Is Apple really killing the iPhone X?

Is it already time to say goodbye to the iPhone X?

iPhone X is a really good device, the camera is nice and lot of people enjoy using this phone. Though it is an amazing device it does not represent great value for money at its price point. According to Apple insider iPhone X might get cancelled.  KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that disappointing sales of iPhone X would lead to cancellation of this model thus production of this device will end summer.

He said the main reason for cancellation of this device is lack in demand of phone, specially in china. Regarding the screen size of this device, it is not the biggest screen in the world. Thus this will lead to Apple cancelling/shutting down its device before launching the next one. iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s are still in market and iPhone X will be the first Apple device that will not live upto its expectations. Cancellation does not mean that iPhone X will be completely dead but its updated versions will be launched this year.

Reflector headlights are old style lights found in old cars or in the base model of the car whereas Projector headlights is a new technology which is not yet found in every car

This is also known as a sealed-beam headlight but in this combination the casing cannot be removed to replace a burnt-out bulb.

With improvements of technology, in the 1980s a new type of reflector headlights were introduced that used mirrors inside the headlight housing itself to guide the beams. Thu…

By autonomous cars we mean that we just hop in the vehicle and it takes us to our destination. But not all autonomous cars are created equally there are different levels of autonomy. The concept of "Autonomy Levels" was established by the international Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) in 2014, as part of its report, in which the industry body began to develop a language we could use to talk about in this burgeoning field.

So six levels of autonomy were revealed by this report that automakers would need to achieve, for building the no-steering-wheel self-driving bubble pods of the future.

So automakers are following SAE standard and following are 6 levels of autonomous vehicles.

Most vehicles nowadays are at this level. In this Accelerat…
