The Apple iPhone 8 could be bigger and thicker than the current iPhone 7
Apple’s iPhone 8 release date is still months away but the rumours continue to come thick and fast.
We’re expecting the US technology giant to lift the lid on the new iPhone 8 at a major event in September with rumours suggesting it will feature a giant edge-to-edge display.
The new iPhone 8 is also likely to include a faster processor and dual cameras with support for augmented reality.
Now a new report from iDrop has revealed more about the size and dimensions of the new smartphone and it appears the iPhone could be bigger than the current iPhone 7.
The report, which claims to have come from “factory workers with intimate knowledge” of Apple’s next smartphone, claims that the iPhone 8 will measure in at 143.59 x 70.94 x 7.57 mm.

Apple’s current iPhone 7 measures in at 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm, meaning the iPhone 8 could be quite a bit bigger and slightly thicker.
However, if the rumours are true the new iPhone would actually be smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus and could feature a display which is actually larger.
This is due to Apple’s rumoured AMOLED edge-to-edge display.
Although there’s still months to wait for this announcement, Apple will have some big news coming later today.
The major event usually sees Apple unveil its latest iPhone, Mac and Watch software updates but this year could also see some new products taking to the stage in San Jose.

Rumours are rife that Apple is planning to launch its first ever smart speaker.
Along with the new speaker it’s also thought new iPad Pro tablets could be revealed at WWDC.
A recent leaked image has given a glimpse of a new 10.5-inch iPad with thinner bezels – meaning a much bigger screen can be squeezed into its aluminium shell.
A brighter display, faster processor and improved Apple Pencil experience are all expected and Apple may even upgrade their hugely popular keyboard case which transforms the tablet into a mini laptop.
Finally it also appears that some new MacBooks could be coming soon.
Apple recently updated its MacBook Pro range which now includes a bigger trackpad and new Touch Bar.
However, many experts believe these machines could get another boost with faster processors and improved battery life.
Apple’s iMac range is also in desperate need of a refresh and this popular desktop computer could be in for some changes at WWDC.
