Overview

Every year Apple give us a new improved look on their iPhone range and this year is no exception. Incredibly durable glass has been used to create a stunning design, which is strong and practical. This is further improved by the colour-matched aerospace-grade aluminium band which gives additional strength.

Wireless charging is now possible due to this design which gives iPhone users the convenience of this technology. This makes it possible charge without connecting fiddly cables.

As with previous models the iPhone 8 has been precision-engineered to be water and dust resistant and has an IP67 rating.

The all new All Bionic processor now features multiple cores improving on efficiency both in speed and power usage. While also bringing the ability to interact with your smartphone in new ways including augmented reality.

Camera

With each new iPhone, we always hear about how much the camera has been improved. Apple seems to be able to constantly find new ways to make the camera we take with us everywhere to more powerful, and with an ever greater number of features.

The iPhone 8 has a 12 MP wide-angle camera sensor, which is larger and faster. It features a six-element lens, with a f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilisation.

These improvements result in you being able to take photos in any light conditions. As the sensor maximises the available light to produce the best results. Also, the optical image stabilisation adjusts and compensates for natural movement to remove blur from any of your photos.

An Apple-designed image signal processor (ISP) now makes it easier to take your photos than ever before. It detects elements in the scene, for example, people, motion and lighting conditions and optimises the photo. All this is done before you even decide to take the photo.

The ISP also gives you further improvements advanced pixel processing, wide colour capture, faster autofocus and enhanced HDR.

All these features give you the perfect photo every time.

Screen

There have been improvements to the 4.7-inch display which make it look brighter and more natural.

The Retina HD display makes everything look more natural using light sensor technology. This makes subtle changes to the image using an expansive colour spectrum.

True Tone technology makes your viewing experience more enjoyable. It uses four-channel ambient light sensors to make adjustments to the screen white balance. Which means you can look at your iPhone in various lighting conditions and environments without any strain to your eyes.

A11 Bionic processor

The Apple-designed A11 Bionic processor is highly efficient with four cores and is up to 70 per cent faster than the previous A10 Fusion. It also benefits from the addition of two performance cores.

A dedicated graphic processor unit (GPU) improves games and app speed. So you can enjoy beautiful and engaging games, which push what you expect from a smartphone.

This chip makes realistic augmented reality possible for new experiences.


Wireless charging

Qi is a wireless charging standard which is now starting to receive wide adoption in public places including hotels, airports and coffee shops. This means you can simply place your phone on to the charger wherever you are and keep the power topped up. Various manufacturers in particular car makers are also including this technology.

Apple’s elegant solution which enables wireless charging through a glass back cover brings this technology to a wider audience. Meaning iPhone users no longer have to worry about connecting cables.

This is due to be further enhanced with the introduction of AirPower, which will enable you to charge multiple Apple products on the same wireless charging mat.

Augmented reality

Games and apps will now be able to offer a new reality with enhanced AR technology. The combination of hardware and software makes it possible to create a 3D landscape you can move around and see from various angles.
