Wireless charging, an all glass design, and the fastest, smartest chip ever. They all seem like things of the future but instead are happening now! These are just some of the features of the all new Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The two new additions to the iPhone family were released on September 22, 2017.

“I like the look of the iPhone 8 and I also like the new upgrades it has,” senior Ramije Egriu said.

Prices ranging from $699 to $949 may stop you from even considering to purchse this phone but the new features make it difficult to stay away. An all new design featuring Apple’s most durable glass, for instance, gives the product extra water and dust resistance.

Improved from older models, both battery life and storage capacity have been increased. The new iPhone can also have between 64 or 256 GB of memory, and the fastest and smartest chip to ever be in a smartphone.

Now there will be less need to worry about your phone running out of space, causing you to miss a picture, or not recording an important moment.

Though they contain this new technology, some people may still remain hesitant to buy the new device.
“It’s completely overpriced and I would just get an older model of an iPhone,” senior Sarah Gossman said.

Agreeing with Gossman, Egriu said, “Considering I have the iPhone 7, the features are not all that different for me to buy the newest version.”

At the end of the day, it comes down to whether the new features of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are worth it.
For those who have always wanted the newest technology, the perks of this new iPhone make it an easy buy.
