuring 5.8 inches.
Not without obstacles, iPhone X development is not as easy as imagined. Jony Ive said Apple encountered a lot of failures in working on a new generation iPhone that is not equipped with the Touch ID sensor.
“As much as 99 percent of the time spent (from 5 years), iPhone X development mostly failed,” said Jony Ive.
Despite facing many challenges, Jony Ive said the most memorable in the development of the iPhone X is not the finished product but the process to create an amazing product. also read: 4 Options of iPhone 8 Plus Case to Protect the Phone while Making It Look Attractive
“What I remember most is not about the product, but the manufacturing process,” says Jony Ive.
Regarding failure after failure Apple faced, Jony Ive said the failure was unattractive. He also admitted that Apple made many mistakes but he believed the mistake did not come from a slacker who believes things will not work.
Apple mentioned is a group of people who are worried. They are worried about people who generally think things are not going to work unless Apple is able to prove otherwise.
Previously, TrueDepth camera development that is able to recognize the user’s face also takes a long time. Apple has been preparing the technology for three years.
iPhone X itself will soon enter a number of world market on 3 November. With a long development time, no wonder the premium iPhone is priced starting 999 US dollars will be successful in the market. also read: iPhone X Battery Review
