The 10th-anniversary version of the iPhone was finally announced yesterday. Known as the iPhone X, the features available on the phone is a testament of Apple’s innovation over the years.

Apple has Released the iPhone X but Skipped the 9

07 February 2018

After Apple unveiled its three latest devices – the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the iPhone X, many fans have noticed that a number is missing. So, where’s the iPhone 9? With that, Apple does seem to have skipped a device, which is similar to how Microsoft skipped launching its Windows 9. If Apple wanted to maintain the proper number progression and mark its 10th anniversary of iPhone, then they would have had to unveil 3 new iPhone devices this month – iPhone 8, 9, and the X.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus can be the biggest game-changing smartphone in Apple's history

iPhone 8 Frequently Asked Questions

What are the features of this Apple phone?

The iPhone 8 series comes with virtually perfect handsets that enable users to make calls, play games, take pictures, watch movies, but it does everything better than ever before. Apple has set the standards for phones and has outdone itself once again with this model. Although this iPhone comes with a premium price, the features it offers more than makeup for the amount you need to pay for it.

Durable Chassis

The iPhone 8 is slightly bigger than its predecessors but close enough that iPhone 7 cases fit perfectly. The big change is that the aluminium exterior on the back has given way to a glass chassis, making it slightly heavier for wireless charging. Not only is this iPhone heavier, but it’s also more durable; it’s even believed to have the most robust chassis among all iPhones. Its compact and comfortable size allows you to slip it into your pockets easily, making it one of the best handsets on the market for convenient one-handed operation. As for the sim card slot, like with the rest of the series, it only has one.

Improved display

Although this iPhone comes with the traditional 4.7-inch display like its predecessors, it boasts a major upgrade with its True Tone technology which is designed to tweak the look based on the lighting of your environment to ensure colours are consistent. Also, the smartphone’s display is bright, legible in a variety of lighting conditions, and probably the best IPS LCD display around for an iPhone with the brand's signature Retina HD Display. With that, you will be comfortable to read on for long periods, watch movies, and play games with clearer and crisper visuals.

Powerful Hardware

This model is packing some serious cutting-edge hardware under the hood. Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip is incredibly fast. It combines two high-performance cores with four high-efficiency cores and has an Apple-designed GPU inside. With that, the device is slick and speedy when navigating and running apps and games.

Packed with Impressive Software

Just as Apple brings improvements to this iPhone's familiar design, so does its latest software update, iOS 11. One of the biggest additions to its operating system comes via ARKit, which is a developer framework for augmented-reality (AR) apps and games. With AR, your iPhone’s camera can overlay game elements on furniture such as a table on your living room floor.

How much is the Apple iPhone 8 price in Malaysia?

The iPhone 8 price in Malaysia starts from RM2,199 for a 64GB model in space grey, silver, and gold colour. This iPhone comes in 2 storage variants - 64GB and 256GB for you to choose from with the 128GB ranging from RM2,399 in Malaysia.

How much is the iPhone 8s Plus?

The iPhone 8 Plus is the model's higher-end sibling which can cost up to RM2,699 for a 64GB model and RM2,899 for 128GB in space grey and gold colour. Both phones are water-resistant and have the same A11 Bionic chipset. What makes this model different from the iPhone 8 is its display as well as the camera: the iPhone 8 has a single-lens shooter while the iPhone 8s Plus has double-lens.

Does iPhone 8 have a headphone jack?

Ever since the iPhone 7, Apple stopped featuring the headphone jack on their subsequent iPhone releases. The iPhone 8 does not have a headphone jack, it comes with EarPods with a lightning connector instead. It also comes with a lightning-to-3.5 millimetre headphone jack adaptors that are compatible with older EarPods and non-Apple pairs of earphones.

Is Apple still making this model?

Since the iPhone 8 release date was on September 22, 2017, this model still has specs that are still relevant. However, it is considered as an older model having been replaced by the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro as the brand's flagship phones.

What is in the box for iPhone 8?

If you purchase the iPhone 8 Malaysia, what you will get from the box are the following:

  1. Your iPhone
  2. Earpods with lightning cable
  3. Lightning to USB cable
  4. 5W USB Power adapter (Malaysia plug)

Is the iPhone 8 water-resistant?

The iPhone 8 has a water-resistant rating of IP67 meaning it can be submerged for 30 minutes at 1.5 meters of fresh water. This rating also makes this phone dust and weatherproof. Although this model is water-resistant, it is not waterproof so it’s not recommended to expose your phone to water for longer than 30 minutes.

Is the iPhone 8 cheaper in Malaysia?

Compared to Singapore or Indonesia, the price of an iPhone is relatively cheaper in Malaysia. If you’re looking to buy an iPhone 8, chances are you can find a new or secondhand iPhone 8 set at a much cheaper price.

Is it worth it to get the iPhone 8 in 2020?

With the release of the iPhone 11 series and the iPhone SE 2020, the price for the iPhone 8 should be lower than when it was first released. The iPhone 8 makes a great budget purchase if you want to upgrade to an iPhone or if you need a secondary phone with sufficient specifications. However, the iPhone SE 2020 is a great affordable option and it comes with all the latest features that new generation iPhones have.
