IPhone 8 Release Date Confirmed

IPhone 8 Release Date Confirmed

We now have some idea.

I don't think the concept of a premium iPhone will be a one-off - I expect Apple to release relatively high-priced iPhone models each year with features that are too costly, or that simply can not yet be manufactured in high volumes, for the mainstream iPhone models at mainstream price points.

If Apple announces the iPhone 8 on Tuesday, September 12, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, the new phone could be available to preorder as early as Friday, September 15.

It's also rumoured the iPhone 8 will include iris/facial recognition, meaning users will be able to unlock the device just by looking at it.

Here's how it would work. Munster noted this feature may not be ready on the iPhone 8 until 2018. Apple is said to be readying a new iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, to be launched alongside a new iPhone 8 (assuming that will be the name) which is rumoured to feature a almost bezel-free design. The home button has been used for everything from scanning fingerprints to launching Siri to simply going back to the home screen. A similar swipe-up gesture will activate the multitasking menu you now need to double tap the home button to access.

Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 will probably let you unlock it with facial recognition, and security experts tell Mashable that's a awful idea.

Bloomberg's report also reiterated previous suggestions that the iPhone 8's display will be taller and will have rounded corners like the LG G6. Every current iPhone owner knows that swiping up from the bottom of the screen brings up quick controls for wireless connections, the flashlight, and more. While Munster didn't say for certain that it will create a supercycle, he did say it will be as close as Apple can get to a supercycle. Thanks to the phone's design - the entire front of the device will be screen (except for a small notch up top) - Apple's entire approach to phones will need to change. Since the home button is no more, TouchID no longer has a home (pun intended).

I could go on. To make such a major change, Apple must have considered ditching the home button a change worth making. The iPhone 8's display said to be flat, and won't have curved edges like the ones feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8. Then the app gets sucked back into its icon. The app dock is also getting a redesign and looks a lot like the iPad iOS 11 dock, according to Bloomberg. The left side displays the time, while the right shows battery life, signal and other indicators.
