People are buzzing about the iPhone 8. What will it look like? What will the new features be? Is the headphone jack coming back? (Probably not.) Well, McDonald's may have inadvertently answered some of those questions.
In a promotional email sent to Australian customers, McDonald's unveiled their new mymacca's mobile app. The only problem was that the phone McDonald's used to demonstrate the app turned more than a few heads.
According to various predictions, a display that goes all the way to the top of the phone is something experts think will be a new feature in the iPhone 8, with front-facing sensors that may be able to scan a person's face, ultimately doing away with fingerprint scans to unlock the phone.
A spokesperson for McDonald's Australia attempted to shut down any rumors about the phone, saying, "We created a mock-up of a phone screen to showcase the functionality of our mymacca’s mobile ordering app. Any similarity to any other design is purely coincidental."
Looks more like a designer creating some screens for the app using an iPhone 8 template that was created based on leaks.— Georges Raad (@Yorgi_) August 18, 2017

As for the final design, we'll have to wait until Apple releases the iPhone 8, currently slated to debut at the end of the year.
