By now we have come across a gazillion leaks and renders of Apple iPhone 8, but the latest renders is exactly what we would expect from a tenth anniversary edition of the iPhone.

In reports that came out few months ago, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the bottom portion of the device will consist of a function area that will dynamically provide users with pertinent controls based on a given app environment, similar perhaps to what Apple implemented with the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro.

Now turning those words into a vision, this render illustrates what the function area could be like. According to the images, the bezel below the display includes the space where the embedded Touch ID sensor sits. But what s different is that it also includes the call controls, shortcuts for apple music, image editing shortcuts, and content sharing control.
Essentially, with the iPhone 8 display essentially consisting of one giant piece of glass, this reimagined piece of screen at the bottom is going to be substantial. In fact, quite a number of leaks have indicated that the iPhone 8 display will be about the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus display, albeit in the form factor of an iPhone 7.
Considering the hype around the anniversary edition iPhone 8, this new design, which would also be one of the biggest refresh cycle we ve ever seen, only seems fair. In fact, the excitement surrounding the impending iPhone 8 is so great that just last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook has blamed the various iPhone 8 leaks bruising the sales of iPhone 7. We re seeing what we believe to be a pause in purchases on iPhone, which we believe are due to the earlier and much more frequent reports about future iPhones, he said.
