    Some new stuff emerged on twitter this morning from Benjamin Geskin who claims that fingerprint reader will be on front and not back. If this is case then I am super happy as never felt right having on back on my android devices

    iPhone X (#iPhone8) with iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.

    Form is 100% confirmed.
    Touch ID in power button or display. (99% NOT on the back) https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/866574410794270722/photo/1

    This doesn't make it 100% confirmed unless Apple verifies. But it is interesting to see where these rumors lead for the questionable home button placement. This will easily be a front page article at some point today.

    I'm with you on this, it's not 100% for sure. Just seems as though there isn't a place on rear for fingerprint scanner in a lot of things that I have seen recently.

    If true, that long power button makes you wonder if it might be there, as the tweet suggests is a possibility. Seems too skinny though. Not sure how I feel about the idea....

    This seems to be de rigeur now with new phones and aspect ratio etc. I am quite happy to have a bigger screen inside a smaller frame as sometimes my plus model can be cumbersome. Just really hope they can fit a big enough battery and not go too slim on body

    imho releasing 3 new phones is a really dumb move

    I would have liked them just to have released the 8 only but that's not going to happen any more now.

    am i missing something? they have not released anything at the moment.
    moreover i clearly remember that in the video teaser of the ip7 Ive said that the design of the 7 was the perfected form of the 6 series, "the best iteration" or something like that.
    i don't think they will release 7s and an 8 all together.

    maybe they'll discontinue iPhone 6s, and then just keep "cheap" versions of the 7... thats why we see molds of those guys?

    But it's still conjecture until Apple announce it
