To be frank, not much has changed since last year.

But that doesn’t mean it is a slouch at all. With everything remaining almost the same, iPhone 8 brings forth the most powerful hardware yet with the latest and greatest iOS 11 to boot.

Staying true to its 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS screen, it now comes with True-Tone display technology that automatically adjusts white balance to match the light around you. This will give a better viewing experience in all kinds of environments. With a wide colour gamut and the best colour accuracy in the industry, everything on the screen looks more brilliant and vibrant.

Regarding performance, iPhone 8 will now be featuring the latest A11 Bionic chipset. There will now be four efficiency cores that are up to 70 percent faster than A10 Fusion, and two performance cores that are up to 25 percent faster.

Augmented reality or AR is seen as the future, that’s why you will need the A11 Bionic chipset to power up the extraordinary augmented reality apps and games that will change the way you see the world.

Battery-wise, you might see a reduction in its battery capacity – but don’t let that fool you though. A second‑generation performance controller provides more power when you need it while delivering the same great battery life. With no charging cable required, iPhone 8 is truly designed for the future of wireless.

Not to mention that iOS 11 is also Apple’s most advanced operating system yet. New features and capabilities fundamentally improve the way you do things. The Files app brings all your files together. iOS 11 takes advantage of the security of Face ID and Touch ID to bring Apple Pay to Messages.

You will benefit from a trusted virtual assistant, Siri. With sophisticated features like proactive suggestions, predictive typing, and everybody’s favourite intelligent assistant. iOS makes everything you do easier, quicker, and more fun. Talking to Siri is an easier, faster way to get things done. And iOS makes Siri even more helpful. Thanks to advanced machine learning, you can simply speak naturally. And Siri does too, with a new, more expressive voice.
