He also suggests that rumors about the iPhone 8 release day are unfounded and that the handset will be released on the very same day as the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. However, it has been rumored that Apple has scrapped the initial idea of touch identification, replacing it with a sophisticated facial recognition system. After the initial leak confirming the mere existence of the feature came into the world, HomePod let us know that it might be used to confirm payments through Apple Pay.

The render above, posted in the wee hours of this morning, show what is supposedly the next iPhone in some sort of case.
Prior to the information leak by the Foxconn executive there had been speculation that the next iPhone will cost between $1,000 and $1,200. They could be depicted, for the iPhone 8, in the image you can see above - although that's more of a "copper" or "bronze" hue than gold to our eyes.
Apple supplier Samsung Display, the maker of iPhone 8 OLED panels, has already entered full-scale production.
Of course, there's no telling what Apple will do until the official announcement in September, so we'll have to take all leaks with due caution for now. Interestingly, the Touch ID is not present at the bottom of the device, which could mean that it might be embedded into the screen.
Next month, Apple is expected to unveil its next generation of iPhone products. Apple is clearly trying to encourage more of that UGC with the promotion of the #ShotoniPhone hashtag displayed prominently in its bio.
