IPhone 8 Home & "Function Area" Revealed

The design of the iPhone 8 – amongst other details – was unearthed in the Home Pod code

The design of the iPhone 8 – amongst other details – was unearthed in the Home Pod code

KAZINFORM Independent developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered the principle of the virtual Home button from the accidentally-released HomePod firmware, he said on Twitter.

Luckily, Danny Winget has come out with a great video that pits the iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7S Plus. Now UI designers went to work and made mockups to visualize how exactly the top of the iPhone 8 screen looks like. The iPhone 8 looks smaller overall but it clearly has more usable screen real estate. Three models which go by the name iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and iPhone 7s plus. As always, take any pre-launch iPhone leak with due caution - we won't know anything with absolute certainty until the official September announcement. The iPhone 8 has a vertically aligned dual camera sensor while the 7S Plus has a similar horizontally aligned camera sensor as we saw in the iPhone 7 Plus.

With the iPhone 8 set to have an all-screen front, this means that a small section at the bottom may not be useable for apps, web browsing and other functionality. Images and video of a copper-tinged "iPhone 8" have been circulating for several days. We know that Apple is making a major push into the augmented reality space. The Copper Gold smartphone shown has white bezels on the side. Apple might have replaced it with a virtual home button called the "Home Indicator". However, even if this information is solid, it's possible (although incredibly unlikely) that the numbers don't represent the final iPhone design. It's frequently expected that Apple will use black bezels across the board to blend them into the phone's 5.8-inch OLED display.
