iPhone 8 rumours: what we want to see from Apple in 2018

The 7S will probably be first, but here's what we want to see the year after

There's little doubt that Apple will follow up the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7 Plus in 2017.

But what about the year after, in 2018? What do we think we'll see then? Here's a few ideas.

We'd like to see Apple make a big step forward with battery life in 2018.

It's not just about the size of the battery, of course - all the internal wiring plays a part in how long you can go between charges - so there are plenty of tweaks to be made. Apple's big advantage is it has full control over the hardware and the software of its devices and we'd like to see it push the limits of battery life even further.

Dual cameras in the normal iPhone

We reckon we might get a dual-camera setup in the standard iPhone in 2017, but if not, we want it in 2018. Every smartphone manufacturer is forging ahead with camera tech and we'll probably get dual cameras in smaller handsets way before 2018.

Wireless charging of course

If we don't get it with iPhone 7S, we need it in 2018. It's something that seems to be rumoured for the iPhone every cycle so let's hope Apple finally gets around to adding it - no doubt the designers inside the company could come up with a suitably sleek and attractive hub to put on the top of your desk.
