I don't think there was even a week this year that I haven't painted at least some little rumor about iPhones expected in 2017.
Some sound very likely and are recurring, others generate a lot of debt.
Today, the renowned Bloomberg that he currently has on his team of reporters Mark Gurman,9to5Mac, boy who has very reliable sources within Apple corroborated several of these rumors and made a summary of what we can expect from Apple in terms of new iPhones for the second half.
According to the vehicle, Apple should even launch "iPhones 7s / 7s Plus" (updated versions of the current ones) together with a new "iPhone 8" (or "iPhone X", or "iPhone Edition") that will bring a slightly larger screen that of the iPhone 7 Plus, however, in a physical size similar to that of the iPhone 7, since it occupies almost the entire front.
The company would have already tested designs with very curved glass and metallic backs, but recently it seems to have had slightly curved glass prototypes (such as the current ones) both at the front and at the back.
The screen itself will be flat, OLED (supplied by Samsung), and between the glasses we will have a stainless steel structure.
THE Bloomberg Nor can he say for sure if Apple can incorporate Touch ID on the screen, but he cites that this is a great possibility.
It raises the chance, still, of having two cameras (from Sony) in the front as behind and the rear, as pointed out by other rumors, would be positioned vertically (in some way, providing even better photos).
The article mentions that iOS 11, to be presented in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2017, will bring “an updated user interface”.
If it is to bet, I would not expect anything drastic as the change from iOS 6 to 7, but some visual adaptations according to the adoption of the OLED screen (maybe the long awaited Dark Mode will arrive) and some modernization brushstrokes.
here and there by the mobile operating system.
L inside the “iPhone 8”, it also mentions Bloomberg, Apple should adopt a processor manufactured in 10 nanometers which will provide gains in performance and energy consumption compared to the current A10, which is manufactured in 16 nanometers.
The bad news even with regard to all that there is a possibility that the “brand new” iPhone, due to the adoption of these new technologies and tight supply by Apple partners, delay “from one to two months” to reach the market in relation to the schedule traditional September / October.
And a: excited?

The “famous” analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, from KGI Securities, another one who believes in the thesis that the production of the “iPhone 8” is slightly behind the “iPhones 7s / 7s Plus”.
While these will be ready in the traditional August / September period, the new model will only arrive in October / November.
The reason, as always, is a shortage of new custom materials adopted by Apple, as well as innovative manufacturing methods that hinder this early stage of mass production.
