After much hype, the iPhone X has finally launched in-store - as Apple shares hit a record high.

The model was released in-store at 8am this morning, but eager Apple fans had been queuing outside stores all week to get their hands on the £1,000 phone.

The release of Apple's most high-end phone yet comes after its shares reached a new high yesterday, when fourth quarter results revealed a 12 per cent rise in revenue, to $52.6bn (£40.3bn). Net income also increased to $10.7bn, or $2.07 per share, from $9bn or $1.67 per share, the year before.

The latest edition of the iPhone was unveiled to celebrate its 10th anniversary. It includes wireless charging and the controversial Face ID - the feature which allows users to unlock their phones just by looking at it.

Customers who managed to pre-order the iPhone X last week will also receive their new phones today.
