    A new video posted to YouTube recently by Brooke Amelia Peterson has provided a detailed glimpse at the iPhone X in Space Gray (removed, but still available on Reddit). Peterson is the daughter of an Apple engineer and in the video she visits the company's 1 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino, California.

    While touring the campus (which begins at around 2:10 in the video), Brooke and her dad stop for lunch at Caffè Macs, and he takes out an iPhone X to pay for their food using Apple Pay and Face ID. Brooke then takes a longer look at the iPhone X, swiping through the Home Screen's pages, and activating Control Center and the Cover Sheet through the right and left "ears," respectively.

    A screenshot from the YouTube video, which has since been removed

    It appears that Cover Sheet can also be toggled by swiping closer to the center of the "notch," although Apple placed the activation hot spot for this piece of UI on the left of the notch to avoid users smudging the front-facing cameras.

    The video provides glimpses at the new and elongated Side Button, as well as the Space Gray coloring on the back of the iPhone X. Brooke opens the Camera, Calendar, and Notes apps, and her dad sends an Animoji of an alien to show off the new facial recognition features coming to the Messages app. Her dad also briefly mentions that his team will be moving to Apple Park in December.

    Pre-orders for the iPhone X will begin this Friday, October 27 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, and Apple today just announced that there will be some stock of the smartphone for walk-in customers arriving early to its retail locations on November 3, the iPhone X launch day. For more details about Apple's upcoming tenth-anniversary smartphone, check out our iPhone X Roundup.

    Update (8:45 a.m. PT): The video has been removed from YouTube.

    Definitely a marketing move from Apple to appeal to her audience base, which I assume is Teens and younger.

    The video was recorded on 9-15-17. I'd say the ok was given to post by Daddy. She even made him sit in the back seat. :apple:

    I like how her father says the "iPhone Eks". Then later clarifies it's the "ten".

    The video was shot in the visitors centre and her dad having the iPhone X isn’t an issue as it’s after Apple’s keynote event and no longer a surprise, other images of people using the IPhone X started to appear online days after Apple’s keynote.

    What the hell is this UI? So the flashlight and camera buttons are just going to obstruct notifications?

    Apple is still seeing this as unreleased hardware (ask any developer that included "optimised for iPhone X" in their release notes. So technically it's a leak. And Apple is very clear about marketing.

    Historically, I always upgrade. But I feel the conflict within me about this product. Not sure what I'll do this Friday.

    If you're only interested in iPhone and not clothes shopping and buying cookies, skip to 3:09

    FaceID appears to have worked well when he paid with it... nice looking phone though i still i cant see how exactly it justifies a price of 1150€+...

    Video starts at 2:50 with Apple Pay.
    Seriously skip it right then, and start again from 3:08.

    The music gave me headache. :confused:

    This was shot September 15. Don't worry guys, I'm sure they have polished the UI much more. That flashlight obstructing the notifications will go away.
