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