    So with how much pretty much all phones gets leaked anymore, it kind of takes the fun out of the new devices. Miss the old days where you literally had almost no clue what was going to be launched and not knowing pretty much 99% of what the device is weeks/months before it is launched.

    I agree, but somehow it still seem to garner excitement/anticipation for certain people.

    Luckily there are always so many fake leaks that it’s hard to tell what’s legit. For instance, there are credible rumors supporting TouchID built into the iPhone 8 display, TouchID on the back of the device, and no TouchID whatsoever. Still, at least one of the leaks will inevitably end up looking exactly like the production model and at least one analyst will sift through Apple’s supply chain with enough accuracy to ruin the surprise.

    It does and it doesn't. I like seeing the leaks. I am impatient and this helps me haha, but it also makes it even better when they finally do manage to surprise you. Unfortunately the iPhone 8 rumors all seem to be leading more and more to being a let down, at least to me.

    No one knows what will be included on the tenth anniversary edition of the iPhone. It's all speculation at this point.

    It flew right over your head... nobody said they do... but the leaks (the past few years) have been pretty spot on, so not looking like anything special

    Or you could just ignore / not read / not pursue any of these "leaks" and still be "surprised". It's all about the choices we make.

    Hard to ignore when every site that reports on Apple posts it...

    I agree, which is why I don't pay attention to them. Any article I see, I just end up skipping it. Manufacturers will show us the product when they're good and ready to.

    Yeah I'd rather just have the keynote and be surprised by it.

    The unfortunate thing is that the internet is effectively paid for by clicks on websites and if there was no traffic on the pages with stories about leaks and rumours then they'd soon stop but clearly there's lots of people who do read them. I tend to glance through the headlines on my Twitter feed and if all there is are rumours and speculation then I don't look any further. I've got a finely tuned nose for clickbait so those stories definitely don't get clicked on.
