The latest iphone smartphone is expected to be a radical change for the company, which will seek to wow users for the 10th anniversary of the device.

The latest leaks suggest the new phone - its price could be in the region of £1,000 - will actually be called the iPhone X and will include wireless charging, facial recognition, an edge-to-edge display and - for the first time - no home button. Apple is expected to release the device alongside two other phones, called the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

Tradition dictates the devices will go on sale a week after their announcement, making it likely the iPhone 8 will be available for pre-order on September 15 and hit stores on Friday September 22.

There could be a limited supply of the iPhone 8 for the first few months of sales.

The company normally releases a new design one year and follows with a slight upgrade the year after. Following this logic, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are anticipated to feature minor upgrades to the iPhone 7, such as a faster chip and longer battery life.

The company is also expected to unveil a third generation of the Apple Watch and a 4K Apple TV.

How much will it cost?


iPhone 8 price:
iPhone 8 64GB price: $699, £699, AU$1,079

iPhone 8 256GB price: $849, £849, AU$1,329

The iPhone 8 price starts at $699, £699, AU$1,079 for the 64GB variant, while the larger, 256GB version is $849, £849, $1,329.

The 8 and 8 Plus models, which may be available in greater numbers and earlier, are likely to be cheaper, close to the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus prices of £599 and £719.

The iPhone X will probably be Apple's most expensive handset year, with estimates suggesting it could cost $1,000 in the US . The weak pound and VAT mean that this could well translate into a cost of £1,000 or more in the UK.

What colours will it come in?
Analysts and leaks suggest the premium iPhone X will come in at least three colours: white, black and copper or gold. The white and black colours are fairly standard, but a third colour is thought to be coming in either a copper or a champagne gold hue.



What features will the iPhone X have

The latest leaks from Apple's firmware revealed a virtual home button, that could be resized or even hidden.

Facial recognition software

Apple is expected to replace its Touch ID fingerprint scanner and home button with an infrared scanner that unlocks the phone using facial recognition software. The security upgrade is said to be super fast, able to scan a user's face and unlock the device in "millionths of a second".

It will work with a 3D camera, according to leaked images.

Similar facial recognition is currently available on rival phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S8.

There are suggestions that the facial recognition could allow the iPhone to be able to tell when you are looking at it, so that it can mute notification sounds and saving your colleagues from your annoying ringtone.

Animoji
Animoji are a new form of moving emoji that can be customised using facial recognition software, according to 9to5Mac. Users will be able to scan their face and the animoji will match their expression in a short animation.

SmartCam


Leaks at the end of July from Apple's own code suggested new developments in Apple's camera technology. The "SmartCam" was revealed in firmware for the HomePod smart speaker, which revealed it could identify different scenes and objects, such as fireworks, foliage, babies, pets, snow or sport.

Augmented reality directions

Clues in Apple's upcoming software suggest it will introduce a new method for directing users. The iPhone X could guide users around towns and cities using augmented reality to superimpose directions onto the view through the camera.

iOS 11


The best indication of how the iPhone X could look is Apple's latest software, which was unveiled in June and will ship on the new device. The standout features of iOS 11 are peer-to-peer Apple Pay and a redesigned Control Centre. It also new safety features, including a do not disturb while driving mode and an Emergency SOS option that will lock thieves out when its owner is in danger.

Wireless charging

Batteries are still the big problem with mobile phones - as good as they are, most still last just a day - and battery tech is only making incremental progress. This means manufacturers have focused on technology such as fast charging as a compromise.

But Apple could go one better and allow wireless charging. Apple famously removed the iPhone 7's headphone jack, which meant users could not listen to wired headphones and charge their phone through the Lightning port at the same time. Removing the second part of that equation might make sense.
