Before Apple initiates mass production in the middle of September, the iPhone 8 is expected to undergo product verification test this August. The iPhone maker reported $1.67 earnings per share for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.57 by $0.10.
Finally, Gene Munster at LoupVentures reports that Apple supplier Lumentum has announced a huge increase in 3D sensing laser components orders, hinting at AR features arrival on the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 is expected to sport some significant changes, and a hoard of leaks corroborates that effort.
All information available about the iPhone 8 suggests the phone will look incredible and that it will be another Apple success.
Yield rates for Apple's specific panels are said to be at around 80% and 60% for 6-inch panels and 5.8-inch panels respectively. Qi wireless charging is in line with rumours that have predicted the iPhone 8 will support inductive charging rather than a true wireless charging feature. To place this in setting, Apple sold 41M iPhones in Q3 2017 and the recently discharged iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus represented right around 25M of them in spite of just being on sale for half a month.

Guilherme Rambo has found out a piece of code in the HomePod firmware related to the iPhone 8 which looks like this - "TLAttentionAwarenessObserver". Also, the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus are going to sport horizontal dual-lens camera setups at the back while Apple's tenth anniversary handset is going to rock a vertical design. This design decision has been heavily rumored, as it allows Apple to adopt an all-screen front aesthetic, similar to what everyone has seen from the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6 earlier this year. Differences in size between the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7s Plus, however, are nonexistent.
