New iPhone 8 Dummy Video Surfaces as Third-Party Companies Start Developing Clones

Originally From https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/24/iphone-8-dummy-video-and-clones/ Though we’re only four months away from the presumed launch of the “iPhone 8,” we haven’t seen any part leaks for the much-rumored OLED device nor have we seen parts for the two standard LCD iPhones that are said to accompany it.
<br/>

<br/>
With a lack of part leaks, we’re relying on dummy units, design drawings, and design renders to give us an idea of what to expect from the device, and there’s been no shortage of those leaks, many of which are somewhat confusing due to the fact that Apple tested several iPhone 8 prototypes.
<br/>

<br/>
This week, the first hands-on video featuring an alleged iPhone 8 dummy model surfaced. We already saw the dummy model in question <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/2017/04/24/dummy-iphone-8-images-edge-to-edge-display/”>in photographs</a> back in April, but the video provides a better look at the device, and perhaps a better picture of what the iPhone 8 might look like if accurate.

<br/>
This particular dummy device, said to be a CNC model, aligns with <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/10/iphone-8-cad-renders-images/”>design drawings</a> and rumors pointing towards an edge-to-edge display with a glass body encased in a shiny stainless steel frame. There is no Home button and no visible <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/touch-id/”>Touch ID</a> sensor, suggesting it is built into the display, which would be in line with many rumors.
<br/>

<br/>
It features a dual-lens rear camera in a vertical orientation and it lacks an Apple logo, so it’s not entirely clear if this is representative of the final design Apple settled on, but it does match up with a lot of the rumors we’ve heard. Alleged iPhone 8 design drawings and schematics that resemble this dummy suggest the iPhone will be thicker than the current <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/iphone-7/”>iPhone 7</a> and iPhone 7 Plus.
<br/>

<br/>
The dummy device in the video above represents one set of design drawings we’ve seen, but there’s also a second set of design images that have circulated featuring an iPhone with an aluminum body and a rear Touch ID button underneath the Apple logo. The device with a rear Touch ID button is said to be one of the prototypes Apple tested as a fallback should an under-display Touch ID solution not pan out.
<br/>

<br/>
Rumors and leaks seem to be coalescing around the first iPhone 8 design without a rear Touch ID sensor, suggesting the images with the back Touch ID button are based on an outdated design that was perhaps scrapped. That it appears unlikely this design will be used in the iPhone 8 hasn’t stopped one China-based company from creating an iPhone 8 clone based on the schematics and design drawings that have been circulating.
<br/>

<br/>
Leaker Benjamin Geskin this morning <a href=”https://twitter.com/VenyaGeskin1/status/867414858572206080″>shared images</a> of what he says is an iPhone 8 clone that was designed based on an early iPhone 8 prototype model. It features a front display with slim bezels, a vertical camera, an aluminum body in multiple colors, and a rear Touch ID sensor.

<br/>
As a clone, this is not representative of what the real iPhone 8 will look like, but it provides an interesting glimpse at prototype design and what an iPhone with a rear Touch ID sensor might resemble.

<br/>
With multiple prototypes in testing, the actual design of the iPhone 8 will remain unconfirmed and up in the air until we start to see legitimate part leaks. In past years, part leaks have started earlier than May, and their absence may suggest that Apple still has not settled on a finalized design.

Sphero Launches $300 iPhone-Controlled Lightning McQueen From Disney/Pixar’s Cars

Originally From https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/24/sphero-lightning-mcqueen-cars/ Continuing its <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/2015/09/03/sphero-bb8-star-wars/”>partnership with Disney</a>, Sphero today revealed its newest iPhone-controlled toy, this time themed after the Disney/Pixar <em>Cars</em> character Lightning McQueen. Sphero calls him the “<a href=”http://www.sphero.com/pixar/lmq”>Ultimate Lightning McQueen</a>,” letting users drive Lightning remotely via Bluetooth by using an iOS or Android application.
<br/>

<br/>
<img src=”http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2017/05/sphero-lightning-mcqueen.jpg” alt=”” width=”1200″ height=”658″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-567052″ />
<br/>
Lightning himself has authentic movement and animations which Sphero calls “emotive suspension,” which allows Lightning to perform movie-accurate animations beyond simply driving around. According to <a href=”https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/24/sphero-ultimate-lightning-mcqueen/”><em>TechCrunch</em></a>, which spoke to Sphero about the launch, “his left and right sides also twitch up and down with excitement, and he’ll speak and move in response to taps on his roof, hood and doors.”
<br/>

<br/>
There’s a full LCD display on Lightning’s windshield that animates the character’s eyes, and an animatronic mouth that moves as he talks. During playtime, users can drive Lightning away from them up to 100 feet, and one charge will last around 40 minutes.
<br/>

<br/>
<center><iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/GmCvRVt8ROo” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe></center>
<br/>
Sphero worked closley with Pixar creative director Jay Ward and supervising animator Bobby Podesta, to ensure Lightning’s personality and look was as close as possible to his representation in the movies.
<br/>
<blockquote>”As our partnership with Disney has evolved, we’ve been able to start to look at further properties within the Disney portfolio,” explained Product Manager Jenica Watts. “One of the teams had the opportunity to build an amazing, lifelike Lightning McQueen.”
<br/>

<br/>
This was all supervised by Pixar’s Jay Ward, who’s creative director for the Cars franchise, with advice from Bobby Podesta, supervising animator on Cars 3. The end result is that Ultimate Lightning McQueen has a real sense of personality — enough so that after we’d been charging him for a few minutes in the corner of the TechCrunch New York office, we had to put him to sleep because of his constant demands for attention.</blockquote> In the iOS app, users will be able to drive Lightning around at speeds of up to 6 mph, with controls enabling reverse and drifting options. The app will allow users to directly interact with Lightning as well, with Sphero saying that there are “more than 150 animations for Lightning to perform.”
<br/>

<br/>
Users will be able to string together various animations and voice lines into scripts with an “acting studio,” creating their own miniature <em>Cars</em> storylines. He’ll even offer his own commentary when a <em>Cars</em> movie is playing, thanks to an included microphone that will pick up the film’s audio. The launch of Ultimate Lightning McQueen coincides with the upcoming release of <em>Cars 3</em> in June.

T-Mobile Will Pay Off Your iPhone If You Switch From Verizon

Originally From https://www.macrumors.com/2017/05/24/tmobile-will-pay-off-verizon-iphones/ T-Mobile today introduced a <a href=”https://newsroom.t-mobile.com/news-and-blogs/get-out-of-the-red.htm”>limited time promotion</a> to encourage Verizon customers with select iPhone models to switch to their network.

<br/>
Starting May 31, when a Verizon customer with an <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/iphone-7/”>iPhone 7</a>, iPhone 7 Plus, <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/iphone-6s/”>iPhone 6s</a>, iPhone 6s Plus, or <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/iphone-se/”>iPhone SE</a> brings their smartphone to T-Mobile, they’ll be able to keep the device, and have any remaining monthly payments owing towards it paid off in full, whether it’s $1 or $1,000.
<br/>

<br/>
The catch is that Verizon customers will be required to pay $15 per month for T-Mobile’s <a href=”https://uncarrier.t-mobile.com/premium-device-protection-plans”>Premium Device Protection Plus</a> insurance program in addition to their new T-Mobile ONE plan. The insurance program protects an iPhone from loss, theft, and accidental damage, and provides <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/applecare/”>AppleCare</a>+ perks.
<br/>

<br/>
The offer will be available at T-Mobile stores across the United States next week. T-Mobile says the balance of any remaining device payments will be provided in the form of a digital prepaid MasterCard in approximately 15 to 30 days.<br/><br/><div class=”linkback”>Tags: <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/t-mobile/”>T-Mobile</a>, <a href=”https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/verizon/”>Verizon</a> </div><br/><a href=”https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/tmobile-will-pay-off-verizon-iphones.2047013/”>Discuss this article</a> in our forums<br/><br/><div class=”feedflare”>
