Why is iPhone X inexpensive?

Why is iPhone X inexpensive?

While many people believe iPhone X is expensive and overpriced and they call it’s buyers Sheeples, I think in contrast to other Devices, the iPhone X is more affordable.

How a 1000$  cellphone can be cheap?In name of computer-mediated reality, iPhone X can be an affordable choice. iPhone X has various interesting features that make it a killer warrior in computer-mediated reality market, and of course, the new war is not on the devices with better voice assistant systems, The battle is about  Virtual Reality And Augmented Reality.

Microsoft is going to release Windows Mixed Reality headsets this Holiday. Google has released  DayDream VR platforms which work with Android Devices.

Sony, HTC, and Facebook are other major players in Virtual Reality market.

let’s check their solutions costs:

Sony PlayStation VR: 400$ Headset + 300$ PlayStation 4 Device and the solution is not portable and you should be connected to TV. Total Cost: 700$
HTC Vive: 1000+$ PC  +  599$ Headset( Which was 799$ earlier .Total Cost is at least  1600$  and the solution is not usable out of the house in the best case you can purchase extra accessories to make it cordless at Home.
Facebook: 1000$+PC   +  399$ Headset. Total Cost is at least 1400 $ and you cant’ use it in outdoor.
Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality: 1000$ PC + 299$ headset. Total cost is at least 1299$ and you are the prisoner of cords and cables in this solution too.
Microsoft HoloLens Commercial Suite which is dedicated to  Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality is 5000$.
Google DayDream: 649$ Pixel Phone + 79$ Headset and total costs are around 800$ which is the cheapest VR  solution so far.
But what you got when you buy an iPhone x:

Apple A11 ‘Bionic’ chipset has used in iPhone X and iPhone8. This chipset includes  Six-Core CPU, Six Core GPU, M11 motion coprocessor which makes new iPhones performance higher than new Macbook pro(1).It means that you got a high-performance device which empowers you Augmented Reality Solution.
Furthermore, iPhone X  front sensors can detect  30,000 dots in your face (It seems to be more accurate than Kinect Two which is not portable ).
iPhone Cameras are calibrated for Augmented Reality and they can work in low light, moreover, they are 60fps which can create immersive AR experience.
Although Apple officially has not introduced any VR/AR headset yet Third party companies get interested in creating AR headsets for ARKit.Mira Prism is one of these companies which is going to sell 99$ AR headset for iPhone 7.

You may think with yourself While Apple hasn’t released VRKit( Or any information about VR Capabilities)  why I talk about Virtual Reality in this discussion?Because I the hardware of iPhone X is not only AR Ready but They Are VR-Ready too and the ARKit is not only augmented reality development kit, ARKit with iPhone’s World Tracking hardware can create immersive VR experiences.For Example, if you watch the videos of ARKit portals you can experience the immersive Virtual Reality which may be more immersive than Playstation VR.


In conclusion, Apple and Google providing less expensive solutions and if we consider the flood of AR apps for iPhone, the Apple Solution seems to be more affordable. I hope Apple introduces it’s own AR Glasses in beginning of 2018 also I wish it has built-in batteries to increase the duration of AR experiences.

iOS 11 is beta yet but Developers are working  on Creative apps.

 

Bluetooth trackers  make a sound when you misplace your wallet, keys or other items. Some of these companies are getting into the AR game with apps which use AR to show you visually where your items are located.

Pixie is one of these, launching an ARKit-based app later this month which uses distance and direction indicators to guide you to your item.

Here is a video of Pixie in action

AR Kindle

Although ARKit  has a huge lead over competitors , more companies are entering AR market.According to Goodreader The Kindle Framework Team is currently hiring people to implement AR and Virtual Reality into upcoming products.The job description says that The developer will be responsible for creating new feature improvements with an understanding of graphics subsystems. Amazon is looking for someone with experiencing using “multi platform programming languages for 2D and 3D graphics rendering such as Core Graphics, Skia, OpenGL, Direct3D, Metal” and “animation and physics engines like Unity, Turbulenz.” Many people in the industry have stated that 3D is basically the same thing as Augmented Reality.

Amazon is getting bullish about AR and virtual reality in general. The company filed a patent in June about adding new functionality to a myriad of smart devices.  The technique calls for using a three-dimensional sensor, such as Microsoft’s Kinect device, to generate a cloud of data points for the real-life object – your hand, for example. The app would keep track of your hand’s position and orientation with respect to the phone, and calculate how the virtual item would reflect light in different ways as you move your hand around. “The items may include jewelry, eyeglasses, watches, home furnishings, and so forth,” the inventors say in the application. “Users who wish to purchase these physical items may find that the experience of purchasing is enhanced by more realistic presentations of the physical items on devices.”
