IPhone 8 to let users silence notifications with a glance

His research note - which was shared with Apple Insider - partially contradicted Foxconn Vice President Luo Zhongsheng, who posted - and then quickly deleted - on Weibo claiming Apple has run into supply chain issues for the much-anticipated phone and is facing a 40 percent defect rate for its new OLED screen.

Several key details of the iPhone 8 have been leaked through a developer code ever since Apple released firmware for the HomePod speaker, a device not due to launch until December. As part of the celebration, Apple is tipped to be plotting a major redesign of the iPhone, ushering in a new age of bezel-free Apple smartphones.

The iPhone 8 will offer buyers and edge-to-edge screen, but that's not the entire story.

However, what we know about the iPhone 8 suggests we're in for a radically different handset this time around.

iOS developer Guilherme Rambo has discovered a new code hidden inside the HomePod firmware, which seems to suggest that the iPhone will automatically mute notifications when you are looking at the display.

How Manchester United snubbed chance to sign Isco
United boss Jose Mourinho had been hoping to sign the Spain global this summer but Isco is happy to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu. It could have been so different though.

"The iPhone's rear design has not yet been finalized", a South Korean supplier of components for the new device said, according to The Korea Herald.

The images appear to show a wireless charging coil, giving fuel to the rumors of wireless charging.

We're also expecting both versions of the iPhone 8 to have the dual-lens array that Apple first debuted on the iPhone 7 Plus. It is even larger than the iPhone 7 Plus' 5.5-inch display.

This design looks identical to the dummy units we've been seeing leak out all over the web, so we're fairly confident this is all legitimate.

The home screen is familiar to the one all iOS devices use now, with apps stacked at the top and a dock at the bottom.
