The reports and renders of the iPhone 8 are pouring in. Currently released iPhone 8 renders from iDropNews present some better concept of how Apple may implement its rumored function area on highly forecasted iPhone 8.
iPhone 8 is expected to come in at around 5.8-inches of the OLED display to use it as a Function Area which will be similar, perhaps to that of TouchBar on 2016 MacBook Pro. This area will support the virtual home button since the handset will lack the physical one.
For instance, the function area could be used to display the music widget, the virtual home button, buttons to accept a call or send a message to an incoming call, media control and much more.
The Function Area which will allow the new flagship handset of Apple to make full use of its 5.8-inch OLED display is also expected to support an embedded Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Due to the production issues with technology which Apple is facing, if they’re unable to get the embedded Touch ID scanner to work properly and produce it reliably, the company might be forced to move fingerprint scanner to the back similar to what Samsung did with the Galaxy S8.
