We recently heard that the new iPhone 8 would come with an L shaped battery. Now it has been revealed that this battery will bring significant improvements to battery life over the current iPhones.
There are also more details about the new edge to edge display on Apple’s iPhone 8. The handset will be the first iPhone to use an OLED display. The new display on Apple’s iPhone will apparently not be as prone to accidental input like the Infinity and Edge displays that Samsung uses.
We also heard recently that there would be no home button on this years iPhone. This leaves Apple a problem with Touch ID on the handset. Some rumors have suggested a back home button for the device, although this is unlikely. Others have suggested that Apple will ditch Touch ID altogether and instead use facial recognition for security on the handset.
Apple are expected to introduce facial recognition to the new iPhone 8, but this may not be the only security feature. The iPhone 8 is rumored to have a much larger power button on the side. Some rumors suggest that Apple will have integrated Touch ID into this power button.
The pictures show what the design of Apple’s new iPhone 8 is expected to look like. The handset gets a complete redesign with new materials. The device is said to feature a stainless steel chassis and a glass back.
Apple will introduce their new Apple A11 processor with this years iPhone 8. This new processor is expected to deliver around a 30 percent improvement in performance over the previous Apple A10 processor.
Apple is expected to launch their new iPhone 8 some time in September. We will also get two other new handsets, the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. These two devices will have an LCD display, but will come with a new design over the current iPhone 7 handsets. We are looking forward to seeing what Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone is like, as soon as we get some more details about the handset, we will let you guys know.
A recent rumor has suggested that Apple could make their iPhone 8 official at a press event on the 6th of September. The handset would then go up for pre-order on the 8th of September and could then launch on the 15th, this has not been confirmed.
