The iPhone 8 Rumors Are All Adding Up Now

I have been pretty critical of the insanity of this year’s upgrade cycle up to this point. It has been non-stop, wall-to-wall pictures and leaks and guesses, and worst of all, over-reactions and illegitimate comparisons with already released devices. However, with all of the money that is riding on getting real information on the iPhone 8 early, and with lots of sticky fingers and loose lips all along the supply chain, the details were eventually going to come out. Apple’s current focus on secrecy aside, this was all but inevitable.

Apple Slices: New Devices Coming into Clearer Focus

As all Apple fans know by now, someone at Apple dropped the ball. An early firmware for the HomePod leaked after being uploaded to an Apple software server, and it has shed light on all kinds of things. Beyond some details on its namesake, we now have what looks to be confirmation of the shape and basic design of the iPhone 8, news LTE on an upcoming Apple Watch, and even details about an upgrade to the Apple TV. And this is only a small part of the news for the last week or so, so let’s dive right in.

iPhone 8 Rumors- Apple Involvement?


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 iPhone 8- Touch ID is Not the Same as the Headphone Jack


I have taken a pretty hard stance of avoiding all of the too-early to mean anything rumor madness surrounding the coming iPhone 8. We are getting close to the point where the rumors will start to become more and more consistent as the device that will become the new flagship iPhone heads toward final production. Until then, we still have a few back and forth debates raging over whether certain features will be either disabled at release to be turned on with a later update, or cut from the device altogether. I discussed three of these features in question in yesterday’s article, The iPhone 8- A “Sense of Panic” Might Be Just What the Doctor Ordered, and Touch ID was among them.

The iPhone 8- A “Sense of Panic” Might Be Just What the Doctor Ordered


I read an article by Mark Sullivan of Fast Company today about rumors of a “sense of panic” surrounding unfinished hardware and software features of the coming iPhone 8. There has been absolutely no shortage of rumors about this device, and that will only get worse as we get closer to the Fall, so that doesn’t make this piece remarkable. However, most of those rumors are coming from leaks in the supply chain overseas. The difference here is that Mr Sullivan is actually claiming that this information is coming from a source from within Apple. Whatever you think about that, the article itself is far more balanced and informative than most iPhone 8 rumor pieces, so I recommend taking the time to read it.

Apple Granted Patent for Fingerprint Reader Integrated in Display


It seems like the rumors of an iPhone 8 with an edge-to-edge screen, no Home Button and TouchID integrated into the display are getting to the point where that are looking less like rumors, and more like legitimate leaks. Apple has now been awarded a patent for technology covering a fingerprint sensor integrated into a screen for authentication.
