According to the rumor mill, the iPhone 8 will have an all-glass case. What could possibly go wrong there? I'm afraid to drop a regular phone with a case, not sure how well a glass phone would hold up to dropping.

We believe one of the reasons why new iPhones will switch from metal casing to glass casing is to support wireless charging. In order to ensure a superior performance, we believe it is most appropriate for EMS suppliers to develop and make the wireless charger because then a comprehensive test can be conducted. As Hon Hai needs to deploy most resources to develop and produce OLED iPhone, we expect Pegatron will be the exclusive supplier of the wireless charger.
