8 most delicious iPhone 8 features we can't wait to sink our teeth in

8 most delicious iPhone 8 features we can't wait to sink our teeth in
We're all excited about the iPhone 8. The whole world is excited. But why?

While there's no doubt Apple has something extremely special cooking up in the kitchen (otherwise why would it appoint a Cook for a CEO?), do we really know what's going to be so great about it? We mean, obviously Apple hasn't given us an iPhone that looks genuinely new and different from that breakthrough metal slate it unleashed back in 2014, and with the iPhone 8 rumored to finally shake things up dramatically, both media and consumers are gobbling up every new piece of render or leak as soon as it gets out the oven.

But, let's stop for a moment and think about what exactly it is that the iPhone 8 is expected to bring to the table when it launches later this year – explore all the juicy features in the gallery below, and please try not to drool over your smartphone's screen (or computer keyboard), that would be so gross!

Wireless charging? Lol is this suppose to be a feature we should be looking forward to? Until they bring the real thing, i couldnt be bothered about inductive charging tbh. I'd rather pa mentions things like oled, design, AR, 3d sensing, touchbar, a11 processor, true tone display, dual ff cameras, L shaped battery. Instead of this embarassing mix of old and new features clustered everywhere.

What happened to the under the screen FP scanner? I thought it was 150% confirmed?

You can confirm something with 150% certainty?

Yeah, the Apple Insider and Smartphone prophet titles are enough to show Bankz can! :)

The thing is Bankz said Samsung couldn't put the finger print scanner under the screen, but he claimed that Apple was going to instead. It's kind of funny, especially since Samsung makes the displays for Apple in the new iPhone 8 or pro. LG makes all other iPhone displays, including the Apple watch P-OLED displays. So Bankz has to eat a little crow. Apple-rulz is in the same boat. Both can never admit they are wrong.

You mean if only it wasn't all rumors. Apple must have promised something to IPA for this article.

The features and design of every phone is all rumors until its actually announced by the OEM and released. Apple didn't promise PA anything. Just like Samsung didn't promise them anything for the article about the note 8 and 8 features expected on it. Anything we've heard about the note 8 up to this point is nothing but rumors as well. You jump all over Apple fans for trolling samsung articles, yet your doing the same thing here, which is the pot calling the kettle black...or in other words hypocritical.

I like how the design is "lick-able" now that it's apple implementing it, but when others did, the decision wasn't favored. Also, no other company has had a good solution to Wireless charging before? is that why the image displayed with it shows a rendered iPhone on an old flat Galaxy charger? And they had dual cameras on the 7+, so it's not really a special new feature, just more widely available.

Exactly. They make it look like a dual camera is suppose to be a new feature.

But yet, iOS will still be the walled garden it has always been.

It's supposed to be liked that so that users can be kept secure. Otherwise everyone would be downloading malicious APKs and then blaming Apple because the iPhone slows down after a couple of weeks of use.

*iPhone slows down with couple of weeks use . Are you bluffing?

You need some English lessons.

Sure you can give me english lessons . By the way what was your point there so I can correct my reply .

49. AmashAziz

It seemed you are making fun of my statement bcoz I said iPhone slows down. Without reading the whole para and relaising that I meant it will slow down after downloading malicious APKs. Therefore I said you need english lessons so to know that you shouldn't conclude what one meant without fully reading their words. It's just what I interpreted though; could be wrong myself. So would like you to elaborate. And don't get offended with my comment no.43. Bcoz I wrote it just because I didn't want to be bothered enough to explain what I wanted to say. Nothing else.

HAHA no! Let's end this here. Doesn't need an email converstion and waste our times which could be spent on something more useful. Besides, I don't wanna share my email ID on a public forum.

I am brave enough to share my email id on phonearena . If you have said yes I would have already shared it .

It could easily be optional as developers option.
