iPhone 8 introduces an all‑new glass design. The world’s most popular camera, now even better. The smartest, most powerful chip ever in an iPhone. Wireless charging that’s truly effortless. And augmented reality experiences never before possible. iPhone 8. A new generation of iPhone.
How do you build an iPhone out of durable glass that also allows for wireless charging? By formulating a new kind of glass. Reinforcing it with a laser‑welded steel foundation and an aerospace‑grade aluminium band. And engineering it down to the micron for water resistance.
The front and back feature custom glass with a 50 per cent deeper strengthening layer. A new steel substructure and a stronger, aerospace‑grade 7000 Series aluminium band provide additional reinforcement. And an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints.
We’ve always intended iPhone to be a truly wireless device, free from charging cables and headphone cords. With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone 8 is designed for a wireless future.
With Touch ID, your fingerprint is your secure password. Use it to instantly unlock your phone and sign in to many of your favourite apps. Touch ID also enables Apple Pay, which lets you pay in shops, within apps and on the web.
Retina HD Display
How do you make a display that’s more aware of the environment around you? By using light-sensing technology and an expansive colour spectrum to make everything on the screen look and feel more natural.
True Tone technology uses an advanced four‑channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the light around you. So images on the display look as natural as on a printed page, reducing eye strain.
Lifelike colours and high contrast make everything you look at — photos, films, games, news — crisp and captivating. With a wide colour gamut and our best colour accuracy ever, your photos will look as vibrant as real life.
How do you improve on the world’s most popular camera? By introducing a new sensor and powering it with A11 Bionic. It makes advanced photographic techniques easy and automatic — so everyone can shoot unbelievable photos and movies. iPhone 8 cameras are also designed for the most immersive and incredible augmented reality experiences.
The intelligent, Apple‑designed image signal processor detects elements in the scene — like people, motion and lighting conditions — to optimise your photos even before you take them. It also delivers advanced pixel processing, wide colour capture, faster autofocus and better HDR photos.
Portrait mode gets even better, with sharper detail, more natural background blurring, improved performance in low light and access to flash when you need it.
Can you create a chip that’s both powerful and intelligent? For iPhone 8 and iPhone X, we did. Meet A11 Bionic, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in an iPhone.
With six cores and 4.3 billion transistors, A11 Bionic has four efficiency cores that are up to 70 per cent faster than the A10 Fusion chip, and two performance cores that are up to 25 per cent faster. The CPU can even harness all six cores simultaneously when you need a turbo boost.
A11 Bionic manages its enormous power intelligently by directing tasks between the performance and efficiency cores. So the things you do most often — like texting and browsing the web — happen quickly while using less energy.
Metal 2 is Apple‑designed graphics software that lets developers build console‑style games. And Core ML enables developers to integrate machine learning into their apps. The GPU in A11 Bionic is optimised for these new, immersive 3D games and AR experiences.
How do you make an iPhone designed for a wireless world? By building on wireless technology like headphones and advanced networking to introduce easy wireless charging. The glass back, together with an efficient charging system, allows you to simply set iPhone 8 down to charge it up.
We wanted people to enjoy the convenience of wireless charging anywhere. So iPhone 8 works with Qi wireless chargers commonly found in hotels, cafés, airports and cars. Belkin and Mophie have also developed two new wireless chargers designed for iPhone 8.
