By parsing the leaked code, he's discovered evidence of a home button on the iPhone 8 that resizes within a "periphery area", possibly located towards the bottom of the display.
Meanwhile, the new iPhone 8 will be released with limited design options and features as well. Independently, another report emphasizes bolster for remote charging on the iPhone 8, while a Foxconn official is said to have recommended the handset won't come in shoddy. Also, the Touch ID sensor is missing from the front, which fuels the possibility of Apple forgoing Touch ID entirely and opting for its new facial recognition software instead. One thing to keep in mind that the code's existence does not automatically mean Apple will implement it. Apple often experiments with new features during the testing phase, which either get polished and included in final code or ultimately pulled, depending on how it works out.
- Apple's upcoming 2017 iPhones, including the "iPhone 8", the iPhone 7s, and the iPhone 7s Plus, will be available in just three colors - black, silver, and gold - MacRumors reports citing a new investor note shared by respectable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
We're rapidly approaching the release date of the new iPhone - so blurry leaked photos and unconfirmed rumours are popping up all over the place. Drexel Hamilton reaffirmed a "buy" rating and issued a $208.00 target price on shares of Apple in a research report on Wednesday. This, Rambo says, is proof that the new Apple handset, thought by many to be called the iPhone 8, will lower alert sounds when you are looking at it.
According to the video, the iPhone 8 dummy unit has no Home button and no Touch ID as a effect. The alleged iPhone 7s Plus is seen with the same horizontally aligned camera set up, a glass body and a home button where as the iPhone 8 is seen sporting a bezel less screen, no home button and wit several sensors on front.
Troughton-Smith also learned that the virtual home button will be automatically minimized when a video is being watched in full screen mode.
While Apple is yet to reveal, or accidentally leak, any of this information, we must turn to the ever-faithful render designers.
