The iPhone 8's name is Apple's best-kept secret

Tim Cook

Some analysts have long claimed that Apple will not have sufficient iPhone 8 models until November at the earliest. Our researchers have predicted the features of the latest iPhone and we are pretty sure that our phone lives up to those features.

Apple has confirmed that it would be holding a launch event on september 12.

While it was obvious that the new iPhone will be called iPhone 8 after the iPhone 7 models have been launched, now there are some doubts.

Android users can also join the Apple's live-streaming service for the upcoming iPhone event by downloading and installing the VLC app from Google Play Store. The note says that the new iPhone's display will include an OLED panel, an OLED touch panel and a 3D Touch model.

A facial-recognition sensor, earpiece and front-facing camera sit on a notch that occupies the screen's top. Apple tried to embed the Touch ID function, or fingerprint scanner, in the new display, which proved hard, the people familiar with the process said. The "ears" on either side of the notch will display the icons for WiFi, cellular strength, battery, time, and Bluetooth. The home button reportedly will be replaced with a virtual button.

Apple is likely to sell the current iPhone 7 in two data storage configurations - 64 and 256 gigabytes - and starting at $549, with the iPhone 7 Plus in the same storage sizes for $669.

It will certainly not be cheap.

The survey from investment analysts Piper Jaffray found that just 16% of those surveyed said they planned to upgrade to the new device.

Here's what we know - the 64 GB phone is the cheapest on the list, priced at $999, while the 256 GB one is a whopping $1,099.

The iPhone Upgrade Program with the new phone might increase by a few more dollars and the iPhone 8 (7S) will definitely be a popular choice with top U.S. carriers.

The tech giant has an iPhone Upgrade Program that allows customers to get a new iPhone when it comes out for just a little over $30 per month. Verizon, for example, now charges $27.08 a month for 24 months with a zero down payment to get an iPhone 7. Unfortunately, the attempt proved more hard than Apple initially thought, so the idea was eventually abandoned due to the approaching deadlines.
