Upcoming iOS leaked, reveals new "iPhone 8" features

Posted September 10, 2017

iPhone 8 Display and True Tone Technology Naming nonsense out of the way, one of the things the iOS 11 firmware tells us is that the next iPhone will have a True Tone display, just like the one Apple launched with the iPad Pro.

It supports Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light, according to the iOS 11 golden master beta leaked to 9to5Mac. The new Camera update could mean that it will use flash when using portrait mode. This could also end up being called the iPhone X (pronounced iPhone ten), as was previously rumored, to honor the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone. This brings me to my second piece of evidence, which is that over the last two years, Apple has consistently sold more iPhone units at higher average selling prices (ASP). We can also expect Apple Watch Series 3 to come with a faster processor and more RAM.

Another leaked report suggests that the iPhone 8 might house Face ID - akin to Touch ID.

Though the iOS 11 GM will be available for download next week, keep in mind that the final version of the software for the public might not bear fruit for at least a couple of weeks. For anyone who can't afford to toss their old iPhone to buy the shiny new models, the iOS 11 update is a way to get some of the new features on existing devices. These are animated emoji that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions. Well, that will be a great improvement over the current iPhone 7 Plus' Portrait Mode, which does not operate in low-light conditions. Next up: new and confirmed features coming to the OLED iPhone... The upcoming cellphone is also named "iPhone X" instead of "iPhone 8". Tech giants including Samsung, Nokia, Google and OnePlus use OLED display in their devices as the advantage OLED enjoys over LCD displays is that it is thinner, lighter, brighter, has better contrast and consumes less energy.

Middleton and William are already parents to two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte . The announcement said the Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

Apple has also added a document scanner on iOS 11 in the Notes app.

Now, new reports have surfaced online revealing what might be Apple's next big product announcement, expected to be made on the 12th of September.

While the three new iPhones will likely hog much of the spotlight on Tuesday, there's other new hardware to look forward to, including what is likely a new Apple Watch.
