iPhone X marks the spot for Apple. It's The Daily Crunch.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 2017 By Darrell Etherington

The iPhone X has landed, along with a bunch of other new Apple kit. Plus, Facebook hopes to stop people profiting from naughty stuff. All that and more in The Daily Crunch for September 13, 2017.

1. Everything iPhone, Apple TV and Apple Watch

The iPhone event happened yesterday, and everything new was revealed. Not a lot of surprises, thanks to some serious leaks this time around, but the iPhone X, iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K are still big news.

We've got coverage across the lineup, including hands-on and opinion. It's one of Apple's more ambitious product launches, so there's a lot to take in – but it's also one of the more potentially impactful.

2. Hands on with the iPhone X

The iPhone X is almost definitely the star of the show – it's got a nearly full-bleed display, as well as a brand new advanced camera to enable face unlocking and advanced 3D depth perception on the front. Here's what it's like in person.

3. Facebook bans monetization of bad stuff

Facebook is facing the heat from ads that potentially swayed the course of the election, so now it's banning monetization of content that features violence, porn, drug use or hate. No water should mean weeds don't grow in their walled garden – or at least that's the intent.

4. Meanwhile Facebook is trying group video chat

In a bid to drum up some engagement, Facebook also quietly launched a new group video chat called Bonfire in some markets. It looks like Houseparty, but I hope it works only because maybe then it'll help stop the constant stream of re-engagement spam Facebook seems to send out these days.

5. A training platform for gamers? Sure.

I think professional sports are dumb but I also think professional gaming is dumb. Maybe dumber. This new startup for training pro gamers seems very dumb as a result, but I'm probably just a dinosaur.

6. Why you do and don't want the new iPhone X

Matt says he doesn't want the iPhone X, and would much rather upgrade to the iPhone 8. I disagree. We both have good points (I'm right of course).

7. People have feelings about this Bodega startup

A startup founded by ex-Googlers wants to install what amount to vending machines in busy spots to replace bodegas. It even stole the name 'Bodega.' People generally seem to think this is the latest example of startup bros being awful.
