The smartphone will finally feature an OLED screen, welcoming Apple to the new age. And for anyone curious about the iPhone 8 form factor, we recently posted exclusive photos of what the final iPhone 8 design will likely look like. From the molds, it is clear that the 10th anniversary iPhone 8 is only slightly taller and wider than the 4.7-inch iPhone 7S. If most of these frames it does not, then you can easily count on all the 5.2 or even 5.3 inches, but in this regard, no specifics there.

Another interesting bit is the vertical dual camera, we've already seen on a purported dummy iPhone. Regardless, anyone interested in picking up Apple's flagship iPhone 8 won't necessarily have to wait until November to do so.

After months of will-they-won't-they over whether Apple will embed the Touch ID fingerprint sensor into the display, or opt for the simpler route of fitting it to the back, like the Samsung Galaxy S8, we are now hearing it will indeed be on the screen.

Price wise, it's no surprise that Apple plans to charge a premium for the iPhone 8, with the entry-level 128GB model said to retail for $1000 and the more storage-friendly 256GB model said to retail for $1,099.

Simply because no iPhone has ever been this expensive to build. In order to get its groove back, reports indicate that Apple agreed to some rather alarming rates to integrate 3D Touch into its newest device.

Nathan Ulrich, 52, of Lee, New Hampshire, was listed as the pilot of the plane, which is owned by Blumin. A Coast Guard airplane, helicopter and cutter were searching for the missing plane.

Even though Apple's rumored to launch three iPhones this year, it's the iPhone 8 that's getting the most attention from the rumor mill. However, JPMorgan analysts believe that the OLED display on the iPhone 8 will only be edge-to-edge horizontally leaving some room for slim bezels on the top and bottom.

After years of staying away from the wireless charging game, Apple is finally set to introduce a version of wireless charging with the iPhone 8.

Now as for when we can expect to see the iPhone 8 finally hit store shelves, the good news is that we won't have to wait longer than usual. The Apple iPhone 7s will be the smallest of the three models, and will be the only one of the three to have a single camera on back.

Amongst all iPhone 8 rumours, this seems to be the most sketchy.
