When Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak first started Apple out of their own garage, they probably never dreamed that they would be changing technology for the better.
Fast forward ten years later, Apple has grown to become a company who has one of the highest selling smartphones and a ranking of number one most profitable company in the world.
For its ten year anniversary, Apple is releasing several new phones including the iPhone 8 and a futuristic iPhone X.
Many fans were excited when hearing about this release until they found out the price.
The pricing starts at $999 for the iPhone X with a 64GB storage plan. On the other hand it starts at a merely $699 for the iPhone 8 and $799 for the iPhone 8 plus.
Some of the new iPhone features includes being able to swipe your finger from the bottom of the screen no matter what application you are on.
In addition, the glass on this new phone is more durable than ever and it is very difficult to shatter which is a major improvement considering how fragile iPhone’s are.
Apple is also changing the security on the phone. Now, consumers are able to unlock the iphone and get into certain applications like online bank accounts and ApplePay through a face recognition.
This has raised concern from many critics who believe that hackers can get in with a picture.
Also, is it really necessary to change the security for the iPhone?
Last year, FBI agents were unable to hack into an iPhone because they couldn’t break through the six-digit code.
The camera and the quality of the pictures have also been changed. Apple has announced that there will be built in studio-quality lighting.
In addition, when you take a picture with the iPhone X, the camera can mirror your expression and convert it into emojis.
The camera adapts to your face over time so that you are not locked out of the phone when you get a haircut for example.
However, the most extraordinary improvement is the wireless charger.
When you buy the phone, it comes with a mat where you set your phone down on it and it charges.
All of these new features seem great, but many are not convinced that the extra $300 is worth the only minor improvements between them.
While the iPhone 8 does not get as much attention, it still a major step up from the iPhone 7 and is very similar to the iPhone X.
The iPhone 8 is smaller, the screen does not cover the entire front face, there is no Face ID and its screen does not adapt as well.
I think that the iPhone 8 would be the better decision because of the better value for the many similarities it has with the great, new iPhone X.
You can also buy the iPhone 8 and get it right now rather than waiting for two full aggravating months to spend a fortune.
If you have the money for the iPhone 8, you should get it as soon as possible because demand for it is expected to rise with crowds of people who don’t want to pay $1,000 for a smartphone.
If you are due for an upgrade, I would highly recommend buying an iPhone from this generation rather than any other since more has been added to it than ever.
