How wireless charging will work in the upcoming iPhone 8?

Wireless charging feature has become a staple course on most of the high-end flagship devices by the smartphone manufacturers. Samsung was first OEM to deliver remarkable wireless charging capability to its premium Galaxy S models. But Apple has simply couldn’t bring this feature to its iconic iPhone range which are known for their terrible battery life and needs constant charging. But experts believe that this equation is all set to change with the launch of iPhone 8 next month.

How it will work on iPhone 8?

A number of rumours and inside reports have suggested that the one of the new premium models of the iPhone will feature the coveted wireless charging technology. It should be noted that Apple is all set to launch three iPhones this year which will include the ‘s’ models of iPhone 7 and Plus variants along with a special high-end iPhone 8. Apple is known for its secrecy surrounding the launch of the upcoming devices so there is no confirmation of the same from Apple but all hints points towards the same conclusion.

Some of the major tech companies like Samsung, HTC, LG and Huawei are already a member of the Wireless Power Consortium. This consortium has comes with the popular standard which is called Qi charging and it is designed to empower the wireless charging capability among the electronic devices. Apple has just joined this group which gives rise to speculation that Apple is aiming towards bringing the same technology to its smartphone line up.

This means that iPhone 8 will certainly possess this charging capability making use of the existing wireless chargers. Apple will also have to take requisite license in order to ensure that other devices are compatible with its new charging technology. Apple will certainly be bringing its very own range of wireless charging pad which will sold apart from the iPhone.

Is it right to being wireless charging on iPhone

Despite huge popularity wireless charging is known for being a slower and quite expensive technology than the usual plug-in method. In the wireless charging method the way energy gets transferred happens to be less efficient than the normal charging method. A number of firms are trying to enhance the wireless charging technology in order to make it faster and efficient than ever before. Firms are trying to come up with an advanced ‘magnetic resonant’ charging format which will enable users to charge multiple devices at once.

A number of places have started offering wireless charging option at their premises to help users charge their devices on the go. This includes some of the popular restaurants and hotels like McDonald’s, Starbucks, PremierInn and Ladbrokes. Sadly some of the rumours has emerged which proclaims that the wireless charging on iPhone 8 will be slowest when compared to other smartphones. All of these are mere speculation but having wireless charging capability on the iPhone devices will be better than not having it at all.

New iPhone 8 Leak Reveals Apple's Sneaky Secret

iPhone 8 – Various New Technologies

The upcoming iPhone 8 of Apple will be coming with various new technologies to its users and one of them is a mainstay of several Android handsets, namely wireless charging.

However, the implementation of Apple will be disappointing to those anticipating for the accepted protocols to be acknowledged. Tim Cook together with his team are expected to lock the iPhone 8 from utilising Apple’s own wireless charging units or the charging units which tend to adhere to the `Made for iPhone’ – MfI program that involves financial payment to Apple from the third-party dealers.

Earlier in the year, when Apple had merged with the Wireless Power Consortium, there seemed to be some expectation that it would adopt the industry standard Qi charging protocol. According to reports from Macotakara, recently recommend that the wireless charging utilised by Apple would be running at just 7.5 watts.

In comparison to the 15 watts that makes up the Qi 1.2 standard. Moreover, it also recommends that the third-party charging pads would require to be licensed through the MfI program. This would clarify in fragment why wireless charging would not be available out of the box rather than waiting for iOS 11 software update to turn on.

 

Qi Standard

 
Undoubtedly, part of the iOS charging process would be to verify that the pad providing the inductive power is said to be licensed by Apple and if it is not, the iPhone 8 will decline to receive the incoming charge.

The outcome is that the plethora of charging pads together with the accessories presently available in the markets which tend to be interchangeable with any device that supports the Qi standard would be unable to charge the new iPhones 8.

Apple had intended not to work with the increasing and accepted standard, rather than decide to put up a technological barrier between the charging community together with the iPhone, for instance, the swelling number of public `wireless charging’ spots from companies like AirCharge would be unable to get along with the latest device of Cupertino Company.

Once again Apple had opted to capitalize on the financial returns for its company while ignoring the greater good of endorsing a single standard.
 

Three Storage Tiers

 
Though it is appropriate within its right in doing so, the end result tends to give an impression of company which is closed to the wider acceptance of shared technology, is not open to equivalent collaboration.

Moreover it has not considered the extra manufacturing resource which would need to assist two competing standards. According to New York Times, the iPhone 8 would be come at an entry-level of $999.

Media reports for last few months have repeatedly endorsed that the iPhone 8 would be selling in the $1,000 approximate and it appears that Apple would be keeping the price just $1 under this mark in an apparent marketing strategy.

Since Apple will probably deliver three storage tiers with the iPhone 8 generation, it would mean that the most expensive model would be priced at $1,200 and this would surely be a big price for a cellphone. Apple need to firmly deliver an outstanding iPhone 8 unit if it is to validate such a figure.

Apple Just Leaked a Key iPhone 8 Feature by Accident

iPhone

How a developer stumbled randomly over the new iPhone

A month before the official keynote of Apple, a developer stumbled over official details of the coming iPhone. The embarrassing thing: The Leak came this time from Apple itself.

When Guilherme Rambo saw the firmware of HomePod released by Apple, he initially thought of a mistake. The smart loudspeaker assistant finally comes to the market in December. Rambo's curiosity was aroused and he began to look at the code more closely. What he found, he probably expected at least: Apple's next iPhone.

While some details on Apple's high-end smartphone were already leaked, Rambo found more in the HomePod than rumors, he found Apple's own records of the greatest release in years. The code confirmed that the iPhone 8 or iPhone Pro - so exactly knows the name outside of Cupertino no one - would have a new design, a narrower frame, no home button, and a powerful facial recognition. The biggest Apple Leak comes for years - from Apple itself.

The firmware of the HomePod appeared a few days ago as an official Apple update. Rambo had just downloaded the code in the hope of finding interesting information about the Siri speaker when Apple noticed the error and took the code from the page. Like the iPhone, the HomePod runs on iOS. In itself is not noticeable, developers have access to the beta version of iOS 11 months ago. But Rambo, a Brazilian developer of an ecommerce company, made the decisive discovery: The released firmware was for iOS 11.0.2, two Update levels beyond the current state.

The code included some performance enhancements. Much more interesting, however, was that the update was not intended for the public. So Apple had not yet removed the mentions for unpublished devices - as well as the next iPhone, which will be released in September. It is a process that Apple goes through every year to ensure that developers can access iOS without experiencing anything about the new iPhone.

When he recognized the potential of his discovery, Rambo went to work. "I searched for lines in the firmware that confirm the alleged 'Face ID' feature," says Rambo. "I've searched for the word 'face' and noticed that it matches several icons in the BiometricKit, the Framework for Touch ID." These references do not actually exist in the iOS 11 beta.

Rambo was a bit big, he was safe, so he continued to search. As he walked through BiometricKit, he noticed that the terminology for adding a fingerprint ("EnrollTouchID") also had a counterpart for face recognition: EnrollPearlID. "Pearl ID" always appeared again, each time in connection with the topic of face recognition. Apple may like the face recognition to be quite different at the end, to call it "PearlID", but is not exactly a disguise tactics: "The code name makes it only easier to find all the appropriate code snippets in the operating system and see what function it has "Says Troughton-Smith. In other words, what Rambo had found was an unpublished, unannounced Apple feature.

Finding out what "Pearl ID" means, led to a much bigger find. "While I was looking for mentions of this 'Pearl ID' thing, I found a reference to Pearl-D22," says Rambo. "So I searched for D22 and discovered that this is the internal code name for the 'iPhone Pro' or 'iPhone 10'."

Although there are not very many mentions of D22, Apple leaves no doubt what the abbreviation means. How did Rambo get it? He found a file in the PassKit framework used by Wallet, named "Payment_glyph_phone-D22.caar". This is a file format in which Apple stores vector graphics for animated user interface elements. When Rambo read the picture, he saw an iPhone that he had never seen before. For the simple reason, because it does not yet exist.

Another mention of D22 resulted in a video file that was not present in the firmware, but the name "Enrollment_Tutorial_Loop-D22" indicates that it is a guide on how to register its face with Pearl ID. "There are also a few indications that the D22 model uses a new method to charge the battery," says Rambo. IOS 11.0.2 does not give any indication of what changes might be.

The extent of this leech is the biggest of its kind except for the premature debut of the iPhone 4 on Gizmodo. The minimal frame and the lack of the home button mark the biggest design change for years. And the FaceID feature seems to be a major consideration for the later presentation of the iPhone.

"Apple is now in a difficult situation," says Troughton-Smith. "It will surely cheer up many people internally that they themselves are the source of the only concrete leaks on design and functions." Apart from the disgrace, the impact on sales of the new iPhone will probably be rather small. "I believe that the people who hope for a new iPhone because of Leaks already know all the reports," says Jan Dawson, founder of the data analysis company Jackdaw Research. Dawnson notes that the revelation confirms existing rumors, but the real value is how well the new features work. A firmware has somewhere its limits.

Therefore, the biggest realization is that Apple's internal security has failed, as macOS Sierra days before the release already revealed the OLED TouchBar of the MacBook Pro. The current faux pas is even more striking. Apple expects more from the iPhone 8 than from the entire laptop line together. To see the details leak a month before the official revelation may end up causing financial damage. "We are watching an interruption in iPhone purchases, which is attributable to the increasingly frequent and early reports of future iPhones," said CEO Tim Cook in the past earnings call. This time, however, the blame hits nobody other than Apple itself.

Apple has Some iPhone Tricks Up Its Sleeve

Since the time of its invention, Apple products have always soared high and above and will continue to do it. With the market being competitive and lot of new launches, iPhone still is one of the highest selling phone worldwide with its customers ranging from everyone class and country. iPhones have developed a lot over the years with upgraded versions released every year.

Particularly its screen features and security features. Losing this gadget might be bit of a task with the multi layered security features it offers.

Rumours and rumours-

According to a lot of rumours, iPhone 8 may omit the fingerprint feature and add face recognition or camera sensing for the phone. It would definitely be a revolutionary update for the gadget.

There have been speculations of changing the screen technology too and make it more advanced, however the wait might be a little long. It would be worth the wait though. The new face recognition feature apparently works really fast and smooth, strengthening the security features of the phone by three folds.
iPhone

Another exclusive feature Apple OS introducing is OLED. This would mean the screen would be more advanced, colourful and better graphics. Mostly every iPhone to be released will have this feature. It is another advancement towards Apple’s adventure.

The next update would be coming from the news app by Apple. Now publishers have the freedom to post their own ads on the news app, making it more user friendly and flexible. This would leave to newer and broader perspectives and opportunity of more competition and advancements for other companies too.

Apple products, specially the latest in the queue, iPhone 8 has a lot of surprises in store for their customers with updates which may leave people astonished. The surprises will hopefully be for the better and worth the damage done financially. The legendary technological inventions- Apple has tough competitors but it doesn't seem to be of the type which would lose the game so soon. Instead it will attack back with better plans.

The newest addition of face recognition is perhaps the best. It will create the usual excitement among customers who are eager to explore the new features and own the smart gadget. iPhone 8 will have state of the art technology and updates and of course the superior camera features that it boasts of since its invention.

Apple will keep progressing and even though the prices may soar, the people who are regular iPhone fanatics will do invest in buying them with blind faith. After all, the features do get better with time and last a long-lasting life.

Apple Leak 'Confirms' iPhone 8 is Massive

Apple iPhone 8: Display with mega resolution


This year it has Apple has to celebrate the release of iPhone 8! This cries formally after a glorious keynote with features that the world has not yet seen. Especially Samsung has done with the Galaxy S8. As always, Apple remains silent, of course. Luckily there are the rumors and talkative suppliers: These sources provide daily information on the iPhone 8. When it comes? For mid-September, many Apple employees have received a holiday lock - this could be a hint.

And apropos Samsung Galaxy S8: A first comparison with Samsung's super smartphone is already there. The hitherto most pertinent reports: Foxconn employees have talked on reddit times really from the sewing box, a supplier has confirmed a wireless shop and first sharp pictures of the new iPhones have dived. Macmyth.com bursts through the rumors and collects all news about the hottest smartphone of the year - the Apple iPhone 8.

All rumors about the iPhone 8:


June 23, 2017: Gigantic Resolution?

Forbes reports that the display of the iPhone 8 is not only huge but also extremely high resolution. According to the report, the upcoming Apple smartphone will offer 2800x1342 pixels. For comparison, the iPhone 7 Plus brings it to 1920x1080 pixels.

Behind such a resolution, however, is actually a plan stuck - because only for the display of existing apps the display would be completely overqualified. A new VR or AR function is therefore possible in combination with VR glasses - because at low resolutions one sees in this situation every pixel. If the rumors, the iPhone 8 could turn out to be a real VR-cracker


June 19, 2017: Protective glass confirms design



It seems safe: The iPhone 8 has (almost) no edge around the display. This is confirmed not only by all rumors almost in unison, but also manufacturers of accessories jump on the train. The British dealer MobileFun has offered a protective glass for the iPhone 8 for a few days. Although the device is not yet on the market, you are obviously sure that the thick edge only a small area for cameras and speakers remains. If we assume that the dealer does not produce the product for the ton, then the display of the iPhone 8 is really a real eye-catcher.

iPhone 8: Design


For three years, Cupertino has been content with the iPhone-6 design and only made tiny changes during this time. No wonder that there are now much more modern devices in the Android camp. Apple would, in any case, reduce the border - both at the sides as well as above and below. Because even if the iPhone 7 looks like a modern smartphone: the front shows too little display.

In addition to this, Twitter user KK Sneak Leaks uploaded pictures of the "finished" iPhone 8 and showed that the display shows the entire front face, the home button virtually disappears behind glass and distracts nothing from the screen. A similar theory is behind the dummy of Benjamin Geskin, which according to own data shows an (empty) model of Foxconn.

There is also no touch-ID sensor on the back and the display covers the entire front. The latest images are currently available at reddit and Geskin, both of which match the rumors so far: more front-panel display and a clean back. And the touch-ID sensor? This could actually wander in the power button if one looks at this patent.

iPhone 8: Hardware


As far as the hardware is concerned, the rumored kitchen simmers slowly. It is almost certain that Apple is again switching the processor and for the iPhone 8 with the Apple A11. This should be a 10-nanometer-FinFET-CPU, which uses less electricity due to its new architecture and works more efficiently. In the battle for minutes, the A11 would thus be an important building block - even if the batteries are reported to grow significantly.

With a new Logic Board, the iPhone-7-Plus battery should fit into the smaller case and the 5.5-inch model will provide even more power. Together with an OLED screen, a two-day running time seems to be within reach. To round off this idea, other rumors and the statement of an insider attest to the iPhone 8 finally also cable chargers. Like the Apple Watch, the rechargeable battery is also inductive. The memory of the iPhone 8 is still a maximum of 256 gigabytes.

Still a good news: Presumably, the outdated 32 gigabytes versions from the iPhone 8 are a thing of the past and the entry starts at 64 gigabytes. In terms of memory, it is probably at 3 gigabytes, however, iOS in everyday life has not yet shown by its sluggish side. Another exciting rumor: Forbes reported that the display resolution is huge 2800x1342 pixels - that would be more than twice as sharp, as is currently the case with the iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 8: Cameras


Main attention of a smartphone is generally the snaps. In the iPhone 7, Apple already installed the sometimes best mobile cameras on the market, the iPhone 8 is probably already something again. According to rumors, the cameras offer an optical image stabilization and may even allow 3D effects in photos. There should also be new developments in the arrangement of the lenses, which are in the iPhone 8 one under the other instead of next to each other - the at least a user claims on Twitter, which wants to upload real pictures. Other rumors confirm this regularly.

Has Apple for the Friends of Selfies on the iPhone 8 an ace in the sleeve - is it really a special feature? A new system consisting of three modules supports 3D capabilities that allow, for example, recordings for augmented or virtual reality (AR / VR) or iris unlocking. There are hardly any rumors about the megapixel number of both cameras; Fortunately, this idle discussion has now moved into the background.
Apple iPhone X: design study in retro style

iPhone 8 Connections: Does USB-C?


The "Wall Street Journal" wants to know from a well-informed source that Apple is thinking about a farewell to Lightning. Therefore, instead of a USB-C socket. Whether the change already on the iPhone 8 comes to bear, is questionable.

Only recently, the AirPods were released and put on Lightning as a charging port. Therefore it is probably - if at all - only at the iPhone 9 or iPhone 10 so far. Logically, the change would be nevertheless, because in particular users of several Apple devices, such as a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, do not currently have the possibility to use the included Lightning headphones also on the Mac - a mistake in the otherwise interlocking product range, not from Duration. On the other hand, internal sources say that it remains with Lightning.

iPhone 8 & 7S: How many iPhones will it be?


The fact that the iPhone 8 may appear as a very special smartphone, insiders and experts agree. Only under what designation Apple introduces the particularly expensive and noble mobile phone, the spirits separate. In addition to the iPhone 8, the names "Anniversary Edition" and "iPhone X" - both are references to the 10th anniversary of the brand. A Japanese website brings another option into play:

One wants to have found out that Apple the mobile phone under the label "iPhone Edition" issues. This is not a fake, but the most expensive version of the Apple Watch came with this name. Does Apple really release three smartphones, most of which customers do not want to have two? What would an iPhone 7S if there were the successor at the same time? Does this point remain unclear until the day of the keynote?

iPhone 8: Release


And when the new models come - when is it time? September, you should think. But other rumors start from two events this year. So the iPhone Edition is not to appear with the other two iPhone-7S models in the autumn, but by solo appearance at the end of the year, possibly in November. The reason for this may be that the development of the smartphone is not completed.

According to the report, Apple is still experimenting with several prototypes to find out which is best suited for mass production. These should include devices with LCD and AMOLED display as well as variants with aluminum, glass and ceramic housing.

BusinessInsider reports that the financial experts published a report starting from a 2018 release in early May. Based on the details of ValueWalk, the shift is as follows: Apple plans for the iPhone 8 numerous new functions and a fresh design. The parts for the assembly are however not available in sufficient number so that Apple is not able to build by the end of the year enough iPhones of the next generation. Instead, it gives the iPhone 7S, so more time to work on the iPhone 8. But can Apple really miss the anniversary? Probably would be an announcement in September despite all circumstances, but very long delivery times. So, everything is open.

iPhone 8: Price


That does not sound good at all. The Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski reports that the iPhone 8 could become the most expensive smartphone of the company's history. Keep it right, then the iPhone appears only with 128 GB or 256 GB, so that all entry-level variants were dropped. The prices of the devices count with 999 US dollar and 1.099 US dollar - that would be 25 percent surcharge! In the USA, the price for the entry-level model would, therefore, be the first time in the four-digit range. Currently, the iPhone 7 with 128 GB of memory there costs 749 US dollars. Applying the percentage price increases of the US dollar prices would be on the price tag of the iPhone 8 with 128 GB of memory an amount of approximately 1,100 euros.

Will iPhone 8 reposition its finger print sensor in the power button?

iPhone 8
The Internet is going haywire over this question and there are reasons enough for doing so. Speculations over the repositioning of the finger print sensor in the new iPhone 8 were rife with two positions contending for the top spot; just below the display or on the back. Many experts seemed to have overlooked that there was a third option available and it seems like Apple have gone for that option as well.

How can we say so?

A new patent has been granted to Apple that has the illustration of an iPhone that is edge-to-edge stretched and has a finger print sensor imprinted on the power button located on top of the iPhone. Although it was earlier speculated that Apple will release its new iPhone 8 with an edge-to-edge design it was hardly anticipated that it would also relocate its finger print sensor on top of the phone. Rumors were doing the rounds about the new position which was expected to be at the back of the phone accommodating an edge-to-edge display but the third possibility seemed to have excluded everybody’s imagination and that can be another reason why Apple has gone with the third option. We all know how the company loves to have an element of surprise and that has also proved to be successful from their perspective.

But there are conflicting reports…

..about the location of the finger print sensor which serves as a touch identification function and is also deemed to be located exactly where it was in the previous models, at the bottom separated from the display. According to experts and leakers associated with Apple, the company will not change the position of the finer print sensor which has been so successful over the years and the officials do not want to experiment with something that has been so much approved by the users over the years.

The other contending position is also in the league with a group of experts going with that option. They suggest that the sensor will be relocated at the back of the phone’s body just beneath their iconic Apple logo.
Although the patent indicates otherwise

The patent which Apple had filed in the last month of the previous year clearly indicates that they want to relocate the sensor somewhere not seen before in other smartphones. The pushbutton was only button that has functioned to turn the phone ON and OFF over the years of smartphone evolution. Now Apple seeks to imbibe the functionality of the power button in a whole new sense by placing the finger print sensor on it.

This means that the power button functions dually as a Touch ID function and that the users will have to use the button more often than they used to earlier. The sensor sits cleanly at the top with a layer of sapphire or glass covering it from above. The finger print sensor is most likely to get thinner and hence users will have to roll their fingers over it.

iPhone 8 Photos Gets Leaked Suggesting a Redesigned Look

iPhone 8 Photo
iPhone 8 based rumors and reports doesn’t seem to die anytime soon. This being one of the most eagerly awaited gadgets to be unveiled this year has left everyone wishing for something extraordinary. It might come as surprise that the images leaked can turn out to be the very first images of the iPhone 8. Samsung has simply gone ahead with revamping the complete design for the S8 which shows a definite departure from its stable design present in almost every high Samsung gadgets. Apple is also working on the same lines as per the images where a prototype of the handset is shown having a redesigned look.

Reveals from the new images

The pictures made available in the online forums shows the primary hardware for the upcoming iPhone 8. Quite interesting it retains the structure of the iPhone 7 and other who came before it as it offers the similar volume button along with the rounded rectangular design and the power switch. Nothing has changed on this level but a lot of effort has gone towards the extending the length of the device at its sides.

The prominent design change which reflects from the picture is the presence of the long camera hole which now stretches right down the phone. With the launch of the iPhone 6S Apple first brought the large oval opening for the camera as it helped in keeping the dual lens camera setup in the efficient fashion. However in the pictures it can be easily seen that Apple has rotated them to a certain extent so they move down the phone.

Quite interestingly in the images it has been seen that there is no Apple logo present at the back of the phone. In the prototype usually the logo is not present which a norm is but this also helps in pointing fingers at the legitimacy of the images. Secondly Apple would never bow down from retaining the iconic branding on its premier flagship smartphone devices at all. When it comes to thinness, thickness and dimensions this new iPhone happens to be of same physical dimension as seen on the iPhone 7. It is also being speculated that Apple will be following the Samsung lead by bringing a similar edge-to-edge display on its iPhone.

Most of the times the images posted in the online forums and websites tend to end up as being fan made or artistic images. But rumors are strong that this particular set of images happens to be the true prototype though legitimacy is highly questionable.

All these pictures might be a hoax

For all those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming iPhone 8 should understand that Apple has not yet revealed any information or pictures for this product and these images are likely to merge as hoax in next few months. Apple will be unveiling the new iPhone along with other gadgets in September if the development of the new gadgets doesn’t get delayed in between.

New iPhone 8 Details Reveal Impressive Advanced Technology

iPhone 8
Credit: Oscar Luna Martinez
Apple’s famous rival has already launched its flagship devices for this year’s sales but Apple is quiet about the development made into the creation of next iPhone 8. Samsung has been smart in launching the Galaxy S8 with a revamped refreshing design and thereby gets the advantage of getting into the market first. However Apple is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that iPhone 8 remains the elite device for the consumers to purchase during the last quarter of this year.

Removal of iconic physical home button

Samsung has simply paved way for the Apple to ditch the physical button with the launch of the Galaxy S8. Apple is certainly expected the follow the lead with the removal of the physical home button in the iPhone 8 as per the rumors. And once Apple does it then it will become a trend for other mobile OEMs to follow in the upcoming days but Apple is known for giving a huge boost on its each move. Removing the button will not be a simple affair rather Apple is working towards bringing such a technology which brings more features and functionalities right to the screen to compensate for the removal.

Fingerprint sensor will move away from the front

With Galaxy S8 Samsung has removed the fingerprint sensor from top to the bottom of the device by placing it right beside the camera. Though this move is bit awkward and it will take considerable before one gets accustomed to it. Apple has worked all the year to bring a credible solution for this as per the rumors where fingerprint scanning functionality will be embedded right beneath the touch screen.

Curve design to debut on iPhone

It might appear that Apple is simply ripping off all the important design elements of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in its upcoming iPhone 8. But it is other way around. Reports have already in the media for past six detailing most of the advancement and dramatic design which is expected to be implemented on the upcoming device. Samsung is just reaping the benefit of coming in the market first which such a kind of device.

Apple has worked in close association with a number of suppliers to come with an advanced curved display which works in sync with its homegrown technologies. iPhone 8 will certainly embrace the curved display trend which was pioneered by the Samsung but it will be completely optimized for the iOS platform to lend a completely new persona.

iPhone set to feature a new Touch ID sensor

Apple will be bringing a different style of TouchID sensor for the iPhone 8. Earlier it has been widely reported that Apple is planning to do away with the iconic physical home button with the use of ‘discrete ultrasonic transducers’.

Apple Next iPhone Will Have Curved Screen

iPhone
Apple iPhone 8 rumors don’t tend to go down at all. The latest news has emerged from a reputable media house i.e. The Wall Street Journal which reported that iPhone will opt for a flexible display. It has been found that Apple has placed a huge order for flexible display for its mass production of the iPhone 8. Apple has been closely studying the flexible OLED displays for over a year and it has asked the supplier to furnish prototypes for further research and compatibility with the next iPhone.

If rumors turned out to be true then Apple iPhone will start offering direct competition to the Samsung top end Galaxy S Edge series. Samsung was first major OEM to bring curved screen on a flagship device with the launch of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Apple testing multiple prototypes

A number of reports has are emerging from varied corners which are suggesting that Apple is investing its time in testing multiple prototypes for its iPhone 8. Apple is simply looking for the best prototype which brings the amalgamation of screen technology and material into the play for its iPhone 8.

Some proptypes makes use of the traditional LCD display while other others boast of OLED & AMOLED. Quite incidentally some of the prototypes don’t even have the classic home button which has become a staple design feature for the iPhones. Apple is performing high end testing of these displays for the glass, aluminum and ceramic chassis.

Enhanced storage for next iPhone

Another rumor has highlighted the fact Apple is considering to release just two models for the iPhone 8 with large storage capability of 64 GB and 128 GB. This means that iPhone will come at a price-tag of anywhere above $1000.

Just few months ditched the 16GB iPhone when it released the iPhone 7 with the smallest storage option set at 32 GB. It is likely that Apple will continue to follow the suit with setting 64GB at next new base line for the storage option on the iPhone lineup. Rumors related to iPhone 8 are so disparate that one suggests we will get to see three new iPhone models featuring 4.7 inch, 5.5 inch and 5.8 inch version while another suggests that there will be only two devices with 4.7 and 5.5 inch like before.

Like every year Apple next iPhone will be unveiled in the month of September where Cupertino based tech firm will finally showcase what it has been cooking all the year round. One should not forget that this year will be the 10th anniversary for the iconic device of this modern age and Apple will certainly want to bring something new on the plate for the fans and consumers alike.

Better view with bigger size 

Recently, Kuo revealed some of the features of this brand new Apple device, one of them being super compact design. He revealed, that iPhone 8 will have a 5 inch display, but will not be larger than their 4.7 inch phones. This is a standout feature considered to be extremely modern, and has been used till date in the monster phablets. The compact size will make it handy and easily usable with one hand. Apple is going to achieve this look of a 5 inch display in a 4.7 inch phone by cutting the bottom and top bezels.

The extra space available in most modern Smartphone is practically of no use and thus Apple has decided to use that extra space and create a screen extension. The touch ID and iconic home button will be removed and integrated within the display. Well, this technology is not entirely new and was announced by LG in 2016, but Apple seems to have accomplished it before them.

Improved battery performance 

Kuo also revealed that this high tech phone will feature a 2,700 MaH battery. It is almost 30% larger than iPhone 7’s 1960 maH battery. The phone will squeeze in this battery using a logic board design, and thus by using this board there will be extra space for fitting in this bigger battery.

Although, Samsung a rival company of Apple has already launched phone with 3000 maH, iOS has always managed to get away with small batteries. This new iPhone launch will feature an OLED display instead of the standard LCD and is sure to offer a better and enhanced experience.

Major leap for Apple 

Both externally and internally, iPhone 8 is being considered to be the biggest update in Apple’s history. According to speculations, this new gadget will be names iPhone X and its launch will mark the 10th anniversary of iPhone.

iPhone 7s Said to Keep Aluminum Design as iPhone 8 Gets Glass With Stainless Steel Frame

iPhone 8
Apple is all set to launch the next generation of iPhone this year after being snubbed for not-so innovative iPhone 7 last year. For this year Apple will be launching iPhone with 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen only. The smaller version will possess the usual aluminum casing while 5.5 inch will come with an undisclosed material while the all new 5.8 inch model will boasts a stainless steel frame. This has been reported by DigiTimes which is Taiwanese and it is known for keeping a tight tab on the Apple’s supply chain.

Not one or two but three iPhones this year

Apple is set to release three different iPhone this year which has taken everyone by surprise. This report is being attributed to sources right from the upstream supply chain. The largest 5.8 new model of the iPhone will feature the Samsung popular OLED display which can easily take the price of this smartphone shooting over $1000.

Apple opting for the OLED display is a smart choice as OLED is praised for its better color accuracy, wider viewing angles, faster response times as well as improvement in image sharpness. The three devices are being rumored to be iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 or Apple might go with the iPhone X. Apple is simply keep the tradition intact regardless of the snubbing by launching the upgraded variant of the iPhone 7 along with iPhone 8 this year.

Two actual scenarios which rumor suggests

The first scenario which very likely to play out in future is that Apple will opt for an edge to edge OLED display for its next iPhone range. It will also come loaded with the wireless charging capability and there will be an incremental upgrade to the screen size from traditional 4inch to 4.7 inch display. While the 5.5 inch iPhones will go with the usual LCD display and aluminum design.

The second scenario is that Apple will go on adding lass casing as well as wireless charging for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7s models. Certainly this device will still feature the OLED display along with the much needed longer battery life. Thereby the traditional aluminum design will be left only on the older range of iPhone lineup while the entire latest model from 2017 onwards will opt for the OLED display as well as stainless steel frame.

Over the last couple of weeks a large number of rumors has emerged which showcases a wide number of features which will found on the next iPhone. Apple is expected to remove the iconic home button, 3D camera features, substantial increase in the internal storage space, iris or facial recognition technology along with an improved IP68-rate water resistance.

Though Apple like always has not made any official confirmation for the upcoming features and all of these can be regarded as a mere speculation. Apple will start the production for the next iPhone by next quarter and it will be unveiled in September as always.

iPhone 8 Concept Shows Off Display Covering Entire Front of iPhone

 
iPhone 8
When it comes to standards of making mobile devices, Apple has set the bar pretty high year after year with their iPhone series. With its 10th Anniversary coming up, Apple is set to release its latest addition to the already glistening career of iPhones, the iPhone 8. Mobile geeks and tech enthusiasts from around the world have begun their speculation of what features would the new iPhone 8 have and how would it be different from its previous versions.

What can be expected from the new iPhone?

ConceptsiPhone has recently released a video detailing out the possible design that the new iPhone can have. The most eye catching feature that the video has is the display of the new iPhone, which covers the entire front of the device. Many reports suggest that the iPhone 8 will move towards an all glass design feature straying away from the usual metallic design they implement. However with the new iPhone 8 commercial, it can be seen that the new device will have a similar design as compared to iPhone 7 plus in addition to many newer features.

Apart from these features, the new iPhone 8 shown in the advertisement does not stray away from its original design that has been the company’s pride for many years. The volume button and the side switch designs are influenced by the original iPhone 4 models and a rounded metal frame falsifying the rumor about the new device being made in an iPhone 4 style.

A unique feature that the iPhone 8 can have is the dynamic Home button which performs similar function like the MacBook pro touch bar. However the biggest visual change in the 10th anniversary iPhone would be the use of a curved screen that uses OLED technology. This would mark the first time that an iPhone has a curved screen.

The iPhone 8 will be facing a tough competition with its release as Samsung and Google both are releasing their newest devices at the same time iPhone comes out. To keep its new innovation a step ahead, Apple has implemented an edge-to-edge display that does away with top and bottom bezels and holds features like Touch ID fingerprinting and front facing camera. The touch ID and the camera may be built directly into the display!
Special feature: Wireless charging

The new iPhone is rumored to have a state of the art long range wireless charging system, a first for any iPhone device. Long range wireless charging is superior to other wireless charging systems as it does not require your device to be in close proximity of the charging source.

The news of release of iPhone 8 has indeed caused a lot of stir and with tons of rumors and speculations flying around regarding its features and design. But all we can do is wait for Apple to officially release the iPhone 8 which is sure to be a popular indeed as it has been for many years.

Apple iPhone 8 To Have All Glass Front and Back, Stainless Steel Frame?


iPhone 8
After being snubbed by the fans and critics with lackluster launch of the iPhone 7 which offered a minor upgrade over the iPhone 6s. Apple has decided to do away with ‘S’ model release this year and it is gearing up to launch iPhone 8 during the third quarter of 2017. Rumors mills are working overtime to come up with new insights into the iPhone 8 and this time it points towards a steel frame centre with all glass based rear and front for upcoming device. This means that Apple will do away with the aluminum frame which was seen on its last range of iPhones.

Going with ‘Steel’

This isn’t the first time Apple is going to use steel in the iPhone and it was last seen in the Apple iPhone 4S models. Since then Apple has opted for the aluminum finish for its iPhone range. In another rumor it was confirmed that one of the Apple’s manufacturing partner named Jabil is secretly working on the device body which will have two reinforced glass panels. The steel frame will be utilized to hold the two pieces of glass panels together.

Apple is also being criticized for not offering enough innovation on the table when compared to its rivals after the demise of Jobs. Though Apple has brought Airpods which is a wireless earphones but it doesn’t ranks high in terms of innovation. The subsequent release of the iPhone models are also not so great in terms of innovation when Sony, Samsung and some of the Chinese rivals are bring new hype worthy devices from their stable. Apple is decisively looking for ways of cutting through the competition and brings innovation back in the play by throwing everything in the development of the iPhone 8.

Next generation iPhone 8 to be bold

The new iPhone 8 is expected to sport a new bold design language along with a bezel less OLED display. Samsung will be providing the OLED display panels for this new phone which will render extremely stunning, crisp and beautiful resolution to the users. Apple generates a major portion of its revenue from the sales of iPhone devices. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S were highly successful device from Apple in recent years in terms of number of shipments. iPhone 7 failed to generate enthusiasm and with its slow sales Apple has decided to completely overhaul the design for iPhone 8.

Some of media reports suggests that Apple will be bringing a larger device this time around apart from its usual offering in 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch Plus models. Since the size will be larger so would be the price for the device. With iPhone 7 Apple ditched the 3.5 mm headphone jack and compensated it with Airpods- awireless earphone- which has to be bought separately. Secondly Apple is still fine tuning the performance of the Airpods resulting in missing the Christmas and New Year sales season. Rumors also suggests a sleeker design with invisible home button and wireless charging capability.

Foxconn Tests Wireless Charging for iPhone 8

Foxconn

It has just few weeks since Apple has launched the iPhone 7 which has left a number of fans and critics unhappy with the end product. Still that has not made any dent in the Apple’s iPhone sales which is going off the shelves within a week of its launch at varied markets across the globe. A slew of rumors have started circulating about iPhone 8 and one of which proudly proclaims that it will feature an advanced wireless charging capability. One of the main manufacturing partners of Apple namely Foxconn is effectively working on developing wireless charging modules for the next year’s iPhone iteration.

Apple isn’t the first OEM to experiment with wireless charging

Wireless charging isn’t a bright new concept or other OEMs have not experimented with it at all. Rather it was the Samsung which first brought the wireless charging support in the flagship devices just a few years ago. But given the fact that this will be the first time that iPhone will feature the wireless charging support has helped in creating a buzz among the fans and critics. Among the range of Apple products only Apple Watch has so far made use of the wireless charging technology. It is worth noting that Apple has been hiring a number of engineers right from the wireless charging technologies in order to bring a more secured and effective wireless charging capability to its range of devices.

Foxconn on other hand tried to subdue the rumors by stating that it has already strated manufacturing the wireless charging modules for iPhone 8 but it shouldn’t be taken as a sign it will be brought right into the commercial version of the device. The possible inclusion of the wireless charging capability to the iPhone will depend upon the rate at which Foxconn can increase its yield or wireless charging itself works in the most user friendly manner.

Apple will release an OLED-based iPhone next year

Several reports have emerged in the past couple of months which has hinted towards the possible utilization of OLED based display for upcoming iPhone. These reports have stated in detail that front face of the device will be covered in glass which will allow users to tap even around the screen. The Touch ID finger print sensor will be placed right below the display screen or in simple words it will be artistically baked into the glass.

No confirmation has been made by the Apple regarding the possible use of OLED panels in iPhone 8. But the president of Sharp has accidently leaked this by speaking with the students at the Tating University where he specifically mentioned that even iPhone is moving towards OLED panels. However he didn’t say whether Apple is buying its OLED panels or not for the iPhone 8. Bringing OLED screen to the iPhone will not just bring a better and brighter display to the consumers but it also help in keeping the device sleek and slim.
