All eyes on the iPhone
Students have mixed feelings about next generation of upgrades
October 24, 2017
The iPhone 8 is a new and improved iPhone, but does not compare to the new iPhone X.
Starting at $999, the new iPhone X can read its owner’s face and allow the user to use their iPhone.
The iPhone 8 is water-and-dust resistant, and has the most popular and well- liked camera quality in the world. Apple says this iPhone is formed from glass. The available iPhone 8 is $699, and the iPhone 8 Plus is $799.
The iPhone X is an entirely different story. With no home button, and all screen it is a very advanced piece of technology. It has the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, with wireless charging.
Starting at $999, this new iPhone X is the best of the best.
