The iPhone 8 Plus is officially here, and it turns out the long-rumored handset is what we'd previously thought would be the iPhone 7S Plus. It comes alongside the new iPhone 8 and super high-spec iPhone X.
Apple has dropped the S moniker from its range of phones and called this new upgrade the iPhone 8 Plus instead.
iPhone 8 Plus price
Apple has confirmed that the iPhone 8 Plus price will start at $799 ( (£799, AU$1,229). That's for the starting 64GB version, but we don't yet know how much the larger 256GB variant will be.
iPhone 8 Plus specsification
The new phone runs on the A11 Bionic chipset from Apple. It's a six-core chip that runs 25% faster than the A10 in the iPhone 7 Plus. As usual, Apple hasn't shared how much RAM will be in the iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple has also designed its own GPU for the A11 Bionic, which the company says will allow for 30% faster graphics than in the A10. There's also Bluetooth 5 tech built-in that allows for a faster connection and longer range than previous tech.
The iPhone 8 Plus will come with either 64GB or 256GB of storage onboard. The phone will also launch with the brand-new iOS 11 software.
