Apple is yet to reveal what the iPhone 8 specs and features will be but there are already a lot of predictions. Recent reports indicate that the tech giant is going to introduce a device that is capable of long range charging. Aside from that, there are also rumors that this iDevice will be the most durable product in Apple's history.
Apple's Most Durable Phone
Apple has been in a creative slump. Competitors like Samsung and HTC are beating the Cupertino-based company in launching the newest smartphone features. Since the iPhone 8 will commemorate the iPhone's 10th anniversary, tech watchers and consumers are expecting Apple to do a complete redesign.
Latest reports suggest that the iPhone 8 is designed to be more resistant to damage and breakage compared to its predecessors. Durability has never been Apple's strong point. In fact, the company received much criticism after the release of bendy iPhone 6 units.
Apple might use the iPhone 8 to regain the market's trust on the durability of its iPhones. Despite having an all-glass body similar to the iPhone 4 and 4S, the iPhone 8 will be more durable thanks to a stainless steel frame. Reports reveal that Apple might do away with its conventional back cover design and opt for reinforced glass panels with the iPhone 8. Forged stainless steel will serve as the metal bezel, which could drive the costs down while making phones sturdier.
iPhone 8 Rumor Roundup
There are numerous rumors surrounding Apple's iPhone 8 and an OLED screen seems to be a sure thing. Prior reports revealed that Apple increased its orders for OLED screens. Insiders also revealed that the company will release three new iPhone models in 2017.
The iPhone 8 could have zero bezels and no Home button. The device might also have a curved edge display, a longer battery life and it will run with an A11 chipset. Some reports also indicate that its flagship phone will run on iOS 11.
