The product stack I described above could be quite effective in pushing current iPhone users to upgrade to new models.
The Wall Street Journal believes that Apple will be releasing a foray of products during its September 12 keynote, which will include the Apple Watch Series 3 and an Apple TV that will provide support for HDR and 4K video playback.
Dow Jones said on Monday that Apple will host its iPhone 8 reveal party on September 12, according to CNBC. The device will reportedly pack a 3D sensor for detecting a user's face, a fingerprint reader on the back, and a new OLED display that fills up nearly the entire front of the phone.
Also, reports show that Apple has called on Samsung to secure more chips as it speculates that iPhone 8 could hit 30 percent shortage in memory chip supply. That said, it's also worth noting that images of alleged iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s parts started to appear online only after we heard that 2017 iPhone production had begun, so the timing is certainly right for even more leaks.
This "3D" sensor could be used to add people's faces into apps or games, or for facial recognition. The traditional charging cable won't be there in the iPhone's latest updated version and it will rather use wireless charging-completely and strictly-no hard feelings, guys.
Once again, none of this is confirmed by Apple, and you will have to wait until the September release of the iPhone 8 to confirm or deny the rumors.
iPhone sales, Apple's most important business, have slowed in the past two years as the iPhone 7's design was largely the same as its predecessors.
There's also been brief talk of a smart camera, a Touch ID on the back side of the phone and possibly wireless charging. This emans that where the iPhone 7 has a 1,960 mAh battery, and the 7 Plus has a 2,900 mAh battery, the iPhone 8 could ship with a 2,700 mAh battery.
Even though there are now no new phones out to buy, it hasn't stopped multiple companies from announcing new products for the forthcoming iPhone, basing their designs on the leaks and rumors to date.
