New iPhone likely to feature facial recognition and an all-screen design

Posted August 02, 2017

A potential "attention detection" feature is also mentioned in the code, with some speculating that may mean the phone will remain silent for notifications if it knows you're looking at the screen already. Twitter posts of the developer Steve Troughton-Smith has been the primary source of the said information.

Yesterday word that the iPhone 8 would get infrared face unlock detection surfaced via firmware for the HomePod device.

The report, which also carried designs of the Apple iPhone 8, says the new iPhone will not have any bezels at all, something that has been talked about earlier as well.

Apple is reported to announce three iPhones this year namely iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and a special edition iPhone 8. Wireless charging for the iPhone 8 has been the subject of many rumors, but there hasn't been much in the way to speculation concerning fast charging.

Apple is expected to reveal the iPhone 8 with a bezel free front which has no home button and hides the front facing speaker, camera and sensors behind the glass of the screen. CAD drawings, 3D renders, and protective case designs have shown the same purported iPhone 8 design over and over.

Apple's next iPhone is expected to feature facial-recognition technology and an edge-to-edge display, if design leaks are to be believed.

To recall, a couple of Tech experts and tipsters have been speculating over the past few weeks about Apple ditching the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and include the face recognition feature as a replacement. Apple accidentally released the firmware over the weekend resulting in a frenzy of analysis about previously unknown features.

Instead of using a physical home button, the iPhone 8 will have a virtual home button that is called the "Home Indicator". But seeing as this particular icon seems to hold well with the basic look of the iPhone 8, it can not be discounted as being just a generic set-piece just yet.
