An updated look and a whole new iPhone experience – #HelloiPhone8

The iPhone 8 brings with it an impressive array of new design features like the all-new glass casing, improved camera capabilities, wireless charging and powerful performance enhancements with the new A11 chip.

It’s an entirely new iPhone experience and it’s right here at iStore.

This is why we can’t get enough of it.

Sophisticated design

iPhone 8 is a stunning combination of advanced design features and sophisticated aesthetics. The new all-glass design, on the front as well as the back, is made from durable glass and reinforced by an aerospace‑grade aluminum band and metal substructure. Because it’s water resist there’s no need to panic when you need to make that urgent call while it’s raining. The outer case also has a special coating so that you can easily remove those smudges and fingerprints.

Apple also introduced the new AirPower mat with iPhone 8. This neat accessory is a mat that you can place your new iPhone 8 on (and other compatible devices like you Apple Watch and Airpods) and it will charge it through the glass back, making your iPhone charging entirely cable free. Prefer old school cables? You will still be able to charge your device as you normally would have as the cable comes with iPhone 8, AirPower is sold separately.

If you love your music, you’ll be excited to know that with iPhone 8, the stereo speakers now play up to 25% louder with an even deeper bass. So you can really push the limits when listening to your favourite tunes, watching videos or making video calls.

Thanks to iOS 11, you can also get a glimpse into what all of your friends are listening to and  sneak a peek at the playlists they have curated by viewing their personal profiles. Find your favourite song and crank it up on the new and improved stereo speakers built into iPhone 8.

Beautiful display

Thanks to True Tone technology, the Retina HD Display on the new iPhone 8 is more gorgeous than ever! True Tone senses the light and automatically adjusts the white balance on your image to match the light that is around you making the screen look and feel more natural. Ultimately, what this does is give you a viewing experience that is less of a strain on your eyes because it looks more like a printed page than a screen. The colours on your iPhone 8 are also beautifully richer with the new, wider colour gamut.

If you like catching up on the latest news on your iPhone, then True Tone on iPhone 8 is going to make reading those interesting news stories a whole lot easier on the eyes. In addition, with iOS 11 you’ll only see the top stories that are most relevant to you and also have the option of browsing through topics that Apple’s editors carefully create for you on a daily basis.

Advanced Camera

The Camera on iPhone 8 is an indulgence of new features and advanced technology that will get even the most mature adult squealing with delight. If you thought you loved the camera capabilities on your current iPhone, then get ready for a whole new set of exciting possibilities. The iPhone 8 Camera comes with a more advanced 12MP camera that has a larger, faster sensor, new colour filters, deeper pixels and an optical image stabilization for photos and videos. This means that it’s now really easy for you to experiment with all kinds of advanced photographic techniques and produce incredible photos and videos.

Portrait mode also has sharper foregrounds, more blurred backgrounds and better performance in low light settings. There is also a host of new filters that come with iOS 11 that make your portraits look like something out of a magazine! This feature is so cool that we couldn’t help ourselves from revealing the juicy details but please note that it is only available on iPhone 8 Plus and up.

Optimal video quality

Video capture on your iPhone 8 is better than ever before! Enhanced stabilisation, faster video frame rates and real-time image and motion analysis are all a result of the new image signal processor and video encoder that comes with the new iPhone 8. The image and motion analysis that is done in real-time means that your video has optimal quality. And along with a new advanced compression technology, your videos will be the same quality as before but half the size.

Why not take advantage of iPhone 8’s improved Camera by exploring the new video Time Lapse feature on iOS 11? You’ll be able to capture all kinds of time and movement elements that you never could before. 

High performance

iPhone 8 comes with the most powerful and smartest chip ever used in a smartphone. Its called the six-core A11 Bionic chip. What this means is that the iPhone 8 has a much faster CPU of up to 30%. It also utilizes the power more efficiently, so you have more power but for the same amount of battery life.

With all of this enhanced performance capability and the improved camera on your iPhone 8, Augmented Reality just became, well, a reality! This functionality has opened the door wide for developers to start creating an array of games and apps that reach new heights in terms of fluid and realistic graphics on your iPhone 8.

Let’s recap!
