Updated models of smartphones from the company are released annually Apple. Each generation of devices has useful features and additional capabilities. The recently launched eighth series smartphones have their own peculiarities, for example, the new iPhone 8 chips are special photography modes when using a portrait position of the frame, the ability to put the phone on wireless charging, an updated body shape and increased shock resistance.
In smartphones of this generation, new camera matrices are installed – this allows you to take pictures with additional settings and capabilities, and also improves the image quality when working with applications using augmented reality. An updated processor is also used to work with images. Its functions include recognition of people's faces and movements in front of the camera against the background. The processor manages to do this before pressing the shooting button.
The hardware upgrade has improved the quality of shooting, for example, the available video resolution was changed to Full HD. The smartphone has learned to smooth out fluctuations in the frame from shaking hands, so the video is recorded smoothly (without abrupt transitions between shots and without shaking within the frame).
For fans of artistic photography, there is an interesting opportunity to take pictures with the effect of depth of field. As a result, photos taken in portrait mode will have better quality than those on previous models, as the images are orders of magnitude sharper and contain more detail. At the same time, the blur in the frames will be brought closer to the natural appearance; this is done to add naturalness to the photos.
The Flash function is now available when shooting in Portrait mode (iPhone 8 Plus only). Both models are equipped with a True Tone Quad-LED flash, it illuminates more evenly and does not allow light to appear on the face when taking selfies.

In smartphones of the eighth model, the portrait lighting function has become popular, which qualitatively improves pictures. A special option built into the program recognizes the face on the photo contours, separates it from the background, and then allows you to make various changes to the background and lighting. For example, you can change the depth of field, make daylight or studio lighting.
The Camera app has an updated Slow Motion mode. In the eighth model, it supports 1080p and 240 frames per second.
In iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8, a technological opportunity appeared that was not previously available in any smartphone model Apple – wireless charging of the device. These gadgets have a glass back that allows charging according to the latest international standard (Qi), which makes the smartphone charge faster than before.
The process of charging the device has become not only faster, but also easier, now you just need to put your smartphone on any (not necessarily from Apple) wireless docking station.
The eighth generation smartphones are made in the same dimensions and proportions as the seventh model, but they received a new body design. Now devices are made of special stainless steel and special impact-resistant glass (in older models, aluminum was used for the back cover).
New materials made iPhone more pleasant to the touch and less slippery. The glass used in the screen is reliably protected from chips and scratches, since the protective layer built into it has become 1.5 times thicker. The front and rear windows have a special coating that allows you to easily wipe away fingerprints or dirt spots (dirt must be wiped off with a soft cloth).
