What's there in the name?

Sure, the lineup offered several interesting technical advancements over the prior generation iPhone 6s/6s Plus devices (particularly the iPhone 7 Plus relative to the iPhone 6s), and the devices are generally very good.

Even though White's assertion that investors are less focused on quarterly results and mores on the upcoming iPhone may be proven true, Apple still has a business to run between over the next few months - one that's being impacted by rumors.

The iPhone 8 is expected this year with a possible reveal in September alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus. Recent reports claim that the iPhone 8 hype is making potential iPhone 7 buyers to wait for this year's flagship phone. This information gives some implications that consumers might not see the presence of a physical fingerprint scanner once the iPhone 8 release date is reached.

The report doesn't say anything about one critical piece of technology that's believed to be responsible for iPhone 8 delays, and that's the new Touch ID sensor that should be placed under the screen.

The stronger-than-expected results helped lift Alphabet shares more than four percent in after-hours trade on Wall Street . Google has long trailed Amazon .com Inc and Microsoft Corp in the burgeoning market for cloud computing.

Unfortunately, Apple hasn't actually confirmed any details about its plans for new smartphones, so take this report with due caution. It is said to be a complete redesign, with a curved glass back, wireless charging support and some reports claim the "tenth anniversary" iPhone to cost upwards of $1000 (or approx Rs. 64,296).

Designer Benjamin Geskin created a concept iPhone 8 based on the image above. Some reports suggest that there will be nearly negligible bezels on the upcoming iPhone 8 as Apple aims to take on the new-found wide-screen fad. The phone will have an edge-to-edge display just like the Samsung Galaxy S8, according to Morgan analysts. Contradicting all the previous speculations, a new report from Economic Daily News claims that both the iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 will be following the usual launch pattern of Apple.

Berkshire Hathaway made an investment in Apple shares when its price was "much more reasonable in relation to current earnings" explained Buffett when asked why his conglomerate invested in the tech giant. As for the chipset, it is expected that Apple will use the newer A11 processor which will be built using the 10nm fabrication process. And while analysts are predicting that there will not be a delay in the release of the new iPhone, it has been indicated that there might be a shortage in the number of units available for sale once it is released. After all, there is a big difference between the iPhone 8 being released in early October and the iPhone 8 being released on October 31. It has been long-rumored that the company is working on a 3D-sensing camera for facial recognition.
