We’re still months out from the official launch of Apple’s massively overhauled iPhone 8 but that doesn’t stop the rumor mill from churning out details about the device. But, today instead of doling out any details about the specifications or the feature set of the upcoming iPhone, we’ve received fresh renders of the device running iOS 11.
These renders, which are purely speculative, have been released by iDropNews and gives us a look at how the iPhone 8 might look when the latest iteration of Apple’s mobile operating system unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC’17) earlier this week. This is not the first time renders of the upcoming iPhone 8 have leaked on the interwebs but it builds on the existing set of leaks by showing off its software capabilities.
For the past few months, the iPhone 8 has been speculated of carrying a huge 5.8-inch edge-to-edge AMOLED displays that will be crammed in a body no bigger than last year’s iPhone 7. It has already ordered 80 million panels from Samsung Display to meet the capacity for the production of the device– but the Korean giant is maintaining a surplus– keeping in mind the Cupertino giant can place additional orders.
It has recently also been reported that Apple is integrating the TouchID directly under the massive bezel-less display instead of the same being on the back — at the center — under the Apple logo. The renders attached underneath (as well as above), you can notice how some of the most prominent features announced earlier in the week will look on the iPhone 8. This means you can see how the new Control Center, redesigned Apple Music tab, Lock Screen, and iMessage integration with Apple Pay, and other apps.

The screenshots here tell us how iOS 11 may adapt to the curved edges of the display, where the banner at the top will just be divided on the basis of the hardware setup. At least Apple is not adopting the front camera setup included on the Essential PH-1. It is integrating the camera, as well as the sensors at the center of the device just next to the ear piece — where the display curves around the same.
