There have been plenty of leaks regarding the Apple iPhone 8 in the past few months. However, today’s leaks might be the biggest as the Apple HomePod code which was recently leaked has shown that the iPhone 8 might come with a resizeable home button. It has also been rumoured that people will be able to make payments with the help of facial recognition. Moreover, a video has surfaced which showcases all the colours of the phone will be launched in, and lastly, a report has stated that due to issues in the implementation of the fingerprint scanner the launch of the new iPhone might be delayed until November.
Firstly, A developer Steve Troughton Smith found out in the HomePod code that Apple will be providing a resizeable Home Button on the alleged Apple iPhone 8, he also said that the company will offer an option to hide the indicator also. It was also pointed out that there is no API to change the colour of the home button and that the tab bars extend under it. He also went ahead and shared a mockup of the expected screen and it seems like it will feature a taller than usual aspect ratio.
Apple has codenamed its facial recognition system as Pearl ID. A developer Guilherme Rambo in the cod discovered that the device will be able to store multiple faces, and would also come with Apple Pay support on it. Moreover, he discovered that the Pearl ID will be accessible by third party apps also.
A YouTuber Danny Winget has posted a video where he shows off three colour variants of the alleged iPhone 8. The Black, White and the copper Gold colour variants have been showcased in the video. However, these are just mockups of the device and not real units.
The alleged schematics of the logic board of the Apple iPhone 8 have been shared by PhoneArena. However, they don’t offer any revealing information about the upcoming device.
We do recommend that you take all these rumours and reports with a pinch of salt as the company has not yet revealed the smartphone or any details about it. Anything can change internally from now until the launch date.
