Some HUGE information regarding the iPhone 8 has recently been leaked to the internet, and it looks like the iPhone 8 might be the first in the next generation of smart phones- phones that are levels above the ones currently on the market.
Keep in mind- there is no guarantee that all of these features will be part of the final product, and these are all rumors.
According to the leak, the iPhone 8 will have a plethora of new, futuristic features. On top of being waterproof and wireless charging (features that are quickly becoming industry standard), there is talk of the phone having a 3D camera (dual cameras on the back suggest this), having a curved screen, and getting rid of the home button. If the home button were removed, it would give the phone a bigger screen, but it might sacrifice finger-scanner performance. The fingerprint reader feature, which has been integrated into the home button for the past 3 generations of iPhone, would have to be moved under the screen.
In addition, there are rumors going around saying that the 8 could use facial recognition as a potential choice for unlocking the iPhone along with fingerprint and password. There is also talk of Apple releasing the next step in wearable tech- smart glasses. They would work similarly to Google Glass but be integrated with your other Apple devices. The glasses might also support augmented reality.
