iPhone 8 Latest News & Updates: iPhone 8 Leaks May Just Reveal Phone’s Feature

iPhone is initially designed to revolutionize the smartphone industry with its all-glass OLED display and its forged steel chassis. But Apple is also addressing a major issue with the iPhone 7.
According to Korean Herald, the 2017 iPhones are expected to have IP68 water and dust resistance ratings. It means that these phone can survive full submersion of up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes. The recent upgrade is considered as a step up from iPhone models that have the IP67 rating which can survive for at least one meter of water. Aside from having an IP68 upgrade, the headphone jack was freed up to give way for a larger battery.
Now, the iPhone 8 is also rumored to have scratch-proof glass panels that are reinforced both the front and the back, along with a stainless steel bezel to help improve its robustness and even reduce the costs as well as the iPhone‘s manufacturing time.
Technically, there isn’t much difference with the previous iPhone model released last year. In fact, the water and dust resistance feature are standard on most smartphone models nowadays. Apple is also anticipated to introduce the touch bar among the other specs that might be included with the iPhone 8. The Touch Bar function acts as a second screen which shows the icons, shortcuts, and also the contextual message. This feature is already included with the MacBook Pro that was released a year ago.
Apple is reported to start its manufacturing and production this March 2017 and may begin shipping its products in late autumn next year. Meanwhile, rumors have it that Samsung will be producing around 60 to 70 million panels for Apple in 2017.
