Last night, Apple once again launched their latest line of products while the public gasped at the features and price-tags. The top of the range was the $1000 iPhone X, which has an all-screen display, unlocks using facial recognition software, and can be charged wirelessly, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus served as an upgrade for their current products. Also introduced at the launch was the Apple Watch 3, the first of its kind to work independently from the iPhone.

The new phones’ glass back has doubled the likelihood of smashing it:
