The Apple iPhone 8 is Sleeker, More Powerful and More Interactive

by Tracey Smidt

On September 12 Apple will launch three new iPhones: the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the highly-anticipated iPhone 8. The iPhones 7s and 7s Plus are upgrades of last year's iPhone 7, meaning faster chips and better battery life. The iPhone 8, however, will reportedly have completely new design and added features when compared to its predecessor.

With a price tag of $1000, the iPhone 8 will be available in three colors, the usual black and white models, and the third a possible "blush gold" according to reports. It is said to have an edge to edge display with wireless charging, as well as being waterproof.

In addition to a bigger screen the iPhone 8 will have a virtual home button, making it possible to hide or resize the interface. Other features include facial recognition where the user's face is scanned to unlock the phone, unlike previous models which used Touch ID fingerprint technology. The added security features make the new model a must-have for those who value ease of use and privacy.
Unfortunately, the features and specifications are still based on unconfirmed reports, and all that can be done is to wait for September 12 when the phones are launched.

The new iPhones will be available in iStores on September 22 in the U.S, and will be available worldwide soon after.

In light of last year's iPhone 7 "headphone jack upgrade" fiasco and speculation that headphone jacks are back with the iPhone 8, are you still excited to upgrade to the new iPhone? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
