Time Magazine listed the iPhone X among the top 25 inventions of 2017 for its new display and Face ID.

Apple’s anniversary edition was listed as “A Smarter Smartphone” according to the magazine's rankings.

“I look at the design as something we really wanted to do since day one,” according to Dan Rico, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware engineering.

The device has had to face a lot of controversies since it came out but the demand has remained undeterred.

Bloomberg earlier reported that Apple could not fulfil the demand for the flagship device which is why they decided to reduce the accuracy of the Face ID, something Apple denied.

Samsung, arguably Apple's greatest smartphone rival, released an ad mocking the iPhone giant.

The list also includes Tesla's Model 3 electric car.

Other inventions include Elevators that move sideways, a mug that heats up the coffee itself, a hijab that empowers Muslim athletes.

Fidget spinners and the Nintendo Switch also found itself on the list.



Whether we agree or not that the iPhone X deserves to be in the top 25 technological inventions of the year, one thing is certain -- the hype it has generated around the world brings a lot of attention towards the tech industry.
