Apple finally revealed the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in a major news conference at 9:40 AM ET on Tuesday, marking the first time that an iPhone has been released in a month since the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X were released in October of last year.
While Apple’s keynote has become one of the company’s biggest event events, it’s also become a point of contention between fans and critics.
We’ve taken a look at some of the more controversial and downright hilarious arguments that have erupted in the comments section of Apple’s event coverage.
Here’s a look back at some more of the most popular debates.
Apple’s announcement of the iPhone8 and iPhone8 Plus comes after months of speculation that Apple would finally release a premium iPhone that would feature a higher-resolution display.
While Apple has said that its goal with the iPhoneX is to offer the same high-end experience as the iPhone7 and iPhone7 Plus, many Apple fans and iPhone users feel that the iPhone will never be as affordable as its flagship rivals like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple announced the iPhone line at the iPhone event in September of last 2016.
At that time, Apple was rumored to be looking to introduce a 5.7-inch iPhone X in early 2018.
In the weeks that followed, Apple also announced a larger-screen iPhone X and iPhone 7 Plus, which would offer a 4.7 inch screen.
Since then, Apple has continued to unveil its premium iPhone lineup, even releasing a 6.2-inch screen version of its iPhone X back in September.
However, in December, Apple announced the smaller-screen, 12.9-inch version of the same iPhone, which was widely criticized for lacking a true flagship-class screen.
Apple has yet to officially announce a successor to the 12.7″ iPhone X that would take its larger-sized display to a larger resolution, but rumors have suggested that the company may launch a larger version of this device before the end of the year.
Apple has also been rumored to unveil a smaller, smaller iPhone X with a smaller display in 2018.
Apple also released a new, smaller version of it in April 2018.
