In a slip of tongue, Wistron chief suggests that Apple's iPhone 8 will support wireless charging

The 5.5 inch iPhone 8 will be supported by iOS 11, the new operating software which was teased this year at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.

Marking the tenth anniversary of iPhone this year, Apple is expected to come up with iPhone 8 which is easily one of the most awaited models of the iPhone; and adding to the pre-existing hype, iPhone 8 is rumoured to be waterproof with wireless charging.

According to reports, the leak came out during a shareholders meeting where Wistron's chief executive, Robert Hwang, said,"[The] assembly process for the previous generations of [iPhones] have not changed much, though new features like waterproof and wireless charging now require some different testing, and waterproof function will alter the assembly process a bit." However, no official confirmation has come from Apple Inc. Wistron is known to be Apple's iPhone assembler. In India, Wistron set up shop in Bengaluru and assembles the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE models.

The 5.5-inch iPhone 8 will be supported by iOS 11, the new operating software which was teased this year at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.  If iPhone 8 does support wireless charging, it will join a select group of phones that support the feature. According to reports, a 3D facial recognition mechanism will also be a part of this new phone. According to the The Korea Herald, LG Innotek, which is a part of the LG Group, will supply the camera modules. A 3D facial recognition unlike its 2D cousin would be more reliable and provide a higher security.
