Ew, you're still using an iPhone 7? How quaint.

Despite being just eight weeks old, the iPhone 7 is already old hat, as rumors of the iPhone 8 have already begun to surface. A report from the Nikkei Asian Review says that tests at Foxconn, the infamous iPhone production plant, have started. After all, the iPhone 7 is really old and can barely even function anymore.

Let's breeze past the obvious new features of the iPhone 8. It will likely be the thinnest, lightest, and fastest iPhone ever, with the best camera ever put in an iPhone. Cool. Where's the good stuff?

"Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn Technology Group, is making wireless charging modules," says Nikkei. Finally, wireless charging, and to think, the iPhone 7 (remember that thing?) still uses a wire.

The addition of wireless charging should please iPhone 7 users. If you can recall, about 60 days ago, Apple took a “courageous” step and removed headphone jacks from their phones, leaving just one port to charge the battery and listen to music. But who can even remember such things? It was so long ago.

One thing's for sure, these are all unconfirmed rumors, and we have no idea when the next iPhone will actually be released. In the meantime, you'll just have to stick it out with your decrepit iPhone 7. Afterall, maybe 2017 will be the year we finally get the Transformer iPhone.
