Apple iPhone 8 Is Set To Disappoint

Conventional wisdom indicates that Apple will be launching the iPhone 8 later this year, which marks the 10th anniversary of the iconic smartphone, and that the new model will likely feature some form of wireless charging technology. So certainly not every Apple patent turns into a commercial product or feature, but at least iPhone rumors that stem from patent filings feel as though they have some legitimate basis. The iterative upgrades would pack 2GB and 3GB RAM, respectively. That's often typical for Apple, however, just as we saw with NFC and Apple Pay. However, for avid iPhone users, space has always been an issue thanks to features such as Live photos, 4K recording, and yes the apps. In fact, there are already a lot of speculations on what its features and design will be. Also, the iCloud storage is a bit more expensive compared to other cloud storage services.

The 3D system will work by sending the IR signals towards the objects and capturing the reflected signals with an 1.4 MP IR sensor.

Apple fans are expecting an increase in base storage and probably wireless charging. "Thus, the next high-end iPhone is expected to have the same 2.5D glass for display cover as the current models", TrendForce says. The company is looking into the flexible OLED display to make a curved screen. But this is the top-end model of iPhone 8 we're talking about here. The iPhone 8 is expected to feature edge-to-edge OLED display with glass back. Analysts have been expecting Apple to make the switch to OLED displays for some time, as numerous company's competitors in the smartphone market have already done so. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), the upcoming smartphone is also going to get an upgraded front-facing camera.

Justin Bieber Can Laugh At Himself & His Piss-Filled Pants!
A few days ago, a picture of Justin Bieber made its way onto the internet and at first glance it looked rather *revealing*. This is a remarkable tweet for a lot of reasons, the least of which is what exactly "made ya laugh nice" means.

MacRumors also pounced on the Kuo comments about a "revolutionary" new front-facing camera system that boasts infrared transmitting and receiving modules created to pinpoint objects in front of the phone.

Over the past few months, we've seen a number of contradictory reports regarding Apple's plans in the wireless charging space, altogether not surprising given that Apple may now be testing any different number of implementations. The iPhone 8 will charge wirelessly as long as you are within 15 feet of the transmitter.

Further according to a report in Barren's Tech Radar, Apple is said to start the production of its upcoming flagship smartphone earlier than expected. The flip side is that facial recognition requires a more deliberate unlocking procedure of holding the phone up to your face which can be inconvenient (especially when walking) and may make users more self-conscious than fingerprint unlocking.
