These iPhone 8 designs show Apple's biggest change in action

If this trend persists, it would seem Apple's (and to a lesser extent, Google's) engineers think that the touch paradigm is old and established enough to be more abstract, which opens up a whole slew of other possibilities.

Apple is reportedly planning to hold a product event on September 12 that will see the announcement of several devices, including the highly anticipated iPhone 8 and the next version of the Apple Watch.

The folks over at Bloomberg got their hands on some images of the next iPhone as well as some information from people familiar with the new model.

When is the iPhone 8 release date?

Yes, but not a bigger phone. So yes. Word is the 8 will have a 5.8-inch screen that covers the entire surfaces area of the phone.

Reports also say that the third party charging pads will have to be licensed via Mfi program which explains the reason to why wireless charging would have to wait for an iOS 11 update and not be available out of the box. As noted, Apple inspires so many small and big companies around the world that copies the design, look and feel and even the user interface of Apple devices.

For instance, when you drag the home bar up towards the middle of the screen, your iPhone will turn on, he said. Given that more than 50% of the company's revenues are generated by the iPhone, it's disturbing news, especially for shareholders.

Augmented reality is, after all, so hot right now. The overall footprint is closer to the iPhone 7 than the iPhone 7 Plus. Headinvest LLC now owns 16,295 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $2,347,000 after buying an additional 390 shares during the period.

Research firm IDC gave Apple's shares another boost after releasing bullish estimates for the new iPhone. The iPhone 8's charging might be limited to 7.5 watts of power instead of the 15 watts of the Qi standard.

But it's expensive. More expensive than past iPhones. The iPhone 8 is rumoured to start at the $US1000 ($1266) mark, a price point previously unheard of in smartphones (unless you count Vertu). Shrinking sales, while not hurting Apple due to its massive cash coffers, revealed that the company may have lost the sense of innovation that was its foundation during the years with Steve Jobs at the helm.

Basically, everything we've talked about so far had better be as cool (and work as well) as it sounds, as $1,400 for a new phone, when you can find an iMac for cheaper, is asking a lot.
