IPhone 8 Gestures Will Replace The Home Button

  • The end of the small screen

But Apple is looking to replace it with gesture controls, adding a "thin software bar" to the bottom of the screen where the home button is usually placed.

Alongside this, the home screen's dock is expected to use the same design previewed on the iPad in iOS 11 at the company's Worldwide Developers' Conference in June. The power button on the right side is physically longer to make it easier to press. Apple is said to be testing multiple solutions, including one that is entirely gesture-based, meaning the user would return to the home screen by swiping with a finger in a specific way. Previous rumors have also pinned this as the date when the iPhone 8 will be officially revealed to the world. Moving that, or creating an extra step to get to it, would be a big change.

It sounds like Apple is also introducing a face-scanning system that would recognize a user quickly and efficiently.

As always, these leaked iPhone parts are not confirmed at this time. And there's a potential safety issue here as well. That means that PearlID can be used to unlock the iPhone 8, authorize Apple Pay purchases, and access secure apps.

Samsung - Apple's closest rival - launched its flagship Galaxy S8 this summer with the slogan, "Unbox your phone" - referring to the "box" at the edges of the screen.

The iPhone 8 will reportedly include wireless inductive charging, though it's unclear whether the phone will work with current wireless chargers on the market. The Apple Watch supports wireless charging through the consortium's Qi charging standard, but is incompatible with other existing wireless chargers.

What's more, for those who fear the pricey phone might not sell well, Apple has an answer for that.

The reason why Apple is able to price iPhone 8 at $999 without scaring customers away is because iPhone 8 will sport a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display. Given that more than 50% of the company's revenues are generated by the iPhone, it's disturbing news, especially for shareholders.

On the screen front, Apple has indeed decided on an OLED display, according to Gurman, which would enable richer colors and deeper blacks.

As the iPhone 8 is ultimately only the size of the 7, which a battery almost the size of the Plus (which ran longer than 24 hours), it will run all day (longer) long no matter what you're trying to do with it.
