iPhone 8 leaks have been unbeatable, and a growing number suggests that Apple AAPL 0.86% is planning to deliver its greatest redesign of iPhone to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the range. Now with new exclusive information, I can confirm that happen…
Working with the designer of cases Nodus, I have been able to obtain CAD files for iPhone 8 through its supply chain. We have made these to display the final design, and I can confirm that, despite the problems, the fears of Apple fell on a less ambitious “Plan B” are unfounded.

Consequently, users can expect that Apple releases an iPhone 8 that virtually eliminates the thick chamfers of the iPhones above. A screen elongated and expanded 5.8 inches will count with a cut in the top for the camera and the front sensors and should mean that the notifications change to a new area of “role” in iOS 11.
In addition to this, Apple really will replace the rear camera dual horizontally aligned iPhone 7 Plus with a handle vertically aligned on the iPhone 8. This switch is to support the great momentum of Apple in Augmented Reality where cameras aligned horizontally are more effective, and the phone is expected to be held in a horizontal orientation.
Also, although not shown in the renders, I can also confirm the port of lighting will be maintained, and there will be no switch to USB Type-C on the iPhone 8 despite its widespread adoption in MacBooks. The headphone socket will not either.
Perhaps the greatest point of conversation, however, is the start button.
Apple will almost double its size to the iPhone 8, and with the integration of Touch ID on the screen still in doubt, the company could easily use this button more big to copy Sony and integrate Touch ID on the power button instead. This would be a discrete solution, and Apple has already been granted a patent for this.
Then, how confident are Nodus and myself about the renders? To the extent that Nodus was happy that I published publicly as the source and revealed that the company is prototyping their cases to the retailing of them. Similar fonts saw Olixar go a step further and begin to sell Galaxy Note 8 cases last month.
Some of the secrets of the iPhone 8 are still the capacity of the battery, the specifications of the camera, the performance of the chipset to11 and if it will be as jaw droppingly expensive as expected. But when it comes to their appearance, ladies, and gentlemen: this is the iPhone 8.
