CLEVELAND, Ohio – Smartphone enthusiasts and Apple diehards have spent much of the past year anticipating the iPhone 8.
While Apple has yet to confirm anything about its new smartphone, or the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus for that matter, there are rumors upon rumors.
Pulling all of the speculation together can be an arduous task. So we thought we’d help you out.
Here are the things we’re fairly confident we know about Apple’s forthcoming iPhones, including when they might ship and what they might cost.
When do the new phones come out?
Let’s get right into the biggest question consumers have. Most rumors indicate the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus will arrive at some point in August or September, while the iPhone 8 will likely ship in October or November.
But you'll see them at the same time
Apple has yet to announce the date for its next live event. But it’s assumed all three phones will be revealed at the same time, despite being shipped on different dates.
Apple will introduce OLED technology, the kind that emits light and has been featured on Samsung and LG products for years, to its iPhone for the first time on the new screen.
No physical home button
There are some conflicting reports on this. But it seems fairly certain that the iPhone 8 will come without a physical home button, opting instead to have an all glass display. Whether or not it features Touch ID is still up for debate.
