With the latest release of the Apple's iPhone 7 just this September, people are now looking forward to what iPhone 8 has to offer. Here are some rumors and updates on the iPhone 8. 

Though you can practically see long lines of people waiting to get the brand new iPhone 7, this is not enough to stop wondering about 2017 iPhone. After all, 2017 is the iPhone's 10th birthday. With this one-decade milestone, you can certainly expect that Apple has something special geared up for its anniversary edition.

For the potentially new iPhone 8, gadget lovers should expect to have a curved screen, hidden TouchID sensor and no home button, according to Forbes. But they will likely take touch sensors to a whole new level as some people are speculating that Tim Cook could be planning to add a "Rear Touch Sensor" to next year's iPhone model. Just like the 3D Touch sensor, this will give iPhone users the next level of interaction while still staying true to the phone's core functionality.

Apple has something major planned for iPhone this 2017. The reason why some people are looking forward to next year's release is that this is the first time in three years, people are going to see a new design. One of its major redesigns is it will feature a glass body and edge to edge flexible OLED display with a built-in Touch ID sensor and front-facing camera, according to Mac Rumors. But it is still not clear if the screen will increase to fit the 5.5-inch or larger display or it may decrease the size to fit the display.

For several years now, Apple's Chief Design Officer Jony Ive has wanted to introduce an iPhone that looks like a single sheet of glass. With this new glass design, it means that it is also necessary to do away with the conventional wire charging and opt for wireless charging instead.

With this 10-nanometer A11 chip, users can expect smoother and faster mobile experience than ever. Other expected iPhone 8 features would be advanced biometric features like facial recognition or iris scanning. The new iPhone 8 may be released in fall of 2017 along with the new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
