iOS 11 vs. iOS 10

As excited as Apple fans were two weeks ago when the company unveiled the iPhone 8, iPhone X, Apple TV 4K and Apple Watch 3, the mood has soured somewhat in recent days. Not only are the reviews for Apple's slate of new devices less than glowing, but many users are running into issues with the recently released iOS 11 as well. In fact, dozens of users took to Reddit this weekend to vent about the iOS update.

There’s no better camera phone than the iPhone 8 Plus, at least until the iPhone X arrives in early November. One review of the first wave of iPhone 8 reviews focused solely on the new camera tricks made possible by the iPhone 8’s hardware and software innovations. One photographer took more than 2,000 pictures over an entire weekend to assess the performance of Apple’s newest iPhone and was more than impressed with the results.

iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone 7 Plus speed test: No one saw this coming

iPhone 8 Plus vs. iPhone 7 Plus

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are both available in stores right now, meaning that you can already buy Apple’s fastest iPhone ever. The A11 Bionic chip powering both phones is Apple’s best chip yet, scoring as high as a 2017 MacBook Pro in benchmark tests.
