Although it’s quite old, the iPhone 8 is still receiving updates and will continue to do so until 2022. This applies to the iPhone 8 Plus as well. Apple renders support for devices 5-6 years after they’ve been released. Since the iPhone 8 was released in 2017, you should also receive iOS 16 on it. Apple skipped the iPhone 9 and jumped straight from iPhone 8 to iPhone X.
Getting the most out of your Apple smartphone requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.
Please be sure to read and save the entire manual before setting up or using your Apple iPhone 8. Misuse may damage the unit and/or cause harm or serious injury. Download the manual and save it for future reference.
