iPhone 8 128GB Gold



Product Description

iPhone 8
A beautiful mind.

iPhone 8 introduces an all‑new glass design. The world's most popular camera, now even better. The smartest, most powerful chip ever in a smartphone. Wireless charging that’s truly effortless. And augmented reality experiences never before possible. iPhone 8. A new generation of iPhone.

An iPhone formed from glass.
The most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back. A color‑matched, aerospace‑grade aluminum band. New space gray, silver, and gold finishes.

Design
How do you build an iPhone out of durable glass that also allows for wireless charging? By formulating a new kind of glass. Reinforcing it with a laser‑welded steel foundation and an aerospace‑grade aluminum band. And engineering it down to the micron for water resistance.

The most durable glass ever in a smartphone.
The front and back feature custom glass with a 50 percent deeper strengthening layer. A new steel substructure and a stronger, aerospace‑grade 7000 Series aluminum band provide additional reinforcement. And an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints.

Three new finishes.
iPhone 8 comes in three new glass finishes: space gray, silver, and gold. A six‑layer ink process allows for precise hues, opacity, and rich depth of color. And the color‑matched aluminum band complements the glass beautifully.

Retina HD Display
How do you make a display that’s more aware of the environment around you? By using light‑sensing technology and an expansive color spectrum to make everything on the screen look and feel more natural.

True Tone.
For a more comfortable viewing
experience.

True Tone technology uses an advanced four‑channel ambient light sensor to subtly adjust the white balance onscreen to match the color temperature of the light around you. So images on the display look as natural as on a printed page, reducing eyestrain.

The best color accuracy in the industry.
Lifelike colors and high contrast make everything you look at — photos, movies, games, news — crisp and captivating. With a wide color gamut and the best color accuracy in the industry, your photos will look as vibrant as real life.

Cameras
How do you improve on the world’s most popular camera? By introducing a new sensor and powering it with A11 Bionic. It makes advanced photographic techniques easy and automatic — so everyone can shoot unbelievable photos and movies. iPhone 8 cameras are also designed for the most immersive and incredible augmented reality experiences.

iPhone 8 Camera
The wide‑angle camera on iPhone 8 is the same one found in iPhone 8 Plus — featuring an ƒ/1.8 six‑element lens, optical image stabilization, and a larger, faster 12MP sensor.

New advanced ISP.
Photo ops, optimized.

The intelligent, Apple‑designed image signal processor detects elements in the scene — like people, motion, and lighting conditions — to optimize your photos even before you take them. It also delivers advanced pixel processing, wide color capture, faster autofocus, and better HDR photos.

Portrait mode.
For a more beautiful depth‑of‑field effect.

Portrait mode gets even better, with sharper detail, more natural background blurring, improved performance in low light, and access to flash when you need it.

Portrait Lighting.
Real-time studio lighting effects.

The product of extensive research into the art and science of portraiture, Portrait Lighting brings a new dimension to Portrait mode. Powered by A11 Bionic and the new ISP, Portrait Lighting uses facial detection and depth maps to capture portraits with striking shadows, spotlight effects, and more.

A11 Bionic
Can you create a chip that’s both powerful and intelligent? For iPhone 8 and iPhone X, we did. Meet A11 Bionic, the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone.

Unprecedented power.
With six cores and 4.3 billion transistors, A11 Bionic has four efficiency cores that are up to 70 percent faster than the A10 Fusion chip, and two performance cores that are up to 25 percent faster. The CPU can even harness all six cores simultaneously when you need a turbo boost.

Engineered for efficiency.
A11 Bionic manages its enormous power intelligently by directing tasks between the performance and efficiency cores. So the things you do most often — like texting and browsing the web — happen quickly while using less energy.

Augmented reality. Augmented.
With the A11 Bionic chip, AR games and apps reach a new level of fluidity and realism.

Silicon made for Metal 2 and Core ML.
Metal 2 is Apple‑designed graphics software that lets developers build console‑style games. And Core ML enables developers to integrate machine learning into their apps. The GPU in A11 Bionic is optimized for these new, immersive 3D games and AR experiences.

Wireless Charging
How do you make an iPhone designed for a wireless world? By building on wireless technology like headphones and advanced networking to introduce easy wireless charging. The glass back, together with an efficient charging system, allows you to simply set iPhone 8 down to charge it up.

Designed to work everywhere.
We wanted people to enjoy the convenience of wireless charging anywhere. So iPhone 8 works with Qi wireless chargers commonly found in hotels, cafes, airports, and cars. Belkin and Mophie have also developed two new wireless chargers designed for iPhone 8.

iOS 11
A giant step for iPhone.

iOS is the most advanced, intuitive, and secure mobile operating system in the world. It’s designed to help you get the most out of iPhone.
