iPhone 8: the consumer vs the future | #PNWeekly 272

Reviewers have started slinging editorial content about the iPhone 8, now that they have units in their hands and thoughts to share. Well, we’ve got a good thought or two to share, too: like, will the iPhone X crown the iPhone 8 as the most popular iPhone? The outlook right now is that the supply and demand curves will need a long time to match.

And if things pan out the way analysts think it will, where does that leave the consumer, who may be “stuck” with a top-tier device, but not get all the future-proofing of the tippiest of the tip-top features?

We debate with Dom Esposito on where Apple is on the gauge and talk about the big news of the week with this episode of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video recorded from 3:00pm Eastern on September 28th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
