IPhone 8: Talk of delays and redesign over security issue


The next iPhone's are reportedly set to be released as early as this fall, so we'll find out sooner rather than later whether or not this is the case.

As for the camera, the new leak shares that Apple may equip the iPhone 8 with a vertically arranged iSight module-enabled dual-camera setup. The report also says while the screen is larger than the iPhone 7 Plus, the overall size of the smartphone is similar to an iPhone 7.

This is quite an interesting turn of rumors.

The tenth anniversary iPhone model, according to Bloomberg's Apple guru Mark Gurman, will not have a curved OLED display but instead will have curved glass on both the front and back.

First, Pacific Crest Securities' Andy Hargreaves said on Tuesday that Apple is facing supply chain headwinds that may force it to ditch the fingerprint reader altogether. The other two models, however, will not have an OLED screen and likely be iterations to the current iPhone 7 models. The latest prototype of the redesigned iPhone 8 uses slightly curved glass on the front and back and is "similar conceptually" to the iPhone 4. On some iPhone 8 models in testing, the cover glass curves into a steel frame, but the curve is not expected to be dramatic.


Apple's AAPL third model-which has been rumored to be called the iPhone 8, iPhone X, or iPhone Edition-will come with a screen that almost entirely covers the face of the device, Bloombergs sources said.

According to Bloomberg, Apple is indeed working on three iPhones, including a flagship handset that will have an OLED display taking up the entire front side of the handset. This device has also led consumers to purchase other Apple devices like the Apple Watch and iPad. We are saying cameras because Apple is also considering equipping the iPhone 8 with two front cameras that will allow better-looking images.

That's according to Bloomberg, which says that the top-end model will boast a brand new design including a curved screen that covers nearly the entirety of the device's front.

The company is also testing new camera options for the forthcoming phones, including dual camera systems and different placements.
