Apple iPhone X vs iPhone 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus: Here are all the specs differences

21

The iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus are now official, following months of numerous leaks, enticing rumors, and gossip. As usual, new iPhone releases are not only the highlight of the year for fans of everything Apple, but for almost all other smartphone geeks out there, who simply can't wait to praise, or on the contrary - heavily criticize Cupertino and just about anything that gets shown on stage.


In what's quite possibly the largest iPhone release so far, Apple has not only updated its flagship iPhones, but also introduced a whole new 10th anniversary edition that is easily one of this year's head-turners.

But how does it differ from the more regular and traditional iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus? What sets it apart except for the obvious design difference? Here's what you need to know:
