8 of the Best iPhone 8 Rumours

September is nearly upon is, which means one thing: the age of a new iPhone. Rumours, leaks and predictions have been in circulation for a while now, so we’ve rounded up 8 of the best for you:

1. Apple accidentally confirm new larger sizing

Apple’s HomePod beta code was uncovered by developer Steve Troughton-Smith, accidentally uncovering a wealth of product roadmap information. Troughton Smith outlined the entire screen points metrics in his tweet, suggesting that thee iPhone’s 4.7-inch display will jump to a  5.8-inch sizing.

2. Major display updates

We could be expecting a curved edge-to-edge OLED display with True Tone technology and/or Ion-X glass to feature on the latest devices. Sources from Bloomberg also suggest that bezels will be reduced with the iPhone 8′s screen covering almost the entire front of the device.

3. Apple Pencil

The Apple Pencil has proven such a huge hit with the iPad Pro, that it is likely to be supported on the iPhone 8. Dubbed as ‘versatile Apple Pencil is the best tool to reach for when you need pixel‑perfect precision’ this addition will be a designers dream.


4. The end of Touch ID

Combine the increased screen size and rumours of Apple’s success Face ID and we are left with the conclusion that the Touch ID Home button will be a thing of the past. Reports are suggesting that the 5.8-inch iPhone will rely solely on facial/iris recognition.

5. Improved water resistance

“Apple’s iPhone 8 will feature the IP68 rating protection as part of drastic upgrades marking the 10th anniversary of the iPhone this year,” an industry source told The Investor (Part of the Korea Herold)  This will mean the device could be immersed in water for longer and at greater depths.

6. Vertical Dual Cameras

We have seen many leaked images suggesting that the iPhone 8 will offer dual cameras arranged vertically with an LED flash in the middle.

Further information from the Fast Company suggests that Apple is working hard to add a rear-facing 3D laser system to the back of a future iPhone, enabling better depth detection for augmented reality apps, and a more accurate type of autofocus for photography.

7. Wireless Charing support

A sound file hidden in the iOS 11 beta, as well as a mention of inductive charging in Apple’s HomePod software all but confirms an introduction of wireless charging for the next flagship device.

8. Improved battery life

A new report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo indicates that the iPhone 8 could feature longer battery life. The report hints at the switch to a stacked mainboard internal design, opening up extra room for a larger capacity iPhone 8 battery. Apple may also phase out the lightning port with the iPhone 8, switching to USB-C.
