Rumor has it that there’s going to be a new iPhone soon. I mean, is anyone actually still surprised? In the race to be the biggest tech conglomerate, it feels like Apple moves on from each iPhone faster than we get over breakups. We’ve already written about the potential features of the next iPhone, but here’s an update:
As part of their tenth anniversary, Apple is taking iPhones to the next level: “The new 5.8-inch phone will probably be called the iPhone 8, but some believe Apple will call it the (far cooler-sounding) ‘iPhone X.’ The new phone will look something like a smooth black monolith, with few visual interruptions to its sleek design…As rumored, the sides of the iPhone 8 will likely be made of forged stainless steel, a less expensive material than the aluminum used in current iPhones…”
Also, and this is something that really has us worried, “Apple has been working to remove the physical Home button from the iPhone, relocating it underneath the display surface. It would become a button to touch, not press.”
Guys, we haven’t even been able to wrap our heads around the fact that the iPhone 7 doesn’t have a headphone jack, and now, so many changes are coming! And yes, we know what you’re going to say: “Stop complaining, you don’t have to buy the new iPhone.” That may be true now, but someday, our current phones will break, and then we’ll have to get used to everything we’re desperately trying to reject about the new iPhone. *sigh*
Plus, it’s expected to cost more than $1,000 (around P50,000), which, if you ask me, is just absurd—unless, of course, it’s a phone and a vibrator in one. If so, give me five.
