Flicking or swiping gestures could replace the home button function, enabling the handset face to appear nearly all-screen. The analysts predict that the company could offer a one-year free Apple Music subscription as well as 200GB iCloud free storage.
Additionally the iPhone 8 is set to include True Tone Display technology, a functionality that adapts the smartphone's screen to the lighting in the room, that was first featured in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. However, Apple is said to be having trouble with working on the screen, unlike Samsung. However, this is where things become challenging for the company.
Most significantly, Apple is expected to add LTE connectivity to its wearable, marking the first time the Apple Watch can truly be independent of your iPhone.
It's all out! The latest leak shows Apple's plans to change the way you use the next iPhone.
Since Samsung can manufacture and supply such panels in large quantities and maintain a very high-quality standard of components, Apple needs to compensate Samsung by paying extra for this display.
LG Display and Japan Display now don't possess the machinery and resources necessary to produce an adequate number of display units for future mobile phones.
While the three new iPhones will likely hog much of the spotlight on Tuesday, there's other new hardware to look forward to, including what is likely a new Apple Watch.
Without a doubt, the most anticipated launch is that of the iPhone 8. These rumours gained impedance when the 3D sensing modules of the iPhone 8 were leaked. New features such as facial recognition and AR support are expected to be perceived as gimmicks and are highly unlikely to be a huge selling point. The iPhone X will come with an always-on display, a feature which is expected from Google's upcoming flagship device Pixel 2.
There's an A9 processor in the iPhone 6s and an A10 Fusion in the iPhone 7, so it doesn't take a genius to predict that the iPhone 8 will get an A11, or maybe A11 Fusion.
It's unclear which of the new features will be exclusively linked to the iPhone X, which the Verge noted is expected to cost around $US1000 ($1241) and may be delayed due to supply shortages. As for the new resolution, we believe we'll see 1125×2436 based on this firmware. As showcased at Apple's WWDC 2017 earlier this year, iOS 11 comes with a wide range of new features and UI improvements over the current iteration.
We understand that the iPhone 8 will come with 3GB of RAM, like the iPhone 7 Plus.
One of the most noticeable deviations for the iPhone 8 from the previous gen iPhones is going to its design.
