How much has technology evolved over the years through Apple Products? Apple has answered that question by introducing the new IPhone 8 and IPhone X. What’s so special about the two new products anyway?


Lets start with the IPhone 8! The now released IPhone 8 is basically the upgraded version of the 7 with a few more features that the 7 doesn’t have. Those new features include…

  •  Wireless charging (faster charging)
  • A bigger 12 mega-pixel camera
  • A glass back, etc.

The 8 costs less then the X but about $100 dollars more than the 7.

The IPhone X is very different in cost and just different from all the other phones. The features of the new phone includes…

  • More storage and RAM
  • No home button
  • Facial ID
  • Animoji (animated emojis that mirror your expressions and movements)
  • Dual lenses camera system on back of phone
  • Enhanced filters (ex. Portrait Mode)
  • Increased battery life
  • Wireless charging

With all these new features the IPhone X comes out to be $1,000 dollars thus being the most expensive product Apple has ever made.

Below I have asked students about their opinions about the IPhone 8 and X.

 1.    Out of all the IPhones so far and their prices, what do you think about the price of $1,000 for the IPhone X?

  • Too much and overpriced.” – Jaylyn Montoya, 9
  • The price for the IPhone X is too expensive.” – Stephanie Du, 9

2.   How do you feel about the new and improved features the IPhone X comes with like facial recognition?

  • Overrated!” – Lilia Meza, 9
  • I feel there cheating us out of our money and it’s getting rid of important features.” – Le’Melody Williams, 10

3.   With every IPhone that has came out, why do you think Apple has the IPhone X be very different?

  • Maybe just extra features.” – India Lewis, 10
  • Because the X is different and newer than all the others.” – Blake Kilgore, 10

4.   Why would or wouldn’t you be interested into buying the new IPhones?

  • Price, and the 8 is basically the same thing as the 7 and the IPhone 7 is still brand new.” – India Lewis, 10
  • I would buy it just to see what features it has or how it ids different from the previous IPhones and I wouldn’t because of how expensive the phone is.” – Winter Bogan, 10

5.   What do you think about the IPhone 8 and its new features, looks, and price compared to the IPhone X?

  • It’s un-needed because its not enough to pay for.” – Blake Kilgore, 10
  • The IPhone 8 doesn’t look different from the other IPhones before, so its features are basically the same. The price is not worth it, but the IPhone X is an expensive price too, so both are not worth it.” – Stephanie Du, 10

6.   Why would the majority possibly favor the IPhone X rather than the IPhone 8?

  • “They say it’s better and some people need to fit in by buying it.” – Lilia Meza, 9
  • If their the kind of people who buys all the new IPhones and their filthy rich and maybe have no important things to do in their life.” – Le’Melody Williams, 10

7.    If you had the IPhone 7, would you buy the IPhone 8 even though it has almost the same features the 7 has plus some new ones?

  • No because the IPhone 7 is till brand new.” – India Lewis, 10
  • If I had the IPhone 7 I wouldn’t buy the IPhone 8 because the IPhone 7 technology is still relevant” – Amaris McCarver, 10

8.    If you were part of the design team for Apple Products, what changes would you have made or new features to add for either the IPhone X or 8?

  • The charger!” – Lilia Meza, 9
  • “Change the recognition and more fingerprints.” – Winter Bogan, 10

9.     Say a new Android phone came out that was similar to the IPhone X and a slightly lower price to the IPhone X, which brand would you go with?

  • The IPhone because I’m more familiar with Apple and their products.” – Jaylyn Montoya, 9
  • I say I go with the new Android phone because the IPhone X has a complicated system where it is harder for me to use.” – Stephanie Du, 10

10.    What is your opinion about Apple releasing 2 new phones even though one of the phones is more technology evolved and the other as some would say a waste of money?

  • Really extra and not needed. They’re just trying to take my money that I don’t have.”- India Lewis, 10  
  • I think because there haven’t been a lot of technological advances in smart phones this year and Apple didn’t really have a lot to work with, but they still had to release a new phone on a yearly basis.” – Amaris McCarver, 10

With all these responses and facts about the IPhone X and IPhone 8, what do you think about the two IPhones and would you consider buying them some time in the future?
