‘iPhone 8’ Concepts Show Off Wireless Charging, Touch Bar Integration [VIDEO]


Rumors about the Apple iPhone 8 are starting to escalate as 2017 draws near. Most Apple fans expect the iPhone 8 to be the most innovative smartphone the company has ever produced, with expectations high since iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus retained the same form factor as its previous generation.

One concept commissioned by iDropnews shows off a bezel-free design and wireless charging, similar to what we have seen from Apple Watch, along with a rumoured curved OLED display and integrated Home button into the screen:

Apple’s next generation iPhone 8 is rumored to sport a bold new design and would feature an OLED display without a bezel.

Another speculated design includes the integration of a small Touch Bar, the very same technology used in Apple’s newest MacBook Pro models. Check out the video below by YouTube channel Apple designer (via

According to earlier media reports, alongside its usual 4.7- and 5.5-inch smartphone offerings, the company would also unveil a third model that would be priced at a higher side than iPhone 7 and would come with invisible home button, all-glass housing, and wireless charging.

2017 is actually a special year for Apple; it’s the tenth anniversary for the iPhone. Fans expect Apple to make this 10th anniversary a special year and even introduce upgrades to commemorate the success of the first generation iPhone.

    Please temper your expectations. These are all guesses and if we look back at the 4s to the 5 there weren’t many huge design changes. Also please not that historically Apple has not made a device to celebrate a milestone. If they gave you everything in one phone, how will they sell you on a new phone the following year? It’s all about the next sale. My guess is an iPhone 7s with, as usual, one main new selling point. Just because it’s ten years doesn’t mean there won’t be an eleventh.

    Also that video was terrible and I’m not sure why you gave it the time of day. Looks like something my nephew made up on recess.

    Haha, everything you said makes total sense. There will be changes, but people need to calm down with the hype train. It’s better going in not expecting much, then being blown away if anything.

    Like I say every year. People are disappointed not by the actual product, but by their hyped and unrealistic expectations.
