7 New Features Expected In the iPhone 8
Apple iPhone 8 – 7 Amazing New Features
Apple’s tenth anniversary phone is set to launch in a few months. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has
already dropped hints that there are ‘exciting things in the pipeline’. The release is expected
around the end of this year. Will the iPhone 8 be as pathbreaking as it’s original counterpart
launched 10 years ago, or will be a mere upgrade. Don’t get me wrong, the iPhone 7 and the
iPhone 7 plus were great – they were among the best in 2016. But, there was nothing radical
about the design; it was rather a very good upgrade. Speaking of the iPhone 8, here are some
features likely to be introduced:
1. OLED display
The flexible plastic OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display makes the device thinner that
allows Apple to consume less power and offers a better display with high contrast ratio.
2. Glass body
For the body, Apple is eventually going to move away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5
and iPhone 6 series and replace the gorilla glass 4 used in the iPhone 4 (launched in 2011) by
sapphire glass protection which is unbreakable.
3. Faster A11 processor
Inside, the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip that will be faster and efficient
than the A10 processor in iPhone 7.
4. Edge-to- edge display
The Apple iPhone 8 will have an edge-to- edge display, with no cut-out for the home button. It
would be able to sense and analyze fingerprints on any edge.
5. Wireless charging
The wireless charging range of iPhone 8 could be 15 feet. This feature was ruled out in iPhone 7.
6. No home button
Rumors suggest that iPhone 8 does not include a dynamic home button, i.e., the touch ID will be
built into the display. It might be sensitive to gestures. Besides that, the front camera will also be
built into that display.
7. Water resistant
Like iPhone 7, iPhone 8 might have improved with IP68-rated water resistant, which is the
advance of IP67- certified to iPhone 7 and iPhone plus.
As per International Protection Rating (IP code),
– IP first number – Protection against solid objects.
– IP second number – Protection against liquids.
I.e., In the IP68 rating – 6 refers to dust proof, and the number 8 refers to water resistant.
Apple usually releases its iPhone updates in September, so that we can expect iPhone 8 in
September of 2017.
