Apple will announce new iPhone devices in September, and according to many sources, we should expect three new devices - two upgrades to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and a premium iPhone 8.

While the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus shouldn't bring many changes to the design and the features, the iPhone 8 is rumored to come with some changes.

 

The iPhone 8 is expected to rock an OLED screen and ditch the fingerprint sensor in favor of facial recognition. It was also rumored that the device would support wireless charging. However, the latest leak claims that this feature is still questionable.

 

According to John Gruber, an Apple-focused writer and podcaster who occasionally comes up with early info on the company's products, inductive charging will "be sold separately and might be late, waiting for iOS 11.1 (a la Portrait mode last year)".

This could mean that the iPhone 8 might come without the support for wireless charging and that the company could release a case that will support it sometime after the launch.

 

Apple still has some time to find a solution, and we will have to wait for September to see what Apple has prepared for this year's lineup.
