There is one change specific to the iPhone X. Apple has added a small bar underneath the icons at the top right side of the device on the Lock screen. It is designed to make the location of Control Center more clear. iPhone X users access Control Center by swiping from the top-right side of the screen. iOS 11.2 also brings support for faster 7.5W wireless charging for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.
