Will The 'iPhone 8' Come Before 'iPhone 7s'?
Apple and its lineup of iPhones is an ever-changing one. Just recently, we have only just had the release of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and right now people are already having talks about what comes next. Right now, the rumors are mixed with different sides talking about an iPhone 7S, along with others about the upcoming iPhone 8. Here's what has been said about the possibilities of each proposed device possibly seeing the light of day.
Will it be iPhone 7S or iPhone 8?
There have been credible sources suggesting that Apple will be releasing the iPhone 8 in 2017 since next year also happens to be the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone launch. With that being said, many analysts and credible people find it hard to see Apple going down its usual 'S' route in such an important year.
Possibility of an iPhone 7S
What Apple needs right now and in 2017 is an all-powerful and influential smartphone that will bring back the glory days and revitalize the slowing iPhone sales. Earlier, reports have already said that the company is looking towards producing an iPhone 8 with a screen that poses a higher resolution than the Galaxy S7. However, new information has come to light which could throw an iPhone 7S into the mix.
State of OLED and AMOLED displays
Reports have recently indicated that Apple could be struggling to get all the OLED panels that it requires for 2017. Reports have stated that "The four main suppliers for the said OLD panels will not have sufficient production capacity to produce screens for every new iPhone for next year, along with several constraints continuing into 2018."
Will there be three new iPhones in 2017?
There have been rumors circulating that Apple could potentially deliver three iPhone 8 models in 2017. However, with the revelation that OLED panels may not be available for such a lineup, has also sparked some new interests for the iPhone 7S. The reason is because while there will suppose to be enough panels to accommodate a certain number of iPhone 8s using OLED panels, Apple seems to be looking into producing two lower-spec handsets, both of which could either use AMOLED panels.
Sizes and variations
According to reports, each of the smartphones available for 2017 will also have different size displays. With the iPhone 8 sporting a projected 5.5-inch OLED, it could potentially be bezel-less. However, the detail is yet to be confirmed. As for what could potentially be the two iPhone 7S models, one could be a 4.7-inch variant, and the others are 5.1 or 5.2 inches. Again, no detail other than they could potentially be AMOLED-based has been confirmed.
No confirmation means no assurance
While rumors are still floating around being unconfirmed by an official Apple announcement, every bit of information here should be taken with a grain of salt. But with all of that said, most of these rumors are likely to happen, and it will only take an official announcement from Apple to make it more certain.

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.
Pokemon Go Tips: Finding Ultra Beast The Easy Way On Your Android Or iPhone
Once some bold and brave Pokémon adventurers have become the Alola Region Champion in Pokémon Sun and Moon, that doesn't mean players have anything left to do. If farming for some rare Pokémon or simply making friends isn't one's expertise, they can always opt to attempt to track down and capture the end game ultra beasts, which, as the name signifies, present an extreme challenge for even the best of Pokémon Sun and Moon trainers.
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. Since this year's iPhone models have already ditched the physical button and ultimately replaced it with a haptic simulation of a button press, it only made these rumors somewhat believable. But it will still be a huge shift since the home button performs multiple functions as of today.
Apple iPhone 8 Will Be The Greatest iPhone Ever Made, But Why?
Credible Sources on the iPhone 8 indicate that next year's iPhone would be the biggest one yet. With Apple deciding to release immediately a second interim upgrade for the iPhone 7, anticipations are higher than usual for what is to come next. Whether it will become the iPhone 7s, iPhone 8, or the 10th-Anniversary iPhone, at least either of these proposed models will be using an OLED display and will be big, which will potentially make it the greatest iPhone ever made.
