In the aftermath of Apple's introduction of three new iPhone models early last week, we got our first taste of Apple’s A11 Bionic processor domination via a leaked Geekbench score. The results showed a device with six cores and a "mere" 3GB of RAM absolutely killing it with single- and multi-core scores of 4061 and 9959 respectively. Now that the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are no longer a secret, benchmark scores for all three are beginning to make their way to Geekbench. These new results confirm what we all witnessed last week, and prove that all three devices pack considerable more... Read more...
Following months of rumors, leaks, and a mountain of speculation, Apple earlier this week finally unveiled its next generation iPhone devices, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10). While the phones themselves are interesting for what they bring to the mobile sector, what is most impressive is the custom A11 Bionic system-on-chip (SoC) driving these handsets. Given Apple's history of designing burly SoCs, it can be easy to take for granted the performance gains, but there is a lot that goes into designing these slices of silicon. There is typically a three-year development... Read more...
With all the hoopla surrounding the iPhone X yesterday, it's easy to forget that Apple also announced two additional smartphones: the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Each generation of iPhone brings with it a custom system-on-chip (SoC) with an impressive amount of power, and Apple is keeping that tradition with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10). Each of those handsets sports a custom A11 Bionic processor with six cores of computing muscle—four high performance cores and two power efficiency cores. If early leaked benchmarks are any indication, the A11 Bionic is going to set some records.The A11 Bionic is reportedly built on a 10-nanometer FinFET process. We suspect the two power efficiency cores will perform the bulk medial... Read more...

There is typically an enormous amount of buzz and excitement immediately preceding the launch of a new iPhone, and today's unveiling is especially noteworthy because it marks the 10-year anniversary of Apple's game-changing handset. However, not everyone is looking forward to the big reveal, and we are not talking about just Android fans. Hundreds of AT&T employees and other members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) are planning to protest at Apple's new campus, where the next iPhone models (iPhone 8 and iPhone X) will be revealed.

Apple iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith has been combing through recently leaked iOS 11 code to see what kind of nuggets are stored inside, and what he has found so far are references next batch of iPhones.

Based on his findings, Apple is planning to release three iPhone models—an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as followups to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (meaning Apple will skip the usual "s" naming scheme, such as iPhone 7s and iPhone...

Apple can’t be happy about how leaky its supply chain and its own internal operations are right now. Thanks to supplier leaks and slow drips from its own HQ, nearly every aspect of its next generation iPhones has been revealed. The latest pieces of the puzzle that has been confirmed by the iOS 11 Gold Master (GM) leak are the names of the three smartphones that will be announced on Tuesday: iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (confirming previous rumors). As you might expect, iPhone X is what we have all been referring to as the iPhone 8 for the past year. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are what... Read more...
It's looking more and more likely that the next flagship iPhone will have a price tag that starts at around $1,000. This shouldn't come as a surprise given the rising costs of flagship smartphones, and expensive components (like the OLED display panel) that Apple has to factor in and still enjoy its enviable profit margins. Now, some analysts are suggesting that Apple might go the bundle route to make those who might otherwise be averse to spending $1,000 on a smartphone more receptive. Analysts for Barclays claim that Apple might include a one-year subscription to Apple Music and 200GB of iCloud... Read more...
It is widely expected that Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 (or iPhone X, depending on who you ask), will be one of the most expensive flagship smartphones ever released by a major manufacturer (the new Galaxy Note 8 retails for roughly $950). Reports peg that starting price of the iPhone 8 at around $1,000, and today, we're being clued in to at least one contributor the lofty price tag: the OLED display panel. According to well-respected KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung is the sole supplier of the OLED display panels that are used by Apple on the iPhone 8. The only other major manufacturer...

A Dutch-language website is claiming that Apple's next flagship smartphone will be called iPhone X, pronounced iPhone 10, and not iPhone 8 as previously rumored. That is not to say there will not be an iPhone 8 model—there will be, it just will not be the flagship version that has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors over the past several months. Confused yet?Whereas Apple has gotten in the habit of releasing model numbers followed by "s" variants in between numerical upgrades—iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7—the next iPhone launch is special because it will represents the 10-year anniversary...
