Apple iPhone 8
This should have been a 7S. That simple. But it’s complicated. Too complicated perhaps for Apple as we used to know it.
A new chipset with an extra couple of processor cores and the first in-house GPU, an all-glass body, a superior camera. Any other year, those sorts of things would’ve made a perfectly acceptable S upgrade. You know what we mean, we’ve all been there. Apple tells everyone it’s hard to believe how much has changed. Pretty much everyone eventually agrees on the hard-to-believe bit. Some hundred-million-units-sold later, we’re back at step 1.
It used to be that simple. Well, not anymore. Apple is in fast-forward mode and skips straight to number eight.
So, there we are. The iPhone 8 is out with an all-glass design, the powerful new chip, the improved camera and, at long last, wireless charging. The True Tone support for the display is duly noted. The doubled base storage and Bluetooth 5 support are welcome additions as well. But it’s all iterative, as you’ll notice reading the specs below.
