iPHONE 8

WHILE WE WAIT FOR ITS OF­FI­CIAL RE­VEAL, HERE’S WHAT iOS 11 TELLS US ABOUT AP­PLE’S NEXT PHONE

Australian T3 - - APPLE BITES BACK -

SHARPER SCREEN With a change in de­sign for an edge-to-edge screen, the iPhone 8 will likely have a new dis­play size, with a new higher res­o­lu­tion. It’ll also likely switch things up to OLED (which will look bet­ter edge-to-edge) or get a Pro­Mo­tion 120Hz screen like the iPad Pro – but prob­a­bly not both, since it’s in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult. Only one prod­uct has ever fea­tured a screen like that – PlayS­ta­tion VR – and Sony said it was a huge tech­ni­cal chal­lenge EDGE-TO-EDGE DIS­PLAY Ev­ery­one’s do­ing it, and you can ex­pect Ap­ple to get rid of the iPhone’s bezels too. This will be great with the new fo­cus on AR apps (see be­low) – it’ll be like the phone’s in­vis­i­ble… ish CAM­ERA FO­CUS iOS 11 uses a new im­age for­mat (HEIF) for your photos that keeps file sizes smaller. Ex­pect the iPhone 8 to have a new higher-megapixel sen­sor (prob­a­bly 19MP), yet im­ages to take up no ex­tra room VIDEO STAR The iPhone 8 will take more vi­brant 4K video, but also even more dramatic slo-mo video at 960FPS (up from 240FPS now). That’s a 32x slow-down, for se­ri­ously dramatic ac­tion shots GOES UP TO A11 Ap­ple is go­ing big on ma­chine learn­ing and AR/VR right now. Not only will the A11 be Ap­ple’s fastest chip, it’ll also be de­signed with these in mind, in­clud­ing lots of graph­ics power and even bet­ter mo­tion sens­ing
