Last week, Apple announced three new iPhones; the 8, 8 Plus and X in their brand-new headquarters called Apple Park. If you are confused how these new phones are different from each other, as well as, the current iPhone 7, I will do my best to unravel any mysteries about these phones for you in this blog post.
This phone has the following features:
- Glass over metal backs which help with improved radio signals and allows for wireless charging of the unit
- Larger 12 MP camera and captures 83% more light than the iPhone 7
- True Tone technology, an automated color corrector for the iPhone when in dimmer settings.
- A11 Bionic processor which has six cores -- two high-performance cores (25% faster than the ones in the iPhone 7) and four high-efficiency cores (70% faster than the iPhone 7), and for the first time, all six cores can be used simultaneously.
- Available in 64, 128 and 256GB storage, dropping the 32GB option
- Works well with the ARKit integrated in iOS 11
- Stereo speakers that are 25% louder than previous iPhone models
- iOS 11 is preinstalled
iPhone 8 Plus
This phone offers everything the iPhone 8 does plus:
- Dual 12 MP cameras with optical telephoto zoom lens
- Portrait Lighting which uses machine learning to create a depth map of a person’s face and adjust the lighting automatically
- Bigger battery for improved life between charges
This phone is meant to designate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and has the most change integrated into the design. It has many of the 8 and 8 plus features, but has these two models beat in terms of the screen attributes, color display and resolution, and sign-in capabilities.
The X’s new design includes:
- a borderless, OLED screen that has Dolby Vision and HDR 10 capabilities. HDR preserves the gradation from dark to light in ways that SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) cannot.
- Super Retina display with 2,436 x 1,135-pixel resolution which is a 40% resolution improvement over previous iPhones, including the 8 models
- Facial recognition technology, thus relieving the end user’s need to remember a passcode and can allow them to make payments through Face ID
- No home button
Which iPhone Will Meet Your Needs?
Now that you have all the pertinent facts, which iPhone will best serve your corporate or event needs?
While the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are available now, the iPhone X will not be available until November 3rd, leaving many tech bloggers and magazine editors saying everyone should wait and procure the X.
However, the X has a steep price point compared to the other models, so the question boils down to how you will be using these iPhones. Here is my quick analysis, from a business prospective:
The iPhone 8 will serve you well if you interested in speed, storage and signals. It has a smaller footprint compared to the other models and is positioned well for AR applications and other AI features coming down the pipe in coming months.
The iPhone 8 Plus is great for someone who needs a larger screen, takes many photographs and is interested in a long battery life. These are the major advantages over the 8.
The iPhone X has all of the above in terms of speed, storage, signals, camera, AR and long battery life but it has completely different screen technology and is using facial recognition in a cutting-edge way.
