While the 7s and 7s Plus are direct successors to last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 is expected to be the star of the bunch.

Kuo notes that the iPhone 8 won't have a physical home button. Sales were down by 8% compared to 2015 and criticism ensued regarding iPhone's imminent downfall. The definition of more here means a bigger price tag and multiple reports suggesting the iPhone 8 will be a "premium" device.

Almost 130 MLAs, who were taken away in three buses after Wednesday's meeting continue, to remain under the "custody" of Sasikala. In a dramatic development, School Education Minister Ma Foi Pandiarajan today has indicated his support to Panneerselvan.

In June 2016, Apple iPhone sales hit 1-billion mark - a figure roughly equivalent to seventh of the world's population. Apple, along with other smart phone manufacturers, is working towards moving several functional components, essential to the modern Smartphone, beneath the screen. Apple Watch and Macbook Pro with Touch Bar use OLED panels and for the first time, they will be introduced in the iPhone 8 model. However, if you take out the functional area, the OLED display's actual size will amount to 5.15-inches. Considering that Apple has been launching the iPhone at this particular month and there aren't any strong hint that the company would move far from tradition, it's still sensible to expect a September iPhone dispatch. However, neither Broadcom nor Apple have gone on the record to confirm whether or not wireless charging will be part of the iPhone 8. Touch ID is Apple's fingerprint scanning technology used to authenticate logins and purchases in lieu of typing a passcode. Ming-Chi Kuo, who has reliable track record with past Apple leaks, suggests that Apple is opting for a stacked logic board layout. But that has not happened quite as planned as the premise surrounding iPhone 8 is as huge as ever right now with new speculations pertaining to the device rolling out every other hour. Hopefully, if rumours are to be believed, there will also be less-expensive iPhones that will be released along with the expensive 8. Apple will also release two more affordable iPhones, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, which will feature some minor improvements. (It's not clear to us, though, that security or ease of use are really what's holding people back from using Apple Pay). The latter specializes in micro-LED displays that could replace the bulky sensor components seen in handsets today. He mentioned that Apple can announce the iPhone 8 as early as June 5, 2017, at the WWDC 2017.

Price: Apple's iPhone are not known for being affordable, considering that, the most innovative iPhone model from Apple is bound to cost a bomb.
