10 iPhone 8 rumors that are sure bets

New drone footage of state-of-the-art Apple Park was released to the public on Tuesday

Having released Beta 10 a while back, the stage is set for the final release of Apple's latest and greatest firmware for mobile - iOS 11.

Judging by these leaks, it now looks like we can expect three new iPhones, at least one, new Apple Watch, a new 4K ready Apple TV and slightly redesigned AirPods. To prevent confusion, from this point forward we will refer to Apple's next flagship as the iPhone 8.

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, Apple is expected to announce a special premium version of the smartphone with a price tag around $1,000, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

Design: One of the most perceptible changes to be seen with the new iPhone X is its design.

It is widely anticipated that the new iPhone models will be officially launched in following with the company's recent tradition of unveiling products in September.

The 7S and 7S Plus are expected to ship with the same rapid and wireless charging as the iPhone 8, but other than that it's unlikely to be a major departure from the iPhone 7.

Let's catch up on what the iOS firmware leaks confirm.

As expected, Apple is probably going to add True Tone support to the iPhone 8 and replace the home button with a digital bar that sits at the bottom of the screen. According to a Wall Street Journal report, a glitch in the manufacturing process has delayed the iPhone 8 production by a full month. The most exciting new feature is the addition of augmented reality apps, made possible by Apple's new AR Kit.

To set up the Face ID, users will have to take selfies from different angles. It is going to be all glass on the front with nearly zero bezels all round; so much that even the iconic home button will be nowhere to be seen. In its place, Apple is moving to a whole screen experience with a dynamic area represented by a line at the bottom of each application. Whether you will actually need to pay extra for this service remains to be seen. Both 9to5Mac and MacRumors were sent the golden master (GM) version of iOS 11 by a source, revealing a ton of fresh details. The name it will use for this is Animoji. Notably, previous reports have suggested that the iPhone 8 will be able to detect and authenticate users even when lying on a flat surface.

These are called Animoji and will use facial tracking and your voice to create expressive animated messages.
