Apple is undeniably one of the most talked-about smartphone brands in the world. With that said, each of their flagship product gets rumored from the time its predecessor gets unveiled. This is exactly what's happening to the 2017 iPhones. By the moment the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus got released, rumors about their successors already started to surface online. The interesting thing about it is that not all rumors that come out about the next iPhone agree with each other. There are leaks and hints that are somewhat contradictory. Nevertheless, we can just all read between the lines and hope for the best. Here's what's known about Apple's 2017 releases so far.
Apple iPhone 8 Rumors
The iPhone 8 is expected to be a very premium iPhone release. Apart from the rumored change in shape (curved edges), the phone is also expected to come with a glass body, Mac Rumors reported. This means that the alleged iPhone 8 could have a full-display frontal with a smooth surface. The fingerprint scanner will instead be placed underneath the display as the home button is ditched. The front camera should also be tucked below the glass display. On top of that, the device could also be wireless charging-enabled.
Apple iPhone 7S And 7S Plus Rumors
The most recent news shocked a large number of Apple followers. Apparently, it was implied that the 2017 iPhones will be comprised of an iPhone 7S and 7S Plus instead of the earlier rumored iPhone 8. As per a GSM Arena report, this information leak started from a Taiwan-based supplier who also added that the said phones will include a red variant. Apparently, this has led to the assumption that the iPhone 8 rumors have been a big lie all along. Nevertheless, it's still worth noting that one of the earlier rumors about the iPhone 8 is that it will come with three variants. This could still mean that the iPhone 8, 7S, and 7S Plus could all be shown off next year, with the iPhone 8 being the premium model and the 7S and 7S Plus being the regular iPhone successors.
Apple iPhone 2017 Conclusions
With that said, it's important to note that Apple hasn't given out any solid info yet. What is certain at this point is that the next generation of iPhones would show up next year, as what Apple has always been doing. Whether or not the supposed iPhone 8 will be absent next year, it might be too early to assume.
Right now, we can only say that Apple rumors usually turn out to be true. They may not be a hundred percent accurate, but most of the time, they end up being true. If you remember months before the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus' arrival, there were rumors about the ditching of the headphone jack. As ridiculous as that news may have been earlier, it actually ended up being true. As for the iPhone 8, a bunch of rumors have already surfaced for the device to actually be a pigment of imagination. It could as well come with a different name, but it's hard to believe that all those rumors did not root from anything.
