Down below we have listed down what you can expect from this big Apple event this year:
• The iPhone 8:
The tenth anniversary iPhone which might be called the iPhone edition, iPhone X or iPhone 8 will rock a 5.8 inch edge to edge display with a small cut out up top for the ear piece and front camera. This bezel less display technology has quickly turned out to to be the standard on the flagship smart phones.
It will be the first iPhone that is expected to feature an OLED Display. Apple is finally getting rid of their typical IPS LCDs and is switching to OLED which provides brighter color, more contrast and the black is true black because the pixels are not lighted up.
OLED Display is not the only big change made to the iPhone. This time there will no home button on the phone which has been the attribute of every iPhone since ten years. It is rumored that there will be “virtual area” at the bottom of the screen which will respond various gestures and taps to let you navigate iOS.
There will be no Touch ID or finger print scanner due to the loss of the home button. Instead, there will be an infrared scanner that will use facial recognition software to unlock the device. This technology is said to super snappy and fast.
This technology is similar to the facial recognition technology found in the latest Samsung Galaxy S8.
It will track and detect your face which would allow the iPhone to mute notification sound when you’re are looking at the phone so the people around you won’t get annoyed.
An iPad inspired app dock might be seen on the new iPhone 8. Charging technology has also been upgraded and for the first time Apple users will experience wireless charging that will of course require a charging pad which is not included in the package and will be sold separately.
It will have a new dual camera system with augmented reality support. Apple might even show the new AR apps made with ARKit.
According to a report from iPhone leaker Benjamin Geskin, the iPhone 8 will come in three colors. The standard white and black color and a new champagne gold color.
This flagship device will at least cost around $1000 in the United States. Some sources have claimed it to be more expensive.
• The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus:
Apple is also releasing an upgrade to their last flagship devices iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The design of 7S and 7S Plus will be identical to the last year means it will have a home button and larger bezels. It will be powered by the A11 processor that will be in the iPhone 8.
This phone will be a great option for those who want to pick up a new iPhone without breaking up the bank.
