According to a rumor, Apple is expected to adopt a forged stainless steel crafting process for its glass-encased iPhone 8 instead of using traditional aluminum CNC machining.
A report from the Taiwan pretense mentioned that – the transition on Tuesday, according to DigiTimes , along with component orders are expected to be shared between Foxconn and the U.S.-based manufacturing partner, Jabil.
According to a apple insider, forging stainless steel is a machining process in which wrapped two CNC-machined bands made from a bespoke steel metal around a “glass-sandwich” body. However, from Mac to Apple Watch to iPhone 7 and 7s every succeeding product has used aluminum because of being lightweight yet durable alloy.
Today’s report supports recent rumors also asserts that Apple is intending to use a flexible OLED display rather than the LCD panels that have appeared on previous iPhones. This could make the devices lighter while also offering more vivid colours and contrasts. Wireless charging, an invisible home button and more features are also maybe included.
As MacRumors suggest it’s going to be a radical redesign, with an edge-to-edge display that does away with the top and bottom bezels where features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the front-facing camera are housed. Instead,Touch ID and the camera may be built directly into the display , meaning there will be no Home button.
However, there is still confusion over whether all of the models will have a curved screen .But it has benn suggested everything from 4.7 inches to 5.8 inches.
The iPhone 8 is still under development and will likely launch in the fall of 2017. As 2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple has some major plans to celebrate the occasion, iPhone 8 is a great expectations. And yes now that too with “glass sandwich” design. *winks*
