Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

How Apple plans to change the way you use the next iPhone

(Aug 31): Apple Inc plans to transform the way people use its next high-end iPhone by eliminating the concept of a home button and making other adjustments to a flagship device that’s becoming almost all screen, according to images of the new device viewed by Bloomberg News and people familiar with the gadget.

iPhone 8 a blessing and curse for M1 and StarHub

SINGAPORE (Aug 22): UOB KayHian says Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are both “a blessing and a curse” for telcos M1 and StarHub.

As iPhone 8 is a “stunningly beautiful must-have” smartphone, the incumbent telcos are expected to leverage on the phone to lock in new and existing customers ahead of the entry of TPG Telecom which just missed the boat.

“We have trimmed our target prices for M1 to $1.98 and for StarHub to $2.62 to factor in the higher handset subsidies incurred for iPhone 8,” says Jonathan Koh who has a “buy” for M1 and a “hold” for StarHub.
