New video of a silver iPhone X in the wild surfaces online – BGR

We’re finally getting close, folks. Pre-orders for Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone X will finally open up this coming Friday, with deliveries slated to begin just one week later on November 3. With the iPhone X release now less than two weeks away, we’re starting to see more photos and videos of Apple’s flagship device out in the wild. Most recently, a 10-second video uploaded to Reddit over the weekend shows off a silver iPhone X in all its glory.

The edge to edge display looks jaw-dropping, but the video is also notable because it shows us what the Instagram looks like with the controversial notch design of the iPhone X. To be fair, the iPhone X’s notch looks like an eyesore in the video here, but we’ve heard a few reports that it’s far less jarring when using the device as opposed to staring at photos or videos of it.

The video can be seen below.

Another iPhone X in the wild (Loud Audio) from apple


The Instagram layout looks a bit inelegant, to say the least, but it stands to reason that it will be far less of an issue once developers update their apps accordingly. That notwithstanding, folks lucky enough to get the iPhone X on launch day will likely experience more than a few notch-related headaches.

As one Redditor commented:

I have been making iPhone apps for 8 years now. Testing my app on iPhone X produces a handful of problems in Portrait and about a million problems in Landscape.

Even if you do everything exactly as Apple wants, there’s going to be issues. The API to handle the notch “correctly” (safe area) is new in iOS 11. There’s no way to have preemptively written to support it. Readable layout guides get you some of the way there, but only in landscape and not really.

Day 1 iPhone X users are in for problems in most apps.

That said, seeing as how the iPhone X marks the first radical redesign to the iPhone form factor since 2014, it’s a safe bet that early adopters will gladly experience a few growing pains for the iPhone X’s edgeless OLED display.

And while we’re on the topic, below are a few iPhone X photos that have surfaced online over the past few weeks.

Destiny 2 Bright Engrams: here’s how much Silver costs, and what you can and can’t buy with it

Destiny 2’s microtransactions completely sorted out: Silver, Silver Dust, Bright Engrams and Eververse explained, complete with prices.

Alongside Destiny 2’s launch, the in-game microtransactions store, Eververse Trading Company, has opened its doors to sell Bright Engrams. Let’s break it down as part of our Destiny 2 guide series.

Tess Everis, the vendor at Eververse, will regularly hand out free rewards including shaders, weapon mods and even low-level gear. Her real function, however, is to sell and decrypt Bright Engrams.

Bright Engrams are Destiny 2’s loot boxes, can be earned for free in-game or purchased via microtransaction. The contents are randomised, similar to loot boxes in other games.

You earn Bright Engrams every time you level up past 20, or potentially whenever you reach a new faction reputation level with any of the NPCs that you can grind faction rep with.

If you’d rather pay up, Eververse accepts two in-game currencies – Silver and Bright Dust. Silver is purchased with real money and used to buy Bright Engrams. Bright Dust is obtained by dismantling items found in Bright Engrams, or sometimes as part of the contents of a Bright Engram, and is used to buy individual items.

By the way, Eververse is first accessible upon reaching the Farm, Destiny 2’s first social space, but you’ll need to reach level 20 before you can begin purchasing Bright Engrams or individual customisation items.


What’s inside Bright Engrams?

Bright Engrams each contain a random assortment of goodies, as outlined in-game in Destiny 2. As you’ll see in the image above, there’s a wide range of possible outcomes.

The cosmetic items you’ll find in a Bright Engram can include weapon Ornaments, new armour, emotes, sparrows, ships, shaders, mods and more.

The armour sets will drop at level one, since being able to buy high level drops for money would be a bit dodgy, but you can then Infuse them as you would any weapons or gear in Destiny 2 if you like the look.

Duplicates are a possibility, but dismantling items found in Bright Engrams will net you Bright Dust. You can then use this Bright Dust to purchase the specific goodies you’re after, if RNGesus has not blessed you.

Silver prices and Bright Engram bundles

Now onto Silver. Prices and bundles haven’t changed from the days of Destiny 1. Here’s what you’ll be paying in real-money:

  • 500 Silver – $5, £4.50
  • 1000 (+100) – $10, £8.49
  • 2000 (+300) – $20, £16.79
  • 5000 (+800) – $50, £40

You use this Silver to buy a single Bright Engram, or a bundle of three or five. One Bright Engram costs 200 Silver, three cost 500 Silver, and five will set you back 800 Silver.

Silver is now live on the PlayStation and Xbox stores, accessible in-game or directly via the Destiny 2 page on the console storefront.

Destiny 2 is out now on PS4, and Xbox One.

Destiny 2 Definitely has Microtransactions, Silver Currency is Back


It seems that Destiny 2 will definitely have microtransactions like its predecessor, and players are none too happy about the in-game purchases.

Following the leak of the official GameStop guide that revealed many details of Destiny 2’s gameplay including exotic gear, missions, and other content, the gaming retailer once again is the source of the information. This time though, the news that Destiny 2 will have microtransactions through it’s in-game currency known as Silver comes from a GameStop flyer that advertised the upcoming game.

In the flyer from GameStop that’s shown above and was shared via Twitter, the main game itself was the focus of the ad as well as some of the preorder bonuses available through GameStop that include gear and collectible figures. The special PlayStation 4 Pro bundle is also featured, but the evidence of the microtransactions comes from the bottom-right corner where several digital items are advertised via purchasable codes. Two of the items offer prices for Silver, the currency used for in-game purchases in the first game, confirming that microtransactions are back for Destiny 2.

The prices listed for each amount of Silver are as follows, in case the text is to small to easily read:

  • Destiny 2 Silver: 1000 (+100 Bonus) $9.99
  • Destiny 2 Silver: 2000 (+300 Bonus) $19.99

Following the tweet from the Destiny 2 Intel account those who replied to it expressed a mix of frustration that microtransactions are back and a lack of surprise that they’d return. It seemed unlikely that the microtransactions would be removed in the second game since they were present in the first, but the likelihood of them returning didn’t do much to stifle the disappointment with them being confirmed.

During the big leak of Destiny 2 content that can be seen here through Reddit, there was also talk of an “Eververse-specific curreny,” Eververse being the in-game marketplace for Destiny 2. While there isn’t much information currently available on the currency, it’s known that players can acquire it through “dismantling items acquired via Bright engrams.”

Destiny 2 and its microtransactions will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on Sept. 6 and PC on Oct. 24.
