Apple to launch new iPhone 8


Apple is planning to deliver its biggest ever iPhone redesign to celebrate the range’s 10th anniversary new reports have indicated.
The iPhone 8 which almost completely eliminates the chunky bezels of previous iPhones has an elongated and enlarged 5.8-inch display and will feature a cutout at the top for the front facing camera.
A contributory writer for Forbes magazine, Gordon Kelly who worked with case designer for Apple, Nodus wrote;
“While it isn’t shown in the renders, I can also confirm the Lighting port will remain and there will be no switch to USB Type-C on the iPhone 8 despite its widespread adoption on MacBooks. The headphone jack won’t be returning either.
“In addition to this Apple will indeed replace the horizontally aligned dual rear camera of the iPhone 7 Plus with a vertically aligned shooter on the iPhone 8.
“This switch is to support Apple’s big drive into Augmented Reality where horizontally aligned cameras are more effective and the phone is expected to be held in a landscape orientation,” he added.
In addition, Apple will almost double its size for the iPhone 8 and integrate Touch ID into the power button.
“This would be an unobtrusive workaround and Apple has already been granted a patent for this,” Kelly added.
