Is the iPhone 8 being outsold by the iPhone 7?

iPhone 8 Vs iPhone 7

While it's typically easy to gauge the popularity of a new iPhone model, current demand for Apple's recently released iPhone 8 models is something of an enigma. Depending on who you ask, iPhone 8 sales are either disappointing or exactly where they should be in light of the forthcoming iPhone X release. A recent analyst note, however, is perhaps the most pessimistic take on iPhone 8 sales we've seen yet.

According to a research note from KeyBanc analyst John Vinh, Apple may have reason to worry. According to a recent survey conducted by Vinh, and originally published by Reuters, it's not just that iPhone 8 sales are trending lower than anticipated, it's that Apple is still selling more iPhone 7 models than iPhone 8 models. The supposed reason for this curious finding is that the iPhone 7 is more affordable and essentially delivers the exact same features as the iPhone 8.

How the iPhone’s insides have changed, from the original iPhone to the iPhone X

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7 vs original iPhone

We all know that the iPhone has changed a lot. If you have an old original iPhone lying in a drawer somewhere, you've probably picked it up in the past couple of years, and marveled at how thick it is, and how tiny the screen seems.

Bloomberg and iFixit have teamed up to take the basic gawking a step further. In a neat new project, they've superimposed the guts of every generation of iPhone next to each other, and the contrast is truly startling.

Reports of weak iPhone 8 demand are way off the mark

iPhone 8 Vs iPhone X

A recent piece from Bloomberg argues that investors might have reason to be concerned about demand for the iPhone 8. Citing early disclosure data from AT&T financial statements, Shira Ovide relays that the number of subscribers opting to exchange older smartphones for newer models dropped by 900,000 year over year.

"The quarter included about a week of U.S. sales for Apple's iPhone 8 models, one of two new smartphone lines the company debuted last month," Ovide writes. "If the iPhone 8 had been a hit out of the gate, then I would have expected AT&T's upgrade number might at least have fallen less dramatically."

iPhone 8’s swelling battery problem appears in the US for the first time

iPhone 8 Battery Swelling Problem

What would a new iPhone launch be without at least one bump in the road? It's no Antennagate, but Apple seems to have something of a problem on its hands with the iPhone 8. Reports of swelling iPhone 8 batteries that cause the phones to actually split have now reached into the double digits. Some iPhone 8 batteries have ballooned up in transit, while others have malfunctioned while charging.

Apple has confirmed that it's looking into the matter, and it's still far too early to say exactly what's going on. The problem isn't going away, however, and we now have our first report of a swollen battery incident that affected an iPhone 8 in the US.

iOS 11 lets you shut down your iPhone and iPad without the power button

iOS 11 Tips

iOS 11 may not come jam-packed with an endless list of cool and must-have features, but there's still a lot to like about the latest update to Apple's mobile software. From a revamped Control Center to new image formats that will prevent photos and videos from eating up all your storage, iOS 11 is certainly an update worth downloading. And that's to say nothing of the support for some of the incredibly cool ARKit-based apps that continue to pop up in the App Store. As it stands now, iOS 11 hasn't even been out for a full month and nearly 40% of all iOS devices are already running it. In stark contrast, more than 80% of all Android devices are currently running variants of Android that are at least two years old.

iPhone 8 battery swelling incidents have been reported at least seven times now

iPhone 8 Battery

At least seven iPhone 8 battery swelling incidents have been reported since Apple launched the new phones on September 22nd. The number seems big but it’s still not statistically relevant, given the millions of iPhone 8 units that Apple has undoubtedly sold so far.

Last year’s Galaxy Note 7 battery-related recall is still fresh in people’s minds, when it comes to such incidents. But there’s really no reason to worry about Apple just yet.

The iPhone 7 is still a great phone, and right now it’s absurdly cheap

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7: T-Mobile

Forget the iPhone X and Google's shiny new Pixel 2 for a second, because this is the best deal I can remember seeing on the still-great iPhone 7. T-Mobile is selling certified refurbished 32GB iPhone 7 devices for just $366 right now.

That's an objectively small amount of money to spend on a phone that is still highly capable. With iOS 11 loaded up, you're unlikely to notice many differences between the 7 and a new iPhone 8, but you sure as hell will notice the spare $400 in your pocket.

Will the Pixel 2’s dual speaker system beat the iPhone 8?

iPhone 8 vs. Galaxy Note 8

Google did not get the full memo on 2017 smartphone design. Instead of having two all-screen phones in stores this year to take on the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 phones of the world, Google is innovating by placing dual front speakers on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, intended to offer users an improved sound experience.

But it’ll be interesting to see whether the Pixel 2 phones will actually have better audio quality than the iPhone 8.
