A lot of rumors have been flying around about the upcoming iPhone 8 and what we might see in Apple’s latest iteration. Though the iPhone saw a decrease in sales in 2016, there’s no denying the popularity of the device or the loyalty of its followers. 212 million iPhones sold last year and consumers are excited to know what’s next.
Here’s a quick rundown of what we know so far about what to expect from the upcoming iPhone 8:
- 5.8″ OLED display
- Faster A11 processor
- Glass body
- Edge-to-edge display
- Camera and Touch ID integrated in display
- No Home button
- Wireless charging
- Three models – One OLED, two standard
Certainly the most interesting items on this list are the integrated Touch ID with no Home button. It has been reported that Apple has been working diligently to overcome this obstacle as no OEM has achieved this feat to date.

There are also rumors that the new iPhone could feature a 3D sensing, front-facing camera to finally give the iPhone access to facial and iris recognition. The feature, if true, could also be leveraged for AR/VR applications in the future.
