But finally, it seems that Apple has managed to find out the solution if we believe that the schematics design is authentic.

Instead, the developers may go for the facial recognition for security access, which is looking a distant dream as of now. Geskin also stated that the iPhone 8 is going to feature long range wireless charging up to 5 metres and there will be a USB Type-C-to-Lightning cable inside the box.
