Leaked images show glass backs for iPhone 7, 7s and 8; claim all will have wireless charging

A pair of leaked images posted on Reddit show what the poster claims to be the black glass backs of an iPhone 7, 7s and 8 along with the front screen for the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 back is a similar size to the iPhone 7, but features the vertical dual camera cutout seen in previous leaks. The front glass for the iPhone 8 is also in line with current rumors, with a much narrower bezel all along the edges and a small top cutout for the camera and speaker. The poster claims the photo came from a “friend in the industry,” saying Chinese manufacturers got the components in last week and have confirmed that all three models are going to feature wireless charging. The back of the iPhone 8 also features a series of markings that raised some red flags from commenters, but are actually in line with regulatory requirements of countries like Canada. One thing the back of the iPhone 8 lacks is a Touch ID sensor, casting doubt on previous leaks that showed a back cutout for that component and lending more credibility to rumors that Apple has devised a way to put the scanner under the screen.
