Apple’s forthcoming iPhone 8 will feature a vertical camera set-up, allowing it to work with virtual reality (VR) headsets.

That’s according to Japanese Apple site Mac Otakara, which is known for having good links with the company’s Asian supply chain.

It says that by making the camera vertical when held upright, Apple will be able to offer the required horizontal view for VR products.

It’s not yet clear whether Apple will launch its own VR headset to work with its new iPhone.

Elsewhere, the site claims that the iPhone 8, which it calls the iPhone Edition, will feature a similar stainless steel frame to the Apple Watch, with a glass rear panel.

This harks back to the classic design of the iPhone 4 and tallies with previous rumours.

Mac Otakara also says that the iPhone 8 will come with a flat screen, rather than a curved one in the style of Samsung’s Galaxy S8.

The iPhone 8 is due to hit shelves later this year, with an expected launch date in early September.
