• Why some customers are buying iPhone 8 instead of iPhone X

    2 monthes ago - By iMore

    There will absolutely be some customers who are ready for something new - iPhone X. But there are other customers who still want something trusted and familiar. And iPhone 8 is here for them now.
    In my iPhone 8 review I point out that Apple just might be offering two new iPhone because the company realizes it just might have two kinds of customers: Those who want a familiar iPhone experience, only better; and those who an all-new iPhone experience. iPhone X will appeal to the latter. iPhone 8, the former.
    I've gotten a lot of feedback on that premise now, and I think it's held up. Here are...

    While Apple did not explicitly mention this feature during the iPhone 8 and iPhone X's announcements, it was later discovered that both phones will support fast-charging, albeit with a caveat. This caveat came in the form of how only using specific chargers that users will be able to take advantage of the feature. However the good news is that if you wanted clearer and more explicit information, the folks at MacRumors have recently stumbled across an Apple support document in which Apple details the chargers that users need for fast charging, as well as what to look out for if you are...

    While facial recognition systems in phones aren't new, Apple's Face ID feature for the iPhone X seems to hold some potential in terms of being a more accurate and foolproof system. It is unclear if it will indeed work as advertised and if it will be better than Touch ID, but for now it seems that feature could be blamed for the iPhone X's slow production. In a note to investors by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as seen by MacRumors , the analyst has suggested that production of the TrueDepth camera is to blame for hindering the production of the iPhone X. He writes, “TrueDepth camera...

    'iPhone SE Plus' Concept Imagines Bezel-Free Compact Device With 4.7-Inch Display

    Apple's iPhone SE, introduced in March of 2016, is the sole device that the company continues to sell in a smaller 4-inch form factor.
    The iPhone SE wasn't updated in September alongside the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, and there are no real rumors hinting at an imminent refresh, but that hasn't stopped designers from Curved.de from imagining what an iPhone SE with an iPhone X makeover might look like.
    Curved.de has mocked up an iPhone SE with the same general form factor as the existing iPhone SE, but with the elimination of the bezels, it has a larger 4.7-inch display.

    According to Apple, the glass used for its new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 devices is the most durable glass ever used in a smartphone, but that hasn't helped the device resist shattering in a series of drop tests.
    SquareTrade, a company that provides extended warranties for electronic devices, conducted drop tests on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and, for comparative purposes, the Galaxy Note 8, which also has a glass body.
    Both of the iPhone 8 models and the Galaxy Note 8 shattered on all sides in every single drop test, including front and back drops at a distance of six feet, a 22-foot shot...
