IPhone 8 may come with bundled AirPods


A new set of rumors say that the iPhone 8 will not have a bezel-less design and will stick to Lightning ports. As great as that would be, at least for some iPhone fans, it's not going to happen.

It's not clear whether this latest issue means Apple has fixed issues with placing its Touch ID fingerprint scanner behind the iPhone 8's all-glass front. A few days after reporting, though, Apple stock hit a new 52-week high of $148.98, closing at $148.96 per share at the end of the Friday, May 5 trading session.

News headlines about Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) have trended somewhat positive this week, AlphaOne reports. Similarly, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple will release the iPhone 8 in September, but the device will face "several supply shortages" for sometime. Some reports suggest that there will be nearly negligible bezels on the upcoming iPhone 8 as Apple aims to take on the new-found wide-screen fad.

Today the Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) reports that there will be no delay for the launch of the next generation iPhone devices, with the new devices to be unveiled in September, and Apple will begin selling the products in October, according to a. The assemblers of the upcoming iPhone 8 handsets - including Foxconn Electronics, Pegatron and Winstron - are also reportedly speeding up the recruitment and training of new labour personnel in China to prepare for the new iPhone's mass production.

As I said earlier, it's silly season for iPhone rumours.

The only real reason Apple might package the AirPods along with the iPhone 8 would be to bury the Samsung Galaxy S8 and its new AKG by Harman wired headphones. That fact, that the iPhone accounts for almost 70% of revenues, makes it all the more important for the next iPhone, the tenth anniversary of the device, to be a home run for Apple. Let us know in the comments.

"We believe Apple remains among the most underappreciated stocks in the world", CNBC.com quoted White as saying. The first two predictions seem plausible, but not the third. If the iPhone 8 release date 2017 launch won't materialize on the planned date, potential buyers will have to consider getting the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus instead. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings.
