    If the mockups are a true interpretation of iPhone 8, where on earth are they going to put the clock? It has always been in the top center, but will now be covered by the camera. If they move it to the left or right it's going to look unbalanced. I also wonder how the apps are going to look now that the status bar isn't on top of the apps but separate in a black bar.

    Apps will start below the black bar. It's a virtual 'header/bezel' for normal use. I presume the background will only fill up the left/right corners on the lock screen, if anything.

    Then the size should be measured by useable screen real estate. If apps will only create their own border. Even if it's 5.8" OLED Apps will likely default to 5.5" same as the IPhone 7 Plus for compatablity sake. And Apple will claims its a feature they invented since OLED displays stay perfectly black in border areas.

    Can you compare it to the 7 Plus. I mean people really prefer the Plus size and if the IPhone Pro is No bigger than a 4.7" Phone

    Not sure how I feel about this. I'd prefer a smaller virtual button like on the pixel, but with an Apple logo. Now, that would be gorgeous. But a clock as a button, nah... I'd wish they'll find a way to make a dock like on iPad. Obviously in limited form, but still.

    I may be wrong but I think that lower virtual bezel will be used by apps, so the screen measurement should be taken from the lower most corner of the device to the upper corner where the top virtual bezel begins. I say 'should be', because I agree, it shouldn't really include the split status bar area, but 5.8" sounds good....marketing. Realistically, it should be 5.75" (can someone provide the actual measurement please)?

    The time on the virtual home button is nifty. Haven't seen that before.

    Then increase your adaptability parameter to 95%, TARS.

    The time will be in the center top of the display, as always. The left and right corners will be used for new status elements/dynamics. Not to hold the current status bar.

    The bottom of the device will be a black bar symmetrical to the top status bar. The black bar on the bottom is the Home Bar which has Home Button functionality and new dynamic functionally for taps etc.

    The main thing that we know is that most of the 'Features' will have existed, been used and enjoyed by users of other O.S.'s and yet claim that it's 'Innovative'

    Haha, so true. I do think they've stepped up their game with the iPad's iOS 11

    Maybe top-right, like on a Mac? Perhaps they'll remove the battery percentage to make room.

    I'm not really familiar with this American logic. Use something more universal...

    I'm an American and I'll translate it for you:


    Wait, nope, I can't, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    I highly doubt they would do this. If you start placing status indicators in those corners they will become exceedingly congested. Also, if you start eliminating status symbols then there's no reason for a status bar in the first place. I believe it will all remain in a single line directly under the cutout. New elements will take the corners.

    Another thing that should be considered is the fact that the lock screen can now go into landscape mode due to the fact that it is taking the place of Notification Center. Because it goes landscape, all of the status bar elements jump onto the left or right sides of the devices, and they are all on the colored background of your wallpaper. It would look extremely odd for them to jump from the corners to this extremely long side and use so little space.
