- 1 Why so anxious about the latest iPhone 8 rumors?
- 2 iPhone 8 Rumors we want to become reality
Almost a month has passed since the official release of iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iOS 10 and everybody already looks for iPhone 8 rumors!
In fact, even Apple stated that they couldn’t integrate everything they want in iPhone 7 series and left the greatest parts for iPhone 8!
Let’s take a look at the most interesting iPhone 8 rumors that keeps circulating!
Why so anxious about the latest iPhone 8 rumors?
I believe it is the first time that despite the fact that Apple released two brand new iPhone models, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+ (you can read my iPhone 7 Review here) and people are already waiting for the next year’s iPhone model: iPhone 8!
- Maybe it is because 2017 will be the 10th anniversary of the very first iPhone
- Maybe it is because iPhone 7/7+ are not better enough, compared to iPhone 6s/6s+
- Maybe it is because Apple loses ground against Samsung and Xiaomi
There are some of the reasons why iPhone 8 Rumors are hot like hell.
1. Release date and iPhone 8 speculation
Most probably iPhone 8 will be released in September 2017 but many believe that Apple might surprise us (like iPhone SE release in March 2016) and unleash iPhone 8 in June 2017, exactly 10 years after the release of original iPhone in 2007!
2. Home Button and iPhone 8 Rumors
Headphone jack belongs to the past with the iPhone 7 series and believe it or not, Home button might be next!
There is a really good chance that Home Button will be replaced by a fingerprint sensor on iPhone 8!
This ultrasonic fingerprint sensor will be able to ”read” your finger through your iPhone 8 Touch Screen.
If this happens, iPhone 8 screen will be the whole front side of iPhone 8!
Anyway, we can take a look how this sensor already works in Xiaomi Mi 5s in this video from FoneArena
3. OLED Screen and iPhone 8 Rumors
I read on Bloomberg that Apple is already in talks with Sharp for what else: The brand new OLED Screen of iPhone 8!
Samsung Galaxy S7 is using a Super AMOLED display with wider viewing angles, more saturated colors and better contrast!
OLED Screen on iPhone 8 will be even better but will also help iPhone 8 battery to last longer because it will require lesser power than a usual screen!

4. Design and iPhone 8 Rumors
Maybe the biggest change on iPhone 8 will be the totally different design! If what we are hearing is true, then iPhone 8 will be an all-glass enclosure instead of supporting the classic metal case!
Apple tried this before, with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s but the results weren’t so good because those iDevices could break or ”crack” really easy! With iPhone 8 this will be no problem because iPhone Glass is already almost indestructible!
Anyway, if iPhone 8 rumors about design are true, get ready for an all-glass enclosure with an aluminum frame (and a stainless steel one for the iPhone 8 Plus or a better version)
5. A11 Processor and iPhone 8 rumors
One of the best features of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is the A10 Fusion Chip!
iPhone 8 will have the even most impressive A11 processor under the hood!
6. Touch ID and iPhone 8 Rumors
If iPhone 8 is as we expect it to be, then the entire iPhone 8 Home Screen will be a Touch ID button. iPhone 8 users will be able to press anywhere on the Home Screen to perform any action they want!
7. The Smart Connector and iPhone 8 whispers
We expected iPad Pro’s Smart Connector to become a part of iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus but this was an iPhone 7 rumor that was proven wrong!
Now many claim that iPhone 8 will have the Smart Connector feature and if this is true, then get ready for even greater iPhone 8 iGadgets!
8. iPhone 8 Price
When iPhone 6s Plus was released you could buy it from an Apple Store with $749 and iPhone 7 Plus costs only $20 more ($769).
(Keep in mind that these prices vary from country to country)
But if iPhone 8 update is as huge as expected then this means that it might cost way over $800!
iPhone 8 Rumors we want to become reality
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the greatest iPhones ever created but let’s be honest: If you exempt Camera and A10 Fusion Chipset everything else is the same with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (except the Headphone jack)
Unfortunately for Apple, Samsung and Google latest mobiles are gaining ground, day by day!
If iPhone 8 have all the features we covered in this ”iPhone 8 Rumors” article, it won’t be just the true next generation iPhone.
It will be the most innovative smartphone ever created!
