IPhone 8 Will Not Feature the Touch ID

IPhone 8 Will Not Feature the Touch ID

Apple used a quad-core A10 processor in the iPhone 7 range and the company may stick with a quad-core A11 for its next phone.

At the same time, it's still not clear if the September 22 target for devices to hit the shelves also includes the iPhone 8, as people close to the matter said this particular model is likely to hit a delay due to supply issues. In order to watch 4K video via the new Apple TV, you'll, of course, also need a 4K display. In honor of the tenth anniversary of the first iPhone, the company is anticipated to report a string of new features for the new model, including augmented reality software, wireless charging and facial recognition security. Just recently Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 8, which features 64GB of built-in storage (and a microSD card slot), and has a retail price of around $940.

Apple's long-rumored iPhone 8 might have a lofty price tag that surpasses even the new ultra-premium Galaxy Note 8. The technology giant introduced the iPhone 5 on September 12, 2012, while released it a week later in the market. The iPhone 7 Plus, now the most expensive model Apple produces, starts at $769 for a 32GB model, with the most expensive tier priced at $969 for 256GB. It has always been rumored that Apple would build its own 4K TV, and supposedly it had begun testing a model a few months ago.

Several other equities research analysts have also recently commented on the company.

Still... An iPhone 8 starting price of $999? Two will be slightly redesigned and updated versions of the iPhone 7, and one will be this high-end iPhone with a brand new design and a almost full-screen display. The ability to charge through magnetic induction, rather than by plugging in a power cable, has always been available on several brands of Android devices, but has previously only been possible on iPhones by using special wireless charging cases.

It might not be the long-range wireless charging that we've been dreaming of, but it's still a start. The feature will require the purchase of a compatible wireless charging accessory, and Apple might not have them ready in September.
