The iPhone and Student’s Opinions
Apple which is an American multinational technology company just had huge news this past Tuesday. Apple’s head of directors Tim Cook unveiled three new series of phones. The three phone are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus, and the iPhone X.
The iPhone X will feature an all-glass design that hasn’t been a design of an iPhone since the first edition iPhone, unlock of your phone using Face ID, wireless charging, and an improved rear camera with dual optical image stabilization. According to Cook “the iPhone X delivers a new outlook on what customers are used to seeing from iPhones.”
I’ve talked to several Lander University students who like the idea of the iPhone X, but many students have questions about the other two phone that Apple released. Many students around campus have noticed that the iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 plus are very similar to the iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 plus.
Alisha Taylor, Sophomore Nursing major said “I have an iPhone 7plus, and I feel like the only thing that makes me want to switch my phone out for the iPhone 8 is the new blush gold color that they introduced.” While Ashton White, Freshman English major stated that he has been “waiting for Apple to make a new phone announcement for the longest, because he wanted to switch his iPhone all-black 6 out for an all-black iPhone 8.” Student Fredrick Esker, Freshman Education major also shares White’s pain. Esker says “He would love to see the iPhone 8 in a grey tone.”
Esker also had this to say “I’ve done research on the new iPhone 8 and I found that the iPhone 8 is the first iPhone to support wireless charging along with the iPhone X. Apple changed up the iPhone’s looks a bit this year and used a glass back instead of just making the whole thing aluminum.” Senior Shayla Brantley, Mass Communications major stated that she is willing to switch up to the iPhone 8 because “It has the best battery life of all the other iPhone models.” Brantley also stated that “The 8 plus display might be smaller height wise compared to the iPhone X’s 5.8-inch screen, but it’s slightly wider because of their different aspect ratios. So apps like Instagram will actually look larger on the plus than on the X.”
Many Lander students seem to be very welcoming of the idea of the new iPhone models. While other feel there is no need to chance unless they have to.
