Many predictions about the upcoming iPhone 8 were revealed by tech analysts.  One is the forecasted release of the iPhone 8 on the iPhone's 10-year anniversary this year.  It is sais to skip the 'S' generation in recognition of its major updates set to feature "significant innovations" such as a full-glass OLED screen, with new and upgraded haptic feedback features, wireless charging and numerous major specs improvements which include the camera and processor.

iPhone 8 Could Ditch The Aluminum Body For A Stainless Steel Frame

One persistent speculation that we keep hearing about is a redesign. The latest supply chain checks from a source suggest that Apple might adopt a stainless steel forging process" for the iPhone 8's frame to go with its new glass back. The metal bezel will be built of stainless steel using a forging process to enhance its durability and reduce costs and manufacturing time. Although not confirmed by any means, the leak seems to corroborate previous rumors that claimed the iPhone 8 will hark back to the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S's classical "glass sandwich" design. The idea that Apple is preparing a mostly-glass iPhone for this fall season was first brought up by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is already a reliable insider when it comes anything about Apple. Kuo revealed in April of last year that the iPhone 8 will be having glass panels on its back and front with a steel band to hold these two together.

iPhone 8 And The New Design

The next-generation iPhone is set to ditch its conventional aluminum back cover design and will adopt a new design using two reinforced glass panels and a metal frame in the middle. With 10 years of iPhone monotony under its belt, there's a great pressure for Apple to deliver an iPhone 8 with a new design and revolutionary features that will truly blow people away.
