It's time we embraced the iPhone 8's notch

It's time we embraced the iPhone 8's notch

iOS developer Guilherme Rambo has discovered a new code hidden inside the HomePod firmware, which seems to suggest that the iPhone will automatically mute notifications when you are looking at the display.

That said, this is still just a dummy unit, likely created using the various iPhone 8 schematics that are already in circulation out there. Sure, there are still many mysteries buried inside iOS 11 related to the way the iPhone 8's unique features will work, even though some of them were partially detailed by the leaked HomePod software. However, it was earlier known that the iPhone 7s could come with aluminium body and not glass, and may also not get wireless charging capability like the anniversary edition.

UX designer Maksim Petriv has created some mockups showing different approaches Apple could take to cope with the notch, and how these might look in different apps.

Analysts have predicted the iPhone 8 could push Apple to become the first company to reach a market cap of $1 trillion, Economic Times reported.

Speculation about if the iPhone 8 will be ready in time for its September release remain up in the air. The company is also set to launch two new smartphones alongside the iPhone 8.

But case makers aren't the only ones leaking images about the iPhone 8.

Trouble and delays with production has been said to be occurring on a massive scale, leading many to predict the iPhone 8 won't go on sale at launch or won't be available in massive quantities initially.

The screen of the iPhone 8 should also be better than the iPhone 7's.

Features predicted to be included in the new OLED "iPhone 8" - sometimes referred to as "iPhone X" or "iPhone Pro", - have included fingerprint scanning, facial recognition, and a 5.15 inch edge-to-edge screen.

Sonny Dickson, an iPhone leak specialist, had given a glimpse of the iPhone 7s.
