What’s New: iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X

What’s New: iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X

Avid buyers of Apple products we’re excited for the information released about 2017’s new iPhone. The biggest surprise was, being this was the 10th anniversary of iPhone generations, Apple created an “iPhone X,” along with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. iPhone 8 and 8 plus is already available for as low at $699. 

The iPhone 8 continues the 7 series features including the new jack for headphone and the jack adapter. The overall design is still the same as previous generations, including the touch ID home button and the bezel surrounding the frame..

 What’s new?

is the entirely glass body enclosed in an aluminum frame, and the glass is said to be most durable glass yet as it’s placed in an aluminum structure and reinforced steel that’s water and dust resistant. The speakers of the iPhone 8 is about 25 % louder than previous generations including the 7, with a deeper bass. 

The iPhone 8 display is about 1 inch smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus, both equipped with True Tone Support, the feature that allows adaptation to color temperature and intensity to ambient light. Basically, say you step outside your dark room to a brightly lit room, the iPhone 8 and 8 plus will adapt the screen to an intensity better adjusted for your eyes. It’s like a paper-viewing experience, as described. 3D touch is the newest feature, and there are wide varieties of color to be chosen. 

There is a new charging feature, a Qi-based inductive wireless charging, allowing charging to take place when the phones are placed atop this charging station. Very high-tech for modern day technology, but certainly an interesting one at best.


The new six-core Bionic chip apparently makes this the smartest and fastest iPhone yet. It makes the experience of gaming and using this iPhone closer to reality. This iPhone is fastest, smartest, and even a “faster learner” than all iPhones.

The new camera is sharpest in quality, while the A11 brings forth better low-light quality images, faster autofocus, new pixel-processing technologies, and even catches less “noise” in images captured. These are only some of the camera qualities the iPhone 8 and 8 plus has to offer!

True Tone is available on each phone, which is easily described as a lighting detector that will automatically alter the lighting on your phone to best suit your eyes and to meet a standard of a natural viewing experience. 

How To Choose? Deciding to go with an iPhone 8 or 8 plus? Pick from Silver, Space Grey, or a Rosie-gold. 


And finally- the iPhone X

The moment we’ve all been waiting for. The 10th generation of iPhone called for an entirely new experience, which is where the iPhone X came from. This smartphone is an “all-display” featured phone, designed unlike the iPhone as we know it. It’s 5.8 inches of screen is wrapped into a stainless steel band and a durable all-glass body (like the iPhone 8 and 8 plus, without the bezels). 

This super-retina technology utilizes a life-life experience of color on this phone also features deep black and million-to-one contrast, including the highest resolution and pixel density ever in iPhone history. This amazing technological advancement also includes HDR, wide color, 3D Touch, and True Tone. 

Rather than a home button, users swipe to open or access “home.” You can “tap to wake” meaning access your notifications, a side button for Siri, and swiping down opens your control center.

iPhone X also allows for fastest, multiple use performance thanks to the ALL Bionic chip (better than A10), including faster higher-

efficiency cores, multi-thread work, GPU (image processor, A11 motion coprocessor, and the Secure Enclave for Face ID. What’s more is this battery lasts approximately two hours longer than iPhone 7. 

Facial Identification

Face recognition is the newest and probably most interesting part of iPhone X. Instead of typing in a password, the phone recognizes your face by creating a 3D image with the front-face camera. This feature also allows you to make purchases and access personal apps. This can read through hats, makeup, beards, and more, but will only open if you’re actually looking at the screen. It doesn’t unlock if you’re looking away or if it’s looking at a photograph or other replicas. In other words, the iPhone X is quite aware of who is and isn’t its owner.


Fun Features

Every smartphone user loves Emoticons, but now there are Animoji for the iPhone X. This 3D emoji mimics your facial expression, literally translating your facial expressions into a Animoji for iMessage!

Portrait lighting creates the best lighting ever whether it’s in selfie mode or regular camera mode! The back camera also includes optical image stabilization, better augmented reality experience, and a TrueDepth camera.

The iPhone X starts at $999 and comes either with 64 or 256GB of storage. Although this is not yet available, it will be sold by the end of October! You can purchase this phone in Silver or Space Gray.
