Apple Inc. (AAPL) Finally Embraces Instagram (Sort Of)

Glass back design corroborated by latest iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and iPhone 8 dummy units

Apple will be celebrating the tenth-anniversary of iPhone with the launch of the iPhone 8 in the next month. However, and not particularly surprising - given that it should be quite hard to manufacture - Kuo reportedly says Apple won't ship the premium OLED iPhone in very large numbers during the third quarter of the year.

By parsing the leaked code, he's discovered evidence of a home button on the iPhone 8 that resizes within a "periphery area", possibly located towards the bottom of the display. Our only other thought on this subject is that the iPhone 8 is rumoured to have wireless charging, and perhaps this circular area houses some kind of tech that will help it charge quickly and efficiently in contact with a charging plate? Both reports foresee supply shortfalls of the iPhone 8, with Kuo estimating the company will produce 2-4 million units in this quarter.

It has often been rumored that the iPhone 8 will ship with a front-facing 3D sensor to replace the Touch ID button, which would bring facial recognition to Apple's next flagship handset.

According to a note by respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8 will all be capable of charging without wires. Therefore, the company hasn't been providing too many details regarding its heavily-speculated iPhone 8 smartphone. Recall, over the past few months we've seen quite a number of reports claiming that Apple's next-gen iPhone wouldn't hit store shelves until October at the earliest, or mid-November at the latest. But now a new video has emerged that gives fans a sneak peak of what could be the iPhone 7s Plus.

The iPhone 8 will reportedly pack an iPhone 7 Plus-size OLED display into a body that's only slightly larger than the iPhone 7.

Apple is expected to announce new iPhones at its yearly September event.

Kuo also maintains that the iPhone 8 will be available in three colors: black, silver, and gold. That, in turn, would suggest that Apple isn't going to ditch its Touch ID fingerprint scanning system for the new iPhone, as some have speculated, but rather that facial and fingerprint recognition can be combined for even greater security.

"The fact that Samsung's manufacturing lines are not running at full capacity at the moment hints at the delay of the OLED iPhone launch", said another source declining to be named.

Apple declined to comment.
