Apple is Reportedly Developing Hardware for the iPhone 8 in Israel

Apple is developing hardware for next year's massive redesign of the iPhone in Israel, according to a new report from Business Insider.

A local employee told the site that hardware for the 'iPhone 8' is being created at Apple's office in Herzliya, Israel. The employee, who solders components for Apple, didn't give much away, just saying that it will be 'different' than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.

The source also said that the iPhone 8 will have a better camera than the iPhone 7 and that Apple uses its Herzliya facility for 'New products.'

The worker used the term "iPhone 8" unprompted in our conversation. That was interesting because the next logical name for the iPhone to be released in 2017 should be "iPhone 7s." iPhone 8 isn't due until 2018. Apple has a two-year development cycle for new iPhones. However, some observers have noted that the iPhone 7 was a largely incremental update. S-series iPhones are also supposed to be incremental updates, but the phone that is coming in the 2017 "iPhone 7s" slot is expected to be a much more dramatic improvement to the line. So some people believe that Apple might break its naming tradition in 2017, skip iPhone 7s, and give the iPhone a new number or name out of step with the current sequence. "iPhone 8" would be one option.

While employees in Herzliya may be referring to the next generation iPhone as the 'iPhone 8', the facility is not involved with branding or marketing of Apple's products.

Apple is reportedly working on a massive redesign of the iPhone for next year. It's said the company will introduce three new iPhone models with one of them featuring a curved OLED display. It's widely rumored that the smartphone will be moving to an all-glass design. It will purportedly have a front glass cover and chassis, joined by a metal bezel and an edge-to-edge display that has no bezels on the top and bottom. Additionally, the front camera, Touch ID, speaker, and other sensors will apparently be embedded into the display.

1. 28 muslim countries 1.6 billion people said nothing on this post 2. this is a technology and innovation website what do politics and religion have to do with this, just shows the hatred and jealousy inside of you. Otherwise, you would have appreciated the article and the work displayed. 3. Those 28 countries invented something called algebra something used to study everything around you. 4. Its 2016 like everyone is tired of bullshit by people like you, go to a website that publishes on religion and politics if you want to post something like this.
