The iPhone 8 has enough about it to make it an exciting upgrade for those with older iPhone handsets. There’s more speed, which powers Apple’s new AR (augmented reality) app push, a tweaked display and camera, a glossy glass rear and the addition of wireless charging and its dust and water-resistant body will be a fantastic bonus. The iPhone 8 runs Apple’s new iOS 11 operating system, giving you all your toggles on one screen and a merged notification bar and lock screen. Apps load promptly, games and videos look bright and vivid, and the screen itself is responsive. Multi-tasking is just as good. Apple Pay continues to be supported, and it works in tandem with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner for online purchases from certain websites. The only physical port on the iPhone 8 is the Lightning one on the bottom of the handset, and Apple includes a Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter in the box allowing you to plug in a set of headphones other than Apple’s own Lightning-connected EarPods.
The iPhone 8 is a smart update of the previous iPhone 7, but with a lot more power and speed. It has all the convenience expected from Apple, but with a lot more really useful apps to make life easier. It is great news that you can now have an iPhone 8 on a guaranteed mobile contract.
