Apple Hits Record High As It Ramps Up iPhone 8, HomePod Lines

Sources also indicate that the screen is taller than the iPhone 7 Plus screen, meaning it could show more of a web page, or additional text messages; however the new screen will still only show six vertical rows of apps, plus the dock. Although, The New York Times also mentioned that there will be a standard and a premium iPhone 8 model and the standard one will be cheaper.

The new iPhone will have a bigger OLED screen for edge-to-edge display along with facial-recognition technology built-in, that can possibly do away with the Touch ID fingerprint.

It may also be a bit disingenuous to think Apple expects its loyal users to drop a grand on day one, considering all the ways you can get a phone without paying full price. However, the report states very carefully that only the new iPhone's high-end version would no longer have the home button, which goes along with other reports that have leaked on and off the last couple of months.

Apple is expected to use 3-D mapping tech in the iPhone 8 for authentication purposes, allowing users to unlock their phone or make Apple Pay payments by looking at the phone so it can scan their visage.

Tottenham sign Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth on long-term contract
Tottenham have completed the signing of young Estudiantes defender Juan Foyth , the club confirmed on Wednesday. The contract runs until 2022, with the fee for the youngster believed to be around nine million pounds.

Apple has finally set a date for the announcement of the next series of iPhone. The iPhone 8 will, however, be the main event. In June we posted a report titled "Apple Working on a Future Hand Gesturing Interface to Control Gaming, Apple TV and Home Appliances". While Munster didn't say for certain that it will create a supercycle, he did say it will be as close as Apple can get to a supercycle. The video appeared on Softpedia and shows an iPhone 8 lookalike running a possible custom ROM of iOS 11. The iOS charging procedure would be able to check whether the pad providing the inductive power is licensed by Apple else the iPhone would refuse the incoming charge.

Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Mehdi Hosseini said his checks with Apple's supply chain partners in South Korea and Taiwan indicate that Apple is increasing its planned production of the iPhone 8 during the first quarter of 2018. For starters, the smartphone will feature an OLED display, a later first for the lineup.

Its market capitalisation now stands at about US$841bn and some analysts expect it will reach US$1trn following the release of the iPhone 8.

Either way, if you're planning to upgrade your phone, you should probably wait a few weeks while they iron out the manufacturing kinks in the iPhone 8, and to avoid getting caught up in the initial scrum of buyers clamouring for new phones.
