Top 5 iPhone 8 rumorsWe rank the biggest rumors from most certain to least.
These are the top five iPhone 8 rumors. Officially, we don't know that Apple is working on an iPhone 8 but it seems logical Apple will be working on a special phone since the iPhone turned ten years old. There are tons and tons of reports about this thing already. So how are we ranking these rumors? Certainty. Let's go from most certain to the least certain. [MUSIC] And number five of the rumor of the IPHONE8, who have an ALL-SCREEN DESIGN. This is incredibly likely. You seen images floating around on line, showing a font funnel with a knot on the top for front facing camera and ear speaker. Also, Apple's competitors had made the move to more screen less fessel on your phones. Take a look at the S8 or the essential phone. It's only a matter of time before this is a reality for Apple. Number four the iPhone 8 will have vertical rear cameras. Some cases for the iPhone 8 have popped up, and they've got an unusual cutout on the back. Instead of the horizontal dual camera assembly Found on the iPhone 7+ the cameras are aligned vertically. The design change also seem like a good way for the next iPhone to be immediately recognizable even from the back of the device. At number three is $1000 price tag. Here's what things get more uncertain, analysts are split on the idea of whether Apple would actually pull the trigger on $1000 price tag for its phone. The iPhone 8 is expected to use an OLED screen and house some expensive internal components. So if Apple wants to maintain its profit margins a high price could make sense. Additionally Apple is expected to introduce. Three iPhones this year. So maybe the pricing with the premium iPhones could reach the $1,000 mark. And number two is that ship date. iPhones traditionally are announced and released in September. The rumors say there are some issues in Apple supply chain that could delay the iPhone 8 from shipping until perhaps October or November. However, there are contrary reports saying Apple should be all set for September. So maybe it'll be here in September, or maybe not. ANd then, number one is the fate of touch ID. There have been all kinds of conflicting reports on what will happen with Apple's finger print sensor. At first, rumor said, Apple would embed a sensor in the display. Then other reports popped up, saying Apple was having some trouble, and will place a touch ID on the back of the iPhone. The latest from a reputable analyst suggests APple would drop Touch ID completely from the iPhone 8, instead relying on facial scanning. So there's pretty much no clear idea of what Apple will do when it comes to Touch ID on the iPhone 8 Apple has got some steep competition so its next phone needs to really stand out.
