Shcoking Rumors about Upcoming iPhone 8 That You Didn’t Know

Shcoking Rumors about Upcoming iPhone 8 That You Didn’t Know

With Apple’s 10th anniversary of the iPhone approaching, Apple is expected to release a new addition on the occasion. The date is speculated to be around September 2017. This phone could be radically different from its successors. It is expected to be a technology sensation, as Apple might mix things around a little bit to give us a new innovation.

Features

This iPhone 8 infographic will provide you with a better understanding of what we are talking about here. If the rumours are to be trusted, this phone will have the following features:

  • Glass Body
  • OLED display
  • Edge-to-Edge display
  • Efficient A11 processor
  • Display integrated Touch ID and Camera
  • Wireless charging

As the LCD display is being replaced with OLED which will be an edge-to-edge display, there will be no place left for the home button. So, the home button is expected to be on screen.

Design

Just like the iPhone 4, the iPhone 8 is speculated to return with an all-glass design. The phone might adorn a full glass front and back.

The entire glass body design[1] is speculated to be packed with new cutting edge technology and features. Hence, the new edition of the iPhone will be much more costly.

But, if rumours are to be trusted, this will all be completely worth it. Being aware of all the specifications beforehand will enable you to make a decision and grab an iPhone 8 beforehand.

Reportedly, Samsung was successful in seizing a contract of manufacturing 100 million OLED screens for Apple.[2] The Korean Herald got this tip recently. The display panels are expected to be 5.5 and 4.5 inches.

The 4.5-inch screens could be standard or OLED; it is still unclear. Meaning you are most likely to get a size option.

Display

The no-bezel, edge-to-edge display[3] will also incorporate a touch identification and front camera. Apple already holds a patent for an in-display fingerprint scanning sensor. They are likely to use this technology soon. On the other hand, the main primary camera is speculated to adorn a 3D camera. This will enable the iPhone 8 users to identify real world objects by using augmented reality expertise.

More Features

The A11 processor that will be used in the rumoured iPhone 8 is going to be much more energy efficient, faster and smaller.

An analyst from Barclay’s speculates that this new Apple product will have wireless charging. If we were to believe in this prediction, you will get a wire-free product in the real sense.

Although the overall weight and thickness are expected to reduce, there might not be a storage card slot. The absence of a memory card might be a problem for some.

3 Variants

As always, Apple is expected to release 3 variants: 32GB, 64GB, and 128 GB. The iPhone 8 is speculated to be introduced with a 4GB RAM.

Cost

There have been many rumours circling around in speculation of the iPhone 8 and its release date. The price is expected to be much higher than the previous iPhone 7.

But, there will be a less costly version.

Late or no release for iPhone 7s

Now, if you did not buy the iPhone 7, thinking you will buy the iPhone 7s, there could be disappointment in-store for you. In lieu of the early expected release date of iPhone 8, Apple might not roll out the iPhone 7s, as they will be looking forward to releasing the iPhone 8 in September, leaving very less time in between.

Final Thoughts

The instruction of iPhone 7 was huge and built around a greatly successful launch.

The iPhone 8 might most certainly witness a bigger and better one.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
