Is The iPhone 8 A Stun­ning New Phone Or A Glori­fied up­date?

SmartHouse - - FIRST LOOK | JAYBIRD -

Se­ri­ous ques­tions are be­ing raised about the new Ap­ple iPhone 8 of­fer­ing, with some say­ing it's more an up­grade than a brand-new phone ooz­ing new tech­nol­ogy.

Ap­ple CEO Tim Cook said “It's truly amaz­ing how much iPhone im­pacts the world each and every day. Our in­ten­tion with iPhone has al­ways been to cre­ate some­thing so pow­er­ful, so im­mer­sive and so mag­i­cal, that the hard­ware vir­tu­ally dis­ap­pears.”

So far, the changes to iPhone 8 are what you'd ex­pect from an an­nual smart­phone up­grade. Stronger glass. Im­proved speak­ers. An A11 “bionic” chip.

Glass on the front and back. Sil­ver, space grey, and gold. “The de­sign is all new” claims Cook, some said “Oh re­ally”.

Like the iPhone X, the two-new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus phones will come with wire­less charg­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is cheaper than the new iPhone X 10 and on sale sooner, and is avail­able in space grey, sil­ver and gold. Again, there will be both 64GB and 256GB mod­els. The 64GB mod­els start at $1079 for iPhone 8 and $1229 for iPhone 8 Plus.
