IPhone 8 render leaks in Copper; Concepts show elegant design

Friday, 11 Aug, 2017

Apple has dragged its heels on this issue for years now, and while the iPhone 7's panel is still very useable, it PALES in comparison to the display on some Android phones that cost nearly 50% less than it.

Last week, Apple accidentally released an early build of the HomePod firmware.

While it's good to hear Apple's iPhone 8 will be ready for a September launch, this isn't very far removed from previous rumors that claimed the phone will be delayed into October or November.

I looked around the HomePod firmware and found the same references to this "supportsAttenuatingTonesForAttentionDetected" class. Alternatively, Apple might push for a 3D facial recognition technology.

Though it is recently reported that the iPhone 8 has gone through all of the developmental procedures and is poised for mass production, we haven't got anything compelling to settle upon, how the iPhone 8 actually looks. This unit which is also considered as "iPhone Pro" is expected to sport cutting-edge features and consumers are already looking forward to its fingerprint scanner presentation.

It might be used to allow multiple people to unlock an iPhone, perhaps with limited access, or to be able to register a face with and without glasses. If it succeeds, Apple will definitely replace the fingerprint authentication with the face detection feature.

Sources told DigiTimes that "all of the three new iPhone models, including two TFT LCD and one OLED model, have entered volume production", adding that supply may fall short of the high demand expected for the product.

Super-accurate Snapchat filters, anyone? This means there's a big chance that the iPhone 8 will eschew such a sensor altogether, since it won't be on the front either. One can also notice the vertically-aligned dual-rear camera and the pre-dominant apple logo at the back.

Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. This would make for a welcome change from the current system, where the only ways to turn off sounds are either to switch on Do Not Disturb mode in the control center, or to flip the ringer switch. If they are, the phone could mute incoming tones and alerts.
