IPhone 8 Launch Delayed? Report Says It'll Be November

IPhone 8 Launch Delayed? Report Says It'll Be November

Others have noticed an unexplained potential problem with the image - the phone pictured is clearly not running iOS 11 (which will be the operating system for the iPhone 8), as indicated by the presence of bars instead of dots indicating signal strength.

Verdict: iPhone 8 wins. The phone will support wireless charging, which explains the switch from metal to glass.

The "copper gold" dummy has a flat copper color on the back, but is actually a shiny yellow on the sides, according to YouTube producer Danny Winget.

UX designer Maksim Petriv has created some mockups showing different approaches Apple could take to cope with the notch, and how these might look in different apps. However, previous leaks have shown an iPhone 8 with this coloring. It also has the glass back that rumors say will come on the device. For me, this is where the iPhone 8 surges ahead of the iPhone 7. However, rather than using its usual manufacturers, Apple will apparently be placing its iPhone SE 2 order with Wistron, which is based in India.

As a result, he warned iPhone 8 'will not be cheap'.

That 5.8-inch screen size is 0.3-inches larger than the screen current used on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Verdict: Draw, for now.

We've previously heard plenty of rumours about the iPhone 8 ditching the physical Home key due to its vast expanse of edge-to-edge OLED display real-estate, and we've also heard about the so-called "Function Area" which is said to be a specific portion of the display dedicated to taking on the Home key role, as well as, as the title would suggest, a series of functions.

If you're after a phone in the next few months, I'd recommend waiting for an iPhone 8.

Apple is expected to officially unveil their new range of iPhone devices including the Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone during September 2017 and as soon as more specifications all details are announced we will keep you up to speed as always.
