Released in 2017, Apple's iPhone 8 is a stylish and sleek mobile phone with data, cameras, and plenty of storage space, so you can document your life as you live it. Browse the range of Apple iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 phones on eBay to see all the available options.

What does SIM-free Apple iPhone 8 mean?

SIM-free means that the phone comes without a SIM. If you want to keep your old number this is ideal as you can simply insert your SIM card and begin to use your new SIM-free Apple iPhone 8 straight away. Bear in mind though, that this may depend on your getting an unlocked Apple iPhone 8.

How to unlock a phone

A phone being 'locked' in this context means that it has been registered to a service provider and that SIM cards belonging to other networks will not work without inputting an unlock code into the phone. Phones can be unlocked fairly easily, but it can take a bit of time and you will usually have to pay for the service, so if you want to begin using your new iPhone 8 as soon as possible, choosing an unlocked version is a good idea.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 specifications

Apple iPhone 8 Plus measures 158.4 millimetres by 78.1 millimetres by 7.5 millimetres. It weighs a hefty 202 grams and has a 5.5-inch screen. The storage space ranges from 64GB to 256GB – an Apple iPhone 8 256GB will hold a large number of high-definition photographs.

The iPhone 8 is smaller and lighter, measuring 138.4 millimetres by 67.3 millimetres by 7.3 millimetres and weighing 148 grams. The screen measures 4.7 inches and the storage ranges from 64GB to 128GB.

Both models feature glass backs which means that they are ready for wireless charging, crystal clear retina display, and useful 12 MP cameras (the Plus has dual back cameras (wide and telephoto lens, while the regular iPhone 8 has a single, wide-angle back camera) as well as front-facing cameras for professional-quality selfies.

The phones both come in three colour choices:

  • Space grey.
  • Silver-white.
  • Gold.
How does wireless charging work?

With wireless charging, you must have a base, called a Qi-certified charging base, into which your lightning charging cable fits. The phone rests, back down, on top of the charging station and the phone will begin to charge after a moment or two. Apple does not produce Qi-certified bases, but iPhones are readily compatible with them.
