The latest Apple smartphones have received somewhat mixed reactions around the globe, which makes it even more challenging for Cupertino giant to come with something that can be accounted as a game changer or at least first of its kind.
That said, Apple has already started working on the next iteration of iPhone and here are 5 things that you must know about it.
Made in Israel?
As per reports, Apple has set its base in Israel to manufacture the next year's iPhone 8. Apple uses the R&D facility in Herzliya (Israel) to develop iPhone's hardware such as chips, storage, cameras and wireless technologies. The Herzliya office is Apple's second largest R&D facility in the world.
All-Glass body and Edge-to-Edge design
As per the information, the iPhone 8 is said to include an all-glass body and an edge-to-edge display with the camera and Touch ID integrated into it. This will make iPhone 8 the first smartphone from the house of Apple to feature an edge-to-edge panel.
While Apple has already put an impressive camera hardware on the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 is going to further step up the game by integrating an all new camera hardware. An Apple employee has confirmed the camera upgrade to Business Insider, but did not talk anything specific about the camera sensor or megapixel count. We believe Apple is going to improve on its dual-camera setup, which might become a standard feature in the next year iPhones.
No traditional Home button
The latest Apple handsets already packs in an updated Home button, which unlike the previous iPhone 6s/6s Plus does not offer a clickable feedback. It works on a new taptic engine to serve the various tasks. And this might also change with next year's iPhone as Apple is expected to get away with the traditional Home button styling.
With iPhone 8, Apple is going to offer wireless charging. A number of Android smartphones already offer the feature and it is time Apple also integrate the same in its most popular product.
