The iPhone 8 Will Be An Overkill
Now that the iPhone is about to turn 10 next year, it's quite exciting to think about what Apple plans for their next phone release. Will it be ultra-fast? Will it be oddly-shaped? Can it finally fly? Needless to say, the expectations are quite high for the anniversary iPhone. People know Apple to be an "embracer" of change, someone who isn't afraid to leave habits in the past. With that said, fans don't need official statements from Apple to know that the iPhone 8 will come with major upgrades and high-tech features. But are these really necessary?
Apple iPhone 8 Rumors
Even though the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has just been recently released, rumor has it that the iPhone 8 is already being developed. As per a CNET report, an unnamed employee from one of Apple's facilities has confirmed that the iPhone 8 is already in the works. It was also confirmed that the next iPhone will be quite different from its predecessors.
As per unconfirmed rumors, the iPhone 8 could come with an all-glass frontal. It could also feature curved edges and a virtual home button. Forbes' report also implies that the high demand for the jet black iPhones could also affect Apple's decision for the iPhone 8's design.
So if rumors are to be believed, it looks like Apple is indeed bringing in some major changes to the iPhone 8. However, the question that remains is whether these changes are necessary or not. It's also worth asking whether or not Apple will address the iPhone imperfections that actually matter.
Apple iPhone 8, Early Review
If Apple's only goal is to create a "new" iPhone for next year, then the abovementioned rumors suggest that the company will definitely be hitting its goal. However, if Apple intends to make the iPhone 8 the improved version of the past iPhones, then it's still uncertain if the company will be successful in doing so. The implications right now is that Apple will create the iPhone 8 as a high-technology premium smartphone. This means that there is a possibility that the company will overkill the iPhone 8 with "unnecessary" additions.
Do we really need to have an all-glass smartphone? Is there really a need to remove the home button? As of now, the short answer is no, because so far we never really had problems with smartphones that use normal screens. The iPhones' home buttons are also living in peace without causing any troubles. Right now, what we need from the iPhone 8 are changes that matter.
Apple iPhone 8 Expectations
Physical changes may already be called for just for the sake of innovation. However, it's still arguable if whether or not expensive changes are necessary. Making the iPhone 8 all-glass is clearly going to cost some good cash. The question is, will it be worth it? Needless to say, what most iOS loyalists want right now is some relevant changes.
What we want to see in the iPhone 8 is an improvement in the RAM, display and battery areas. The best way for the iPhone 8 to stand out over the others is if it could beat them in all aspects. If the company could improve the iPhone's overall internal specs, then there'll be no more reason for people to bash the iPhone for its royal-image and high price.
Right now, even the affordable OnePlus 3 can beat the iPhone 7 in all these aspects. It's basically iPhone 7's 750 x 1334 pixel resolution over OnePlus 3's 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. The iPhone 7 only has 2 GB RAM while the OnePlus 3 has 6 GB RAM. The flagship killer Android also boasts of a sufficient 3000 mAh battery while the iPhone 7 is still stuck with a 1960 mAh battery.
Luckily though, Apple is unbeatable when it comes to its speedy performance. Benchmark results and comparative speed tests prove this. However, any additional features given to the iPhone 8 won't be very useful if Apple doesn't improve the phone's outdated specs. We can just hope that the next iPhone will not only improve physically but also internally.
