The iPhone 8 image stars in a McDonald’s promo, 'hamburger menu' makes sense now



Ok, now this is getting out of hand - not only hasn't the eventual OLED iPhone 8 been announced yet, but we haven't even seen a glimpse of its production version outside of concept image renders, dummies and admittedly elaborate prototypes

That, however, didn't preclude none other than the McDonald's brand to already start using the alleged shape and form of the "all-screen" iPhone 8 in promo materials. Based on rumors and leaked schematics, these have been created by graphics artists, and somehow McDonald's worked their own app in there to tout promos and discounts. Do they know something? Probably not, just using leaks that have been around for the past few weeks, but still it's interesting to see how they imagine their app looking on the iPhone 8 and its alleged "notch" at the top of the display. As one of the comments eloquently puts it: "The hamburger menu bar totally makes sense here." 

This crazy leak season has been exactly what Apple CEO Tim Cook referred to in the last quarterly results conference call when he commented that "greater than normal discussions" are the likely culprit behind the lull in sales of the 2016 iPhone crop. The argument is that people are simply waiting to grab the iPhone 8, or one of the other two that Apple will eventually reveal.

All these manufacturers just let their devices leaked for benefit...

Agree, I don't think this is even a real picture of the McDonald's promo on an iPhone 8, I think it was rendered. So, I don't even know if it is technically a leak.

The guy who post this got 13 followers, and that post been retweeted 5 times and commented 3 times... So, how did PA believe that this is legit news? or rather, how did PA even find that tweet in the first place?

I think PA did search for specific hashtag.

PA saw it on another news site. That's the only way they get their content.

Meh, they probably just designed the app off the rumored design making rounds tbh.

When big name company in any field leaked something related to another company/partner's upcoming product, that mean they have a clue of what that upcoming product will actually end up.

Think it's just a render because the cellular bars have changed in iOS 11 back to actual bars. This would be ugly AF if the UI ends up like this
