Apple to release 3 iPhone 8 models all at once in 2017
Coming in later this year, Apple will release 3 different models of their upcoming iPhone 8. There’s going to be a lot of changes to the outward appearance of the phone. Firstly, notice in the picture above that there is no home button on the surface of the iPhone 8. That’s because the iPhone 8 is going to be a full glass surface for it’s body with finger print recognition technology embedded throughout. That’s going to make cracked screen repairs a lot fast presumably when they break. The glass screen will go edge to edge and will have a new and specially developed OLED screen made by the same company that manufactures screens for Samsung. Samsung Note series last year was touted to have the highest quality screen and pixel density of any smartphone in the market so the news of an OLED screen on par with Samsung means that the iPhone 8 will see a major upgrade in screen quality. Rumor has it however, that only 1 of the iPhone 8 models will feature the OLED screen but that could potentially change as we get closer to release date. A few major advantages that users will see with OLED screens are lower battery consumption, higher quality picture and video, and a thinner profile for the phone itself.
Additional Features / Upgrades:
- brand new A11 processor
- wireless charging
- usb-type C charging port (rumor)

The iPhone 7 will have no headphone jack
Yes it’s true, the iPhone 7 will not be featuring a headphone jack. We’ve made numerous reports about the subject so far as we eagerly anticipate the release of the iPhone 7. So what will the future look like with out our trusty 3.5mm jack technology?

The future of headphone audio is the lightning port.
Apple wants manufacturers to stand behind them in creating a digital music interface that will work off of the lightning port on your iPhone and other devices. Such a bold move would neutralized the iPhones ability to work with old headphones and reflexively prevent lightning headphones from working with other types of cell phones and smartphones. Is this a smart move by Apple? We’re waiting to be surprised at this point because nobody that I’ve spoken to feels like this would be a good decision. When our clients are asked by us, clients seem to think that removing the 3.5mm headphone jack would actually create more harm than good and limit the cell phone’s compatibility around the world. Maybe they’ll make the iPhone 7 easier to repair than the last one.

Other solutions to this headphone problem?
I’m glad you asked. Other alternatives to the disappearance of this audio port include wireless or Bluetooth headphones. The technology for Bluetooth headphones already exists but the primary reason that Bluetooth headphones are not popular is due to the fact that they produce terrible audio quality. The best Bluetooth headphones for cell phones are the type that are over the ear (circum-aural) because they have larger batteries and can produce a better audio experience. But earbuds (the most widely used type of headphones) are abysmal when it comes to Bluetooth. The last time I bought a set of Bluetooth earbuds I paid about $250 for a nice set that I can use in the gym and returned it 1.5 days later. In addition to that I can’t say that I felt terribly safe running around with two little bio-hazards in my ears. Will history remember this move to Bluetooth and lightning headphones as a disaster? We don’t know yet, but I can point to one thing: Beats by Apple offers 2-day shipping on wireless headphones.
