Forget about the iPhone 7. Get it out of your head. The real game-changer might be the iPhone 8, reportedly due next year. As the first generation iPhone first shook up the industry back in 2007, the release of the iPhone 8 will strategically align with the beloved device's 10th anniversary. According to an Apple patent spotted by Salon, previous rumors of an all-glass iPhone are starting to sound a lot more plausible.

"An electronic device may be provided that has a flexible display with bent edges," the patent states. "Bent edges of the flexible display may be visible along a sidewall or edge of the electronic device." As noted by Salon, the patent hints that the iPhone 8 (not, interestingly enough, the iPhone 7s) may have a "damage-resistant glass face" on one or both edges. Furthermore, the physical buttons on the device may be replaced with digital ones that shift their functionality depending on what exactly the user is doing on the device.
