Apple’s online store changed to the “We’ll be back” message Thursday evening in preparation for Friday morning’s iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and Apple Watch Series 3 pre-orders.
Portrait Mode wasn’t included with iOS 10 at launch. It was released with the iOS 10.1 update. So Portrait Lighting will probably come with iOS 11.1.
All of the new models have better cameras with more functionality, a new image sensor processor, and studio lighting.
Apple posted a new commercial to YouTube called iPhone in a Whole New Light. It’s the usual introductory commercial for a new iPhone, and includes the slow motion closeup reveal of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Both were announced during Apple’s media event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park.
Apple posted a short spot called iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 8 seconds. It’s a rapid fire look at some of the new features in the company’s new iPhone 8 line.
It will ship with 64GB and 256GB models, starting at $699 for iPhone 8 and $799 for iPhone 8 Plus.
