TUESDAY BLOWOUT: Every NEW or RENEWING paid subscriber receives AN EXTRA YEAR FREE.

As expected, Apple prices iPhone X at $999. Now that you know what it offers, is it worth the high price tag? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

Tuesday Highlights: iPhone 8 and 8 Plus reviews are in with USA Today's Ed Baig saying the 8 is "an excellent phone forced to the shadows by iPhone X", Farhad Manjoo finds them "a worthy refinement before the next generation", Jon Gruber says there's a lot to love with nothing to dislike but regrets they "debut alongside iPhone X [thus] nobody is excited about them", and Matthew Panzarino's review is all about the camera which he says is "killer"—reviews aplenty in our Reviews section; iOS 11 rolls out today, and the usual in-depth review from Ars Technica, Cult of Mac, The Verge, Macworld, and others; meanwhile, Seth Archer believes iPhone in danger of losing "place as our primary digital hub"; Jonny Evans discusses Apple's growing control of the silicon inside iDevices; Juniper Research finds 40% of Apple users surveyed will "spurn facial recognition".

Today's MacUpdate Promo offers 50% savings on Notebooks for just $9.50. "Notebooks is the only notebook you ever need.
