All iPhone models in the future are expected to use Apple’s A11 chip. The iPhone 7 runs on the new A10 Fusion chip, but the iPhone 8 will utilize a newer version, probably the unannounced A11 processor. It will have a 3GB RAM in the 4.7-inch model and 4GB RAM in Plus / Pro which is far enough to handle high-end multitasking with iOS.
The iPhone 8 may feature an IP68 water resistance rating, an improvement over the IP67 certification earned by the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.The iPhone 8 might be able to withstand 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes while also offering full dust protection.

Apple will introduce an “improved” security system that will let customers unlock their iPhones and make Apple Pay payments with facial recognition instead of a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Apple’s 3D sensing facial recognition system is advanced and can unlock an iPhone within a few hundred milliseconds.
