How to fix the iPhone 8’s headphone jack in less than a week
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are finally here, and the new phones have the same hardware design and features that made them so appealing to tech fans in the first place.
Both are powered by the Snapdragon 835 chip and come with a 12.3-megapixel camera, a 4.5-inch screen, and an 8-megabyte storage option.
However, Apple’s software for the phones is now a little different than it was before.
For one thing, the phone will have a new “Siri” voice-activated assistant.
For another, the 8 and 10 Plus will get a fingerprint sensor that Apple has said will allow them to unlock the phones faster than before.
And finally, the new iPhone is expected to have a much bigger battery.
It’s still not a big upgrade over the 7 and 6 Plus, but the new iPhones should be significantly faster, according to AppleInsider.
But that won’t be the case for everyone.
“It’s definitely going to take some time to get used to,” one former Apple employee told us.
“A lot of people don’t even know they need it, and it’ll be a little hard for some people to get the hang of it.”
AppleInsiders reader Alex Friesen has had some experience with Siri and Apple’s new assistant.
In his opinion, Apple has done a great job with its Siri software, but he still doesn’t believe Siri is ready to replace the voice assistant on the iPhone.
“I’d say Siri is the future,” Frieser said.
“They should be adding more voice-action features, but it’s hard to know how long they’ll be able to do that without Apple giving it a lot more attention.”
For now, the Siri experience will be limited to a few features in iOS 10.1.
That means you can’t ask Siri for directions, check email, or listen to music through Siri.
However you can now ask Siri to send you an email with a message, which will send you a reminder of that email in a few minutes.
You can also use Siri to set reminders for a certain date, a certain day, or to set a specific reminder for a specific location.
You’ll be asked to pick one of the four Siri-specific Siri actions that the new phone will support.
These include: send an email (to, from, or a contact); change a notification; change a text message; and send a photo.

AppleInsies reader Dan Coker is a big fan of the new voice-operated assistant, but said that the interface will be somewhat of a mixed bag.
“The interface will definitely have a lot of limitations in terms of how you interact with it, but I don’t think Siri is going to replace voice-command,” he said.
However he did say that Siri will make it easier to use Siri.
“Sonic does this thing where he’s tapping on the screen and it tells you a message in a voice, and you have to say, ‘yes’ to it,” Coker said.
That is, if you want to use the Siri app, you have the option to tap on the text, or tap on a button and say, “yes” to it.
“So I can say, hey, this is a new email from my friends.
I’m going to do this today, and I’m asking Siri to take me to my friends,” he added.
Coker thinks that this is the biggest problem with Siri, and he also thinks that Apple is working on a solution.
“Apple seems to be a lot closer to being able to replace Siri, but they’re not quite there yet,” he told us, “so it’s kind of like trying to replace your iPod or iPad.
It’ll be good enough for a few years, but when Apple starts to make Siri work on the phone it’ll likely be too late.”
This is just the latest in a long line of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus reviews that have come out since the phones were announced.
