However the biggest change of all is the removal of the home button and fingerprint scanner. As it's not on the rear of the device, tech-heads are theorising the TouchID will now be embedded in the display.
Another feature set to get tongues wagging is the introduction of the new, dual-lens vertical camera. It'll have the same zoom capabilities of the previous smartphones, but some are saying it could have been designed specifically to cater for the new augmented reality features expected to be announced by Apple in coming months.
The release date of the iPhone 8 is still up in the air, however, with sources saying the smartphone mightn't make it to shelves until early 2018.
