Artist and YouTuber Sketch Art turned an iPhone X into mobile street art. Using spray paint, lids, tape, paper, and techniques you might have seen performed live on a downtown sidewalk, he painted a “custom skin” for his iPhone. I’ve always been fascinated by this artform, and while I wouldn’t do it to my own iPhone X, I thought it was amazing. The video below is a 17 minute version where he walks us through the whole process. A 3 minute version posted to Facebook has garnered some 6 million views, but you’ll have to go there to view it.

Michael Gartenberg is a former Apple Senior Director of Product Marketing and reported directly to Phil Schiller. Currently, he’s a technology analyst and has also been a frequent guest on Background Mode. In this special edition, I asked Michael about his thoughts on his new iPhone X.

If you have an iPhone X and want to record Animoji longer than 10 seconds, and don’t want to have to send your creations to someone just so you can save them, AnimojiStudio has you covered. The Maccast’s Adam Christianson turned me on to the app, and it’s pretty awesome. You can record and save Animoji videos without Apple’s built-in 10 second cap, and you can live stream your Animoji-fied self on services like Periscope. AnimojiStudio is free, but comes with a catch: it uses Apple’s private APIs so it isn’t on the App Store. You’ll need a paid or free developer account and Xcode to compile and install the app, or sideload the precompiled IPA file.
