iPhone 8 wish list: Everything we know so far

2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has something exciting planned to celebrate the occasion.

We're more than a year away from the launch of the iPhone 8, but because of Apple's ambitious plans for the device, there is already an abundance of rumours hinting at the impressive features coming in the 2017 iPhone.

Apple is rumored to be testing more than 10 prototype models, so it's not exactly clear what we're going to see, and because there are so many test devices in play, rumors are also conflicting and murky at this time.

Rumours suggest it's going to be a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed.

Instead, Touch ID and the camera may be built directly into the display, meaning there will be no home button. With an edge-to-edge design, the display would take up the entire front of the iPhone, but it isn't clear if the display will grow to fit the iPhone or the iPhone will be shrunken down to fit the display (rumours suggest Apple will use a 5.5 inch display).

The display itself is said to be flexible OLED rather than an LCD, allowing Apple to introduce a thinner device that consumes less power and offers a better display with higher contrast ratio and more true to life colors.

It may also feature edges that are somewhat curved on both sides, but rumors are unclear. As for the body, rumors suggest Apple is finally going to move away from the aluminum used in the iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6s, and SE, instead re-adopting a glass body that's similar to the body that was used in the iPhone 4.

At least one iPhone model coming in 2017 will use a glass body, according to Apple supplier Catcher Technology, and according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the glass will be built around an aluminum or stainless steel frame.
