The stream of iPhone 8 related leaks seems to be continuous because it wasn’t too long ago that a dummy unit that is allegedly based on the iPhone 8 surfaced online. Now thanks to newly leaked schematics posted by Benjamin Geskin reveals some additional details about the phone, or rather it seems to “confirm” them.
As you can see in the schematic above, it allegedly shows the iPhone 8 and some of its components. While it’s hard to tell what the actual phone looks like based on the drawings, it does confirm how with the iPhone 8, Apple could be trying for a new dual camera orientation where instead of the lenses placed side by side, they’re stacked vertically.

Apparently this has to do with some AR/VR feature that the phone will be capable of, although we can’t say for sure. Also interestingly enough the schematics don’t show the rear-facing Touch ID cutout which may or may not be good news for some of you. There has been some debate about whether or not the rear-facing Touch ID was a good idea, but so far this is the second time we’re seeing it without.
Apple is rumored to be working on an under-screen Touch ID, although earlier leaks have suggested that maybe Apple couldn’t get it to work in time and might resort to putting Touch ID on the back. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully we’ll have more details to share in the near future.
