Phones
So excited to tell you all about the new iPhone 8 and the new iPhone 8 Plus. These are a new generation of iPhone. It comes in silver, space grey, and the beautiful new gold finish. [APPLAUSE] iPhone 8 and 8 Plus It's also microscopically sealed for water and dust resistance. [BLANK_AUDIO] And they have a new retina HD display in each model, there's 4.7 inch retina display in iPhone 8 and a 5.5 inch in iPhone 8 Plus. Along with the displays iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have new stereo speakers as well They're 25% louder than the speakers in iPhone 7, and they have a deeper base. Inside iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is a brand new chip, and this is a breakthrough performance in a mobile device. We call it A11 Bionic. [APPLAUSE] The 64-bit design, 4.3 billion transistors, six-core We're gonna geek out here for a bit, because it is so awesome. It is two high performance cores. They're 25% faster than the high performance cores in the previous industry leading A10 chip. It's four high-efficiency cores. They're up to 70% faster than the ones in the A10 chip. The GPU is designed to accelerate 3D apps and games, especially those that use our new metal two framework. All of this helps to improve performance and helps us take better pictures. It is an all new 12 mega pixel sensor. It's larger and faster. iPhone 8 Plus has two new sensors in its dual camera. The wide angle camera has an F1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization. The telephoto camera has f 2.8 aperature. So as always, we want to show you the kind of photos you can take. Lastly, we introduce portrait mode. iPhone 8 takes fantastic portrait modes, and people flip over taking these photos. And now with the iPhone 8 plus, you're gonna get sharper details, more uses in low light And even a more natural boat guy in the background of the photos. Using the dual cameras and the A11 bionic chip, in the iPhone 8 plus the team has come up with a new feature called portrait lighting. Then you see machine learning that creates facial landmarks and actually changes the lighting of the contours over your face. These aren't filters. This is realtime analysis of the light on your subject's face. In fact you can go in later after you've shot a portrait mode photo into the photo's app and change the lighting effect to select which one you want to use in your photograph. iPhone 8 has the highest quality video capture ever in a smart phone. So let's say you're shooting 4K 60 frame of video. It can look like this, it's beautifully optimized for quality and for compression level. And this video was shot on an iPhone in 4K, it's amazing. We custom tune each iPhone for augmented reality. The cameras are actually individually calibrated in the factory, and that makes a huge difference in the performance for AR. There are new gyroscopes, new accelerometers. Here's Sky Guide from Fifth Star Labs. You can use AR kit with this app to actually superimpose the map on top of the sky as you're looking at it around you. What's really cool is with AR kit, the metal tool on the new iPhone, we are able to experience games in an entirely new way Since players are able to view the game from any angle, our content has to be incredibly detailed. With the power of the new iPhone and unreal support for [UNKNOWN]. We are able to render the entire level on screen. An amazing 1.2 million [UNKNOWN]. While also Allowing you to move in close to really appreciate the high visual fidelity. And now with iPhone eight with it's glass back. We're enabling the freedom of wireless charging. What makes this possible is we're building into iPhone eight plus wireless charging with Qi. Qi is the leading open wireless charging standard. And we hope to help chi by increasing adoption of it, and creating new use cases for it. Many restaurants, shops, airports, cars have started to build in support for chi wireless charging and it'll work with iPhone 8. Many companies are offering chi chargers, and those that are chi certified should all work with iPhone 8.
