IPhone 8 to be waterproof with wireless charging, Apple supplier confirms

Apple did not respond to Hwang's comments, but is likely to be unimpressed with his willingness to divulge the plans, despite months of rumours.

Wistron is Apple's primary iPhone manufacturer, which also produces phones for some Chinese and Indian companies, as well as some local brands.

Wistron's Robert Hwang on Wednesday revealed at the company's annual shareholder assembly that the iPhone 7s Plus is coming soon with the much-awaited wireless charging technology.

We are expecting three new iPhones from Apple this year, two will have an LCD display and with come in 4.7 and 5.5 inch sizes, these could be called the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s offer some level of water repellency, so it's no surprise to see that as an iPhone 8 feature, too. Beyond this, Hwang continued, the iPhone 8 will also feature a waterproof chassis, meaning no more "expensive incidents" near bodies of water. It's possible that he means Apple's announcements will bump the sale of the older models.

This will definitely excite Apple fans who have for always been craving for wireless battery charging. Fans are eager to find out what the next iteration of the iPhone will boast.

A new series of features would also be rolled out through the iOS 11 including the file, link, and photo drag and drop.

However, previously a few rumors were circulating in the market related to the features of iPhone 8. Just the rumored stats on the phone are impressive: an edge-to-edge curved screen, 512 pixels per inch, 3D cameras, a 40 percent increase in battery life, and the TouchID function integrated on its screen. The sensors will allow for facial and iris recognition.

He said: "What we're focusing on, what we've talked about focusing on publicly, we're focusing on autonomous systems". Although it hasn't been confirmed, a number of high profile sites have already noted the leaked information.
