The iPhone 8 is already one of the most anticipated phones of the year and given how much revolutionary the smartphone has been made out to be by fan made concepts, leaks and rumors, it would be safe to say that Apple's future flagship device has even surpassed the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 in terms of hype. People have a pretty good idea about the Note 8 because they have already seen the Galaxy S8+, but no one has ever seen anything like the iPhone OLED from Apple, given that the rumors are even remotely on track of course. To add to those series of rumors, we have another one for you today and it's a very interesting one to say the least.


The borderless OLED display which will presumably make its debut on an iPhone for the first time ever, poses one great problem which had earlier plagued (and still continues to plague) the S8 and S8+; there is no place left on the front to incorporate the fingerprint scanner. As the necessary technology for in-screen fingerprint scanners are not ready for mass production yet, Samsung has reportedly decided to go with an old-fashioned fingerprint scanner right at the centre of the Note 8's back. Apple on the other hand, has allegedly, shifted the fingerprint scanner to the iPhone 8's Power button! While Sony had placed the FP scanner at the side of its smartphones before, Power button integration for the security measure would indeed be a first.

For a change, we are not talking about any rumors today but we are most definitely talking about a leak and trust me when I say that it's a big one. This one doesn't come from any external Chinese sources or reliable leaksters, but straight from mouth of the Horse itself.

 

While speaking to the media at the Annual Shareholder's Meeting, Robert Hwang spoke the following words, "Assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing." As Hwang is the CEO of the company (Wiston) which assembles the iPhones for Apple, this pretty much confirms two things; waterproofing and wireless charging is definitely coming to the iPhone 8.

 

This accidental leak by Hwang is the second one in recent history as Allen Horng, the CEO of Catcher Technology had let one slip about Apple shifting to a new type of glass chassis with the iPhone 8, back in 2016. Let's hope we get a few more before the actual phone is released a few months later.

We are all anticipating something brilliant from Apple this year as it will mark the iPhone's 10th anniversary. However, what we were not expecting was the fact that Apple might be unveiling the much awaited and mysterious smartphones on Monday, which is tomorrow! The prediction comes from J.P. Morgan of all sources, so this could indeed be legit. Now, it should be noted that what the analyst at the firm said was that Apple might be unveiling its latest and greatest smartphone at the WWDC next week. What this basically means is that the iPhone 8 could be revealed at any date in-between June 5th to June 9th, since the event is 5 day long.


Traditionally, the next iPhone should be launched in September and not in June but it is possible that Apple has sped up the entire process in light of the iPhone's anniversary. It should also be noted that delightful as these rumors/predictions are, chances of them being true are still slim. I guess we won't have to wait too long to find out any way as the event starts tomorrow.

Personally, I am more of an Android guy, but I won't judge you for loving an iPhone either. In spite of all the highly controversial decisions that they take, the truth is that Apple does make great smartphones and bake some remarkable features into them every year. Everybody is expecting Apple to do something truly new and amazing in 2017 since it is going to mark the tenth anniversary of the most hyped smartphone series of all time. A lot of rumors have been going around lately regarding OLED screens, hefty price tags and enhanced dual camera modules but none of them had yet presented a release date for the device until now. The famous leakster Benjamin Geskin, also known as @VenyaGeskin1 on Twitter is claiming that "Apple's iPhone 8 / 7s Keynote will be held on September 17. Sales September 25."



This exciting piece of news joins in with another news that we heard earlier today about the iPhone 8. As it turns out Apple may have done one already over the Galaxy S8 by embedding an under the screen fingerprint scanner right below the display; something that the S8 was supposed to bring to the table but could not because of failed deadlines.

In a recent digital Assistant showdown conducted in between Siri and Google Assistant the iPhone, it was proven beyond doubt that the newer AI powered voice assistant is indeed bad news for Siri. In the comparison done by CNBC, Google Assistant managed to win most rounds convincingly, displaying surprising accuracy in almost every aspect. Nevertheless, Siri did manage to tie and even win a few rounds, so props to the older assistant for that. Check out the full test here.


If you are wondering what this means for Siri now, well, we can tell you that it still can do a few things like waking up the iPhone or silencing an incoming call that the Assistant will never be able to do on an Apple device, but that's only because iOS won't allow it. To be honest, it is starting to look like the iOS needs a more advanced AI assistant or at least a more updated one.
