Prior to the release of the latest iPhone 8, lots of gossip had been circulating here and there. Rumors about its specs and its design came out almost two months before the launch of the phone and surprisingly, most of them have been true.

Named as the ‘iPhone X’, the company’s 10th anniversary flagship phone has also been released along with a number of other products at the Apple Keynote Event.
