The home button is the key to the iPhone and the design hasn't changed much since it launched in 2007.

It's also rumoured the iPhone 8 will include iris/facial recognition, meaning users will be able to unlock the device just by looking at it. Gesture controls will now bring you to the main app grid and show you which apps are open.

Because of the hype behind the iPhone 8, a number of iPhone users have held off on upgrading their device to wait for this 10th-anniversary edition of the smartphone.

The tech giant will eliminate the home button on the flagship - and most expensive - version of its upcoming iPhone, which is expected to be introduced to the public on September 12, according to reports.

Earlier leaks have suggested design changes in detail.

The iPhone 8 will, of course, not be launching alone; it'll be accompanied by both the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and may even also be joined by the Apple Watch Series 3, if some reports are accurate.

He writes, 'For optimized promotional effect, we think Apple may unveil the three models simultaneously in September, though the launch date of the OLED version may trail that of LCD models, and supply tightness may not improve before 1H18'.

Also as per the reports, the phone will support wireless charging. Wireless charging uses magnetic coils built into the phone and charging pad to create an electromagnetic field and generate a current that charges your phone.

Apple might remove the iconic physical home button of the device and replace it with a virtual button.

The home screen will show six vertical rows of four apps, for a total of 24 icons on each page. The iPhone 8's display said to be flat, and won't have curved edges like the ones feature on the Samsung Galaxy S8. It appears that the Apple iPhone 8 will be a momentous event as the rumors and leaked specs and features about the possible unprecedented features have been swirling around over the worldwide web for months.

As evidenced by its strong Q4 guidance, Apple continues to bet on itself and expects to maintain its high-operating momentum through the rest of the year. Many reports have pegged the iPhone 8's display size at 5.8 inches.
