    Watching the videos of the hands on of the iPhone X seen a few when on home screen in landscape and it seems the apps don't rotate like they do on iPhone Plus?

    Surely they've keep this function? I like to use in landscape and liked the fact everything rotated, surely for a bigger screen they haven't "forgot" ?

    Apple probably didn't want to show the notch obscuring the screen

    Correct, this is a step backward from the $200 less expensive 8 Plus. It also gives more credence to a larger iPhone X model next year, with a form factor that is closer to iPhone 6/6s/7/8 Plus, and has the landscape mode homescreen added back.

    iPhone X apps will act like apps on the 4.7” model iPhones.

    They will not feature the expanded options and UI sometimes found on the Plus model apps.

    What's the expanded option?

    Think it's daft, a bigger screen than plus yet doesn't rotate? Seen some demo that still had the slide up to home in landscape so that would still work?

    Some apps are tweaked for the Plus and act more like the iPad. For example Safari has tabs, and Mail has a reading pane.

    This won’t happen with the iPhone X.

    The iPhone X is the 4.7 inch iPhone's cousin so apps and menus will perform similarly on both. The Plus's cousin will be coming next year but I don't even wanna know what kind of cash its gonna require.

    That’s the thing, I’m looking for Forward to an X-Plus but it’s starting price will be $1099 for 64gb and $1249 for 256gb.

    I’m sorry but I just can’t. That exceeds my value threshold for smartphones.

    I'm doubtful that this new pricing for the X is going to stick. I think it's priced so high this year because of the anniversary and the limited OLED. If they start doing away with the old models and next year have an updated X and X plus, I see it coming down at least a hundred dollars as it would be replacing the old models. At least that's what I hope. Maybe, the new X will start at 799 or 899 and the X plus starts at 899 or 999. Keeping fingers crossed.

    Some apps will work in landscape, some won't. If you use landscape a lot, you should stick with the Plus.

    Apple never reduces prices without removing features. It’s not gonna happen.

    I believe they reduced the price of the original iPhone. I just find it hard to believe that they're going to stick with a $999/$1099 starting price for X/X plus, basically increasing the iPhone starting price by $300-400.

    It's a new pricing tier for the iPhone. The LCD models may well stick around with the incremental updates every year and cost the same $699 as usual.

    I hope so if they keep the X priced as it is. If they only keep the X starting at $1K, I can see them losing customers.
