iPhone 8 release date, features, and specs

What can we expect from the iPhone 8 rumours?

Specs & hardware

It's highly likely that the iPhone 8 will launch with iOS 11, but as iOS 10 has only been out a few months, its unclear what features a brand new OS would include.

Apple used a quad-core A10 processor in the iPhone 7 range and the company may stick with a quad-core A11 for its next phone. Samsung's activities will not go unnoticed however, as rumours suggest they are planning for an Exynos octa-core chip built using 10nm technology. If true, Apple is unlikely to let itself be out-gunned.

While the iPhone 7 was limited to just 2GB RAM, employees at supplier Foxconn recently confirmed the iPhone 8 will ship with 3GB of RAM. 

Apple may also be about to phase out the 32GB storage option for this generation, according to a recent report by TrendForce, in favour of 64GB and 256GB configurations.

Reports have also suggested the company is working on its own graphics chips for the iPhone 8, set to end its long-standing partnership with British chipmaker Imagination Technologies within the next two years.
