The iPhone X was the centre of all the scuttlebutt since last year and managed to grab all the attention during Apple’s 2017 launch spectacle. Nevertheless, even if the iPhone X was the show stealer, many people will still purchase iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. Compared to the £1000 X, the other two are priced reasonably. Yes, they are not all that showy. They still carry traces of the past- the old-fashioned physical home buttons! But they are filled up with the usual Apple’s beautiful design, premium build quality, sterling features, and smooth performance. Obviously, this doesn’t mean iPhone 8 will be downright perfect. After a glimpse of iPhone X, you would want to add some cracking accessories to it. Here are some hand-picked best bits and bobs for you.
