Monday Apple Rumors: iPhone 8 Event May Take Place on September 12

The same gesture can also be used to launch multitasking when using an app.

So many questions! What happens to Control Center, which has become one of the most important parts of the iPhone UI since its introduction in iOS 7? Since Apple has eliminated the home button, according to Gurman, the company has created a new software-based home bar that will use new multitasking gestures to access different parts of the device.

If the release date news isn't enough to get you excited about Apple's newest handset, information about the phone's price has also been supposedly leaked. Samsung pretends this is no big deal, but this gimmick creates a false sense of security that many consumers won't know is about as secure as "swipe to unlock".

As has been reported before, the images viewed by Bloomberg show that the iPhone 8 will have thin bezels and a larger screen than the iPhone 7. That means having a way to slide the display halfway down-currently achieved by double-tapping the home button-is more important than ever. Then the app gets sucked back into its icon.

The latest and most interesting among them is an iPhone 8 clone that has been popped up in an 8 second video clip. The overall footprint is closer to the iPhone 7 than the iPhone 7 Plus. The interface of the dock is similar to what we've seen in iOS 11 on iPads.

The iPhone 8 is said to feature an OLED display that when showing black could blend almost perfectly with the notch on the top bezel. While previous reports speculated that Apple could use the phone's OLED technology to hide the notch at the top, using a white-on-black design to make the screen blend in, the company has reportedly opted not to do this.

Furthermore, given that the new phone is expected to have a 5.8-inch display with approximately 5.2 inches of usable display area, I'm not convinced that the Apple Pencil (or, again, an iPhone-specific derivative) would be a particularly good experience on that device. The left side displays the time, while the right shows battery life, signal and other indicators.

According to the report, only the high-end version of the upcoming iPhone is losing the home button, which jibes with other rumors from the past few months.

Additionally, Bloomberg reports there will be a stainless steel band around the phone which was small antenna cuts on the corners to improve reception.
