There is a lot going on at Apple these days and we’re soon going to have a bundle of new releases from the major smartphone provider of the world. Be it a new macbook, iOS 11, or the flagship iPhone 8, Apple is coming up with something for everyone. And, September is not far away so it’s just a little wait that we have to do before we could be able to put our hands on some of the exciting new releases.
Despite all the new offerings, most of the talk is about the upcoming iPhone model which is going to be the Apple’s major release on the 10th anniversary of iPhones. There will be 3 phones that Apple is expected to release, but the major focus is on what we presumably say is going to be iPhone 8. So, let’s explore all that we have learned so far about the iPhone 8 and find out what new changes can be expected with the new iPhone.
1. It’s Going To Be A Bezelless Design
iPhones usually come with thick and big borders on their top as well as on the bottom. These borders, also called bezels, are there to accommodate earpiece, home button, front cam and different sensors that accompany the phone. But the new possible design that is floating around on the internet, and is depicted on Apple Pit, seems to bring edge-to-edge screen and we can expect that Apple has now decided to let bezels go and introduce an all-new look to their most important iPhone of the year.
2. Apple’s New iPhone Might Take Augmented Reality To The Next Level
Though we have some AR platforms around already with the likes of Google Tango and Microsoft Hololens, but what Apple is introducing seems to be more realistic in bringing virtual objects in the real world – and that too without any kind of special hardware whatsoever. If you’d like to believe the rumors, upcoming iPhone is expected to have rear-facing 3D laser system to offer better depth detection.
Though the developers have not yet found any conclusive evidence about this rear-mounted sensor and they believe the infrared cam on the front might be playing a role with Apple’s AR technology.
3. There Are Hints Of Apple Introducing Wireless Charging In Upcoming iPhone
Amongst the first few rumors that popped out initially about the iPhone 8, one suggested that it will feature wireless charging. According Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities, this feature is coming with the new iPhone from Apple. Remember that Kuo maintains good credibility in coming up with authentic predictions regarding Apple.
In recent researches on iOS 11 code, a sound file was discovered which is believed to contain the sound that would be produced by the new iPhone when put on the inductive charging. Besides, a new charging icon has also been discovered in relation to upcoming iPhone as well.
4. Can’t Say Yet If The New iPhone Will Feature Touch ID Or Not
There were rumors that Apple will be getting rid of Touch ID and that it will be replaced with Facial Recognition. There were also rumors that Touch ID might go to the back of the new iPhone but will still be there. Then some suggested that it will go under the display. But, to be honest, these are all rumors and no conclusive evidence has been found yet about any of these. So, we might have to wait a bit more to find out about the fate of the Touch ID in Apple’s flagship iPhone.
5. What About A Split Status Bar?
Well, the new design of the upcoming iPhone that is circulating around suggests that the status bar will be split into two. However, it has been revealed that the two halves of the status bar will be interactive. So, we’ll have to wait and find out what kind of experience this new iPhone is going to offer to the users – especially, the new split status bar.
So, that’s all we’ve got for now on the upcoming iPhone 8 and the changes that the new iPhone is expected to come up with. If you want to find out more on iPhone 8 or any of the latest from Apple, stay tuned!
