Apple will launch the iPhone 8 on Tuesday. The new phone is set to be a radical change for the company as it celebrates the device’s 10th anniversary.

While for some, this will be a day that they have eagerly awaited, others may be less enthused. And there may be a few who don’t have a smartphone or even a mobile altogether.
