Apple is set for its unveiling of iPhone 8 alongside Apple Watch 3 and Apple 4K TV today. For now, we don’t know exact specifications, features, and functions that the iPhone 8 is made with but speculations, rumours, and leaks at hand suggested that the iPhone is likely to come in three models: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X Edition.
One rumour suggested that the iPhone is likely to cost around $1,000 (N375,000)* or more. Speculation from a reliable source also revealed that the new iPhone is likely to be packed with a wireless charging support and a breezeless display.
Another rumour specifications also reveal that the home button which also doubles as the fingerprint sensor may be ditched on the iPhone 8. Why?
