Apple has often implemented interesting solutions in new products and then moved them to older ones. A similar situation could have occurred with one Apple Watch solution, which did not hit the iPhone X.
Apple is keen to draw inspiration, modify and implement previously introduced solutions in its various new products. It turns out that the same situation could have touched the iPhone X. Smartphone was supposed to get a novelty already known from the first Apple Watch . What are you talking about? About Nightstand mode, known as Bedside mode . The first Apple Watch debuted with Nightstand mode, which allows you to view the current time, date, alarm or battery level of the smartwatch battery in green if it was placed on its side and was connected to the charger. What's more, the screen gradually brightens just before the alarm set to Apple Watch, because normally after charging it becomes black. Just tap the screen to wake up.Apple Vice President of Software – Craig Federighi responded to one of the user's e-mails. This one asked Federighi whether such a feature would ever appear on the iPhone X. In response, it was informed that it was by Apple the most contemplated , although ultimately not appeared in the new flag. He stated that Nightstand mode would be a good option for people who load their smartphone by placing it in the dock. Meanwhile, charging a smartphone through such a solution is not very popular. It is possible that this mode will appear with iOS 11.1 or in the future. There is also a high probability that Apple completely abandoned this idea . Source: MacRumors
