iPhone 8 leaks could deflate Apple's looming launch

APPLE'S biggest launch of the year might be its least surprising after many of the famously secretive company's creations appear to have leaked ahead of this week's event.

The technology giant is scheduled to unveil three improved and redesigned smartphones at its new Apple Park campus on Wednesday, in a move analysts predicted would send Australian phone sales soaring.

But a new leak appears to confirm the shape of one of the new handsets, while a final copy of Apple's new smartphone software revealed the top model's name, a new security addition, and two previously unknown new features.

Cases from accessories brand Pelican, obtained by News Corp, indicate one of the phones will feature a slightly wider, noticeably longer body than the iPhone 7, and confirmed the iPhone's two cameras would now be positioned vertically.
