Home button concept will be ditched on the OLED iPhone aka iPhone X aka iPhone Edition to incorporate a bezel-less or full screen experience. Also, they already know it's going to cost a lot, probably past a thousand dollars, if rumors are correct. But what about older iPhone models that have Touch ID? Perhaps. New Face ID technology? That was said to have been abandoned, and the iPhone 8 will be dropping Touch ID in favor of the Face ID facial recognition system.

We are but days away from the event of the Apple calendar year when the company pulls the curtain up on new iPhone models. With Tim Cook promising to double down on product secrecy, the biggest iPhone leaks we've seen in recent months haven't come from anonymous sources within the supply chain, but from Apple itself. While it's still unclear, Portrait Lighting will reportedly add lighting enhancements to the iPhone's Portrait mode effect that creates DSLR-like depth-of-field photographs.

True Tone Display will be found on the iPhone X. Similar to the feature on the iPad Pro, this will allow the screen on your iPhone X to have a white display that matches the environment that the device is being used in.

RBC Capital Markets said that a recent survey of iPhone 8 users in the USA indicated "sizable pent-up demand and excitement around the upcoming iPhone launch" with wireless charging generating the most interest.

In addition to the portrait, the iPhone 8 camera will also have new video recording resolution and capture speeds.

The leak also suggests Apple will put a True Tone Display in the OLED iPhone X. True Tone was introduced with the 25cm iPad past year and adjusts the white balance of the display automatically, improving the readability of text by making the display warmer or cooler based on the lighting. But, according to Barclays analysts, Apple could offset that price tag by bundling the device with included Apple Music and iCloud subscriptions. You will see connected things and notifications in a whole new iOS 11.

Apple has taken to spotlighting the growing stream of revenue from selling content and services to the hundreds of millions of people using its devices. Holding the button launches Siri.

The 7S and 7S Plus are expected to ship with the same rapid and wireless charging as the iPhone 8, but other than that it's unlikely to be a major departure from the iPhone 7. Nonetheless they look great on an a regular iPhone display as well. Expect due coverage as Tech Times learns more.
