An iPhone formed from glass.
The most durable glass ever in a smartphone, front and back. A color‑matched, aerospace‑grade aluminum band. New space gray, silver, and gold finishes.
Water and Dust Resistant
Precision‑engineered to resist water and dust.
The glass back enables easy wireless charging.
The most durable glass ever in a smartphone.
The front and back feature custom glass with a 50 percent deeper strengthening layer. A new steel substructure and a stronger, aerospace‑grade 7000 Series aluminum band provide additional reinforcement. And an oleophobic coating lets you easily wipe off smudges and fingerprints.
Three new finishes.
iPhone 8 comes in three new glass finishes: space gray, silver, and gold. A seven‑layer color process allows for precise hues, opacity, and rich depth of color. And the matching aluminum band complements the glass beautifully.
