It wasn’t too long ago that the major rumor swirling around Apple was that the company was building a car.
Apple’s plans for Touch ID in the upcoming and oft-rumored iPhone 8 seem to be in flux, with the company allegedly working towards one goal, but perhaps being forced to go another route.
Between virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), Apple has been outspoken in its support for the latter technology.
When a company sets forth on a path, whether that’s to launch a streaming music service, or a new phone, there should be a goal that’s meant to be reached — aside from grabbing subscribers and selling units.
One of the biggest storylines from the iPhone 7 launch was that, as had been heavily rumored for months, Apple did indeed remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the smartphone lineup.
Some of the rumors swirling around the still unofficial iPhone 8 refuse to die down. Instead they simply take a month, or two, off before resurfacing.
The iPhone 8 is expected to arrive sometime later this year, but leading up to that arrival date there is a lot of back-and-forth going on.
Even analysts, depending on how far away an iPhone launch is, can’t always agree on what Apple is planning on doing.
