Apple iPhone 8 release TODAY - New features, best price and where to buy REVEALED

You may be out of luck then - while Apple may well be planning an even larger iPhone X, rumored plans for a smaller 2018 edition have now been shelved.

The iPhone is still not indestructible, but that seems unlikely to stop millions of fans from buying the latest, That also means the world will continue to be filled with millions more countless iPhone cases. The tech giant just asked its components suppliers to slow down deliveries. It's not quite clear why Apple chose to slow things down but there are some theories that make sense.

All things considered, the awful news transformed into a far more detestable piece when it was uncovered today that the glass back will cost much more to fix than the front (more than 3 times).

Tom's Guide also ran comparison tests between the Galaxy Note 8, S8 Plus and iPhone 8. "While not available in all countries, most users have pre-ordered the GPS + Cellular version because it offers phone and internet access functions without an iPhone and given the low premium of $70 over the GPS version", the analyst predicted. The wireless charging in the new iPhones uses a standard called Qi, the same that is also used by Samsung Electronics. Cook in a segment with ABC's Good Morning America had justified the $999 USA pricing saying the iPhone X ( Ten)'s price is a value price and that users are paying for all the technology included in the phone.

Of course, for this sum, customers will get one of the most modern smartphones of the year.

The iPhone X has no home button, instead, the company uses swipe gestures for multitasking.

When Apple unveiled the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X earlier this month, it was immediately obvious which device had captured the public's imagination. It comprises of an Apple A11 Bionic processor, a Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, Skyworks SkyOne SKY78140, Avago 8072JD130, NXP 80V18 secure NFC module on the front.

Apple iPhone X comes in two storage variants, 64GB and 256GB. But they were encouraged to set up appointments at Apple stores. The manufacturers have shipped only 40% of the components for the unit, according to DigiTimes.
