Reports suggest the new iPhone won’t be here until much later in the year:
Apple’s next iPhone isn’t supposed to arrive until much later in 2017, but that hasn’t stopped legions of fans from fervently speculating about it. Things may be a little different this year, as it’s the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Rumors suggest we may see three models — the iPhone 7S, the 7S Plus, and the iPhone X (iPhone 8). The latter is expected to be an expensive, technical showcase phone released as a celebratory model.
If you want to learn more about the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, head over here. A lot of this information is up in the air, but what we’re hearing about it is keeping us interested. Very interested. Here’s what we’ve learned so far about the iPhone X — also referred to as the iPhone 8.
The images are close to previous rumors, but in a report from iDropNews citing a Foxconn employee, Apple is supposedly working on two different versions of the iPhone X concurrently, but will ultimately choose just one for release. It’s not certain whether the one we’re seeing in these leaks will go on to be released.
The primary difference between the two models appears to be the placement of Touch ID. The company’s more forward-looking proposal features a fingerprint sensor underneath the display, while a more conservative plan places it at the back, similar to many Android phones.
