What We’d Like to See in the New iPhone

Everyone is starting to get excited about the new phones coming later this year. 2017 is going to be a great year for the smartphone.  Especially with the new, impressive features coming to Apple’s flagship device.  Some of it’s features, like OLED displays, are going to be groundbreaking if the rumors are true.  Wireless charging, another great feature, has made it to Android devices but has yet to be featured on any iPhone models.  Along with wireless charging, there are a number of features that iPhone users are hoping will be included in the next version of their favorite device. From OLED displays, to a better camera to an all-glass body, these features have people excited for what’s to come.

The iPhone 8


Whether this phone ends up being called the iPhone 8, iPhone X, or something completely different, it’s bound to be the next great smart phone.  It’s been 10 years since Apple released their first iPhone, and they’re going to make this one extra special. That’s why so many people are excited about the features that may be included.  Here are a few of the rumored features that have people the most excited.

All Glass

One of the possible new features of the iPhone 8 could be that the phone is entirely made of up of glass. This may be the reason why many people held off on getting the iPhone 7 or the 7 Plus. Having an all glass phone could also mean that wireless charging is coming to the iPhone.  Mainly because glass is a better conductor than the material that the current iPhones are made of.

Wireless Charging

Samsung has already released a phone that is capable of wireless charging, so at the moment, Apple is a little behind in this category.  They do have the Apple Watch, which has wireless charging capabilities, so it’s not like they don’t have the technology.  It’s likely that this will be one of the features introduced in the new iPhone when it’s finally released. This would make it much easier for people to charge their phones and not have to worry charging cables any longer.

Regardless of it’s physical changes, nothing is more important to the new iPhone than it’s app library.  And in my own experience, it’s crucial to have some sort of monitoring software on your phone.  For instance, if you happen to lose your phone, crack the screen, or have it stolen (all of which have happened to me over the past 10 years) you can recover all of your lost data.  Even if you accidentally delete an important text or email you can retrieve it with this software.  Another great feature of this software is the ability to monitor another persons device as well.  This way you can ensure that your teenager is acting responsibly on their smart phone.  If you’d like to know more about this software, click here for a DDI utilities review.


No matter what changes they make, the new iPhone being released this year will probably be one of the most popular smartphones of 2017.  There are a lot of other great smartphones on the market today, but Apple seems to have a tight grip on the industry.  Don’t sleep on them this year!
