Apple iPhone 8 teardown by iFixit reveals smaller battery, 2GB RAM

Also, if there are too many people buying the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, there will probably be less to purchase the iPhone X. AppleCare+ costs $129 for the iPhone 8 and $149 for the iPhone 8 Plus, and covers two additional repairs at a lesser price. So in case you shatter your iPhone 8's back (which Apple says is really hard to do) then you may need a complete replacement as the wireless coil will also be affected in the process.

The Apple Watch 3 went on sale last week, and some - including The Verge - promptly complained that the smartwatch was struggling to connect to networks properly.

With a price tag of around $1,000 for the basic model, the iPhone X is the world's most expensive iPhone ever.

What we all have been looking forward to, is knowing the battery on the iPhone 8. And yes, the glass back is pretty, and Apple claims it is, quote, "durable". We've sold out of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in some stores, but we've got good supply there. The iPhone 8 has a f/1.8 6-element lens but there is a bigger sensor with 12-megapixel resolution. The wireless charging in the new iPhones uses a standard called Qi, the same that is also used by Samsung Electronics. The 3D sensing (TrueDepth camera) on iPhone X is composed of a structured-light system, time-of-flight system and a front-facing camera, which represents a far more complex structure than those of rivals.

The iPhone 8 is faster in opening apps faster than its predecessor, being more efficient by opening the Injustice game for example in 11 seconds, unlike the iPhone 7 which opened it in 14.53 seconds and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in 19 seconds.

Apple's newly-launched devices, the iPhone 8, IPhone 8 Plus and IPhone X, do not have the requisite supporting apparatus that enables Android smartphones to use superfast wireless network technology being developed by internet service providers. This proves the fact that even if the iPhone 8 does have the required hardware, it is disabled, not by software, to reach higher network speeds.

The superb performance is largely due to the processing power of Apple's new A11 chipset, a six-core CPU, and a new Apple-designed GPU.

Other than the small chin on the top, the iPhone X is a bezel-less beauty.
