The iPhone 8 is coming! What can we expect?

18th May 2017
The iPhone 8 is coming! What can we expect?

It is looking very likely that we will see the iPhone 8 out this year! What can we expect from Apple's new device?

Happy 10th anniversary iPhone!

2017 is the tenth anniversary of the iPhone which was released on June 29th in 2007. Whilst a name hasn’t been officially confirmed by Apple, there are strong rumours that it is likely to be called the iPhone 8. Pictured is a render of what the iPhone 8 might look like, but there has been no renders or images officially released by Apple as yet.

Apple are rumoured to be working on three different sized of their next iPhone and it has been suggested that the new iPhone 8 will be 5.8 inches.

Made of glass?

According to various independent reports, the iPhone 8 is said to feature a bold contemporary design with a stainless-steel frame between two 2.5D glass panels.

With regards to design, it has been reported that the new iPhone will be an all-glass version which will be slightly heavier than more traditional phones made of aluminium but its AMOLED panel which is much thinner and lighter will more than compensate for that.

The face of the iPhone 8 is expected to feature a new OLED display with a screen-to-body ratio even more impressive than the 83% ratio managed by Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. This will reportedly be achieved in part by shifting around the device’s internal components, but also by completely removing the iPhone’s physical home button

Bezel free?

Early indicators show that one of the iPhone 8 prototypes features a curved OLED display which has almost no bezels which is like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

If this is the case, then we can expect to see some alterations with regards to the overall design to the new device. Apple have not commented on their rationale behind this move, but it is interesting that Samsung has been seeing significantly higher sales of the curved versions of its Galaxy smartphones.

So long home button?

Could we be seeing the end of an era and the end of the home button? There has been strong suspicion that Apple are intending to remove the physical Home button and replace it with a touch-sensitive digital button on screen instead. 

Twin-lens camera?

A ‘mock up’ of what might be the new iPhone 8 was published on Twitter which should a device with a vertical twin-lens camera on the back on the phone and a distinct lack of a physical home button.

The bottom of the phone is more reminiscent of the iPhone 7, with a lightning port, twin speaker grills, and no sign of a restored 3.5-millimeter headphone jack that many customers were hoping to see a return of. 

iOS 11?

Storage options will come in 32GB, 128GB and 256B and it will more than likely feature an A11 chip which will run IOS 11.

There have been strong rumours that the iPhone 8 may be bundled with a pair of free AirPods – which are wireless earphones and are currently available to buy in the Apple Store for around £159.

The Airpods link up to your Apple Watch or iPhone via Bluetooth and thanks to their in-built sensors, they can automatically detect if a person has their AirPods in their ears and can play or pause music automatically.

When can we expect to see the Apple Iphone?

When can we expect the release of the 8? Well, typically Apple tend to release their devices in September and Apple are expected to unveil the iPhone 8 this coming September, though its release may be pushed back to October or November if recent rumours of manufacturing difficulties end up being accurate.

Of course, Apple could completely surprise us all and aim for a release date of 29th June to honour the ten-year anniversary of the original iPhone back in 2007.
