Apple prepares to reveal the future iPhone 7 eagerly awaited by millions of fans. However, as the corridor noises of the past few months have mentioned, we should not expect big changes for this new smartphone. For this, we will have to wait for the arrival of the iPhone 8 (or 7S) of 2017, which would be the bearer of important innovations in order to mark the 10th anniversary of the Apple phone.

apple patent interactive curved screen - iPhone 7S / 8: Apple files a patent for interactive curved screenIt could be that a patent deposited by the firm with the apple in 2014 and freshly renewed by an application is related to this iPhone 7S or iPhone 8. Indeed, this one describes a curved interactive screen similar to that present on the declensions “Edge” of the Samsung Galaxy S range. The Californian brand has not used it so far, but there is a good chance that we will hear about this technology from next year, with the arrival of the iPhone in 2017. All the more more than it is gradually confirmed that Apple will turn to OLED screens.

For the moment, we know of course very little about this “revolutionary” iPhone 8 / 7S. However, according to various rumors, it is said that it would benefit from a whole new design and the curved screen should be there for something. We also know that this future iPhone could be equipped with an A11 chip (read: iPhone 7S / 8 of 2017: an A11 processor is already in development), but nothing is sure yet.
