One odd bit from Kuo was that he seemed to indicate that although Apple would take advantage of the faster power delivery spec of USB-C, it may not be able to get the data transmission speed upgrade if the iPhone itself still has a Lightning jack.
The update is also Apple's first move into super-detailed OLED screens, which are able to show off higher resolutions and more attribute than the LCD displays now used in previous iPhone devices.
There are a variety of reasons I believe this, chief among them: compatibility with existing products and Lightning's relatively recent arrival as a replacement for the old 30-pin connector.
The tenth anniversary iPhone and the likely 7s accompaniments are expected to arrive in September 2017. In this manner, the revenue generator through this avenue is not going to stop overflowing and consumers will not have to switch to a brand new cable with the upcoming iPhone 8. In order to safely provide fast charging on the iPhone 8, Kuo expects Apple to TI's power management offerings and Cypress' Power Delivery chips.

Yes, in an interview with film critic Rajeev Masand said, "maybe Shah Rukh Khan could play it". He did not want to be just the tough Wolverine, but the hard Logan.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the iPhone 8 will come in three models, two of which will use traditional LCD displays and one of which will use an OLED screen. It will have the same type of connector on Mac and other iOS devices.
According to Kuo, Apple will keep its proprietary Lightning port too but utilize it for its Lightning accessories, particularly for the MFi Program licensing.
Apple faced outrage a year ago after dropping the headphone cable on iPhone 7 - but users have largely adapted to the change. This could mean that Apple will no longer use its own type of connection cable for the next-generation iPhone smartphones. However, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo refutes this claim. The popular rumor making the rounds is that there will be 4.7-inch, 5.5-inch and 5.8-inch iPhone. Kuo says, with the new iPhone 8 of display size 5.8 inches, the available area is will be 5.15 inches.
