iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus UK prices confirmed

Apple’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been given official SIM-free price tags ahead of pre–orders opening on 15th September.

The 4.7–inch iPhone 8 starts at £699 for a 64GB model, rising to £849 for a 256GB edition.

The larger, 5.5–inch iPhone 8 Plus costs £799 for a 64GB version and £949 for 256GB.

Both devices come in three colours: silver, gold and space grey and feature broadly similar design to last year’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The key change centres on the material used to make the phones.

Apple has switched to reinforced glass with an aluminium edge, which allows for wireless charging using Qi–powered charging mats.

Both phones will also support Apple’s new AirPower charging mat, which is due for release in 2018.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have cameras with optical image stabilisation, the larger model coming with a dual lens shooter.

Both offer improved low light performance compared with 2016’s iPhone line-up.

An A11 Bionic chip keeps things ticking, while also allowing for a new generation of augmented reality (AR) apps, while the speakers are now 25% louder.

While pre–orders start this Friday, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be on shelves from Friday 22nd September.
