iPhone 8 Release Date, Latest News & Update: Next Apple Flagship Coming With Stylus? Pressure On For Samsung Galaxy Note 8!
Apple is expected to take advantage of the turmoil Samsung finds itself in, thanks largely to the debacle the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 brought. Could this happen with the iPhone 8?
This could be possible if the word out is true that Apple has plans to inject a stylus into the iPhone 8 (or iPhone 7s). Thanks to a new spotted patent application, it seems the Cupertino company is expanding possibilities for its Apple Pencil. Such was spotted at the USPTO patent application 20160364091 under Devices and Methods for Manipulating User Interfaces with a Stylus, Patently Apple reported.
The goal is to obviously add more interface options with the next Apple iPhone though all should be taken with a grain of salt for now. It seems nothing more than adding flavor to Apple devices, covering text messaging and even gaming. But before getting all excited, it would be best to note that this is not a certainty at least for now.
There are plenty of possibilities but if true, it seems like a direct swipe at Samsung. There is no certainty though the Korean giant is expected to come out with a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as scheduled.
For Apple, it may not be the direct intent but broadening the use of the Apple Pencil is logical, BGR.com reported. It will likely be integrated with the iPhone 8 Plus, Apple’s phablet edition that could welcome the addition of a stylus.
Samsung is busy mapping out its road to redemption as they try to clear the air of a messy situation courtesy of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. All that is expected to start with the Samsung Galaxy S8, a task that seems daunting.
However, Apple needs to factor in the big Samsung mistake. And this involves stuffing mobile devices with too many features which batteries are unable to handle. As most know, this is what led to the downfall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
