Attention tech people and iPhone lovers everywhere. (I’m an iPhone gal myself. I currently rock a 7 Plus). Apple has officially unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus!

Yep. It’s an all new glass design. I don’t even have it yet, and I already broke it. Although I should note, they SWEAR this is the most durable iPhone ever.
“This is a huge step forward for iPhone,” says Cook.
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus has an all-glass body and comes in silver, space grey and a new gold colour. For those worried about cracking the front and back of the new device, Phil Schiller says the glass is reinforced with a steel and copper structure and is “the most durable ever in a smartphone”.
The devices have 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch retina displays and run on an A11 bionic chip.
Apple is also introducing wireless charging, which is already A Thing. But now that Apple is embracing it, it’ll definitely become the mainstream thing.

Will you be purchasing one of these bad boys?
Update: The iPhone X is also A Thing. It has FaceID, which is 50% cool and 50% creepy.
