Everything We Know About The iPhone 8 So Far

Various reports suggest that the premium iPhone could be called the iPhone Pro, iPhone X, iPhone Edition.

Firmware from iOS11 released by software developer Steven Throughton-Smith and cited by United States tech websites showed references to iPhone X and iPhone 8.

Evan Blass: Apple iPhone 8 name Noted tipster Evan Blass recently leaked that upcoming iPhone may be called the "iPhone X" instead of iPhone 8. To prevent confusion, from this point forward we will refer to Apple's next flagship as the iPhone 8.

You can now download the 16 new leaked iOS 11 GM wallpapers meant for iPhone and iPad.

The iOS 11 further hints that the Apple will introduce the Face ID.

Also, according to International Business Times, the Cupertino company saw Apple's shares drop 0.57 percent, following the report about the 10th anniversary iPhone. In the note, he said that the OLED panel by Samsung for iPhone X may cost anywhere between $120 to $130 per unit.

We've known for a few weeks that the iPhone 8 features a near bezel-less display, but until now it's been unclear how the phone's Status Bar will work with an edge-to-edge screen.

The "Series 3" Apple Watch that is expected to be launched by the end of this year might have LTE too that will enhance its potential when not connected to an iPhone.

On Tuesday, Apple aficionados will once again get together in California to witness the iPhone 8's unveiling.

The ever reliable Evan Blass, who has a track record of leaking accurate information also seems to be backing the claim.

Starting with what might be the most interesting new discovery: Portrait Lighting. Since the new iPhone will have a notch, the status bar will display the time in green (or red when screen recording is on) on the left-top side of the screen. It will have a much faster processor, an all-glass back, an all new form of facial recognition for security and access, no physical home button on the front, a new touch ID system integrated elsewhere and full wireless charging with a dock right in the box.

Apple has partnered with several Korean manufacturers that will deliver the components necessary to have all the functionalities taking place in the iPhone 8.
