While the excitement surrounding the Apple Watch in 2014 was certainly significant, the actual release was a bit underwhelming relative to the hype.
With the new iPad and new iOS 11 out of the way, attention is back on what is still expected to be Apple's greatest highlight this year: the new iPhone 8. Interestingly, it looks like there is going to be more than just one iPhone.
What makes the iPhone 8 so intriguing is that Apple won't only be introducing a new design, but a completely unique design unrivaled by anything else on the market.
The latest information pertaining to the Apple iPhone 8 has been found on Reddit. In turn, there have been conflicting reports surrounding Apple's plans for the Touch ID sensor. Also, there is no rear fingerprint sensor (thank goodness!) despite rumors that Apple could move Touch ID to the back of the phone; it appears that the fingerprint reader might actually be placed under the display. Rumors have suggested that the iPhone 8 will feature a almost bezel-less screen, like that of the Samsung Galaxy S8, and the images appear to support that rumor. Check out all of the new images by clicking on the slideshow below.
Apple won't let apps annoy you with their own review prompts anymore
Apple has announced some new rules regarding app review prompts and how often developers are allowed to request them. Under the new rules, developers will no longer be able to display review prompts however and whenever they'd like.
On Reddit, user kamikasky shared what they claim to be images of the iPhone 8's and iPhone 7's front and back panels, culled from what they say is "a friend in the industry", and what manufacturers have been receiving over the last week.

And below is a photo of the iPhone 8 frame alongside what we believe are frames for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
And the best of all, this feature won't be available only on the iPhone 8, but also on the iPhone 7s and 7S Plus, as they'll all be made of glass and boast wireless charging. Both the phones will reportedly feature Wireless Charging too. According to BGR, the detail is hardly shocking, especially considering that majority of the iPhone 8 rumors say the smartphone will have nearly the same dimensions as the existing 4.7-inch iPhones. The front panel with the ultra-thin bezel and the sensor area and the rear panel are shown.
