"You won't replace your iPhone with a Watch because it just doesn't last long enough".

He explains this cannibalization in a better estimate for iPhone 8 models that are now sold out.

Let's start with The iPhone 8.

If consumers react well to Face ID when the iPhone X is launched, Kuo suggests that Apple will be likely to adopt a TrueDepth front-facing camera. It's simple, they want the iPhone X that will provide other features, an incredible screen, good camera and at a price that will be a little over the one for iPhone 8 Plus.

Their dimensions and weights are very different too. It can signal health problems, though Apple is stopping short of telling you to see a doctor or visit the emergency room, as the watch isn't marketed — or certified — as a medical device. In terms of the way they operate, the most noticeable difference between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus is in the camera.

The watch is created to rely less on the iPhone, and lets users answer calls, get texts, talk to Siri and access third-party apps without being tethered. It's also the highest resolution at 1125 x 2436 and the sharpest at 458 pixels per inch.

"The regular iPhone 8 is good", Spoonauer continued, "but 4.7 inches just doesn't cut it for me anymore".

Count on face recognition and good-looking selfies to overcome the sticker shock of Apple's most expensive phone to date. Think about it: Hackers will have finally met their match with these bad boys.

How much of an upgrade are we getting with these two phones?

As a effect of these financing plans, wireless carriers make less money off of a device than they could under a contract, and they often have to wait longer for consumers to upgrade their phones. Samsung, Apple's chief rival in the smartphone arena, has employed wireless charging for its Galaxy phones since 2013. This reduces the accuracy of the in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The Verge's review headline refers to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as "The default option", and notes "If you know what an iPhone is and you want one, then the iPhone 8 is exactly that, one tick farther down the line".

"I think it's the biggest issue of our time now, among all these big issues", the Apple chief said Wednesday during a talk at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York City.

A new feature that's come to both of these phones is wireless charging. Instead, it'll try and use the Wi-Fi connection, even if it doesn't have internet.

Everyone is talking about the new iPhones - especially the iPhone X, the largest leap forward in the iPhone's design since its invention. And that Touch ID feature would be of the virtual variety, allowing the company to bake it into the iPhone's screen and not force it to use a physical button to handle biometrics.
