The new screen size will bring some headaches for the mobile development industry, but the AI capabilities offer new opportunities.

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its newest lineup of smartphones, including the iPhone X (10). For mobile development firms, one of the most significant changes is that the display of the iPhone X has a different aspect ratio than the iPhone 7 and 8. That means they'll need to design apps to accommodate both screen sizes.

The iPhone X also has some new features that could be incorporated into apps. For example, it has 3D facial recognition, an HDR screen and a groundbreaking neural engine. Some observers say the artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities infused into the new phone's hardware and software could enable much more sophisticated apps.

However, the iPhone X also carries a hefty $999 price tag, and it remains to be seen how many users will be willing to hand over that much money for the latest bells and whistles on a smartphone.
