Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. It appears that Apple will be ditching the physical Home button in favor of a virtual one.
Is there anything more annoying than being subjected to the beeps, bloops and dings of a stranger's frantic WhatsApp group chat? The Home button's absence has apparently caused the delay, with the Herald's source adding: "Fingerprint scanning, which plays a crucial role in safeguarding payment solution Apple Pay, needs to be fault-free". This leads us to think that the default color of the Home button will be something that blends well in every colored background.
Speaking of its features and specifications, the source revealed that iPhone 8 along with the two new models will support fast charging. But following this, the flagship iPhone 8, with its OLED screen and infrared sensor, will be in short supply until later in the year. However, only 5.15-inches will be usable. It's unclear whether other functions will become available within this area. Similar to the new MacBook Pro, the bottom area or the Function area will be exclusively reserved for system and functions.
A photo leaked that allegedly shows off 3 dummy units that have been placed in mass production. If you are viewing this piece on another website, it was illegally stolen and reposted in violation of USA & global copyright legislation. It's supposedly going to have a taller screen that is going to completely fill the front of the device, except for the speaker, camera and sensors at the top.
2017 iPhones to reportedly come in three colors
Yesterday we heard the iPhone 8 will launch along side the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus in September and today we're hearing it's not coming until November because basically no one really knows what Apple has planned for its next smartphone refresh. Stay tuned with us for more details on the gen-next iPhone.
This is it for now, folks. For all iPhone variants, the wall adapter and the Lightning-to-USB-C cable will be sold separately.
Troughton looked through the leaked iOS code, which comes once again from the unreleased HomePod's firmware. If we had to guess, this would be an optional feature that Apple would let users turn on or off.
