With WWDC now long behind us, the next big event on Apple’s schedule is the introduction of the highly anticipated iPhone 8. If history is any indication, Apple’s iPhone 8 unveiling will take place sometime in September with a massive launch set to take place shortly thereafter.
This year, Apple will reportedly introduce three new iPhone models; an iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and the iPhone 8. Nonetheless, it goes without saying that the iPhone 8 will be the star of the show.
Over the last few weeks and months, we’ve seen a number of conflicting reports surrounding the iPhone 8’s final design.
While some reports have suggested that the iPhone 8’s Touch ID sensor will be located on the back, it now appears that such rumors were based on iPhone 8 prototypes that thankfully won’t enter mass production.
Instead, word is that Apple has worked past previous technical hurdles and has figured out a way to embed the Touch ID sensor into the display itself.
At this point, it’s a safe bet that the iPhone 8 design is already finalized, as evidenced by the proliferation of leaks from case manufacturers. In a similar vein, we’ve also seen a number of iPhone 8 screen protector leaks which purport to be based on Apple’s final iPhone 8 design.
One such leak surfaced this past Friday and corroborates earlier reports that the iPhone 8 design will essentially consist of one giant piece of glass. While we’ll know the exact measurements this fall, rumor is that the bezels on the iPhone 8 will check it at just 4mm all round.
