The latest purported iPhone 8 components leak appears to show the handset’s display assembly, flex cables for power transfer, and part of the Lightning connector.

The new component leaks appear to confirm previous reports about the form factor of the new iPhone 8 display. Check out the other two pics below.

In a major refresh to mark a decade of the iPhone, Apple will supposedly ditch the Home button for the iPhone 8 (and maybe the Touch ID sensor along with it). Instead, the 10th anniversary iPhone will pack an edge-to-edge display with minimal visible bezel. This will house a superior OLED display, being manufactured by Samsung.

Although Apple has yet to announce a date, we expect an iPhone 8 event next month. And, just like every year, that means more prerelease iPhone parts are showing up online.

Previous component leaks have appeared to “confirm” another of the iPhone 8’s big features: wireless charging. Last week, we also got our first glimpse at the A11 chip that will power the next-gen handset.

In addition to the iPhone 8, Apple will also reportedly be releasing an iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. These devices will reportedly offer slight upgrades on the existing iPhone lineup, without the major redesign of the iPhone 8.

With less than a month to go until the new iPhones, which model (if any) are you planning to get? Do you think Apple has done enough in terms of innovation to justify this being the 10th anniversary iPhone? Leave your comments below.
