The iPhone 8 is one of Apple’s most popular devices. It’s not hard to see why, either! This smooth device features a glass body available in several fun colors like Space Gray and Gold. Better yet, the iPhone 8 has wireless charging capabilities, an A11 processor, true tone displays, and an enhanced camera. Launched in September 2017, it is available in 64GB and 256GB options.
Those looking to switch carriers or just upgrade their current device need to know that they don’t have to pay full price for an iPhone 8 this year. It’s possible to finance the iPhone 8, pay it up front, or trade in a device for it.
