    iPhone 8 Leak Reveals Apple's Expensive Secrets

    2017 is the year the iPhone gets a major upgrade. We already know about its radical redesign, but now there are further details on what could be its most significant new feature - and the additional cost it brings…

    The source is none other than KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo (famously dubbed “the best Apple AAPL -0.14% analyst on the planet”). In a new report obtained by 9to5Mac, Kuo says Apple will finally introduce wireless charging across its upcoming iPhone ranges. This will double up with fast wired charging, which I exclusively revealed last month.

    Furthermore Kuo reiterated that there will be three new iPhones in 2017: two incremental ‘iPhone 7S’ upgrades and an all new OLED iPhone 8 / iPhone X introduced to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone.

    According to leak after leak, the 2017 iPhone will have a radical new design, get significantly larger and more expensive but I can also exclusively reveal two essential new additions the range has been crying out for for years…

    Get Ready For Fast Charging..
    Inside all three new 2017 iPhones (Dickson reiterates previous sources that there will be three distinct new models) will be a new ‘Tristar 3, Hydra’ chip which manages the charging port.

    “In normal people words… [it] will include fast charging,” he explained. But before you celebrate there are a couple of key unknowns here.

    Firstly whether the fast charging will be compatible with any current fast charging standards. Since this isn’t by Qualcomm it won’t be “Quick Charge” but there is a chance it could be the fast charging built into USB 3.1 - a standard Apple AAPL +0.25% is very keen on across the MacBook range - though I highly doubt we’ll see a switch from Lightning due to its lucrative proprietary licensing fees.

    Secondly just because the port can handle fast charging doesn’t mean Apple wants to implement it. After all current iPhones can charge more quickly using an iPad charger (try it out) but Apple never supplies this more powerful charger in the box despite the high price tag. Clearly, for whatever reason, Apple wants it to remain off the radar for mainstream customers.

    And lastly there’s no mention of wireless charging, but I remain hopeful given the change of chassis material.


    Tap to Wake Is An ‘iPhone 8’ Exclusive..
    Just because three new iPhone models are expected in 2017, doesn’t mean there will be parity between them.

    Dickson explains that while Apple is finally catching up to Android rivals by adding Tap To Wake, it will only feature on the so-called ‘iPhone 8’ which will feature a brand new design rather than the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus which will mimic Apple designs since the iPhone 6 and launch alongside it.

    No headphone jack either which is disappointing but can't say I expected anything else.

    You wonder how different you can make a bezel-less phone? the design will all be in the rear.

    Yup, definitely looks like a phone.

    fingerprint and home button will likely be on the back, rather than in the display. Look at the leaked Samsung Galaxy S8 specs for an idea, Samsung are likely well aware of what Apple has planned and try to beat them to the punch.

    Will still be plagued with an array of problems every time you update iOS no doubt .

    looks as good as a Xiaomi, almost.

    Apparently rumours to also have an iris scanner

    The iPhone 7 is already a $1000 phone - depending on what internal storage you get

    So you are not an Apple fan but yet you have come specially to a tread clearly marked as "The iPhone 8 thread" to make your silly comment.

    I think you need to get a life

    ive just farted in anticipation of the new iphone release

    Rumour is the screen will be as big as an iPhone Plus, but the handset will be the size of a standard iPhone. This is huge if true. I hope they're somewhat sensible on the price though.
