Apple has officially announced that it will be shutting down the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The two phones, which were released in September 2017, have been discontinued by Apple on April 15, 2020 with the release of the second-generation iPhone SE.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were the eleventh generation of the iPhone, succeeding the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and preceding the iPhone XR. The two phones featured a glass back and aluminum frame, and they were the first iPhones to feature wireless charging. They also featured a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD display, respectively, and they were powered by the A11 Bionic chip.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were the last iPhones to feature the iconic home button, which was replaced by the gesture-based navigation system in the iPhone X and later models. The two phones also featured the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, which was replaced by Face ID in the iPhone X.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were well-received by consumers, with many praising the phones for their design, performance, and battery life. However, the phones were overshadowed by the iPhone X, which was released just a few months later.

The discontinuation of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus marks the end of an era for Apple. The two phones were the last iPhones to feature the iconic home button and Touch ID, and they will be remembered fondly by Apple fans. While the phones may no longer be available, they will still be supported by Apple for the foreseeable future.
