2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the what many say is one of the greatest inventions; iPhone smartphone. For this 10 year anniversary Apple has something major planned to celebrate the occasion. There are still a couple months to go until the launch of the iPhone 8, but because of Apple’s ambitious plans for the device, there are already an abundance of rumors leaked hinting at the impressive features coming in the 2017 iPhone.
Apple is rumored to be testing more than 10 prototype iPhone models , so it’s not entirely clear what we’re going to see, and because there are so many test devices in play, rumors are also conflicting and murky at this time.
Rumors suggest the iPhone 8 will feature a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, most rumors suggest Touch ID will be built directly into the display, meaning there will be no physical home button. Apple was rumored to be having trouble implementing Touch ID under the display, but the company may overcome those issues.
The display itself is said to be flexible plastic OLED rather than an LCD, allowing Apple to introduce a thinner device that consumes less power and offers a better display with higher contrast ratio and more true to life colors. Early rumors suggested it could feature edges that are curved on both sides like the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, but it’s looking more like it will have the same highly curved 2.5D display that’s similar to the display used in the iPhone 7 because Apple suppliers still have difficulty producing more curved displays.
As for the body, rumors suggest Apple is finally going to move away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, and SE that could be so easily bent, to instead re-adopting a glass body that’s similar to the body that was used in the iPhone 4. At least one iPhone model coming in 2017 will use a glass body, according to Apple supplier Catcher Technology, and according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glass will be built around a polished stainless steel frame that’s similar in design to the Apple Watch.
The appearance of phone sounds beautiful, but you don’t just look at a phone, you have to use it, and the biggest question a lot of people always have is “What about space?” “How can i get more space on my phone?” With this new phone, will come a new update, iOS 11. iOS 11 will feature a great deal of useful features. The biggest being “Offload unused Apps” What this feature will do is once you storage is low, a new feature will automatically remove apps that you done use very often. the selected apps are removed and you get back what can possibly be massive portions of your storage back. Your phone will keep all data that was associated with the phone if you ever need to re-download the app. All in all this very well be the biggest and best update to the iPhone yet. IN about 4 months many of us will be able to see for our selves.
