Apple’s new iPhone X has made TIME’s annual unranked list of the 25 best products of the year 2017, joining other inventions like guilt-free ice cream, Nintendo Switch and fidget spinner.
The publication commented on Thursday that iPhone X is to Dan Riccio, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Hardware Engineering, quite literally a dream come true.
“I look at the design as something we really wanted to do since day one,” he said.
To make an iPhone with an edge-to-edge OLED display, a monster chip optimized for augmented reality and a sophisticated camera system which lets users unlock the phone with their face, Apple had to kill the Home button and introduce additional gestures.
That decision was driven by “looking to the future,” Apple’s design tzar Jonathan Ive said in a separate interview with TIME. “I actually think the path of holding onto features that have been effective, whatever the cost, is a path that leads to failure,” he said.
“We have a clear vision” for the next generation of iPhones, Ive said, adding that the first-ever OLED phone from Apple is “in some sense a completion of a chapter.”
Other products that made TIME’s list include the Halo Top low-calorie ice cream, the Jibo robot, 3D-printed Adidas shoes, a heated mug that keeps coffee warm, a multi-directional elevator, Tesla’s Model 3, DJI’s Spark drone and—yes—fidget spinner!
