We are likely at least two months from the release of the iPhone 8, assuming that’s what Apple actually settles on calling it. However, this is the time when the rumors of a device usually start taking shape into something more substantial than just conjecture over fakes and prototypes. So we should start to see a clear picture of the coming iPhone emerging, right? This year, the normal rules may not apply.
The Rundown is our recurring Facebook Live video segment that covers the site’s posts from the previous week, some Apple News, and some things that are coming soon on the site.

The tech blogosphere was awash in a new rumor that gained steam over a week and seemed to peak yesterday- Apple would abandon the Lightning Connector for the next iPhone, which will have a USB-C charging port. I was skeptical as soon as I heard this because it would frankly be so out of character for Apple. They have always preferred to stick with proprietary connectors on their mobile devices, and have never shown any signs of changing this philosophy. However, there were some heavy hitters, such as the Wall Street Journal, reporting this yesterday, so it gained a lot of steam….until today.
