iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

Apple might not be radically changing the iPhone. At least not this year. But it won't be long before it does. Contradicting his own earlier report, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst and prophet of upcoming products and features, has pulled forward the timetable for Apple's somewhat new yet familiar next iPhone, which could be the iPhone 8.

Despite the new features, however, it could be wrapped in a design similar to older iPhones.

Why does the iPhone SE exist?

This week Apple revealed a new smartphone that looks just like one of their old smartphones - why would they do such a thing? This is the iPhone SE, a device that uses the design of the iPhone 5 (or 5S, if you prefer) but bumps up its internal capabilities with the power of the iPhone 6S. The dimensions of this device are exactly the same as the iPhone 5s - the display is exactly the same, too - but it has a better processor and a better set of cameras. But why?

The next iPhone will not be significantly different from the last. Of that you can be sure. If you're an Android smartphone fan, you've come to expect this. If you're an iPhone user, this is what you've come to rely on. We've had nearly a decade of fan battles between iOS and Android, all leading toward the place we're at right now - smartphone singularity.
