IPhone 8 and iPhone 7s WILL Launch on September 12


The report cautions that it could only say Apple has "tested" the new gesture controls and that it's likely one of multiple solutions for making up for the lack of a home button.

Whether it will work as smoothly as the old home button interface, which has allowed users to return to the home screen in an instant ever since the iPhone's launch in 2007, remains to be seen.

The potential fly in the ointment here stems from analyst speculation that given how advanced the iPhone 8's new features are said to be, Apple may be having production issues. Some sources are predicting that, in-line with Apple's usual MO of getting new devices on sale within a couple of weeks, the iPhone 8 may be around for purchase by September 22, with pre-orders in the run-up to that date. The vertically aligned dual-rear camera will be part of iPhone 8 along with new A11 chip, storage starting at 32GB and going to 256GB.

Apple might remove the iconic physical home button of the device and replace it with a virtual button. Also, CEO Timothy D. Cook sold 268,623 shares of the company's stock in a transaction that occurred on Monday, August 28th.

In other words, this iPhone launch, which some analysts could fetch as much as $1,200 or even as much as $1,400, is expected to be more than just Apple's typical incremental hardware upgrade.


However, there are still many assets of the iPhone 8 to get excited for. For example, it will have thin bezels, a facial recognition sensor, and a longer power button. The display promises to stretch from edge to edge with only a notch in the top for the earpiece and front-facing sensors.

The world is still reeling from Apple's decision to snip the headphone port off iPhone 7 - but a bigger change could be incoming. Apple's upcoming tenth anniversary smartphone is a regular feature of the rumor mill.

Samsung - Apple's closest rival - launched its flagship Galaxy S8 this summer with the slogan, "Unbox your phone" - referring to the "box" at the edges of the screen.

Research firm IDC gave Apple's shares another boost after releasing bullish estimates for the new iPhone. In addition to being faster, these new processors are also more energy efficient, which should help cut down battery consumption when performing regular tasks.

This leads me to believe that, as far as Broadcom dollar content in the new iPhones goes, there's no difference between an iPhone 7s and a premium OLED iPhone.
