 IPHONE NEWS

Could the iPhone 8 be the first phone from Apple without any bezel on the screen?

Bye bye to the Home button too?

Product: iPhone 8 | Manufacturer: Apple

It looks like the upcoming iPhone 8 isn't going to have a screen bezel. That's according to a couple of iOS app developers called Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo.

The pair found an icon in the code for the HomePod speaker firmware that certainly suggests that screen edges are going to be a thing of the past in the iPhone range.

Interestingly, it looks like the Home button could be a think of the past as well. It looks set to be replaced with 3D face mapping. You'll hold your phone up to your face, and an infrared scanner will make sure that you're you.

IT IS MY FACE

Which sounds a bit bonkers if you ask me, but since no one ever asks me, I don't suppose that really matters.

This could also be the end of TouchID, although the smart money is on the screen itself having some sort of print-recognition hardware.

Of course this could all be nonsense, but since it was discovered in some of Apple's own code, it's worth taking with a smaller pinch of salt than usual.

Hopefully we'll find out next month, when most people think that Apple is going to be announcing its latest handset.
