Time to upgrade later this year.
Apple has finally unveiled both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models, the latest generation of brand new iPhones.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will act as the newest yearly models of the iPhone, with faster processors, upgraded cameras, and a brand new True Tone display that should make watching videos, playing games, and looking at photos on your phone a lot more exciting than before.
The phones will feature glass backs that will help enable wireless charging, a new feature that will be available with the phones’ debut, as well as the same display the 10.5-inch iPad Pro already uses, which will adjust your screen lighting based on the lighting in the room you’re in for better, more accurate color and viewing.
The A10 Fusion processor in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be upgraded in both new phones to the A11 Bionic chip, a six-core processor with two performance cores that are 25% faster than the A10. Its additional four cores are 70% faster than the A10 as well.
The camera will feature a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and a whole new host of camera features as well, which support for 4K/60fps video and slow motion videos being raised in resolution to support up to 1080p resolution at 240fps.
You’ll be able to pick up the phone in three colors: silver, space grey, and gold, which looks a lot like the Rose Gold coloring featured with the previous models. The iPhone 8 will run at $699 for a 64GB model, where the 8 Plus will start at $799 for the same storage space. If you want to upgrade you’ll need to pony up $849 and $949, and you’ll be able to preorder both phones starting on Friday, September 15. They’ll start making their debuts on September 22.
