iPhone 8 wireless charging is in says key Apple supplier

The new iPhone will support wireless charging, one of Apple's key suppliers has prematurely confirmed, addressing one of the biggest criticisms of the best-selling smartphones to-date. The new iPhone 8, which - along with the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus - are expected to launch later this year, has unsurprisingly been the topic of copious rumor and speculation. However, much of it has centered on the new smartphone's display, its fingerprint sensor, and its camera.

The big iPhone 8 Touch ID question may just have been answered

The big iPhone 8 Touch ID question may just have been answered

It's already a given that Apple wants to give the iPhone 8 the biggest possible display for 2017, but the jury is still out on where that leaves its fingerprint sensor. Getting rid of the home button has obvious benefits, but a rear-mounted Touch ID scanner is ergonomically questionable, while integrating it into the Retina display is technologically tricky. Now, another way for Apple to slim the new iPhone's bezels and maximize screen real-estate without sacrificing Touch ID has emerged, an alternative to baking the sensor into the display itself.

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google Pixel 2 takes on iPhone with Apple’s own chip designer

Google just hired Apple's processor designer for mobile products, and they've put him in charge of making their own Pixel SOC. Manu Gulati worked with companies like AMD and Broadcom before moving to Apple in 2009, leading as inventor on a number of key processor-related patents. This may mean that Google will follow in Apple's footsteps for the Pixel 2 or Pixel 3 (probably 3, at this point) - which could mean the axe for Qualcomm from Pixel devices.

Apple's legal spat with Qualcomm might seem like background noise easily tuned out by iPhone users, but it could have a big impact on how well the iPhone 8 performs. The two companies are currently embroiled in a patent argument over cellular radio standards, with Apple threatening to withhold royalty payments that it claims are extortionate.
