Apple iPhone Delay May Be Worth It, New Leaks Reveal
A lot of fans were disappointed when news recently came out pointing to a possible delay of the release of this year's iPhone. However, there may be a very good reason for the decision as Apple likely wants to meet its consumer's expectations; some of them at least.
According to a report from Forbes, Apple may be planning a major redesign with its upcoming flagship. This assumption is based on several leaks from reputable sources, who have now painted a consistent picture of what the iPhone 8 may be offering. Based on the leaks, the short delay may be well worth it for buyers as the end product may be able to meet a lot of expectations.
Two leaks coming from different sources, namely OnLeaks and newcomer Benjamin Geskin, have revealed what looks to be the final design for the upcoming special edition iPhone. The schematics for the device also confirms some of the previous rumors that have been circulating regarding the device's design changes.

Some of the design changes that the schematics have seemingly confirmed include the long-rumored vertically placed dual camera system, a front display without a home button, no headphone jack, and a wireless charging pad at the back panel.
Apple apparently has found a way to incorporate its Touch ID system and the front facing camera under the main display, but the implementation of the former may have been the cause for their decision to delay the release of the device. If they do pull it off, they would beat Samsung in doing so and it will likely make their device stand out from the rest of the flagships that are out in the market.
As for the wireless charging pad, previous reports have claimed that it will indeed be coming to the next iPhone. The CEO of Powermat, one of the biggest wireless power manufacturers in the world, also seemed to have slipped and confirmed this fact as he mentioned that the standard will indeed be coming to the next iPhone.
