Steve Kovach: The iPhone X is finally here and we’re going to show you what’s inside. But even if you spent $1,000 on this thing, you’re still going to need some extra accessories. Alright, so this is the space gray model, 256GB. There’s also a 64GB option.
Got the documentation, two free Apple stickers, and since there’s no Home button, there’s a little tutorial it looks like about how to use the home-button-free iPhone X — some of the new swiping gestures, Face ID, more documentation.
But, here it is. The iPhone X.
Wall charger, wired EarPods, and of course, the dongle. Just like the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 8, there’s no headphone jack so if you want to use your traditional headphones, you need the dongle. Otherwise you can use the lightning headphones. And then the lightning cable for syncing to your computer or charging.
The iPhone X is made of all metal and glass, so if you drop this thing, it is gonna break. So the best thing to do is buy a case. Apple makes some really nice cases. This is a silicone case, but there’s also a leather case from Apple and of course tons of third parties will have cases.
But if you want to take advantage of other iPhone X features like wireless charging, you’re going to have to buy a wireless charging accessory. And those range from $15 to $60 depending on the model you choose. This one we have here from RAVPower goes for about $50.
On top of that, if you want to take advantage of wired fast charging, you’ll need a USB-C to lightning cable. Apple sells that for $25 but you can find cheaper versions on Amazon and elsewhere. You need a special power brick that’s 29 Watts that you can plug USB-C into. That goes for $49 from Apple.
If you want to use wireless charging while you have a case on your iPhone X, you should either use a case made by Apple or a thin one made out of plastic or rubber. Thick cases like those big Otter Boxes or metal cases or any of those other weird ones you might find online might not work with wireless charging. But most cases should be fine.
