Apple is suggested to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of the original iPhone by unveiling three different smartphones. These anticipated mobile devices are said to be the iPhone 7S, 7S Plus, as well as the most controversial iPhone 8.

CEO Robert Hwang of a Taiwanese iPhone assembler Wistron, reportedly announced that an upcoming 5.5-inch Apple iPhone will be both waterproof and feature the original wireless charging plan. According to CNET, the mentioned iPhone is assumed to be the rumored 7S Plus.

The Taiwanese group is currently in the process of assembling the iPhone SE. Aside from that, Wistron was also tasked with assembling an upcoming iPhone 7S Plus. In fact, in a shareholders' meeting last Wednesday, CEO Hwang highlighted some new adjustments for the phone. "Assembly process for the previous generations of have not changed much," said Hwang. He also mentioned that new features such as waterproof and wireless charging are "now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit."

Alongside working on the 5.5-inch iPhone, Wistron is also said to working on a 4.7-inch iPhone. This smaller Apple iPhone device is assumed to be the iPhone 7S and a new premium iPhone with a slightly curved screen should be the upcoming iPhone 8. However, as reported by Daily Mail, the Cupertino-based company didn't specify changes for the other two models.

The anticipated iPhone 8, which will be the flagship mobile device of Apple, is rumored to get huge new premium features. The points include an OLED screen, an implanted fingerprint scanner, as well as an AR functionality. However, there could be a drawback to continuing with this all new features because reports claim that Apple is struggling to incorporate those features.

If Apple will still continue such thing, the 10th year anniversary iPhone could soon cost over $1,000. Aside from that, there's also now the potential for an astound launch. Releasing a more simply upgraded iPhone 7S and 7S Plus first before the iPhone 8 may invite people who still want a new iPhone without having to pay a bigger price.
