    He says the design is new
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:57:24 PM
    So, remember: iPhone 8 refers to the similar-design step-up phone. Same look, but "all new design" - glass on front and back.

  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:57:52 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:57:53 PM
    Aerospace-grade aluminum, 7-layer color process on the glass, he says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:57:58 PM
    Glass reinforced by steel. "laser welded steel and copper structure"
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:58:01 PM
    There's a steel and copper structure.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:58:08 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:58:14 PM
    "most durable glass in smartphone" - how shatter resistant?
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:58:15 PM
    Schiller touts this as the most durable glass ever put into the phone, he says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:58:22 PM
    Still 4.7 and 5.5 displays
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:58:25 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:58:30 PM
    Aside from the glass back, it looks very similar to the previous models.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:58:39 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:58:45 PM
    Apple brings True Tone display capability to the iPhone.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:58:49 PM
    True Tone is now added in the iPhones. That was in the iPad Pros, adapts color warmth.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:58:57 PM
    The new iPhones have new speakers that are 25% louder.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:58:59 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:59:06 PM
    Deeper bass on the speakers.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:59:10 PM
    The iPhones have a brand new chip called the A11 bionic.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:59:15 PM
    A11 Bionic chip. (!) what does that mean?
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:59:20 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:59:23 PM
    It's the most powerful and smartest chip ever in a smartphone, Schiller says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:59:40 PM
    It uses six cores in its CPU.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:59:45 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:59:53 PM
    six-core this time, 2 high-performance, 4 power-efficient ones. 70% faster than A10
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:59:59 PM
    Two cores for performance, two for high efficiencies.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 6:00:04 PM
    Apple designed GPU.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 6:00:10 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 6:00:14 PM
    The GPU is designed to accelerate 3D apps and games using Metal 2 framework.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 6:00:20 PM
    It's good for machine learning tasks too.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 6:00:25 PM

  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 6:00:43 PM
    The iPhones have an Apple designed image-signal processor, he says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 6:00:51 PM
    Apple designed its own GPU for this. Handles machine learning and Core ML. And new ISP for photography, low light autofocus, better pixel processor, noise reduction
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 6:01:15 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 6:01:15 PM
