You have to hand it to tech geeks. They always have an eye on the future. With the impending unveiling of the iPhone 7 series coming in September of this year, iPhone enthusiasts and tech geeks are already contemplating what the inevitable iPhone 8 series will have in the offering.
Right now, it’s too early to assess the changes that have been rumoured to be part of the iPhone 7 series. Among the supposed changes are the elimination of the 16GB base memory platform in favor of a move up to 32GB base memory platform, plus new dual-lens camera technology. With everything else remaining close to the iPhone 6 series, iPhone users will be looking for more significant changes in the future.
According to the geeks at Macworld, the future is indeed set to be filled with some of the most exciting innovations since the original iPhone first hit the marketplace. Some of the major innovations look to be on target with the iPhone 8 series, which should be ready to hit production sometime around the latter part of 2017.
Among the early technological candidates for inclusion in the iPhone 8 will be things like wireless charging capabilities, further improvements in the dual-lens camera technology that is scheduled to appear with the iPhone 7, new haptic feedback features and a full-size, glass OLED screen.
At the core of Apple’s desire to make astounding changes to the iPhone product line in 2017 is the desire to celebrate the product’s 10th anniversary in grand fashion. The company is also positioning itself for a brutal fight with Samsung and other Android smart phone manufacturers that have grown significantly more aggressive in recent years. Apple is constantly exposed to competition, but the Samsung Galaxy series is pushing the envelope.
Based on what has been happening in the industry in recent years, it’s time for all smart phone designers and manufactures to slow down on power-zapping features and start addressing ways to give users more battery life. If the technology to bring wireless charging capabilities to the marketplace becomes a reality, the first developer to introduce it is sure to make a serious run for market share. That seems to be what a future Apple has in mind for the iPhone.
