Three things that will change after iPhone 8 forever
As we all are aware that whenever Apple launches the iPhone or any product (Mac, iPad or Apple Watch) it redefines the limits. The things which are coming from the long-time gets changed forever. Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 8 in next week and many things are expected from the 10th anniversary iPhone.

Today in this article, we are going to talk about three things which will change after the iPhone 8 launch.

Futuristic design of iPhone 8

The new iPhone will be the biggest reconfiguration of the front of Apple’s smartphone since its inception a decade ago. The mechanical home button was ditched last year in favor of a fixed pad with haptic feedback, and this year Apple is removing the whole thing. The iconic outline of an iPhone, featuring two big bars of bezel at top and bottom and a round home button, is going to be no more. 

We’re all underestimating just how massive a change this will be, and how strong the reaction to it will be. Those of us in the know have grown blasé about bezel-less screens, while most people just aren’t yet aware of what’s coming from Apple.

In any case, once Apple drops its hype-rogen bomb in a week’s time, every person with even a passing interest in tech or smartphones will have the iPhone 8’s bezel-starved look as their new paradigm for an ideal design. It won’t take months or weeks for everyone to start demanding bezel-free phones, it’ll be instant.

Flagship prices of iPhone 8

Same story as with displays: Apple’s pricey new iPhone won’t be an isolated exception, but rather it will be the foam at the top of a gradually building wave of change in the mobile industry. By most predictions, the new flagship iPhone will be priced somewhere in the vicinity of $1,000, probably starting just below that mark and topping out somewhere above it, subject to spec. 

This is going to be the biggest upward push that Apple has made with the price of its top iPhone model, though indications are that demand will still likely outstrip supply. I’ve gone into more depth on the potential reasons and justifications for a $1,000 phone price in my article discussing that pricing with respect to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8, which starts at $930 in the US.

The broader market trend in 2017 has been for all phones to get more expensive. Huawei’s P9 was one of 2016’s hidden gems, a bargain of a flagship phone that had design and performance far above its price point.

Augmented Reality on iPhone 8

The ARKit toolset for creating AR experiences that Apple unveiled as part of its new iOS 11 is a massive upgrade over anything else that’s come before it. That operating system will come preloaded on the iPhone 8 and will be distributed to the majority of iPhones already in use, making for an immediate user base of hundreds of millions of people. 

But its core advantage is that it doesn’t require special hardware like the Google Tango system, ARKit apps just work with your regular iPhone or iPad camera. It’s augmented reality done in the most unintrusive way possible, and I foresee it being a runaway success because of how well it will synergize with Apple’s new bezel-less screen and because of how good the early attempts with it have been.

Must Read: Apple is losing its innovation capabilities and iPhone 8 is proof

Apple CEO Tim Cook has repeatedly expressed his belief that “augmented reality will be bigger than virtual reality,” and with the instant user base that the iPhone promises to ARKit developers, it’s easy to foresee AR taking off with the launch of the iPhone 8 and iOS 11. Google is certainly hurrying to keep pace, recently introducing its own competing offering in ARCore. 

Joost van Dreunen, CEO of SuperData Research, has noted that it “seems like augmented reality is the new frontier for big tech firms,” while also underlining just how much bigger Apple’s ARKit will be relative to ARCore: “Just to be clear here, Google is aiming to have ARCore operational on 100M units at the end of the preview, but Apple is likely to crush that number five-fold.”
