iPhone 8 Release Date, News and Rumors
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus might not look as attractive as the iPhone X but handsets pack largely the same specifications and features as Apple’s more premium iPhone. If you are looking to get your hands on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus but want to go through their detailed spec sheet, we have you covered.
With a glass front and back, the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sure look stunning. Apple has managed to redesign every aspect of the handsets while still retaining that familiar iPhone-like design with its latest handsets.

Apple Announces iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with Glass Design, A11 Bionic Chip, and Wireless Charging
Apple today unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus — the successor to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from last year — featuring an all-glass design, upgraded internals, and plenty of new features.
Less than an hour before the September 12th iPhone event, iPhone X Geekbench scores have leaked. And they’re a doozy. iPhones have always crushed the competition when it came to raw CPU performance but it looks like the new iPhone is going to leapfrog not just the competition but even pro laptops when it comes to sheer numbers.
The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are going to feature wireless charging but Apple’s own wireless charger for these devices is not going to be ready for them. As per KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will not be unveiling its own Qi wireless charger at today’s iPhone X event.
Up until last week, Apple had done a pretty good job of keeping the iPhone X and its various features from leaking. The HomePod firmware did provide some details about the iPhone X but compared to the previous few years, the leaks surrounding the handset were very low and dubious.
Alongside the iPhone X, Apple will also be unveiling the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on September 12. The iOS 11 GM leak from over the weekend might have primarily spilled details about the iPhone X, but it also provided us enough data to give us an idea of the specs and features the other two iPhones will pack.
The leaked iOS 11 GM build has provided plenty of details about the iPhone 8 and its various features. Now, another post from 9to5Mac details how Face ID on the handset will be setup.
