Another day, another iPhone 8 rumor that keeps Apple fans guessing. As this new rumor goes, apparently the new iPhone 8 won't come in white. It's sad, I know -- but I'm sure the rest of the rumored perks will make up for the color loss.
Forbes reports the new iPhone 8 will be released without the "white" color option, which as always been a pretty sleek choice, if you ask me. They reference Mac Otakara -- a site with connections to the Asian supply chains and accessory manufactures -- and say the white color will allegedly be "scrapped" once the iPhone 8 comes out. Bummer, I know... but this isn't confirmed yet, so keep your chin up.
Forbes also reports that the iPhone Pro (as it's rumored to be called) will most likely debut without the touch ID, which has made it so easy for us to unlock our phones.
Fans believe that instead of a fingerprint-enabled touch ID, the iPhone 8 will come with a facial recognition feature called "Face ID." Many are skeptical of this rumor, however, because Apple has yet to prove a feature as complex as facial recognition would actually be secure.
Another potential problem that may arise from facial recognition is the possibility of someone's face not being read due to lighting or facial accessories like piercings and glasses.
With all of these cool new features, it's possible the sought after new phone will be delayed.
That's right folks, the iPhone 8 might be delayed again due to supply chains not being able to meet such high demands. If these rumors are true, we might be seeing the iPhone Pro in Oct. or Nov. of 2017.
But that's not all.
According to Business Insider, there is a possibility that the iPhone 8 announcement might come along with the announcement of the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
Could it be possible that the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus come with a more convenient price tag than the iPhone 8? Let's hope so, because the iPhone 8 will set you back around $1,200.
If you don't think you'll be able to afford a new iPhone but yearn for the feeling of a new Apple product in your hand. Run to your nearest Best Buy or Walmart and pick up the discontinued iPod Shuffle or Nano before it's too late.
