The wireless charging technology would heat up the phones more, necessitating a "new graphite layer to protect the 3D Touch sensor from being damaged". However, it will only be the anniversary iPhone or the iPhone 8 who's sporting most of the extra features.

In past few years, Apple has unveiled new iPhone models in the month of September and the Cupertino-based giant is yet again expected to debut the iPhone 8 in September 2017.

The iPhone 8 which may also be called the "iPhone X" would be launched alongside the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. Besides the display adding to the cost, the upgraded memory is another factor increasing the price. This feature was already out in the market from some time with iPhone 7 devices. To recall, the all-glass body was last used on the iPhone 4S and it's widely expected to make a comeback. The company reportedly hired engineers with expertise in wireless charging to build the technology and discussed the project with suppliers in Asia. For now nothing is official, but multiple reports and sources do suggest that the iPhone 8 is expected to be a quantum leap in terms of design and technology.

A number of other tech firms, including Tesla and Microsoft, also announced price raises in the United Kingdom previous year in the wake of the Brexit vote and a dip in the pound's value. As per the reports, the 2017 iPhone to ditch conventional LCD panels in favour of OLED display, which cost nearly double of the current gen's LCDs.

Apparently this won't be the only thing the iPhone 8 fails to come boxed with, either. Thus, the cost will be around $1000.

Comet 45P will appear blueish-green due to vaporizing diatomic carbon, which appears green in space's near-vacuum conditions. It will also be the closest comet encounter in over 30 years, so it's certainly a must-see for avid skywatchers.

The USB Type-C cable which is now offered to connect the iPhone 7 and earlier versions using Lightning to the USB-C ports on the latest MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook, though, is said to remain an optional extra. The wireless charging facility was introduced three years ago by Lumia 920.

Curved-edged display is another attribute of this phone just like Samsung Galaxy S7.

In addition, wireless charging could be less ambitious than advertised.

For example, AirFuel Alliance's Rezence-specification allows charging from across several centimeters and allows for the use of a charging bowl or charging through a desktop. Second is the "uncoupled" charging technology where you can power up the device with Wi-Fi across a room. The inductive wireless charging service started with Apple watch in 2015.
