The iPhone 14 series may be basking in the spotlight after its launch in September this year. However, older iPhones are still maintaining their relevance in the smartphone market, keeping pace with new models from other competitors. Apple still supports the compact iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with software updates, allowing them to run the latest iOS 15. They also have many note-worthy features, from an improved camera to wireless charging. If you are looking for a budget-friendly refurbished iPhone 8, Mobile Guru has an amazing collection of refurbished iPhone 8s at very affordable prices. Here is a guide to explore all the features and make the most of your refurbished iPhone 8.

  • Quickly transfer data to the new iPhone

If your previous iPhone runs iOS 11 or higher, you can take advantage of Apple’s Quick setup feature. You just need to point the camera of your old iPhone to the new refurbished iPhone 8, and the two devices will connect. Once you enter the passcode from your old iPhone to the new one, data will be transferred very quickly.

  • Take pictures with a portrait lighting feature

iPhone 8 Plus users can use four extra camera effects. You can take advantage of the depth effect with two additional lighting and two dramatic spotlight effects, taking your photography levels to another level. You can also edit and apply these effects to your pictures from your photo gallery.

  • Wireless charging

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus both support Qi wireless charging standards. Simply place your device on the Qi charging pad and charge your iPhone wirelessly.

  • Share iCloud storage with family members and friends

Do you have a family member complaining that they have crossed their free 5GB storage and cannot back up data anymore? You can share iCloud storage with your family members. You can turn this on in settings and share your space. All data stays safe and private. This feature only allows a user to share iCloud storage space; not data across Apple IDs.

  • True Tone display

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are the first iPhones to offer a True Tone display which uses the light sensor to dynamically alter the screen colour to match the surrounding lighting. You can also turn off this feature in the settings if you don't like it.

  • Screen recording

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus come with a built-in screen recording feature. You can add it to the control centre from settings and easily access it by swiping it up from the bottom of the screen.

  • Explore augmented reality

One of the most impressive features of the iPhone 8 is the ability to run augmented reality(AR) apps. Apple calibrates the cameras and sensors to provide a high level of accuracy for use in augmented reality apps.

In a nutshell, iPhone 8 is remarkably different from the latest iPhone models in terms of looks, but it still has many relevant features, especially as a refurbished phone.
