However, even after including the water resistance support for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the company is not providing any warranty for any phone that incurred damage with water. It's pretty much obvious that Apple won't provide any support for the upcoming iPhone 8 as well.

Earlier rumors suggested that Apple is planning to embed an all-glass body with the iPhone 8 along with a bezel-less display. Apple ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and with the iPhone 8, they are planning to get rid of the home button as well.

That said, all these are just rumors, and some of them might not get into the final design of the phone.
