iPhone 8: What’s new? Should you upgrade?

During Apple’s keynote event on Sept. 12, 2017, the company introduced to the world three new phones (iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X). The new design of glass and aluminum around the screen, Retina HD display, and new bionic A1 chip are just a few of the highlighted features on the iPhone.

Technology’s pace is rapid and changing by the day; it can be hard to keep up. It can also be quite difficult to make the decision on whether upgrading is worth it at the end of the day. Breaking down what you want and what you need can become the main factor. You want to know if you’re getting your money’s worth. The following will help you with your decision, of whether to upgrade or stick with what you currently have.

iPhone 8: What's new - should you upgrade?

iPhone 8’s design is a bit wider and taller than its predecessor. 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.33mm frame brings also a thicker look. The phone is also heavier than the iPhone 7. Weighing in at 148g, these specs bring in enough weight, height, and width for you to have to get a new phone case; the case for the 7 won’t cut it.

Silver, space grey and a gold color (new) make up the colors for the new phone and bring a new full glass rear. The frame is aerospace-grade aluminum. Apple is also saying that this is the most durable glass on an iPhone ever.

Along with the new Touch ID fingerprint scanner, the 8 brings new sound quality. In comparison to the 7, the speakers are 25% louder and the bass is enriched and deeper. But just like the 7, the 8 will not have a headphone jack.
