According to the Wall Street Journal, the company is expected to release three new devices - iPhone 8 along with the updated versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus - that will be called iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus.

One of the features that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is rumored to be bringing to its upcoming iPhones, which are reportedly set to be unveiled to the public in about two weeks, is so-called "wireless charging". No button means no more TouchID, but the company's using facial recognition technology to replace the identity verification and purchasing tool - more on that below.

Earlier leaks have suggested design changes in detail. However, it has been unclear how the iPhone 8 would work with the loss of the home button.

Apple has made September its new iPhone launch month annually since it rolled out the iPhone 5 back in 2012. Apple's in a bit of a rut, after sales of the smartphone haven't been what they used to be. Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Monday.

Distrib Films, meanwhile, earned $582,300 on 386 screens for their post-converted 3D re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day . Lionsgate's The Hitman's Bodyguard led all films for the second weekend in a row with just over $10 million in ticket sales.

The New York Times recently posted a report which thoroughly examined every iPhone reveal in the past ten years and came to the conclusion that iPhone 8 will cost somewhere around $999. It's a pressure-sensitive sensor with a "taptic engine" that simulates the feeling of a pushed button. Swiping up again goes back to the home screen.

Rene Ritchie, analyst with iMore, recently penned an article in which he explained why the iPhone now doesn't support the Apple Pencil although "Apple has no doubt tested Pencil technology on iPhone". The cutout is noticeable during app usage in the middle of the very top of the screen, where the status bar (the area that shows cellular reception, the time, and battery life) would normally be placed, according to the images.

'Apple has ordered 70 million units of OLED panels from Samsung this year, while Samsung is preparing to churn out as many as 95 million for Apple in 2017, in case demand exceeds expectations, ' David Hsieh of HSI Markit.

The iPhone 8 will look similar to our imagining of the iPhone in 2020, with a virtually bezel-less screen.

In other words, this iPhone launch, which some analysts could fetch as much as $1,200 or even as much as $1,400, is expected to be more than just Apple's typical incremental hardware upgrade. So many people will be keeping a close eye.
