iPhone 8 home screen teased in mock-up photo


Apple’s plans for the iPhone 8 continue to crystallise with less than two weeks until the California company is expected to reveal its new device.

According to previous reports, the handset will feature a so–called floating dock, which will be used to unlock the phone and control multitasking. It will also purportedly allow user to close apps with an upward swipe.

Want more iPhone 8 news? We've collated all the speculation for our rumours round-up.

Today, we've been treated to a mock-up showing off exactly what the home screen of the iPhone 8 could look like.

The dock mimics that seen on an iPad running the updated iOS 11 platform, while at the top, the status bar is split either side of a cutout for the phone’s earpiece and front–facing camera.

The designs suggest Apple is working on a minor tweak to the style seen with iOS 10, but it also hints at how it plans to take advantage of the iPhone 8's design changes.

With no home button, Apple is said to be using the floating dock as a method of gesture control, with users able to swipe up to unlock their device, see which apps they have open and close any with a further swipe to the top of the device.

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 8 on 12th September.
