Apple has launched two new smartphones, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, at a major event in California.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are upgrades to Apple’s current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus range, updating some of the main features found on Apple’s current products.
Initially, most pundits thought the iPhone 8 would be Apple’s main new phone – however it instead released three smartphones as part of the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone.
The new iPhone have louder speakers with deeper bass, new screens that feature the TrueTone color-correction technology which previously are only available on iPads.
The iPhone 8 Plus model is physically larger (5.5 inch screen), and it has a longer battery life, and also features a superior two-lens camera.
These two devices have a powerful new A11 chip that promises to be both more powerful and more emergency efficient than its predecessor, A10.
Also, the new iPhone 8 features a “wireless charging” a feature that has been on the Apple Watch for a while.
Instead of plugging a wire into the phone, you’ll be able to inductively charge it via contact with a charging pad — that’s a convenient way of charging.
Pricing starts, at $699 for iPhone 8 and $799 for iPhone 8 Plus. The Storage on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus are 64gb and 256gb respectively
