Apple finally sent out invites to its September 12 event on
Thursday, and all signs are pointing to a completely redesigned
iPhone that many are calling the “iPhone 8.”

The phone is expected to look something like the phone on the
right below:

Mind you, that phone isn’t the real deal. Instead, it’s a mock-up
based on the iPhone 8’s rumored design, which is supposed to
include an edge-to-edge OLED display, a redesigned camera system
on its front, and other features. It’s also supposed to have an
awkward-looking “notch” on its top that will house the phone’s
front cameras and sensors. 

If that mock-up is anything like what Apple will unveil on
September 12, you’ll have to buy one that’s colored black to hide
that goofy notch. 

The iPhone 7 provides a pretty good idea of what to expect from
the new phone. When the current iPhone is turned off and sitting
on a flat surface, it just looks like one seamless slab of glass.
That’s what many say the iPhone 8 will look like as well.

Assuming Apple sells the iPhone 8 in the current iPhone colors —
matte black, jet black, silver, gold, and rose gold — I would
recommend the two former colors as opposed to the three latter
ones, all of which normally come with white faceplates.
Personally, I always prefer the darker metal colors, as they make
the phone look sleeker. But more importantly, they come with a
black faceplate that blends in with the glass display, which
makes for a better cinematic experience.

In the case of the iPhone 8 — especially with this “notch” at the
top of the phone — the darker metal colors with their black
faceplates are likely to be the only ones that help disguise that
silly looking notch.

Of course, this is all conjecture since we’re dealing with rumors
and concepts. If Apple unveils an iPhone 8 that’s completely
unlike what’s been rumored, you can ignore this advice.

But at this point, I’m inclined to trust the rumors, considering
how many of the biggest leaks have come from within Apple
(including the iPhone 8’s design, notch included,
leaking via Apple’s HomePod code
). So let’s hope Apple makes
an iPhone color dark enough to hide that notch.
