iPhone 8 Rumours - Our Top 10!

It’s that time of year again when Apple are close to releasing their latest iPhone. There have been many iPhone 8 rumours over the past few months after information was allegedly leaked about the upcoming release. With all of us sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for Apple's 12th September event, it’s set to be another of Apple’s exciting releases.

So we decided to put together a top 10 list of the most common rumours we've heard. So here goes...

1. 5.8” OLED display.
By having an OLED display, it means that the phone will be a lot thinner and consume less battery power.

2. A new A11 processor.
The A11 processor will make this iPhone more efficient and faster.

3. Glass body.
Instead of the aluminium body used previously on the iPhone 5, 6 and 7, they will revert back to a glass body as featured on the iPhone 4.

4. Edge to edge display.
With a full edge to edge display, it will make for a much larger screen and overall better display.

5. Facial recognition will replace touch ID.
Having facial recognition will increase the security of your phone so that only you can unlock your phone. It will also make it quicker and a lot easier to unlock.

6. No home button/ virtual home button.
By having no home button or possibly a virtual home button, it means that the screen can extend down and be much larger.

7. Wireless charging.
We could be saying goodbye to the days of plugging your phone and being attached to a plug socket waiting for your phone to charge.

8. Notifications to be muted just by looking at the screen.
This feature will make muting notifications in situations when you can’t touch your phone stacks easier.

9. Dual lens camera.
With this new camera, some of the rumours are that the camera will be able to detect various different scenes and will adjust the shutter speed and aperture to ensure you get the best possible photo.

10. Waterproofing/ water resistant.
Waterproofing will come in very handy for those of us with butter fingers and who tend to drop their phone anywhere near water!

Even if only some of these rumours are true, it will be quite a change to any of the current iPhones. The removal of the home button would change that distinctive iPhone look that each phone has had previously.

As well as the iPhone 8, there are also rumours of Apple releasing another 2 phones, updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus and we do wonder about an updated SE model too. Only time will tell, so roll on September 12th :)

What do you think of these iPhone 8 rumours?
