iOS users are always on the waiting game every year since Apple has the tradition of releasing new iPhones every year. But 2017, which should mark the company's 10th year anniversary after introducing its consumers to touchscreen phones.

Apple has just released the latest iPhone 7 in September, and now, rumors are already spreading on how Apple will design the iPhone 8 which is expected to be released and available in 2017.

According to Business Insider, Apple is now testing more than 10 prototypes for new iPhones which may be released next year, and one of the prototypes is rumored to be having a curved screen. The news site explained that the phone will have OLED technology and will offer lower power consumption.

The report also added that most of the screens Apple is expected to be using for the iPhone 8 will be supplied by Samsung since Apple will need millions of OLED screens for the new phone.

Meanwhile, USA Today reports that Apple is not the first company that will produce a phone with curved screen display since Samsung has already adopted the feature for their Galaxy Note and S series.

Recent reports have shown that Apple's sales has been declining which should be a challenge for the company to make big changes and surprise its consumers next year in releasing the iPhone 8. Business Insider mentioned on their report that the iPhone to be released next year is expected to have a glass casing, offer wireless charging feature, and an edge-to-edge screen design.

On the other hand, other news sites like Time mentioned that other rumors spread that the iPhone 8 will come in three, instead of two variants: a 4.7 and 5.5 inch iPhones with flat screens, and one with a rounded display.
