Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) rumored flagship 2017 smartphone is expected to feature exciting new technology, not the same old same old that the Cupertino-based company has been feeding fan boys for years.
It's been widely reported that Apple plans to move away from liquid crystal displays (LCDs) to displays implementing organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).
However, next year Apple has chose to place the Home button right under the iPhone 8's display. Some had their phones replaced by Apple while others weren't so lucky.
As carriers and regulators urge customers to come return their Samsung devices while simultaneously halting sales of affected models, there's a good chance that a lot of those users will defect to iOS. That just-announced phone from China integrates an ultrasonic fingerprint under its glass.
Right now, expect Apple to stick to its usual release schedule: a September press event, followed by the release of the phone a week or so later.
The Home button has been a part of the iPhone's anatomy since the smartphone launched in 2007 and it's unthinkable to abandon it altogether.
Three law firms in the United States have signed up to a growing class action lawsuit against Apple, after stories emerged of its iPhone 6 Plus's touchscreen becoming unresponsive.
The company is certainly pulling out all the stops to create the best iPhone ever, on the tenth anniversary of its iPhones. It might also be that Apple would reduce its top bezel of the handset by making use of an edge to edge display. This space is required to contain various components which include the front camera, speakers, the main home button and many other sensors. OLED displays also improve battery life because they're less of a drain on the charge. Shortly after the flaw was initially reported on, a trio of iPhone users filed a class action lawsuit against Apple, claiming that Apple refuses to fix devices affected by Touch Disease for free. Rather than rely on a metal case, the next iPhone could come in an all-glass enclosure. A metal plate added at the time of the phone's production would have prevented all of the problems from happening. Their suit arises, the document states, from "Apple's concealment of a material manufacturing defect that ultimately causes iPhone touchscreens to become unresponsive and fail for their essential goal as smartphones".
