New Apple Leaks Indicate the iPhone 8 Will Be Colorful and Massive


The iPhone 8's on screen, virtual home button will be resizable, with the ability to hide when apps are in full screen mode.

The info comes courtesy once again of developer Steve Troughton-Smith and his exploration of the Apple HomePod firmware code, which is proving a veritable treasure trove of hints regarding the iPhone 8.

Some Twitter users are awaiting the new iPhone with anticipation while others are not impressed.

With the iPhone 8 set to have an all-screen front, this means that a small section at the bottom may not be useable for apps, web browsing and other functionality.

But that notch ruins the phone's flawless symmetry, which is why the iPhone 8's design is such a hotly debated story. According to several reports and rumours - and now hands-on videos - the new iPhone 8 will be radically different to the iPhone 7.

The first of the dummy units that were are talking about today is a black one. The device will feature dual-lens vertical cameras. It also has the glass back that rumors say will come on the device.

We reported this week that supply chain sources have claimed that the iPhone 8 and new iPhone models have entered mass production. This information seems to have been confirmed by Apple's own software. We're not sure if it's going to feature OLED tech, but in size terms it trumps Apple's previous handset.

Apple is expected to officially unveil their new range of iPhone devices including the Apple's 10th anniversary iPhone during September 2017 and as soon as more specifications all details are announced we will keep you up to speed as always.

Because it doesn't have any bezels, the iPhone 8 has a screen similar to that of the iPhone 7 Plus, despite being only slightly bigger than the normal iPhone 7.
