The Rokform offices are buzzing in anticipation of the new iPhones that are expected to drop in September!
We have been seeing rumors all over the place from various sources and have compiled a list of everything we have heard! Be sure to check back to this page to see updated rumors and news about our cases!
If Apple was to follow the naming patterns we have seen in the past the 2017 devices would be named the iPhone 7s, but with all of the improvements that are being made, they could skip the iPhone 7s. We have seen both reports that say iPhone 8 and iPhone X. Why iPhone X? This year is the tenth anniversary of the iPhone so X could represent the roman numeral X! iPhone X could definitely be a potential, especially because of the iPhone SE that was released last Spring. According to an employee working on the iPhone 8 in Israel the team inside of Apple is currently calling the device the iPhone 8. We completely agree with iJustine with her excitement about the potential iPhone X naming rumor!
Because the screen will take up the whole front of the screen, it is rumored that the phones will be approximately the same size as the current iPhones.
There are a variety of conflicting rumors on how many devices there will be, some say there will be three devices, with one of them being the "higher end" device. This middle device will have some features, full glass body, wireless charging, etc. that the other devices may not have.
Because of all the new features it is going to cost you a pretty penny to get your hands on this new iPhone... Rumors say it could be somewhere around $1,000!! You better start saving now!!
Rumor has it that the iPhone 8 could have an updated logic board and will most likely feature a bigger battery, giving the smaller phone a similar battery life as the current iPhone 7 Plus.
If you have used an iPhone 7 Plus you know how amazing the dual camera is, Ming-Chi Kuo, who often predicts Apple rumors correctly has suggested a vertical dual camera instead of a horizontal dual camera.
With artifical intelligence taking a bigger role in our lives, see Alexa, Google Home etc. It is thought that the new iPhone will also come with a new Siri. It is also rumored that Alexa will have a new buddy in the speaker space with a potential Siri enabled speaker.
If Apple sticks to tradition we will be seeing a new device sometime in September of 2017!
We are already working hard on a NEW iPhone 8 Case design and cannot wait to show you! We are anticipating launching our all new iPhone 8 Case(and some familiar favorites) as soon as we know more about the latest Apple device!
