These are the instructions Apple should have included with the iPhone X

  • iPhone X Durability Tested

"Not only did the iPhone X's glass shatter when dropped on its front and back from a height of six feet", said SquareTrade, "but the display also malfunctioned". That's why many will require some additional time to figure out just how everything works on the new one.

Basically, if you drop the iPhone X once, be it on its side, back or face down, you're looking at massive damage, according to SquareTrade, and absurdly costly repairs. Combined with the rapid sell out of pre-sale inventory and a return to long lines outside Apple Stores for the iPhone X launch on Friday, AAPL stock hit new record highs on Friday morning.

The new iPhone X has been branded as the "most breakable, highest-priced, most expensive to fix iPhone ever" by a smartphone insurance company after performing a series of drop tests on Apple's $999 handset. Apple is now offering 30-minute online training sessions to iPhone X customers to help them get the most out of their new smartphone.

Bitcoin blasts past $7000 to reach another record high in 2017
This is not entirely surprising, especially not with a few big dips along the way after setting this new all-time high. The concern of true believers is that absorbing bitcoin into the global financial system would destroy its value.

Meanwhile, SquareTrade, a company that provides extended warranties for electronic devices, has crowned the new Apple handset the "most breakable yet", after putting it through a series of tests created to measure its durability. The results were surprised that the unlocking of the phone was not regular after the test. A second drop test is done on the front side of the phone extracted much more heavy damage to the handset. A cracked iPhone X screen will set you back $279. This is aimed at potential iPhone buyers and in it, Apple lays out the known issues with OLED technology, along with best practices to avoid problems.

The extended warranty service provider deems the iPhone X an overall "high risk" in breakability, awarding it 90 points on a scale where 100 is the worst possible score. If you're concerned about damaging your $1000 iPhone X and having to be out of pocket for repairs, you may want to check out SquareTrade's smartphone insurance price plans. Compare that with the iPhone 8's rating of 67 earlier this year, and it seems that Apple's mandate to innovate each device comes at the cost of structural integrity.
