When will the new iPhone 8 be released in the UK, and how different will it be from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus? (Or will the next generation of Apple smartphones be called the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus?) And what tech specs and new features should we expect from Apple’s new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus?
The iPhone 8 rumour mill is heating up, a month after the launch of the iPhone 7. Apple unveiled the new iPhone 7 alongside its bigger sibling the iPhone 7 Plus during a special event on 7 September, but we’re already looking ahead to the next generation. In this article we round up all the rumours about the iPhone 8: the iPhone 8′s UK release date (and onsale date), iPhone 8 UK price, iPhone 8 specs and new features. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started.
For advice on the current iPhone range, read our iPhone buying guide and best cheap iPhone deals UK. Or, if you’d like to look even further into the future (covering tech developments that come perilously close to the realms of science-fiction), read iPhone 9 and beyond: From graphene to motion charging.
Many of us have pointed out that this ‘tick-tock’ system is a risky policy, tacitly acknowledging that iPhone generations alternate between major and minor updates – to be especially harsh, you could say worthwhile and superfluous updates. When the average user hears that the new iPhone hasn’t even been considered worthy of a full version number upgrade, they’ll be put off from spending money on the new offering. Not to mention that an S update is more confusing for buyers: iPhone 6 followed by iPhone 7 would have been clear and easy to understand; but it’s less obvious which out of the iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus and 6s Plus is the more advanced model.
The iPhone 8 might still be months away from release, but latest reports suggest it’s shaping up as one of the most impressive smartphones to date.
The phone that will mark 10 years of Apple handsets, the iPhone 8 will reportedly play host to everything from a curved glass body to improved cameras.
Now, new information is emerging around the phone, suggesting it could answer one of the biggest smartphone problems today – battery life.
