New details emerge on 'iPhone 8' design, removal of Home Button

Apple iPhone 8 to be Priced Somewhere Around $999

Here's what rumours suggest we can expect from the new iPhone 8.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 8 and a new iPhone 7s and 7s Plus at a press event on September 12th. The bottom of the screen will host a software bar that can be dragged upwards to open the phone and also to get to the multitasking interface once the phone is unlocked. Apple's in a bit of a rut, after sales of the smartphone haven't been what they used to be.

That expectation is reinforced by the fact that Broadcom has said that it will enjoy a significant (and atypical on a year-over-year basis) increase in the amount of dollar content that it'll supply in this year's new iPhone models.

It sounds like Apple is also introducing a face-scanning system that would recognize a user quickly and efficiently.

Bloomberg said gestures will allow users to multitask with multiple apps and return to the home screen, the latter of which is one of the current primary functions of the home button. No button means no more TouchID, but the company's using facial recognition technology to replace the identity verification and purchasing tool - more on that below.

It's suppose to be the most expensive iPhone Apple has made in the ten years of it's production.

Is it really delivery if you have to go get it?
I'm sure the marketing folks at Ford and Domino's will enjoy using this test to their respective advantages. The idea that a pizza chain would start testing self-driving delivery seems like a natural next step.

The mobile device in the video shows slim bezels and also flaunts a circular fingerprint scanner on the screen itself.

The spine of most Android smartphones is wireless charging however, Apple's deployment of this technology would prove sub-standard to those who were hoping that it would be welcomed. However, the screen won't be prominently curved like Samsung phones, such as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.

The "notch" or "cutout" at the top of iPhone 8's display has been a polarizing topic among fans ever since the first legitimate schematics for the device leaked online.

When will you be able to buy the iPhone 8?

Unique to the iPhone 8 is that it will have a shelf along the top where the front camera, sensors, earpiece, and antenna will be housed, according to today's report. Their sources confirmed that the company will be unveiling three iPhones, one of which will be the highly anticipated iPhone 8. Shrinking sales, while not hurting Apple due to its massive cash coffers, revealed that the company may have lost the sense of innovation that was its foundation during the years with Steve Jobs at the helm.
