Of course, the event’s big draw was the iPhone, and we did not leave disappointed. Apple announced three new iPhone models—the
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which are the follow-up phones to last year’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus—and the futuristic iPhone X.
The 4.7-inch iPhone 8 still features the Home button, body bezels, Touch ID, Lightning port, and an LCD screen, but has some improvements, too. Namely: a glass back (like the iPhone 4!), wireless charging using the Qi standard, a TrueTone Retina display, and an A11 Bionic chip.
The iPhone 8 is available in silver, space gray, and gold, and goes on sale Friday, September 22 for $699 for 64GB, with a 256GB option too. Preorders begin this Friday, September 15.
