9to5 Mac, an Apple product news website, tweeted out images of three different potential iPhone 8 devices, including a black, silver and seemingly copper one. And all those features mean the iPhone 8 is going to have to be seriously good. To sort out the nonsense from the relatively likely, we've sifted through all the latest iPhone 8 rumours, and rounded up the ones you need to know about.

That said, there's a lot of iPhone 8-related information that's been surfacing. The current iPad Pro has a similar feature - it uses the MacBook's $49 29W USB-C power adapter for fast charging. But following this, the flagship iPhone 8, with its OLED screen and infrared sensor, will be in short supply until later in the year. Meanwhile, the latest speculation from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirms that the iPhone8 will indeed launch in September alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

Yield rates for Apple's specific panels are said to be at around 80% and 60% for 6-inch panels and 5.8-inch panels respectively.

Samsung Display, the sole display supplier for the OLED iPhone, had initially planned to start production for Apple in the first half of this year but had put off the schedule to July due to the delayed decision. If true, Apple might be expecting the iPhone 8 to eat into iPhone 7s Plus sales, then pushing the standard iPhone 7s to the lowest rung of the totem pole with the only LCD of the bunch.

By parsing the leaked code, he's discovered evidence of a home button on the iPhone 8 that resizes within a "periphery area", possibly located towards the bottom of the display.

Furthermore, the new iPhone 8 will also scrap out one of Apple's popular security feature, the Touch ID. Apparently the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the iPhone 8 (or whatever it may end up being called) is shown on these images. The staggered launch, they say, is because is still trying to sort out the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

"While this should be monitored as a potential negative for Apple, we think this is further posturing by Qualcomm in efforts to pressure Apple into reaching an out-of-court settlement to its separate royalty case", wrote Aaron Rakers, an analyst at Stifel.
