The iPhone 8 is coming
The rumours we’re hoping are real.
Could this be the coolest iPhone yet?
Everybody. Stop. It’s August 1st, which means the iPhone 8 is (almost) here! Tech types are talking a mere month away and now never-before-seen pics of the iPhone 8 case have been released. Of course rumours are flying about what it might be like.
It’s been an Apple tradition since 2012 to drop their newest product in September AND it’s the tenth-anniversary of the iPhone. Ya know what that means? That the new iPhone is coming and it’s gonna be good. Here’s what we can (maybe) expect.
A MASSIVE SCREEN
One thing we know is the latest iPhone will have the biggest screen yet. Rumour has it the screen will be a whopping 5.8inch and have a higher resolution than ever before. In fact, it’s gonna be all screen baby. Leaked reports say the 8 will have an all-glass, edge-to-edge design. Time to start downloading all your fave movies!
NO HOME BUTTON
You know what all screen means? No home button. Whaaa? How do you unlock it? The fingerprint sensor will be integrated into the screen display. Plus, there are hints that it will feature a front-facing 3D laser scanner for facial recognition so that your face will need to be scanned to use it. How’s that for new technology?
Say goodbye to long, tangled charging cords! The newest iPhone is rumoured to come with a charging plate, similar to the Apple watch. Magic!
Sure, the iPhone 7 is said to be water-resistant but the iPhone 8 is set to have an even higher water-resistant rating. This means it’s gonna be perfect for pool parties, seaside selfies and stalking classic Insta-in-the-bath shots.
THREE SIZES AND MORE STORAGE
The iPhone 8 will come in three different sizes with upgraded storage. No more 32GB iPhones, devices will start with 64GB of storage with 3GB RAM. More room for videos of your pets doing cute things!
Rumour has it these babies will be between $1200 and $1500. Right, we’re off to start saving.
