Forget Touch ID if Apple fails to execute iPhone 8 design

Forget Touch ID if Apple fails to execute iPhone 8 design

The iPhone 8 may come housed with a dual-camera setup, but vertically-oriented, unlike the iPhone 7 Plus.

Although the authenticity of the drawings and renders can not be confirmed, MacRumors noted that "KK has on several occasions shared accurate details about previous devices". Unlike its predecessor, however, the leaks teased that the iPhone 8's primary cameras would follow a vertical arrangement. Earlier in April, he shared a few crude sketches of the impending Apple flagship.

Apple has already introduced True Tone technology in iPad Pro, and now the company should do the same with iPhone 8 launch.

Would you buy an iPhone 8 if the unthinkable happens? However, KK has a fairly reliable track record for leaks.

A report from March revealed that the Cupertino firm would not start mass production of the so-called iPhone 8 until September. These dimensions are almost identical to those of the predecessor iPhone 7s. Instead, it could confirm a number of the leaks related to the upcoming Apple smartphone. Interestingly, all the components appear as if they have been embedded under the screen.

The remaining phones were turned into Lost and Found at the concert site, where owners could claim them. Coachella might be a Snapchatter's paradise, but it's also, apparently, a phone thief's paradise.

But the most talked about move is the removal of the physical home button, which will allow for an edge-to-edge screen.

According to the report, a leaked patent talks about shock absorbers that will work on sensors and safeguard the device as it senses it falling from a height.

Pacific Crest's Andy Hargreaves and colleagues today review the matter in a group note, which focuses on the prospect "Apple is struggling with optical fingerprint functionality", something that has been rumored in recent days. However, latest reports suggest that the company has been encountering several hurdles while perfecting the technology. According to a Sunday research note from Pacific Crest Securities, Apple has issues with the new sensor, which could either delay the iPhone 8's launch or force Apple to place it on the back of the handset.

All the complexity - and the pursuit of excellence in its first OLED iPhone application - Apple has suffered with supply chain delays and a slow production process, seeing as Samsung is its one and only source of Organic Light Emitting Diode display panels. Thus, for now the above-mentioned scenario remains just a theory. The latest among these rumors features the alleged schematics of the premium-grade device, which include several features that have always been speculated about the upcoming Apple flagship.
