“In the first 10 years of the Cook, iPhone set a benchmark for mobile computing,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, Tim. “We’re just getting started.”. The best product hasn’t come out yet.”
But since the first release of iPhone, the smartphone market has changed dramatically.
The Street said that over the years, iPhone has been Apple’s first quarter results for the rapid growth of the engine, including the 2015 fiscal year, a record $18 billion (about 119 billion 400 million yuan) profits, but the 2016 fiscal year second quarter, Apple’s revenue fell for the first time since 2003, arch-criminal is a slowdown in iPhone sales.

The Street says the following is a summary of the features included in iPhone 8:
1, larger size curved OLED display screen
This could be the most widespread rumor about iPhone 8: it might have a curved OLED display with a bigger size. The size of the iPhone 8 screen will grow from 4.7 inches of iPhone 7 to 5 inches, and the size of the iPhone 8 Plus screen will grow from 5.5 inches to 5.8 inches from iPhone 7 Plus.

While improving the display quality, showing darker black and more vivid colors, the OLED screen extends the battery life of the phone. The Wall Street Journal quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that Samsung would supply apple with a curved OLED display. According to Bloomberg’s latest report on iPhone 8, the initial sale of iPhone 8 will exclusively use Samsung’s OLED display because other manufacturers have insufficient capacity. Bloomberg said, so far, Apple has ordered about 100 million Samsung OLED display.
