IPhone 8 to let users silence notifications with a glance

IPhone 8 to let users silence notifications with a glance

There's no way Apple will surprise us with the iPhone 8's design come September.

That's the word from Steven Troughton-Smith, one of a number of developers who have been delving ever deeper into code released for Apple's HomePod speaker to find details about the iPhone 8.

As you can see from the image above the black iPhone 8 model is entirely black, while the copper gold iPhone 8 model features a copper gold band, the white iPhone 8 model features a silver band, and the black model features a black band.

The iPhone 8 launch, hampered by unfinished designs and technical difficulties, won't happen till November, according to one report, but others question the reliability of such claims.

iOS developer Guilherme Rambo has discovered a new code hidden inside the HomePod firmware, which seems to suggest that the iPhone will automatically mute notifications when you are looking at the display. According to several reports and rumours - and now hands-on videos - the new iPhone 8 will be radically different to the iPhone 7. It is about the same size as the current iPhone 7, but it has a larger display with a bezel-less design.

That said, this is still just a dummy unit, likely created using the various iPhone 8 schematics that are already in circulation out there. The inclusion of a glass back should lend a more premium feel to the new handset, and you just can't beat an edge-to-edge screen.

New products expected to launch in September include the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and iPhone 8, with price points reaching between $900 and $1,100. Expected to feature a bezel-less screen, wireless charging and no buttons, it will bring so many bits of technology we've been waiting for Apple to implement. Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Friday.
