The iPhone 8 is the successor to the iPhone 7 – sticking to the same form factor recipe, but introducing upgrades on the hardware front, including camera improvements, a screen featuring Apple’s True Tone technology, and a new, faster Apple A11 Bionic system chip. Just like the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus sticks to a familiar form factor, with water resistance and built-in stereo speakers, but replaces the metal housing with a glass back to enable wireless charging. It brings along a new, faster Apple A11 Bionic system chip and a display supporting Apple’s True Tone display technology. The dual camera at the back now shoots 4K video at up to 60fps and takes portraits with studio lighting effects. Users can rely on that iPhone 8 (Plus) should work better as our media center. Just name one of it, playing AVCHD video on new iiPhone 8 (Plus).
