We are still a few months away from the WWDC and what could be further confirmation of iPhone 8 features, but already the rumor mill is spinning wild. Apple is schedule to release their iPhone 5S on Friday.

The manufacturing will take place in Bengaluru suburb - Peenya, by a Taiwanese original design manufacturer - Wistron, with whom Apple has a contract.

It is expected to also establish brand new facilities for component manufacturing at a second location later. Is Apple planning to ditch volume rocker buttons? Apple's iPhone feature and design plans are still in flux and can change, they added. The curves are similar in shape to those on the front of the iPhone 7.

While Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 (or iPhone Edition) is expected to boast many advanced features, including wireless charging, a massive OLED display, IP68 dust- and water-proof certification and more, many of these advancements won't necessarily be new to the smartphone space; but rather, will merely be new to Apple.

Apple Inc is likely to pay graphics chip designer Imagination Technologies just one third of its current royalty rate as the smartphone giant wind downs their supply deal over the next two years, UBS estimated on Wednesday. A Samsung rep has already said that it was a deliberate design decision to try and free up more internal room for a battery, but the justification doesn't really matter: it still leads to a bad user experience.

And that's WITHOUT factoring in sales of older iPhone models like the iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 6s series. "The Samsung Galaxy S8 raises the bar for Apple to hit a home run".

According to them, Apple is testing new screen for that model which is said to cover the front of the device entirely and also the home button will be integrated into the screen itself.

Apple has been testing using faster processors based on a smaller 10-nanometer production process for all three new models, a person familiar with Apple's chip plans said.
