Not long after the introduction of its new iPhones, Apple has now started selling refurbished units of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. These certified refurbished models are available for purchase through the company’s online store for the first time. Both models can be purchased with the 64GB storage configuration in multiple color options.
When the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were launched, it’s safe to say that things did not look too good in terms of sales, where we were hearing many reports about lukewarm responses to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It was speculated that this is because many were waiting for the iPhone X to be released, thus holding back on purchasing the iPhone 8 instead.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were released towards the later part of September, and the iPhone X was released in early November, which means that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus had more than a month advantage compared to the iPhone X in terms of sales, but it seems that earlier reports of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus not selling so well could be true.
Our smartphone cameras have come a long way from back in the day where the maximum resolution they captured was VGA, and where it was more of a novelty to use the camera feature rather than functionality. However looking at today’s cameras, it is clear that technology has evolved immensely.
With the Google Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8 having just been launched, we’re sure many are wondering which phone is “faster”. The good news is that you won’t have to wonder anymore because the folks at PhoneBuff have recently published a speed test comparison between both phones.
If recent reports are to be believed, the iPhone 8 isn’t selling as well as many would have expected. Some suggest it’s due to the fact that many customers are simply waiting for the iPhone X to arrive. They’d rather spend their money on Apple’s brand new flagship than the iPhone 8. According to a new report, Apple has now decided to cut iPhone 8 production orders by half.
It hasn’t been that long since the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were launched and already we’re hearing rumors about Apple’s 2018 iPhones. It’s now being claimed that the iPhone 8 successor is not going to have a Home button. That also means Touch ID will not be present on next year’s iPhones. This could pave the way for Face ID to land on handsets other than the iPhone […]
The iPhone X was unveiled by Apple a couple of weeks ago alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Customers will have to wait until next month to get their hands on one. Since no one has been able to get it so far, it wasn’t known what the retail box design of the iPhone X was. The guesswork ends today as Apple has itself shared the handset’s retail […]
Apple is rolling out a new iOS update which brings a fix for the annoying iPhone 8 crackling earpiece issue. This issue was first reported about a week ago.

Are you facing the iPhone 8 earpiece crackling issue as well? If you are, then you won’t have to put up with it for much longer. Apple has confirmed that this issue exists and that it’s working on a fix. It has acknowledged that the earpiece crackling issue has been reported in “a small number of cases,” and that a fix will be out soon.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have a glass back. While it looks great, it is glass after all, which means that it’s susceptible to breakage. Those who have paid for an AppleCare+ plan for the iPhone will have to pay $29 to replace the screen if they ever break it. However, customers have to keep in mind that the iPhone 8 glass back replacement is actually more expensive […]
It appears that the iPhone 8 isn’t just smoking the competition as far as benchmarks are concerned. Camera reference publication DxOMark tests a lot of smartphone cameras and they’ve now but the new iPhones through their paces. DxOMark states that the iPhone 8 has the “best smartphone camera” that it has ever tested.
Amid reports that iPhone 8 pre-orders are lower than the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6, Apple CEO Tim Cook says that the company has sold out of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in some stores. He mentions that the Series 3 Apple Watch with LTE has also been sold out “in so many places” across the globe. Overall, Tim Cook appears to be thrilled with the response from […]
