IPhone 8: gesture controls fully replace the home button, new report claims

Users will use gestures at the bottom of the iPhone 8 display to do things like close apps, navigate back to the home screen, and open multitasking.

At the event, it's also been reported that we'll see the introduction of a successor to the 4th generation Apple TV one which will include support for 4K and HDR image output.

Rene Ritchie, analyst with iMore, recently penned an article in which he explained why the iPhone now doesn't support the Apple Pencil although "Apple has no doubt tested Pencil technology on iPhone".

Here's everything you need to know about the iPhone 8 release.

So many questions! What happens to Control Center, which has become one of the most important parts of the iPhone UI since its introduction in iOS 7?

In my view, this is reasonable not only based on Broadcom's commentary but also on how Apple has differentiated the iPhone Plus model from the standard-sized model; that differentiation has always been in areas like screen size/sharpness and camera capabilities.

Its market capitalisation now stands at about US$841bn and some analysts expect it will reach US$1trn following the release of the iPhone 8. IDC sees iPhone shipments rising 9.1% in 2018 after the iPhone 8, 7S and 7S Plus models are released. No button means no more TouchID, but the company's using facial recognition technology to replace the identity verification and purchasing tool - more on that below.

Apple has apparently redesigned the iPhone to feature an edge-to-edge display that's rumoured to cover the entire front of the phone, with a unique glass and metal finish. MA purchased a new stake in Apple during the fourth quarter worth approximately $75,597,000.

If true this would be the biggest change in iPhone design since the launch of the device in 2007. Rumors claim that the company will be moving the fingerprint sensor at the back of the device, just like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

"For me, it's the imminent launch of the iPhone 8, due for September 12".

It will also come with a faster processor and a clearer, brighter screen, according to the report.

There's a lot that's changing in the iPhone 8. Considerably, it can only be used by charging pads approved by Apple.

Traditionally, Apple's 5.5-inch iPhones were far superior in battery life tests, but that's a direct result of the size difference between a regular iPhone and its Plus version.
