Apple to renovate its iPhone design on 10th anniversary

Apple to renovate its iPhone design on 10th anniversary

Ten years after Steve Jobs held up the original iPhone to a gushing San Francisco crowd, Apple Inc.is planning its most extensive iPhone lineup to date.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg report says, "Apple is preparing three iPhones for launch as soon as this fall, including upgraded versions of the current two iPhone models and a new top-of-the-line handset with an overhauled look".

While Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition) is expected to boast many advanced features, including wireless charging, a massive OLED display, IP68 dust- and water-proof certification and more, many of these advancements won't necessarily be new to the smartphone space; but rather, will merely be new to Apple.

According to the Bloomberg report, the company is now testing new smartphones, not one, but there are two new smartphones, aside from the iPhone 8, set to arrive this year.

According to them, Apple is testing new screen for that model which is said to cover the front of the device entirely and also the home button will be integrated into the screen itself.

However, that stance backfired as the company's stocks fell and there was a call to boycott the airlines by the customers. Still, outside O'Hare, protests continued on Wednesday. "I have to fix that, and I think that's something we can do".

For the premium model, Apple is testing a screen that covers nearly the entire front of the device, according to people familiar with the matter.

The new screen shape reinforces the expectation that the iPhone 8 will have a larger 5.8-inch OLED that will be almost edge-to-edge in design - or, in other words, a screen about the size of the iPhone 7 Plus in a phone about the size of the iPhone 7. The curves are similar in shape to those on the front of the iPhone 7. For now, the company is said to ship OLED panels from Samsung since others are not capable of supplying 100 million of panels to them. Yes, the screen itself won't be curved, but the glass on the front and back of the new device will be. Even Samsung, which produces screens in house and has been using AMOLED for years, still has problems with its screens.

The schematic, which a watermark suggests has been obtained through the Chinese social network QC, appears to reveal the design details of the rear panel of the iPhone 8.

Spokespeople for Apple and Samsung declined to comment. Samsung also tried this approach for the S8, but ended up installing a more standard fingerprint reader on the back of its phone due to the challenges.

It is also said that the Apple is working a significant camera changes for the iPhone 8 and their future devices and may include a new dual-camera system.
