Apple's 'iPhone 8' Will Feature Wireless Charging And All-Glass Body; Latest Updates On Release, Price And More Unveiled
According to a recent statement by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, the upcoming 2017 iPhone will be adding wireless charging to its arsenal for the very first time. Instead of plugging into a cable, iPhone 8 owners will now be able to charge their batteries using an inductive pad, which is pretty similar to how the Apple Watch charges. Though a lot of Android phones are already supporting wireless charging with plastic and metal chassis, the report says that Apple's switch to a glass casing for iPhone 8 will enable wireless charging at faster speeds with minimum disruption from frequency interference.
Apple incorporates wireless charging
The report also clarifies that Apple might not bundle wireless charging features to every model, which means it may be limited to the more expensive, higher-capacity SKUs, but expect Apple to adopt wireless charging aggressively through 2018. Plans are all up in the air for now, of course, but buyers for the lower-end models may find that they have to purchase an additional accessory if they intend to charge their phones wirelessly.
Apple's future plans
Reports have previously said that Apple plans to release three new iPhone devices in 2017, two models that will be a lot of more-iterative successors to the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and a majorly new bezel-less design that comes with an OLED display that wraps around the edges and sides of the phone. All three models will be expected to feature glass casings which suggest that they will all incorporate wireless charging components.
About the OLED display
The OLED display has been projected to be about 5.8-inches in size, although the active touchscreen diagonal size would be a circa 5.2-inches, as some of the screen areas are being used up on the sides of the product for aesthetic reasons.
About Touch ID and other features
This iPhone is also expected to be featuring a Touch ID Home Button which will, somehow, be integrated into the display itself, eliminating the bottom bezel completely. The OLED iPhone 8 continues to be described as bezel-less, but it is still uncertain how Apple will be dealing with the top bezel which currently features a speaker and FaceTime camera.

Apple's 'iPhone 8' Will Have No Home Button, But Why?
The upcoming iPhone 8 will have an edge-to-edge screen, as well as ditch (yet again) the home button, which is arguably the most important way of interacting with an iPhone.
