iPhone 7: Apple's next iPhone might be waterproof, leaks suggest, but it might not tell anyone

The Independent - Tech

The next iPhone might be able to swim, according to leaks – but it might be kept secret. The company is working on making its newest iPhone waterproof, according to numerous leaks. The latest suggestion is a patent granted this week for a technique that lets Apple's mobile devices take pictures properly underwater – apparently suggesting that it is working on letting those devices go underwater safely in the first place. It is just the latest rumour in a run of leaks about the new iPhone that seems to suggest Apple is working towards a waterproof phone. Some have suggested, for instance, that Apple will be getting rid of its headphone jack in part so that it can seal up the phone, and it is also getting rid of the traditional home button as another way of stopping the water getting in.


Apple's next iPhone could cost $1,200 or more

The Independent - Tech

There are a lot of rumors and reports that point to Apple launching a redesigned iPhone this fall with a screen that takes up nearly the entire front of the phone. But if you want one this fall, you might want to start saving up now. Over the weekend, Apple fans and users started to seriously discuss the possibility that the next iPhone could cost a lot -- some people have even speculated that some more-expensive models could hit $1,500. The current iPhone 7 starts at $649 for the entry-level model. The latest round of iPhone price speculation was spurred by the writer and podcaster John Gruber, who had predicted that the gold version of the first Apple Watch would cost $9,999 or more -- and when it came out, it did.


The next iPhone will be less expensive than we thought, analysts say

Mashable

Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 is reportedly facing delays--but at least it may be less expensive than we thought. There have been several reports that the upcoming 10th anniversary iPhone could cost upwards of $1,000 due to a number of hardware changes, including an OLED screen, a stainless steel frame and glass back, and more. The iPhone 8 will likely be between $850 and $900 for a 6 GB model, according to a note UBS sent to investors. "Apple is about mainstream luxury, so a $1,000 phone seems less likely," the note said, according to a Business Insider report. The company is expected to release three different phones: the 7S, 7S Plus and the 8, with the 8 naturally being the priciest of the lot.
