For anyone anxious about Touch ID going away, Apple's facial recognition technology - acquired from an Israeli company called Realface - is said to be incredibly sophisticated, reliable, and even capable of distinguishing between sets of identical twins.

Rumours surrounding the 2017 iPhone have been rampant for over a year at this point.

iPhone 8 release date rumors haven't settled on a particular date yet but those rumors should emerge in a few weeks as Apple's plans firm up.

This is not the first time when iPhone details have come out. The significance of the latter feature is the fact that it allows for more space of different components that could possibly make the iPhone 8 the best and most powerful smartphone to be released. The photo allegedly shows the internal design of the hotly anticipated iPhone 8. So this time it has been the full live render images as well as cases.

Meanwhile, the question of whether Apple's new phone will feature the fingerprint scanning Touch ID system at all remains open. On the front, we can clearly see the OLED display with its cut outs on top for the ear piece and front-facing camera. Then, they said that the iPhone 8 will only arrive in 2018, and this year we will have to settle for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

What's notable about this leak is how it reveals the device's aesthetics in a real-world situation. Just don't expect the Hot New Thing to be cheap.

According to a report by AppleInsider, who obtained a research note by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 8 will launch alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Finally, Deutsche Bank AG restated a "hold" rating and issued a $130.00 target price on shares of Apple in a research note on Tuesday, June 6th. The iPhone 8 is set to enter mass production mid-September and will launch alongside the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, according to Kuo.

Though numerous reports claim that feature is not ready, which is why the iPhone 8 might not reach consumers until October or November, uncertainties loom over the launch.

Only 2-4 million iPhone 8s are expected to be built this quarter, but between 45 million and 50 million will be assembled this year.
