According to Macrumors, Apple has added two new algorithms named "AXRestingPearlUnlock" and "com.apple.accessibility.resting.pearl.unlock" in their accessibility option to improve the facial recognition system for iPhone 8. Gene Munster, co-founder of Loup Ventures, believes that the move could be a "game changer".
Glass back aside, the iPhone 7S is expected to be very similar to the 7 and 7 Plus. This ensures that specific pixels can be turned off for true blacks. It is, by far, the most efficient of all other methods. However, the upcoming Apple flagship is a highly anticipated phone that many Apple fans, as well as tech enthusiasts, are looking forward to. We're speculating that this is the 7s due to the camera module similarity to the iPhone 7. No mention in Businessweek's report, though, of the all-new form factor that I've heard is coming for this year's new watches. The on-board SIM card will enable users to communicate (make calls and send SMS/MMS messages) and directly connect to 3G or 4G networks. The Apple Watch 2 for example included a GPS chip which meant it no longer had to rely on a smartphone's location feature. The Wall Street Journal claims the watch will be rolled into existing monthly plans for a fee, rather than running as a separate bill.
Having suffered a bad fall on a trail last year and needing an ambulance to get me to medical care, I could see the value of this. There is some code that suggests D22 will have a front-facing infrared camera.
Apple iPhone 8 is expected to be announced along side the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
A recent report pointed out that Apple might just kill of one of iPhone's most iconic design.
In addition, the top of the phone is also interesting. The image clearly points towards the presence of a glass back unlike the aluminium chassis seen on the iPhone 7s Plus and 6s Plus.
