We’re a nation of social media fans, with nearly 7 out of 10 of us engaging in social media to share photos, videos, fascinating articles, and our observations of the world around us, according to 2017 research from Pew Internet. If you love social media, you’re bound to love one of Apple’s newest phones: the iPhone 8. This modern Apple smartphone is ideal for social media.
A High-Quality Camera
Professional photographers were already celebrating the quality of Apple cameras, but the tech brand isn’t one to rest on its laurels. The iPhone 8’s 12-megapixel camera is even more advanced than its predecessor’s, with a larger and faster sensor so you never miss a shot. Its enhanced color filter and deeper pixels also ensure those selfies look better on your social media account. If you’ve always struggled with steady hands, you’ll be thankful for the optical image stabilization, available on the wide-angle lens, which eliminates the shakes from your photos and videos. The 5x digital zoom helps you capture interesting things that aren’t close without compromising quality.
Taking great photos during the day is always easier, but night photos have always posed a greater challenge. Usually you get your subjects lit up but the background fades to black. Not so on the iPhone 8, which features a revolutionary quad-LED flash with slow sync. The shutter speed is slowed down with a short probe pulse that guarantees your background and your subject is exposed. It’s ideal for those party selfies and concert action shots.
High Internet Speeds When You Choose the Right Network
Networks are becoming faster, but older phones don’t have what it takes to use that extra speed. The iPhone 8 has the technology to pair perfectly with a 4G LTE network, like T-Mobile, for lightning-fast internet. While it means you can upload photos faster, the real benefits come when you’re using advanced social media functions, such as live streaming.
A Mighty Processor
It might not be very glamorous, but the importance of a speedy processor shouldn’t be underestimated by social media fans. The new A11 Bionic chip is what ensures your favorite social media apps update quickly and the viral videos you love play without buffering. It also lets you switch from one task to another with ease so you can take that call from your bestie and then get back to commenting on an intense social media thread without missing a beat.
The A11 Bionic chip has two high-performance cores with four high-efficiency cores. The pair of high-performance cores are 25 percent faster than what we saw on the iPhone 7’s A10 Fusion chip while the quartet of high-efficiency cores are a staggering 70 percent faster, according to MacWorld. The GPU was also designed by Apple, so you know it runs exactly as the brand wants.
Good Battery Life and Fast to Charge
Playing around on social media normally tends to eat through your smartphone batteries. Apple understands this, so it’s equipped the iPhone 8 with a non-removable Li-Po, 1,821mAh battery. Its life is comparable to the battery we saw on the iPhone 7, but the battery is roughly 7 percent smaller. That means you should be able to use the internet for up to 12 hours on a single charge. The battery manages its exceptional performance thanks to that new energy-efficient A11 Bionic chip and optimized iOS 11 operating system.
Seeing a phone’s battery has dropped down below 20 percent is enough to make any social media fan panic. But don’t stress. The iPhone 8 has a special Low-Power mode, which helps prolong the battery’s life as it’s nearing its end.
Moreover, when it’s time to recharge, it won’t take long until you’re back in business again. The iPhone 8’s 5V/1A charger plug brings a dead battery back to 30 percent in 30 minutes. If you have a MacBook USB-C charger with 29W or more, it’ll take your iPhone 8 up to 50 percent in that time.
Take your social media accounts to the next level and enjoy the convenience of easier updating on the go with the new iPhone 8.
