Is the iPhone 8 really worth your time and money? The new IPhone’s release date is getting closer. It is being released on September 12, 2017, and the hype is increasing rapidly.

Most people intend to buy the 8 for its new features and updates, but has it really been modified over the last few years?

The designs on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6/6s plus changed drastically, and they were a success. Not only did the design become more popular, but the updates in the phone did too.

The size from the 6/6s plus ended up staying the same for the iPhone 7/7 plus, however, the latest version of the 7 was admired for the camera, making the lense wider for better camera quality. The camera in the 8 is now being placed vertically on the top left side of the phone.

Although the price has not been confirmed exactly, it is well informed that the price range is along the line of $1,000. Along with its heavy price tag, the phone is not going to have a home button, and will have an edge-to-edge display with a glass back. As for the color range, in the end, it will stay in gold, silver, and black.

Many people don’t see the necessity in buying this phone, as Arlene Avila states, “The IPhone 8 is ugly as the I saw the sneak peaks, I won’t buy it… like why is the camera flipped? That is very unnecessary.”

So the real question is, what will critics be saying about the changes and will it live up to the hype? The comments on the iPhone 8 and its features will have to remain unsaid for the meantime.
