Apple is said to launch its iPhone 8 on upcoming 10th anniversary, as a turning point in their innovation. There are lots of rumors spreading around in digital world about iPhone 8; technology used in it and about its release.

First rumor begin in November 2016, about iPhone7s and iPhone8, whereas the first hunch of iPhone7 was spread in November 2015. A rough sketch of iPhone 7 along with mockup was leaked in April 2016. The real design settled to be closer to early trickles.

Apple took strict measures to prevent leaks in 2017. Corporate secrets are slightly likely to leak rather than momentary one.

Although Apple hasn’t officially announced iPhone8, but they are expecting big sale this year. Apple is taking keen interest on future technologies and innovative usability experience for the users. iPhone 8 technology is no exception.

According to Tim Cook CEO of Apple, “The smartphone is for everyone, we don’t have to think the iPhone is about a certain demographic, or country or vertical market: it’s for everyone. I think AR is that big, it’s huge,” Cook said. “I get excited because of the things that could be done that could improve a lot of lives. And be entertaining.”

He added that technologies comprising of impeccable augmented reality are way expensive, but a phone having all the same feature will not cost more the 1000$.

iPhone 8 design leak reveals radical change

The new iPhone is likely to break all record of previous iPhone sales and is helping to restore faith in Apple’s ability to innovate but yet there is so much yet to reveal about iPhone 8 design and functionality.

Ming-Chi Kuo a well reputed Apple analyst came up with an exciting news about Apple iPhone 8. He answered to the concerns of people regarding next gen smart iPhone 8. Kuo wrote in a note that Apple iPhone 8 will be of same size as iPhone 7, but the display will be 5.15 inch functional space. Apple replaced the home button completely with the function area similar to the Touch pro in MacBook Pro line.

iPhone 8 design will be something different, yet familiar

iPhone 8 OLED will not be bezel-less. It will have an extremely thin bezel on side and top of device. It will have functional area at the bottom of the screen. However the usable screen size will be 5.15 inches. This is similar to screen size to the Samsung Glaxy S8 (screen size 5.8 inches and onscreen controls).

The use of latest “Biometic technology” which includes facial recognition and iris scanning are true contenders. Number of reports are aiming that Apple will incorporate 3D laser technology to achieve robust facial recognition system. Major issue of Touch ID has also reached end line.

Kuo claimed in a note that iPhone 8 battery life will be even better than iphone7 plus due stacked logic board design. Moreover, iPhone8 battery life is strengthened to go along with OLED display, which isa more powerful option then conventional LCD display currently embedded in all iPhone.

If Apple will be able to give great usability experience to its users then this will be the gambling point for all the smart phones. It will also break the ground of critics made by some industry analysts that Apple lacks innovation.

Bezel less iPhone 8 proves to be a challenge for Apple

Apple is introducing number of new innovative technologies this year, from wireless charging to 3-D OLED display, powerful battery, water resistance and so on. Although some of the features are not officially documented but are expected to be part of Apple’s upcoming flagship phone. Beside of these cool innovative features; Apple is trying to integrate the Touch ID Fingerprint sensor into its iPhone 8 display, which apparently causes trouble to the company.

About the bezel-less iPhone 8

The reason of this bottleneck situation is bezel less iPhone 8. The handset’s front is fully a glass screen, sensor Touch ID is being re-engineering. Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company supply chain analyst cited the issues in integrating Touch ID Sensor in upcoming iPhone8. He claims that, Touch Sensor’s would be integrated in iPhone8 screen are low and Apple may consider less futuristic designs for its upcoming iPhone, if issue is not resolved.

If Apple is unable to resolve this issue they might have to go through few major changes in their design. According to Timothy Arcuri, first option could be to ditch the Touch ID Sensor and embed the old face recognition technology. Second option is to move the Touch ID sensor at the back of iPhone, which is highly not recommended as it is not at all user friendly, says Timothy Arcuri. Third option is to delay the production of iPhone8 which may cause huge loss to the company.

Apple is trying to bring best to the market and working hard to bring out the most elegant solution. Still it is unclear that either the company will be able to resolve the issue or not. Timothy Arcuri reports that the design has not been finalized yet and has not been yet entered in the production phase. This is the reason we are seeing the case leaks and retinue representations spread all across the web.

IPhone 8 : New “Wireless” features expected to introduce to support VR/AR.

Long rumored news about the addition of smart connectivity of wireless charging in iPhone 8 has reportedly become a reality. This claim has been made by Israeli site The Verifier. The smart connector will also assist the exclusive synced features of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). So far Apple hasn’t played any significant part in VR/AR but still the company is enthusiastic about Augmented Reality, claiming that the technology will be as impactful as the smart phone.

This isn’t the first time Apple has introduced the smart connectors, currently IPad Pro Model supports the smart connector. It has a port designed to provide data connection and power to all the accessories. Back in 2015, magnetic smart connector was introduced to IPad Pro but it is not known how much data has actually passed through the port. Apple has recently joined Wireless Power Consortium, consisting of 214 companies to promote g wireless connectivity under “Qi” standard.

Prior to the release of IPhone 7 plus an apparent image of its features was cropped and it showed the presence of smart connector placed at the back of the phone. Despite the amazing design and dual camera, smart connector remained working only with iPad connection.

As some say the magnetic strength on smart connector is not ideal, but it’s worth stating that Apple used lighting mode effectively to connect AR/VR accessories to IPhone. Apple hardware TV and AIR Play will also play vital role in AR/VR technology in IPhone 8.

After reading the “THE VERIFY” report, it’s safe to bet that IPhone will add the wireless charging feature to its new phone. Indeed, a number of reliable sources have validated this rumor over the past few months.
