iPhone 8 Release Date, News and Rumors
Apple is no stranger to legal actions being brought against it, and now it’s seeing it all over again due to the cameras in recent iPhones.
Best Buy’s tradition of tacking on a $100 premium for some phones it sells without a connected carrier plan has run aground, with the big box retailer pulling the plug on the option.
The new iPhone X is clearly the elephant in the room. But the new “classic” iPhones are still a great upgrade. They come with a new all glass back that feels great in hand and enables wireless charging. And while it’s still a 12 MP sensor, the camera on the iPhone 8 Plus is clear upgrade over iPhone 7 Plus thanks to new features like Portrait Lighting and the new, professional level slow sync flash.
It’s been a little over a month since the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were made available in several countries. Each year, Apple’s handsets usually draw out huge crowds that stand in line for hours, if not days, to get their hands on the latest iPhone.
Apple has shared two new videos on its YouTube channel today which highlight and guide iPhone 8 Plus users on how to use Portrait Lighting mode and Portrait Lighting effects on the handset.
Data gathered by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) suggests that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus combined only accounted for 16% of all iPhone sales in the previous quarter. In comparison, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus accounted for 58% of the sales in the same period.
When you close an app on your iPhone, it will remain open in the background, but most of its activities will be paused till the next time you open it. If there are background tasks that need to be completed, the app will continue to execute them until needed, such as Location Services, VoIP calls, and so on.
Apple finally introduced the fast charging feature in iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, a feature that has been available on Android smartphones for quite some time.
The iPhone has progressed in small, and giant, ways over the years. And of course, design had to change over the years, especially as Apple aimed to make things thinner and, eventually, bigger.
