A note was obtained by MacRumors from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo where he mentioned the iPhone 8 will use a more expensive stacked logic board design to allow Apple to use a 2,700mAh battery (comparable to the 5.5″ Plus models) in a 4.7″ form factor.
The stacked logic board design creates more space inside the iPhone, allowing Apple to fit a higher capacity battery in the same space as the previous iPhones.

EA owned mobile games developer, Gameloft, has developed a reputation for making free mobile games with impressive graphics and limitless content. Known for popular titles such as Modern Combat and Dungeon Hunter, Gameloft has now released a sequel to their most popular game, Asphalt 8. What you will immediately notice about Asphalt Xtreme is that it is very different to its predecessors in terms of the theme. Gone are the days of driving ground-hugging supercars through the city streets.

According to Apple this could potentially lead to hackers finding the backdoor and compromising users’ security.
The US government’s initiative was proposed to Apple after the San Bernardino terrorism incident in December when Apple cooperated with the FBI providing them with data and information to resolve the case. As Apple noted, the FBI, instead of asking Congress to pass legislation resolving the encryption fight, has proposed what appears to be a [...]
