    TIME magazine has praised Apple’s iPhone X as being one of the 25 best inventions of 2017. The annual unranked list considers hundreds of inventions from all over the world in a bid to whittle it down to just 25.

    Other inventions that made the list include eSight 3, which are glasses that help the blind to see; the Tesla Model 3 electric car; the Nest Secure home security system; NASA Mars Insight craft; and the Nintendo Switch gaming console.

    In the section devoted to the iPhone X, entitled “A Smarter Smartphone,” Apple’s chief design officer, Jony Ive, said that deciding to remove the home button was based on “looking to the future. I actually think the path of holding onto features that have been effective, whatever the cost, is a path that leads to failure.”

    Addressing the question of the phone’s price tag, Ive said, “As you would expect, there’s a financial consequence to integrating the sheer amount of processing power into such a small device.”

    And as far as the next generation of iPhones after the iPhone X is concerned, Ive simply says “We have a clear vision,” noting that the iPhone X is “in some sense a completion of a chapter.”
