The iPhone 8 reportedly swaps the home button for gesture controls


One aspect that didn't make the cut, though, is the home button - a staple of the iPhone since it first hit the market in 2007 - according to Bloomberg. It's a pressure-sensitive sensor with a "taptic engine" that simulates the feeling of a pushed button. We guarantee that regardless of where the press conference will take place, Apple already knows exactly what date it will unveil its new iPhone and Apple Watch lineup. IDC sees iPhone shipments rising 9.1% in 2018 after the iPhone 8, 7S and 7S Plus models are released.

Not only do current OLED screens outperform the image quality of LCD displays, but the screen technology will be more efficient, allowing Apple to bring Always-on display features and even a true dark mode to the iPhone.

Users will be able to drag the software bar into the middle of the phone screen - or flick up to open a multitasking screen, the sources suggest.

Apple can't seem to keep much about the iPhone 8 a secret, but until now it was unclear how users will actually move around the interface. Rumors claim that the company will be moving the fingerprint sensor at the back of the device, just like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo - who has a long track record of accurate predictions of Apple products - predicts the phone will have a revolutionary 3D sensing camera for facial recognition, which will work with Apple's new augmented reality software. Given that the function area has more reliable sources, we're doubtful for today's image. Apple has a one year low of $102.53 and a one year high of $163.12. The group "Wireless Power Consortium" developed the Qi standard, which is the standard commonly used for wireless charging technology. Let's hope Apple doesn't pull this again with its new phone. The screen will stretch around the side of the earpiece speaker, a design that Apple insiders are calling "ears", the report said. For starters, the smartphone will feature an OLED display, a later first for the lineup. The iPhone 8 will be one hell of a smartphone, if a device's worth is gauged in terms of upgrades.

I don't think the concept of a premium iPhone will be a one-off - I expect Apple to release relatively high-priced iPhone models each year with features that are too costly, or that simply can not yet be manufactured in high volumes, for the mainstream iPhone models at mainstream price points. And when it comes to a new iPhone, the world just can not wait to get their hands on the latest iOS mobile phones.
