The iPhone 8 was released alongside the iPhone 8 Plus and just prior to the iPhone X in September 2017. The iPhone 8 used a similar form factor as its predecessor yet with a much improved all glass design. The iPhone 8 also showed off Apples new A11 Bionic processor which is 30% faster than Apples previous processor. This gives the iPhone 8 a speed boost as well as better battery life as it is more efficient than the previous processor. The iPhone 8 is also one of the first iPhones to support wireless charging due to its glass back design, alongside the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X.
