Apple’s Anniversary iPhone Edition Faces Inevitable Delays
Apple is expected to be unveiling three devices come September. Two of these will be the traditional upgrade from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices while the third device is a whole new device that is slated to come with a curved OLED screen.
However, according to a report by Bloomberg, it looks like the 10th anniversary iPhone will be arriving about two months later than planned. This is because Apple desperately wants to embed the fingerprint sensor beneath the OLED but this has taken way longer than expected.
This is the same issue that Samsung faced with its Galaxy S8 series. However, the Seoul-based manufacturer couldn’t complete it on time and so, it decided to place the fingerprint scanner on the back of the device.
Although Apple isn’t saying much on the new device, the rumor mill has been busy churning out news that the iPhone will be coming with a “Function Area” rather than a home button.
Aside that, the device is also said to have a new front camera that feature 3D face mapping capabilities. The report also states that there could be a dual-camera setup.
