iPhone 8 Features

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality: each iPhone has been customized for AR. New sensors to deliver better AR. Some cool AR app demos like the MLB app that lets you see which players are in the field by holding up your phone.

Wireless Charging

The iPhone 8 will have wireless charging, a first for the iPhone. Both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus support wireless charging specifically because the back of the phone is glass, Apple’s Eddy Cue said. Though there are several different “standards” for wireless charging, Apple said it’s using the most common standard: Qi (pronounced “chi”).

FaceID

TrueDepth camera system at the top of the display, in the screen’s “notch.” Every time you look at the iPhone, it detects your face, even in the dark, using IR. It makes a mathematical model of your face and checks it against the one stored on the phone. All the face data is stored on the device, not a server. Schiller says a photograph can’t spoof it. Apple says there’s a one in a million chance someone can trick the facial recognition.

Face ID works with Apple Pay: double tap the side button and looks at the camera to authenticate. Animoji: animated emojis you can control with your face. There are a dozen different Animojis, including the poop face.

Waterproof

Like the iPhone 7, the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is waterproof. This photo is either an illustration of that, or these iPhones just got out of the shower.
