iPhone 8's five best (and most likely) features

  iPhone 8's five best (and most likely) features Here are five of the hottest expected features for what’s generally referred to as the “iPhone 8” or “10th Anniversary iPhone” or, more recently, the “iPhone Pro."The highly-anticipated “iPhone 8” is rumored to break a lot of ground for Apple, including a much-improved Retina display.

In all likelihood Apple is preparing to unveil not one, not two, but three new iPhones at its keynote in September, the exact date of which has yet to be revealed. In addition to upgrades to the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple is expected to launch a totally new model equipped with exclusive technologies to mark the tenth anniversary of the world's leading smartphone.

The future iPhone range could feature phones in three sizes: 4.7 inches, 5.5 inches and 5.8 inches. If so, the new 5.8-inch model, an unprecedented format for Apple, could be equipped with an edge-to-edge OLED display.

iPhone 7S dummy model points to a glass back and wireless charging

  iPhone 7S dummy model points to a glass back and wireless charging Apple could be switching things up, if a couple of purported iPhone dummy models are to be believed. 9to5Mac received a couple images from leak specialist Sonny Dickson that depict next iteration of iPhones with a glass backing, which could mean that the models could have inductive charging as a feature. Apple is expected to announce three new iPhone models next month: the iPhone 8, which will be a major overhaul for the phone — and which might not arrive until 2018, as well as a refresh to the iPhone 7 models.

Adding to the earlier leaks that suggested iPhone 6 will reach stores in August, the newer ones claim that the device will go in mass production next month and hit stores in September. Moreover, prolific apple tipster Sonny Dickson has also given a sneak peek of both models.

But what will it offer and when will it launch? We gather what we know so far . And when is it going to arrive? We 're now about two months shy of when Apple typically unveils its new iPhones , so lets compile everything together.

Interest is evidently focused on this device. To begin with, what will it be called: the "iPhone 8", the "iPhone Edition", or something else altogether? With only a few weeks to go, specialized websites have already published supposedly leaked photos and technical specs.

If these are to be believed, Apple aims to provide the new model with a 5.8-inch display mounted on a body that would normally accommodate a 4.7-inch screen. In other words, the display would cover nearly the entire facade of the phone. Given that a range of sensors are usually located in the lower part of the face, there may be a fingerprint reader under the screen, or perhaps the "Home" button will be axed.

As for photo capability, the future iPhone is expected to have dual rear cameras, similar to the iPhone 7 Plus's, but with new filming options. Both front and back cameras are expected to be capable of recording 4K video.

Leak shows the iPhone 8 is all screen and no home button

  Leak shows the iPhone 8 is all screen and no home button Much of the recen ttalk surrounding the iPhone 8 has focussed on its hardware. Now, courtesy of a new leak, we can go back to speculating its design. 

Reports in February claimed the new iPhone will cost $ 1 ,000 (£800), which might sound like a lot, but it is worth remembering that the iPhone 7 starts at £599 and goes all the way up to £919 for the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus, or 9 in the US .

With about two months to go until the Apple iPhone 6 announcement, we find ourselves in the in-between period where we ’re dying to find out whether or not we should buy Apple’s soon-to-be-announced next-generation smartphone or pass up the “Apple” for something else.

On track for augmented reality?

The device that the media have dubbed the "iPhone 8" may also benefit from a wireless magnetic charging system. This technology, already used in the Apple Watch, is said to be high on users' wishlists.

Finally, the new iPhone might come equipped with 3D facial recognition sensors, a feature that would serve not only to unlock the device, but also to validate Apple Pay and App Store purchases.

The Touch ID functionality may be rendered obsolete or placed beneath the screen, something that is technically quite difficult to achieve. New sensors in tandem with iOS 11 could pave the way for the augmented reality applications that are close to the heart of Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The launch date for the extraordinary new iPhone remains uncertain, but it is expected that the upgraded iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will, as usual, go on sale some ten days after the keynote.

Some analysts believe that the three models will all be released at the same time, but that the new device will only be available in a very limited edition, while others predict a separate fall launch.

All the new iPhones are expected to be equipped with the new A11 processor, which is faster and uses less power than the current A10.

Tips For Photographing The Eclipse .
This event is especially rare because it can be seen in any part of the continental U.S. The U.S. will experience a total eclipse on Monday, with the moon blocking out the sun for a period of time starting on the West Coast around 10 a.m. PDT and ending on the East Coast around 3 p.m. EDT. The last time an eclipse was visible in the continental U.S. was 1979, so it’s worth trying to capture this rare event with your camera or iPhone. The “totality” eclipse, where the sun will be entirely covered by the moon, will only happen in about a 70-mile swath across the U.S. Most people will get only a partial eclipse.
