Speculations about the features and release date of the iPhone 8 are now circling on the internet due to rumors regarding the 10th anniversary of Apple's innovative phones, which just happens to be in 2017.

A report from Yibada suggests that the next iPhone from the tech giant will feature the absence of the solid Home button. The new Home key for iPhone 8 is speculated to be integrated in the screen with an edge-to-edge display. Also, the new iOS 10 is rumored to be the culprit behind the success of having an onscreen Home Key display.

Rumors regarding the upgrades and innovative new features of the upcoming iPhone 8 also include a full casing made of Zirconium ceramic (the white ceramic casing used for the Apple Watch) and a major enhancement on its camera. However, the possibility of having a new model made out of Zirconium ceramic seems a little out of hand as of the moment since the transferring process and mass production of the unique casing is not that simple, according to a report from Value Walk.

According to a iPhone 8 Look, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will feature a high-end camera with an auto focus, optical image stabilization, and a 3D to 4K resolution. The camera is also expected to have 14 megapixels for the rear view, while a 4-megapixel shooter will be provided on the front. Various colors are also expected to be available for the casing, including Rose Gold, Silver, Space Grey and Gold. 

Additionally, the highly anticipated device will also boast a Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant touch screen display, a retina display, and an added iris and improved fingerprint scanner for security measures. Rumors point out that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be released in the fourth quarter of 2017.
