The X in iPhone X denotes the completion of 10 years of Apple being in the market of smartphones after the first original iPhone. As you all know, the name itself con be a not-so-subtle homage where Apple used X which is the Roman numeral of 10,for many years to have named the Mac book’s OS X operating system. But hold on! There is yet one another 10th anniversary reference in the all new iPhone Xwhich comes with a much more updated version of its original iconic wallpaper.

IPhone’s 10th anniversary: -

The first of the iPhones was launched with a picture wherein a cloud was wreathed and a blue and green Earth was showcased, as seen from the space, on the lock screen of the phone itself. The same image is been showcased inside the iOS 11 Gold Master which was recently been leaked which was a part of the package of all new wallpapers.

Wallpaper, another highlight: -

Of all the new wallpapers, three are kept exclusively to the iPhone X, with the intent to hide over the camera notch at the top-side of the screen black backgrounds are introduced. One of these three exclusive Apple iPhone X wallpapers showcases the same Earth from the space image like the one in the original iPhone, and it is updated in supporting the hi-resolution screens of the current modern-day scenario of the iPhone.

Apple’s overloaded nostalgia over its iPhone X: -

Apple usually seems to overload nostalgia, liking to look forward instead of to harp on its past accomplishments. However in the recent years, this state of mind appears to have mellowed down. The now-retro rainbow-striped Apple logo also happens to make a rebound in this new arrangement of comebacks, and has been found in promoting the material in the course of recent years.

20thAnniversary Macintosh: -

Apple’s has majorly dabbled up with nostalgia in the past, and it did not happen to turn out too well then. The 20thAnniversary Macintosh was a shocking piece of the early Jony Ive design, with introducing the leather palm-rests on its keyboards and whooping price tag of $7,499. Released in the year of 1997, and later discontinued, Apple only built 12,000 of those. The company miraculously now sells those many iPhones in just about 20 minutes.

IPhone X got remarked: -

The iPhone X won’t just be billed with an anniversary iPhone tag, but the X alone in the name will continue as being a heritage of the Apple. And if in case the default wallpaper happens to turn out being the very like that of the original one, there is surely going to be some cheers from the nerds out there in the keynote audience during any big iPhone X event. Although, after iPhone X being a hit already, speculations are there this ‘next gen’ iPhone X will continue to be milestone in the new range of smartphones to come.
