According to an Apple analyst, we could meet the new iPhone, i.e. iPhone 8 later than we expected. The reason behind the delay is the late delivery of the materials for its production.
Till now, we do not know much about iPhone 8, that is expected to offer many new features such as edge-to-edge display, 10nm processor, display-embedded fingerprint scanner, facial recognition etc. Actually, this is more than an expectation. Apple has better do this considering the high end price tag around $1,000 or more .
On the other hand, there is pair of iPhones to be released along with iPhone 8: upgraded iPhone 7 and 7s Plus. So nowadays, Apple must have busy days.
Apple was planning to include Touch ID in these new models; however there happened problems during the production process for the feature. So, now Apple might offer a fingerprint sensor or facial recognition to enhance the security feature. We will see what will happen!
The company recently invested $200 million in display glassmaker Corning for a special curved version of the Gorilla glass for the iPhone 8. Also, there will be iPhone 7 Plus style rear dual camera setup, but it could be placed vertically instead of horizontally.
iPhone is a key product for Apple’s success in the market. That’s why the brand has right to be sure what it is doing. As a love brand, it has to kept this position in a market full of rivals. But, news is good for Apple according to AlphaWise, a data analyst firm, announcing 92 per cent of iPhone users are planning to upgrade their devices in the next 12 months. This is a lot more than other brands such as LG, Motorola, Nokia.
Also, there is a decline in the sales of iPhone 7 these days, which is a sign of expectation for the new version and brand new device.
