Reports for the highly anticipated iPhone 8 have been all over the map. The good news is that the closer we get to the launch, the more sure we get of what the iPhone 8 may feature. For the ten year anniversary of the iPhone the most consistent reports suggest a radical design change.
The latest reports suggest that Touch ID will be embedded directly underneath the front of the display. The reason being is because Apple is expected to debut a near bezel-less display. The report, which comes from iDropNews, shows off the “most realistic” renders according to their sources.
We have known for awhile that Apple will follow the trend set by LG and Samsung with the bezel-less display, but they have taken it to the next level. The latest reports have the display covering the entire front of the device, aside from the ear piece and front facing camera. It was previously rumored that the front facing camera would be under the display, but that is not the case anymore.
Lastly, one of the most interesting features is that Touch ID will indeed be embedded under the display. Rumors have been bouncing back and forth between under the display or back of the device, but it is leaning towards the former now. With Apple ditching the physical home button, they likely want to keep it in the same location.
