Apple just completed the finishing touches of its 10th anniversary iPhone, and it's currently testing the overhauled handset. Ten years after Steve Jobs held up the original iPhone to an adoring San Francisco crowd, the tech giant is now readying for the release of its most extensive iPhone lineup. One of which is the revamped version of an all-screen front, curved glass and stainless steel frame of the much-anticipated iPhone.
To give you a better visual on the upcoming anniversary Apple handset, imagine a nearly bezel-free slab of glass and stainless frame of steel or possibly aluminum. There will be no home button, and a stunning OLED display will be the central feature. If the new design sounds familiar to you, it's probably because you've already heard and seen the same style on Samsung's Galaxy S8.
According to Gizmodo, Apple's anniversary iPhone will give you a sense of deja vu, as the handset has the exact same series of redesigns as Samsung's Galaxy S8. Despite Apple's popular reputation as the big smartphone innovator, there is no doubt that is chasing Samsung this year. However, the tech company might still have a few tricks up its sleeve to surprise consumers.
One of those ace cards could be the groundbreaking software-based thumbprint recognition and the much-talked about multiple cameras on the front and back for augmented reality purposes. According to the Bloomberg, the company has been rumored to be working on augmented reality technology for a while now. So it's not such a far-fetched idea to expect any AR capabilities built into the iPhone to give you a unique platform.
Apple’s iPhone is the most important product of the company, representing about two-thirds of sales. It leads other Apple devices such as the iPad and Apple Watch and is the basis for other lucrative services like the App Store. Last year, Apple endured a rare sales slide on its iPhones, thus it's working hard to be able to compete with the market's leading smartphone brand and also as a way to commemorate its 10th year in the highly-competitive industry.
