Did the latest Apple announcement catch your eye? Now that the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X have been unveiled, there’s plenty to think about if you’re deciding which iPhone to go for. So we’re here to help you make the right choice. Scroll down to find out how the key features of the iPhone 7, 8, 8 Plus and X measure up.
Compare the features
Apple are known for creating beautiful phones. Fact. The iPhone X is all screen, so it’s a totally new experience for iPhone users. It features the most durable glass ever in an iPhone, so it’s tough enough to survive the most hectic routine. And it doesn’t have a home button because you can unlock it just by looking at it. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are also formed from glass, but they share the familiar design of previous iPhones, with sleek, curved edges. And they’ve got the round home button that doubles up as a fingerprint reader. iPhone X comes in Silver and Space Gray, whereas the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus come in Gold as well. And there’s even more choice with the iPhone 7, which comes in six colours – including the striking (PRODUCT)RED.
Now for the big news. Wireless charging for a wireless world. If you’re always ending up with frayed cables that you have to replace, this one’s for you. With wireless charging, you just need to pop your phone on a charging station or mat to charge up. The iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus are all compatible. So you can start living the future of wireless, right now.
Always running out of room for your apps and snaps? Good news. The iPhone 7, 8, 8 Plus and X all come in a 256GB variant. So whichever you go for, there’s loads of space to store all the stuff you love. The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X are all powered by the same A11 Bionic chip too – the most powerful and smartest chip ever in an iPhone. iPhone 7 runs off the A10 Fusion Chip, so it still packs a powerful punch. And what about size? Well, the iPhone X has an impressive 5.8 inch display. But it’s still perfectly portable, at just 174g and 7.7mm thick. Fancy one that’s a little smaller? iPhone 8 is the lightest of the new iPhones, at 148g. Or you could go for the iPhone 7, at 138
Apple have taken the world’s most popular camera and made it even better. The iPhone 7 camera is still a winner, but you’ll be amazed by the iPhone X’s 12MP dual cameras. You can take stunning snaps with the improved portrait mode, for sharper foregrounds and more naturally blurred backgrounds. So your smartphone pictures will look more professional than ever. And it’s even got wide-angle and telephoto lenses for optical zoom. The iPhone 8 Plus has all the same features too, so it’s another great option for creating stunning snaps. And the iPhone 8 still has an impressive 12MP front camera with optical image stabilisation.

Apple have raised the bar with all three new iPhones. From new tech like wireless charging, to improved performance powered by the A11 Bionic Chip, it’s a whole new world of iPhone.
