Rumors have indicated as many as 3 iPhone may be introduced in the fall, perhaps the more traditionally-styled iPhone 7S and 7S Plus we would be due for this year, and then also this fancy new one.

After seeing what the Apple iPhone 8 will look like once launched, reports emerged that the smartphone won't be delayed.

This year marks the 10th anniversary since Apple first launched the original iPhone back in 2007.

As everyone probably already knows, one of the most important things that iPhone 8 is going to feature is an enlarged OLED display.

Developer Guilherme Rambo found an icon representing the iPhone 8 referring to the device with the code name "D22" along with details about the bezel-less design.

Among all the major disclosures, made by the pictures, the wireless charging coil has taken the market by storm and gave fuel to the long-standing rumors about iPhone 8 featuring wireless charging. "I estimate that iPhone 8 will not be cheap".

The release date of IPhone 8 is coming.

However, Apple's subsequent product cycles - the iPhone 6s-series and iPhone 7-series cycles, - failed to drive the kind of upgrade activity that the iPhone 6-series did.

Apple's supply chain is expected to produce between two million and four million units this quarter. The analyst does mention that iPhone 8 quantities and styles will be limited at launch. There have also been reports that it will be embedded on the rear, in the power button, or that it will do away with it completely, instead opting for an advanced 3D facial recognition camera as a replacement.

The latest Kuo report comes after another one which indicated the Touch ID under the display is not happening on the iPhone 8. The facial recognition technology will be able to work if the phone is lying flat on a table and using infrared sensors would still be able to identify users in low-light or dark environments. Many had even suggested that Apple might announce the smartphone in September, but start shipping it only towards the end of the year.

Previously, Kuo has forecast "worst case scenario" delays for the iPhone 8, and that it would with "fewer options for casing colours", although it sounds like those scenarios are increasingly unlikely.
