2017 will indicate the 10th wedding anniversary of the iPhone, and Apple has something major prepared to commemorate the occasion. We’re greater than a year from the unveiling of the iPhone 8, but because of Apple’s aggressive strategies for these devices, there already are a good amount of rumors hinting at the impressive features to arrive the 2017 iPhone.
Apple is rumored to be evaluating more than ten prototype iPhone models, so it is not entirely clear what we will see, and because there are so many test devices in play, rumors are conflicting and murky at the moment also.
Rumors suggest it will likely be a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge screen that eliminates the very best and bottom level bezels where features like the Touch Identification fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead, Touch Identification and the camera may be included in the screen straight, signifying you will see no Home button. Jony Ive has wished to introduce an iPhone that appears like an individual sheet of glass for quite some time, and a cup is essential if Apple would like to present cellular charging also.
With an edge-to-edge design, the screen would take up the complete leading off the iPhone, but it is not clear if the screen will grow to match the iPhone or the iPhone will be shrunken right down to fit the screen (rumors suggest Apple use a 5.5-inches or larger display). The screen itself is reported to be flexible OLED rather than an LCD, allowing Apple to create a leaner device that uses less power and will be offering an improved screen with higher compare ratio and even more accurate colors. It could feature ends that are relatively curved on both attributes also, but rumors are unclear upon this right point.
As for the physical body, rumours suggest Apple is finally heading to move from the aluminum found in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, and SE, instead re-adopting a cup body that’s like the body that was discovered in the Apple iPhone 4 4. At least one iPhone model to arrive 2017 use a glass body, relating to Apple distributor Catcher Technology, and matching to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the cup will be built around an aluminium or stainless body.
