The Apple iPhone 8 in the news


Apple iPhone 8 Product details

The Apple iPhone 8 is already the 10th generation of iPhones and although it may look a bit skinny compared to the simultaneously announced iPhone X, it is the iPhone for the masses. Moreover, both phones share many of the same features and even components. What all this means in practice, we will try to explain as well as possible.

Familiar appearance, this time of glass

The iPhone 8 is very similar to the iPhone 7 of the previous year. This time, however, he has a glass back that Apple believes is the strongest glass ever in a smartphone. The two glass plates are held together by a solid edge of aluminium in a matching colour. It holds the whole thing together so tightly that the iPhone 8 is just as water-resistant as before. He also keeps dust out. An advantage of the glass back is that the iPhone is now suitable for wireless charging. This is not really fast, especially compared to a cable. Moreover, the iPhone must be reasonably aligned on the charger for it to work. Yet it is very handy in practice, especially on the bedside table. No more fiddling with a string that breaks easily and is expensive to replace.

Professional lighting

You may call the Apple iPhone 8 a modest update to last year's iPhone 7. New is that the camera of this smaller 4.7 inch model is now equipped with optical image stabilization. The year before, this was only spent on the much more expensive Plus model. The advantage of optical image stabilization is that it produces sharper pictures, even in the dark. Also new but in the form of a function is Portrait Exposure. That's an extension of the portrait mode Apple introduced with the iPhone 7. With Portrait Lighting (also known as Portrait Lighting) you shoot photos that roll right out of a photo studio. With a complete black background, for example.

Main Apple iPhone 8 specifications

  • Agile 4.7-inch Retina HD display with True Tone
  • improved 12 megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation
  • Unprecedentedly powerful Apple's own A11 Bionic processor
  • Speakfast mobile web browsing on the go with 4G
  • 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera for selfies and video calls
  • Available in 64 and 256GB storage
  • Spat, Water and dust resistant (IP67 according to IEC standard 60529)

Especial mention for A11 Bionic

Also noteworthy is the built-in A11 Bionic processor. Apple makes it, and of course it's the fastest, most powerful processor Apple has ever made. More importantly, he's become smarter. For example, the processor helps to take better photos by using brutal processing power. It also enables various Augmented Reality applications. Aim at the world with your camera and virtual objects or figures are added. Expect an avalanche of AR apps and games that are very realistic soon. They're all small improvements that might not be so exciting themselves. Upgrading an iPhone 7 to an iPhone 8 therefore doesn't sound very logical, but if you come from an older iPhone, the iPhone 8 is not only a good choice but also the logical one.
