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 most durable glass ever in an iPhone.
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.
Resists water, splashes and dust.
iPhone 8 is precision-engineered at the microscopic level to protect against water, splashes and dust.
Wireless charging for a wireless world.*
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.
Louder, more dynamic stereo speakers.
iPhone 8 features redesigned stereo speakers that are up to 25 per cent louder and deliver deeper bass. Crank up the volume and enjoy richer-sounding music, videos and speakerphone calls.
Advanced security at your fingertip.
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. For a more comfortable viewing experience.
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.
Apple's best colour accuracy ever.
Lifelike colours and high contrast make everything you look at — photos, films, games, news — crisp and captivating. With a wide colour gamut and Apple's 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.
iPhone 8 Camera
The wide-angle camera on iPhone 8 is the same one found in iPhone 8 Plus — featuring an ƒ/1.8 six-element lens, optical image stabilisation, and a larger, faster 12MP sensor.
New advanced ISP. Photo ops, optimised.
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.
Front-facing camera. Focus on yourself.
With Retina Flash, wide colour capture, advanced pixel technology and auto image stabilisation, the 7MP FaceTime HD camera shoots selfies that stand out.
New filters. Better flash. More fun.
From the moment you capture a photo to your final edit, iPhone 8 makes it even easier to create spectacular shots. And next-generation HEIF compression technology lets you take new photos with the same quality as before at half the file size. So snap away.
Videos that belong on the big screen.
Whether you’re a proud parent, a film student or a working director, iPhone 8 lets you shoot phenomenal movies. An Apple-designed video encoder performs real‑time image processing for optimal quality. And with HEVC compression, you’ll get the same video quality as before at half the file size.
• 4K video up to 60 fps
• Slo-mo 1080p up to 240 fps
• Time-lapse video
Advanced video stabilisation uses a new, larger sensor and the powerful ISP to stabilise everything you’re shooting. And optical image stabilisation is designed to reduce motion blur and handshake in low-light videos. So your movies look steady even if your hand isn’t.
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.
Engineered for efficiency.
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.
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.
Our most advanced mobile operating system yet.
iOS brings iPhone to life in incredibly personal and powerful ways. The interface is beautiful and easy to use. Intelligent suggestions appear just when you need them. And advanced technologies protect your privacy and security. Once you’ve experienced iOS, you’ll understand why so many people love using iPhone.
