Users now are not able to charge and listen to music (via wired headphones) simultaneously.

Just how many iPhone 8 buyers have experienced the problem is still unknown, though it appears to be several isolated cases rather than a more widespread issue. "That is something perhaps that's lacking for the iPhone 8", Xiaohan Tay said.

The design of the iPhone 8 is nearly exactly the same as the iPhone 7, which was nearly exactly the same as the iPhone 6.

"We think ASPs could surprise investors on the upside due to strong demand for iPhone X and $50 ASP increase broadly this year vs. last generation", he said.

The high-end iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that have flooded the Indian market are witnessing "pale" response from the consumers as compared to the previous year.

Also, there might be a problem with the iPhone 8 that could be serious. This year's model features wireless charging, hence the aluminum uni-body design was abandoned for a more traditional glass back.

Electronic Arts has removed the Denuvo anti-tamper tech from one of their most popular games, Mass Effect: Andromeda. One of the novelties of this Switch version is the option to control the game with a single Joy-Con.

Apple released the new iOS 11 mobile operating system September 19 with a decent amount of fanfare, as its coming out-party, for the most part, coincided with the introduction and subsequent shipping of the iPhone 8.

Every time Apple releases a new version of iOS, there never a shortage of people complaining that their battery life has gone from great to bad. While making a statement to MacRumors, it said that the investigations have been initiated in this regard. However, after further reports have emerged, Apple has now launched a formal investigation into the matter. Many in the industry feel that Apple is doing this to market its new 10th-anniversary special edition iPhone X which is dubbed as the costliest iPhone ever.

Finally, augmented reality is neat, but there's not a whole lot you can do with it yet.

T-Mobile's pricing for the iPhone X is exactly the same as Apple's - the handset starts at $1,000. Some of the upgraded features of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus include a new proprietary six-core, 64-bit A11 Bionic chip. After spending a brief time with both phones, I can see the appeal: they're still indispensable in Apple's catalogue. The A11 Bionic also features an all-new Apple designed tri-core GPU that boasts 70% better graphical performance than its predecessor.

Apple and a few other groups hyped up the camera on the iPhone 8, but there's nearly no noticeable improvements over the camera of the iPhone 7.

The iPhone 8 series are the first Apple smartphones to support wireless charging, allowing the phones to be charged by placing them face up on a special mat or tabletop.
