However, a number of rumours have cropped up over the last few months, suggesting significant shifts in Apple's design format, the company's flirtations with VR/AR capabilities, pricing of future iPhones.

However, there is good news for users who experience these issues, as of since Friday, Apple has announced they will fix iPhone 6 Plus devices that have been influenced with and/or experience the touch screen issues for an administration expense of just $229.

In regards to the latter-most of those scenarios: it's interesting to note that iDrop News recently received a bevy of exclusive information about the iPhone 8 - or the so-called "iPhone Edition" - provided courtesy of Benjamin Geskin's personal supply chain sources. Despite the delays, there is some good news about the next flagship smartphone from Apple. Fast Company first reported the iPhone 8, which will feature an 5.8-inch OLED display panel, and that it will cost upwards of $1000 compared to other models like the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus which won't feature the new panels. Currently, the most expensive model of the iPhone 7 configured with 256GB of internal storage costs £919.

This 4.7-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone 8 with an OLED screen display is pretty much expected to face the public in the September event.

An excerpt from White's research note with investment banking firm Drexel Hamilton, obtained by Macrumours, claims "Our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3D sensing technology, but still in time for the December holidays". And that may force Apple to choose between some very unappealing Plan Bs. That would easily make it the costliest iPhone to date.

The rumored iPhone 8 is believed to come with a cheaper price tag. This is expected to upgrade sales of the new iPhone 8 once it is officially put on sale.
