[Official] iPhone 2017 (10th anniversary) speculations/discussions



Naming
No news on what the actual name will be for this year.

For sure there will be iPhone 7s/7s Plus

and then iPhone 8? or iPhone X? I am more inclined to the latter as it will move itself away from Samsung Galaxy S numbering. but who knows?

maybe we might just end up with 1x new colour for the anniversary edition?

2007 - iPhone
2008 - iPhone 3G
2009 - iPhone 3GS
2010 - iPhone 4 (new design)
2011 - iPhone 4s
2012 - iPhone 5 (new design)
2013 - iPhone 5s
2014 - iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (new design)
2015 - iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
2016 - iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
2017 - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus?
Design
So far the only leaked prototypes...

Alleged iPhone 8 Schematic Depicts Dual-Lens Vertical Rear Camera, Hints at Wireless Charging - 26 April 2017


Early prototypes show that there is a hole at the back of the phone.
Most likely it will house the TouchID if Apple failed to get TouchID working on the new LED display.

I for one is against having TouchID on the back. If you own 4.7" iPhone 6/7 and you have normal hands, you will know that your index finger almost always ended up resting on the Apple logo and not anywhere near what is shown in the early prototypes.

For reference:
iPhone 7: 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm
iPhone 7+: 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm

Camera
According to Japanese site Mac Otakara, the high-end 5-inch iPhone Apple plans on introducing could adopt a new vertical dual camera arrangement instead of a horizontal dual camera system.

iPhone 8. This is how it will look like.



Well, you can question if is that the REAL DEAL... but lewis have been very spot on, so far, 100% from his leak of previous 6, 6S and 7.

So i believe that is how the 8 will look like. Enjoy!

We've decided to make this thread an official one because it's far more informative.
Thanks OP!

looking at the latest leak..
I think there is a fatal flaw in design if this is proof to be the real thing..

the flash is between the 2 lenses

New 'iPhone 8' Renders Shared Online Based on Alleged Leaked CAD Images


Mobile phone leaker @OnLeaks and tech blog @GearIndia posted a series of high-quality renders on Tuesday that claim to be based on leaked factory CAD images of Apple's upcoming OLED iPhone.
as usual, the low yield is going to be a problem. unless they push TouchID to the back. and fix it for next year's model.
Apple is thought to be testing several prototypes for its redesigned "tenth anniversary" iPhone and rumors have toed and froed over whether production is behind schedule or on course for a September launch, when it is expected to be announced alongside the so-called iPhone 7S and 7S Plus. The last word on the subject comes from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who implied that this year's shortage could be more "severe" than in previous years, suggesting the phone could be hard to come by for several months after launch.
AirPod 6-weeks order situation incoming?

Apple granted patents on a curved bezel-free screen and integrated Touch ID sensor
Apple has been granted two new patents that are particularly interesting to anyone who’s been following the iPhone 8 rumor mill: a patent for “Reducing the border area of a device” and one for a fingerprint sensor embedded directly in a screen, as spotted by Patently Apple.
guess it's happening?
