Leaked Foxconn Presentation References 'Rear Touch Relocation' on iPhone 8 in EVT2 [Video]

Posted September 6, 2017 at 7:36pm by iClarified
Slides from an alleged Foxconn presentation reviewing the development of the next generation iPhone have leaked.

The presentation is entitled, 'Project Cyclops Review' and in the video we can see several slides, including:
● 2017 September Launch Capacity Planning Overview
● Y2017 Cyclops Production Forecast Comparison - Multi site allocation module
● Cyclops Historical Milestone & Ramp Forecast

Project Cyclops is believed to be the next generation OLED iPhone 8/Edition. Notably, on the historical milestone chart we can see that during the beginning of the EVT2 stage (Engineering Validation Test), there is a 'Cyclops - ID Rear Touch Relocation' event followed by a 'Fixture rework' event.


We've seen numerous leaks of iPhone rear shell which appears to have a cutout for Touch ID. It's possible that these were early prototypes and that the Touch ID sensor has been relocated or removed.

We'll know what Apple has to unveil on September 12th. Make sure to follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

I personally believe that this presentation is not speaking about the OLED iPhone (Project Ferrari). I believe it is actually talking about the "7S" or "7S+" I also believe that the relocation simply means thy moved it from a centered location on the rear (early leaks show this) to a higher location, nearer to the Apple logo (newer leaks show this).

It's fun reading these documents being launch day so close, Apple has always worked for easy to use UI and no-second-thoughts features. Whatever they came up with, is for the greater good, I hope.

I hope not. That would be terrible.

I wonder if Apple leaked that early TouchID design on the back to get the public opinion, then changed it at the last possible moment.

You will wonder, you will see, you will crib, you will accept, you will live with it, you will preach that's perfect(out of no choice). - The 6 stages of an apple fanboys iphone event lifecycle.

I think you're right and almost no one thought it was a good idea. Can you say LG? I hope not cause I hate the rear touch anything. I was even hoping to once and for all cover the entire rear apple. It's annoying.

No I am not jealous. I am one of you here. I had the same frustration when audio jack was dropped in iphone 7. I was frustrated beyond anything but eventually I accepted the fact and learned to live with it. What option do I have anyways.
