The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus appear to be equipped with new tech designed to improve call quality and reliability, a feature that Apple didn't mention at its launch event on 12th September.

Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) is the next generation iteration of HD Voice, which uses 4G signals to offer far more stable calls than on older devices using legacy networks.

Conjecture that the technology is on board Apple's latest phones emerged after EE said the new iPhones it sells come with Enhanced HD Voice, which appears to be its name for EVS.

It’s not yet clear if rival UK networks will serve up EVS for iPhone 8 owners.

With the technology seemingly featuring in the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, it's almost certain that it will also be on board the top-of-the-range iPhone X.

The top–end iPhone for 2017 is due to go on pre–order on 23rd October, before hitting shelves on 3rd November.

EVS is doubtful to be a deal-breaker for most users, but could boost call quality in areas that have previously had patchy reception.

What's new with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus? Here's everything you need to know.
