It’s that time of year again. Summer is in full swing, the weather is nice, and iPhone leaks start to roll out in droves. This latest leak is a bit more than just a render though. It appears we may be getting our first look at the upcoming iPhone 8 from Apple. Noted leaker OnLeaks published a few images on his Twitter feed a few short hours ago, and the design appears to be the final look for Apple’s upcoming device.
