iPhone 8 release date, features, and specs

What can we expect from the iPhone 8 rumours?

Battery

Apple may finally add support for wireless charging with the iPhone 8, following news that Foxconn is researching the technology for Apple devices.

Employees at Foxconn recently confirmed that the iPhone 8 would keep the Lightning connector rather than the reported USB C, as well as feature wireless charging.

'Ultimate Accessory Connector' (UAC)

A new connector type is rumoured to be making its way to iPhone 8 accessories. The UAC, which will feature on all accessories and devices made through Apple's 'Made-for-iPhone' programme, and promises to be an eight-pin connection that is smaller and thinner than USB-C and Lightning.

Colours

A Chinese supplier recently revealed that the new range of iPhones will feature the same colours as the current models, including Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold, according to a report by Macotakara. Although simply an uncorroborated report at this stage, the typically reliable source also pointed to a replacement to the current Space Grey option, potentially with a Deep Blue, Space Black, or a Deep Red.
