    Yes! The iPhone 7 has yet to be released this year but Apple is already talking 2017 for the next big upgrade of our favorite phone.

    Possible highlights
    - glass body (!)
    - edge-to-edge bezel-free display with integrated Touch ID
    - wireless charging

    I just wonder if Apple will skip the 'S' variant in 2017 to make way for the iPhone 8. 2017 will be significant in that it will be the iPhone's 10th anniversary and the number '8' may auger well with the Chinese market. I do expect a radical redesign in the next iPhone following this year's model.

    The only thing that these speculations regarding iPhone 8 do is shake off the remaining anticipation (and interest, sadly) of the customers to the upcoming iPhone 7.

    From my point of view, I'm not that excited anymore to get a new iPhone come Fall.
    Or its probably too soon to say, and I might end up eating my words.

    Only thing keeping me from getting the 7 now is the "10th anniversary of the iPhone" hype the 8 has

    With that, my wish list is still just a LED notification light. Everything else i'll equally welcome with open arms while shouting "Apple take my moneeeeeeyyyyy"

    I have been wishing that they will make either the Apple Logo or the Ring around the Touch ID light up for notifications. That will be amazing.


    I am wishing for a good mix between metal and glass. Or maybe a return of the 5S shape, only bigger and a bit thinner?

    ^ Making the Apple Logo light up like a Mac would be awesome, although it should not be at the expense of battery life - one possibility is to make the OLED 'leak' towards the Apple logo.

    This iPhone has hype written all over it.

    Rumor has it that Apple will bring back the headphone jack on the 8, making the 7 a collector's item.

    Mmm....rumor pa rin pero puwede na: fingerprint unlock anywhere on the screen. Apple filed a patent for this nifty feature.
