So, for the first time in a long time, Apple has announced two completely different iPhone models. The iPhone 8/8 Plus is quite similar to the iPhone 7/7 Plus, but it has a glass back, better cameras, a faster processor and the ability to wirelessly charge.
The iPhone X on the other end of the scale is a completely new device. It has a Super OLED screen which pretty much goes from end to end. It has no home button (which appears to be a positive), face scanning (which Apple is calling Face ID), animated emojis and is not much bigger than the iPhone 8 but has a screen that’s larger than an iPhone 8 Plus.
This is sure to create confusion for consumers. On one hand, you can get the iPhone 8/8 Plus next week (for cheaper) but it’s definitely not a revolutionary device. On the other, you can get a brand new future proof device in the iPhone X, but it doesn’t release until November and it’s quite expensive. For the X, you’re looking at roughly $500 more than an iPhone 8 and $250 more than an 8 Plus.
