One Apple employee’s disciplinary meeting is another man’s treasure. Thanks to newly-leaked information and images, the world has a better idea of what the iPhone 8 will be, with a rumoured release date of mid-September.

First off, it’s set to be Apple’s most expensive smartphone yet. No surprise there. Starting prices are rumoured to begin at approximately $1,100 (which is around £845) for a handset with a whopping 128GB of storage – though spend more, and you’ll be able to pick-up a 256GB version, too.

You can also say goodbye to the old screen. Taking cues from Samsung’s recent output, the iPhone 8 will feature a rounded bezel to all sides of the 5.8 inch OLED screen. This is to prevent any accidental inputs from wayward palms.

Plus, the 3.5mm headset jack definitely won’t be making a return – a sticking point for anyone that prefers their headphones tethered. You’ll have to settle for Apple’s ‘Lightning’ port instead: a wireless form of audio listening, unless you make a further investment in a fully-connected jack. Which, considering the asking price, seems a little unfair.

For now, the rest is rumour. There’s talk of a combined bottom speaker and amplified earpiece, a reappearance of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, an enlarged power button and a 3D camera – does the world really need 3D selfies? Again, all of these are yet to be confirmed.

Until September, you’ll have to sit tight with Apple’s leaky pipes.
