Only 30 people line up for iPhone 8 at the Sydney Apple Store

1 month ago   |   By Phone Arena

Traditionally, the launch of the latest new iPhone models has hundreds of people lined up in front of the Sydney Apple Store. While the ability to pre-order the handsets online has resulted in smaller gatherings in Sydney, today's launch of the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus has resulted in a new all-time low. Only 30 people made up the small line that was patiently waiting outside the store, hoping for the doors to open.
While the line might have been shorter, the passion and desire of those waiting was just the same as seen in previous years. Take Mazen Kourouche. He happened ...

The iPhone 8 back glass is more expensive to fix than the screen

The iPhone 8 back glass is more expensive to fix than the screen

1 month ago   |   By The Verge

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus' most obvious design change is the switch to a glossy, glass back. There was a chance this glass would be priced at or around the same price as a cracked screen under AppleCare+, but that's apparently not the case: AppleInsider confirmed today that a broken back won't qualify for a $29 screen replacement. It'll instead be subject to an "other damage" fee of $99 .
Apple gives users two screen replacements and two miscellaneous damage incidents at the $29 and $99 price respectively. After that point, the damage price jumps to $349 for the iPhone 8, and $399 for the...

It might've seemed like this day would never come, but it's finally here: Apple has released the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus! Apple's tenth-anniversary iPhone lineup is far and away the best smartphone lineup the world has ever seen.

Apple is falling on the first day the iPhone 8 is being sold

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

Shares of Apple are down 1.69% to trade at $150.95 on the first day of availability for the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
Shares have been falling since the company announced several new products, including the iPhone X, on September 12. Shares are down about 7.07%, or $11.91, since the market opened on the day of the launch event. That fall is equivalent to about $61 billion in value lost since the announcement.
Friday marks the first day the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are available for sale. The flagship iPhone X was likely delayed due to component supply constraints and is set to be released on...

IPhone 8 is seeing some tiny launch day lines

1 month ago   |   By The Verge

Apple Stores are usually faced with intimidatingly long lines on the morning of a new iPhone launch, but that largely didn't seem to the case today. As various reports and queuers have pointed out, some Apple Stores have very short lines out front for the iPhone 8 , if they have anyone at all.
Reuters said that there were fewer than 30 people at Apple's Sydney store, which usually has hundreds out front. And it described a “less lively mood in Asia” than for previous launches.
In Pasadena, California, ABC7reporter Chelsea Edwards posted a photo from outside of an Apple Store with no one in...

IPhone 8 doesn't scratch and bend easily, and isn't too hard to repair

Available to buy starting today , Apple's iPhone 8 looks a lot like the iPhone 7, but it's upgraded in many ways. Design-wise, the new iPhone ditches the all-metal unibody construction of the iPhone 7 in favor of a metal + glass construction (Apple says this is "the most durable glass ever in a smartphone"). Thanks to this new design, the iPhone 8 has glass on the front and back, while its main chassis is made out of aerospace-grade 7000 Series aluminum.
But is the iPhone 8 as durable as the iPhone 7? Well, reliable phone tester JerryRigEverything ...

Apple has done a horrible job advertising the iPhone 8

1 month ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

Let's say you have an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 6s, what are the benefits of upgrading to the iPhone 8? It's an important question that Apple has curiously and clumsily failed to answer. Sure, tech heads who intently watched Apple's keynote last week can spout off specs for days, but the case for upgrading to the iPhone 8 for the regular iPhone user is unusually murky. Now this isn't to say that the iPhone 8 isn't a worthy upgrade, but rather that Apple has done incredibly underwhelming job of informing the masses why the iPhone 8 is a worthy successor to the iPhone 7.

With these iFixit teardowns, Apple products seem to be something of a mixed bag - while the iPad line can be notoriously hard to repair through DIY methods, the iPhone teardowns usually net middling-to-good review scores.

Today's the day that the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are in stores across the world. The iPhone 8 isn't the exciting new Apple product this fall - that honor is reserved for the forthcoming iPhone X - but it is the new, mainstream iPhone that millions of people will be buying this year and next.
You already know what the iPhone 8 looks like - it's just like the last three generations of iPhones, but with a glass back. That glass back enables one new feature, wireless charging, and it makes the phone a little more comfortable to hold and a lot less slippery than its predecessors...
