Apple's iPhone 8 And iPhone 8 Plus Gets Unboxed

Said another way, the survey suggested 64% of iPhones in the next year will be either the iPhone X, iPhone 8, or 8 Plus, compared to our current model of 45%.

A consumer who successfully bought an iPhone 8 on Friday morning told Xinhua that customers did not even need to pre-order online before getting the new phones at the store.

Hundreds of people usually gather at Apple's Sydney city store with queues winding down the town's main street, George Street, when there is a new product release.

You can find out more details about the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus over at Apple, prices for the new iPhones start at $699 for the iPhone 8 and $799 for the 8 Plus.

The two lowest tiers have 100 minutes and 500 minutes of calls and 500 SMS and 1,000 SMS, respectively, while all other tiers feature unlimited calls and SMS.

At the only official store in Shenzhen, for instance, less that a dozen people were queuing outside before the store opened to wait to pick up their new phones, despite the company putting up several rows of queuing railings outside and round the corner, to cope with what was clearly expected to be a potential scrum of buyers.

There could be a rather simple explanation as to why this launch day felt so different, however: In a little over a month, for the first time in Apple's history, the store will host its second iPhone launch, the one for the much more anticipated iPhone X.

Tropical Storm Jose brings high winds, power outages
Wednesday night through Thursday, portions of coastal southeast New England may see bands of rain, possibly heavy at times. Winds were reported to be blowing at 20 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 miles per hour Wednesday evening.

M1 has yet to reveal its iPhone X pricing.

According to analysts cited by The Wall Street Journal, a big reason why demand for the iPhone 8 is seemingly tepid is precisely due to the fact that most customers are holding on to purchase an iPhone X.

As with last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it's the camera where you'll notice the difference.

The new flagship iPhone X uses new components, such as an OLED display, that are more hard to manufacture, and Apple's high, rigorous standards are the reason why it will be another six weeks before it hits the market.

Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks about the new iPhone 8 during a media event at Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino, California.

The iPhone 8 retails at $1,148 for the 64GB version, $1,308 for the 64GB iPhone Plus version and $1,548 for the 258GB iPhone Plus.
