In September 2017, the iPhone 8 (alongside the larger iPhone 8 Plus and the much-anticipated iPhone X) was launched upon the eager public. On the surface, the iPhone 8 looked very similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 7, apart from having a glass back rather than an all-metal construction. In fact, all three new iPhones had similarly enhanced internal features, including improved cameras, faster processors and the ability to be charged by induction (hence the glass back). Retaining a similar Retina HD display to the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 display now incorporated True Tone technology – this technology makes automatic adjustments to the screen brightness, depending on the surrounding ambient light.
The iPhone 8 was fitted with the Apple A11 Bionic chipset, a processor that was claimed to be less power-hungry but considerably faster (up to 70%), and a graphics processing segment that was said to be up to 30% faster than the iPhone 7. Despite having similar design features to the iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 was praised for the convenience of induction charging, users appreciated the improved operating speeds, and the glass back was said to have improved the handling of the device, making it less slippery to hold than all-metal constructed iPhones.
As iPhones continue to gain extra features, technological ability and faster operation, the one thing that doesn’t really change is how vulnerable they can be to damage. The glass back on the iPhone 8 looks smooth, makes it easier to hold, and allows induction charging, but it is still glass, and therefore it can get cracked, scratched or broken.
