Importantly, though, this won't really be a "backwards-looking" phone like this year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus; instead, the LCD phone will adopt the iPhone X's basic form factor, sensor "notch" and all. To hit a more affordable price point, Apple is also said to launch a 6.1-inch model with a more traditional LCD display.
The new iPhone X is displayed during an Apple special event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple Park campus on September 12, 2017 in Cupertino, California.
In a tweet, Apple said people could "fix it by installing the latest software update". The problem wasn't visible when they first got the iPhone X, and only appeared suddenly.
Lastly, this is what Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup may look like.
According to users on Reddit, the company is replacing the damaged units with the newer phone, so, if you have an iPhone X with the similar problem head towards the authorized service center to replace the faulty device. Exactly how a software update will tackle this issue remains to be seen as a problem with the screen freezing suggests it may be a hardware fault instead. Of course that leaves the standard 4.7-inch iPhone 8 behind and Apple's production line may also soon reflect that.
Considering the fact that the iPhone X has a glass cover on both the back and the front, it's a slippery device and has a high chance of slipping out of the hand.
KGI has previously predicted that all iPhones will drop Touch ID next year in favor of Face ID as the new design moves away from fingerprint recognition in favor of facial recognition for biometric security.
The three new models will drive a "real super-cycle in terms of iPhone replacement demand", the analyst writes, predicting 100-120 million iPhones assembled in the second half of 2018.
Apple claimed that the chances of the Face ID failing are one in a million, but recent reports and tests show otherwise.
