Back in 2007, the iPhone made its debut – 10 years later, we’ve seen the 8 th iteration of this world-shaking device, which bears the same revolutionary spirit. Naturally, of course, that means we’ve been getting a slew of iPhone repair jobs to coincide with the launch.
Imzi Communications have been doing our homework on the ins, outs and functionality of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, so let us give you an insight into the key features of the new release…
‘Goodbye’ home button, ‘hello’ bigger screen. Phone manufacturer LG took the lead in 2017 with a screen that covers the entire face of the device. To do so, they had to lose the home button, and Apple – refusing to be outdone – has followed suit.
The iPhone 8 boasts a 4.5”, 5.5” or 5.8” Super AMOLED screen that eschews any physical control unit. OLEDs, unlike LEDs, don’t rely on backlighting; therefore, they produce their own light source, and don’t drain your power quite as vigorously. Facial recognition technology.
Countless years of iPhone repair have directed us to complaints about broken fingerprint sensors and the like – essentially, any function that’s designed to aid our phone security When these are damaged, the remedy can be extensive, but Apple are skirting thumb scanners with the iPhone 8. Instead, you can now unlock the device via sophisticated
Longer battery life (at last!) It’s incredibly frustrating when our smartphones don’t last over five or six hours before they need a recharge. To fight against the battery red zone, iPhone 8s are being fitted with a 10nm processing chip. ‘Nm’ stands for the manufacturing processes used in its creation: the lower the number, the tighter its transistors are packed side-by- side, enabling the phone to handle more activity at any one time. This boosts the efficiency and battery life of your device. Wireless charging for premium models
Speaking of powering up, Apple have been under fire for the last year or so as buyers have begun to clamour for wireless charging. The new iPhone 8 and iPhone X addresses this issue with glass-backed models that can detect a wireless charge signal.
Apple fans will be reminded of the iPhone 4s, which had a similar build – the difference here is that the iPhone 8 and iPhone X may pave the way for 100% glass construction in a few years. It’s also worth pointing out – from an iPhone repair perspective – that glass is tougher to scratch or mark with regular use.
