Qi is a wireless charging standard which is now starting to receive wide adoption in public places including hotels, airports and coffee shops. This means you can simply place your phone on to the charger wherever you are and keep the power topped up. Various manufacturers in particular car makers are also including this technology.
Apple’s elegant solution which enables wireless charging through a glass back cover brings this technology to a wider audience. Meaning iPhone users no longer have to worry about connecting cables.
This is due to be further enhanced with the introduction of AirPower, which will enable you to charge multiple Apple products on the same wireless charging mat.
Games and apps will now be able to offer a new reality with enhanced AR technology. The combination of hardware and software makes it possible to create a 3D landscape you can move around and see from various angles.It's splash and water resistant. Now splashes should no more be a problem.
Locking and unlocking your phone is quicker and easier than before.
Apple Pay is a safer way to pay as Apple never shares your card details with merchants.
The camera now features optical image stabilisation and an ƒ/1.8 aperture. The featured six element lens makes shooting photos and videos in low light and the final result very impressive.
The Optical Image Stabilisation basically reduces blur in your pictures associated with motion and shake. Using the sensor you can counteract even the tiniest moments so that it allows for up to 3x longer exposure as compared to the iPhone 6S. The iPhone 8 Plus features a 12-Megapixel camera with 4K video recording, auto focus, auto exposure, and auto white balance.
The iPhone 8 Plus has a new processor built-in. It's up to two times faster than the iPhone 7. It also consumes less power, which has an impact on the improved battery life.
