As the rollout for iPhone 8 continues, Apple also released the latest update to its operating system, iOS 11. The new operating system promises new features and the updated cameras may provide the best experience for users. Apple has been criticized for some of its releases, especially the standards since the new charging system promises a slower charge. Users can expect new accessories although it is expected that there may not be enough phones available until Christmas so that users can upgrade.

iPhone 8 vs. the iPhone X

The Independent UK reported that there were nine reasons to buy the iPhone 8 instead of the iPhone X.

The biggest reason, of course, is price since the iPhone X is priced higher and some of the technology is the same. The same brains power both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as the iPhone X which means that they're all powered by Apple's new A11 Bionic chip. The functionality is the same. While iPhone 8 comes with Touch ID, which is proven, the facial recognition used by the iPhone X is not. All three phones support both super-fast charging and wireless charging. Both the 8 and the X also have nearly identical rear cameras as well.

Forbes reported that both the version 8 and 8 Plus of the smartphone had the best camera ever. This came from the benchmarking gurus at DxO. The 8 Plus received a score of 94 edging out the 8 model.

Both cameras scored higher than the Google Pixel and the HTC11. With the latest release, both phones received major photo quality upgrades. DxOMark separates the camera performance when taking photos and videos to determine their results. Although both phones delivered high-quality video output, it was their image output that set the two cameras above the competition.

Although Google hasn't announced it, the Pixel 2 is expected to go head to head with the iPhone 8 as an Android alternative to the smartphone.

Tips and tricks for iOS 11

The Verge announced that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus offered a lot of new features under the hood including the iOS 11. The new operating system offers a new Control Center.

This represents a huge change for the smartphone, and it has been fully overhauled with a new design. Instead of having the old multipane system everything is located in one central location. Customers finally have the option of customization for the Control Center, a feature that users have waited years to have. The new menu now has two halves that include wireless connectivity settings, music controls, volume and brightness sliders, the AirPlay menu, and toggles for rotation lock and do not disturb mode. Users will find the customization items in the bottom part.
