Poor reviews of the iPhone 8, which comes 10 years after Apple released the first version of the revolutionary phone, drove down shares of the company to near two-month lows of $152.75 on Thursday, as investors anxious pre-orders for the device had come in well below previous launches.

While the iPhone 8 features a single lens 12-megapixel camera, the Plus is equipped with dual lenses: a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and telephoto lens, with some new intelligent modes that help you take better "bokeh" shots. According to the latest report, the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus might come in with a smaller battery compared to the previous models. A handful of diehard fans gathered outside the technology giant's Regent Street store to be among the first to get the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which were unveiled earlier this month.
