10 Things that you should know about iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 is bigger than iPhone 7 and smaller than iPhone 7+. If you are one of those people who are not fully aware of what the new device that launched on 12th September offers, then we have compiled a crib-sheet for you. Obviously, that you are here we presume that you are aware that all iPhone gadgets are premium products that basically cater to the higher end of the market. Here are a few things that you need to know.

10. Bigger screen
The whole point of an iPhone 8 is that it is going to have a bigger screen than any device that Apple has yet made, but in a smaller body. This means that you will now have a phablet in your hand and you can enjoy the reasons that you buy a bigger phone for, without feeling sorry for the reasons that people do not buy a bigger phone for. It won’t stretch your hand to breakable point. A 5.8 inch display will enable this with a small and thin bezel at the top for the flash and camera. This will be the key reason for many people to upgrade to iPhone 8 since no other Apple phone has ever offered a screen experience of this size.

9. It will be faster than ever
Apple has decided to fuel up the engine a bit so that more power comes out. Let’s say it is going to feel like riding a mountain bike instead of a normal two wheeler without gears. You can expect a new chip that will not only run faster but will also offer a graphical grunt that would be better off than before. Apple owes this to the distance between the transistors on the chips that makes power management better. Now we don’t want to boggle your minds with physics and electronics so let’s just move on to say that this technology will be pricey- yes.

8. iPhone 8 is expensive
Sorry to break this to you if you were looking forward to an upgrade but like you already know, Apple caters to the higher end of the market so technology like this won’t come cheap given its past record. You will either need a decent income or you will have to save a little while before you can afford this phone. Think about the most expensive tariff that you have heard of, for phone contracts, then add some more. The phone alone will cost like $1000/ 900 GBP and 1250 AUD while you can add some meaty contract price to this figure and estimate the total for yourself.

7. It has two cameras
Maybe this won’t come as a surprise but the cameras will be arranged vertically instead of horizontally. This is for the AR functions which we will explain in a bit. AR stands for Augmented Reality. It will have better images in the form of sharpness and quality because of the optical image stabilisation in both cameras. Also you would be able to zoom in- literally! iPhone 7+ had a bokeh effect on screen which has been modified for iPhone 8 to make the images look smoother on social media. That is a big plus point for users. So basically, phones are a lot about images, photos and visuals.

6. Apple’s first AR machine
Apple has never brought an AR machine into the market before. This will be the first one. After the camera upgrades, this will be a big boost in the impression that Apple already has. The new iPhone will be able to see your surroundings and assess the depth of what is being looked at. This was a big deal at the launch so AR is going to be a big push this year.

5. OLED Display
Perhaps one of the key advantages that rival Samsung has had over Apple is the OLED display that offers rich colours. Apple though awesome with respect to graphics, did appear black before. The colours will now be rich and more immersive. Because of the faster screen refresh, the device will lend itself to VR too. The new display allows HD playbacks and better visuals in terms of smoothness. These panels are currently being produced by Samsung and if Apple has joined in, it will certainly make money through it.

4. No Home button
Actually no button at all. The button has previously already gone away on iPhone 7 where it vibrated when pushed, but now they have taken it away altogether. So how will users of apps “get home” as they use the new Apple iPhone? Well, the button will be there and on the same place but instead of being physically there- it will be at the bottom of the screen as users use their app. The button could in future move to the back of the phone for tapping or become an altogether different software type thing. Users might find it hard to adjust to this but we don’t see why it should be a problem when they are gaining so much screen in return for a button!

3. Battery: hope mustn’t die
They are saying that the battery is bigger this time. Well, let’s hope that it is because this is something that has been fairly anticipated by the users of iPhone. The larger screen will require more power to run because of the greater number of pixels so the internal gearing up was a necessity. We yet need to see a battery as good as Lumia or Nokia by the way, but with a 3000 mAh battery the iPhone 8 might not ruin a most precious moment by turning off just when you needed the camera. iPhone 7 had a 2700 mAh battery which livened things up when it was realized, perhaps Apple is now going to have the longest lasting iPhone to date and that too with CPU improvements. Double deal!

2. No headphone jack
Talking about the new design of iPhone 8, there is no headphone jack “anywhere” on the phone. Apple launched its earpods which is a harbinger of the wireless future that the company is looking at, because the current cans have certainly become relevant. If playing with the wire as you listen to something is still an addiction, you could find some Apple friendly headphones that you can insert in the lightning port.

1. No charging
apple iphone 8
This is something that would push me to buy the iPhone 8 device for sure. Imagine not having to plug in the cable! Apple has taken up the fore position on the front line of wireless technology where the all glass backs of the iPhone 8 and other two upcoming versions, announced on the 10th anniversary of the company, will enable the phones to charge without cables. Third party accessories that support the Qi standard of charging and their own AirMat accessory will be used for the purpose. This is a challenge that any users have been looking for a solution to for a long time.

Apple hopes that consumers won’t mind the hefty price tag which comes with the latest iPhone 8. Also it is moving back from the legacy of introducing one gadget every two years- it is going to launch three devices in one year. Apple remains 2 years ahead of its competitors and that is what scares the rivals most. With three devices coming out in a single year, how far is it leaving the others behind?

Just like the iPhone, Apple makes amazing laptops. The MacBook Pro is the jewel in the crown, with minimum specs of a 13.3-inch display, 2.3GHz dual core Intel Core i5 processor and 720p HD camera, the Pro is powerful, lightweight, and a joy to use. Anyone who does a lot of image editing, music making, or even watches movies on their laptop can rest assured that the Pro is a great choice.

Smartwatch

Although the Apple Watch does get a lot of attention as a great smartwatch, it might surprise you that other smartwatches do exist! Although designed differently to the Apple Watch, they still contain most of the same features. For example the Montblanc Summit is a bit more on the luxury side yet still has an interchangeable watch face, rechargeable battery, the ability to check phone notifications, heart rate monitor, etc. The Huawei Watch 2, Fitbit Blaze, and LG Watch Style are also worthy smartwatches to check out.

Xbox One X

LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and many more all make 4K TVs, so even though the choice is hard, they are all worth picking up.

iPhone X

The iPhone 8 is cool, but we have to say, the iPhone X is even cooler. Sleeker, larger, and sharper than ever before, the X is simply an awesome piece of tech and perhaps the best smartphone available. With a 5.8 inch screen, 7-megapixel front camera and 12-megapixel rear camera, 1125 x 2436 pixels, 3GB RAM, 64GB storage and running iOS 11, the X is a must for anyone who wants to take the next leap in smartphone tech.

You can keep track of your to-do lists, ask for recipe ideas, receive quick trivia facts, play music, and even turn off lights via voice commands. Useful and very cool.

Drone

Drones have become a huge gadget sensation recently, but it’s no surprise, considering how much fun they can be. The ability to film way up in the sky is something that can’t be done any other way. Some great footage has been appearing from locations that are nigh on impossible to access for humans, but for drones? Piece of cake. A must-have for travel and tech enthusiasts.

Kindle

For reading eBooks, it doesn’t get much better than the Amazon Kindle. With a display that appears to match a real book, it’s easy on the eye, but also very simple to adjust. Font size and brightness are changeable, and there’s definitely no glare. Kindles with a 6-inch display in black and white are available, and they are much lighter than you may think! The best part? Thousands of eBooks can be downloaded, sometimes for free.
