iPhone 8 Part of the same software dump from Apple may have leaked details on the size of the upcoming iPhone 8's screen. Forbes notes that the new screen could be the largest on an iPhone to date. The new information came again from Steve Troughton-Smith, who tweeted out the metrics.

The iPhone 7, while a beautiful smartphone, left many Apple users unimpressed. Also expected with a new iPhone 8 launch this year would be newer iterations of the iPhone 7 with a iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
