So once you’re able to get the iPhone 8 in your hands, you should test out all its bells and whistles that the new model has to offer! To get you excited about the newest Apple products, we wanted to share some of the cool features that we love.
1. Quick Set Up Feature
a. I love having a new phone but definitely dread having to set it up. Apple has now a “Quick Set Up” feature that allows you to point your old iPhone's camera at the new phone. This will then connect the two phones. Once you input your old phone’s passcode onto the new one, the data will transfer. Super simple!
2. Making Looping Live Photos
I love Instagram simply because of the Boomerang feature. Now with the iPhone 8/8 Plus you can set a Live Photo to play in a loop, bounce back and forth. All you have to do is swipe the photo up to reveal the Effects list.
3. Siri Play My Favorite Song
Subscribed to Apple Music? If you answered yes, you can request Siri to play music right out of your library or any song to set the mood.
4. One handed Keyboard
I love the iPhone 8 Plus but it definitely makes it hard to type a message with one hand. So if you are struggling using the keyboard with one hand, you can now squeeze the entire keyboard to the right or left. All you have to go into your Keyboard settings and select the “One Handed Keyboard”
5. Charge without cables
Finally! You can charge your phone by simply placing it on a Qi charging pad.
6. Safety First!
You can now place your phone on “Do Not Disturb’ while driving to keep you safe. The iPhone can tell how fast you’re moving or whether you’re connected to an in-car Bluetooth system, and turn the feature on automatically.

7. Picture Perfect
Now in Portrait mode you will have new studio lighting options and stage effects, to enhance all your memories.
8. Is this real life?
Augmented reality hits your iPhone screens. Live a virtual reality right in your living room.
Most of these features can also be enjoyed on your older generations by updating your iOS. But if you have the newest Apple phone, let us know what you love most about your iPhone 8/8Plus!
