After months of tales and leaks, Apple’s threesome of new iPhones was officially announced today at the company’s new Cupertino, Calif. campus: the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (pronounced “ten”). All three devices share similar features such as running iOS 11 and wireless charging, a first for iPhones.
But Apple made it a point to highlight how the iPhone X, the most expensive of the lineup, differs from other models. For example, the iPhone X has no Home button and instead relies on a new feature called Face ID to unlock the phone with facial recognition.
Read specification chart below to see exactly how these iPhones different from one another.
As Apple’s premium model, the iPhone X costs significantly more than the iPhone 8. The record £999 price tag for the iPhone X has divided consumers. Some say it isn’t too much to pay for a high-end device they will use every day, while others say they will be sticking with Android.
The iPhone 8 costs a more reasonable £699 for the 64GB version, which is £100 more than the entry-level 32GB iPhone 7. Consumers interested in the iPhone 8 Plus will pay the slightly higher price of £799 for the 5.5-inch screen and dual-lens camera.
iPhone usage ratio in the Middle East and African countries:
The research firm said that Apple grew its shipments in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) by 133% in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the year-ago period. The growth comes as more people in MEA countries have transitioned to smartphones and are beginning to upgrade their devices.
