Apple iPhone 8 may feature Face ID, Animoji, Portrait Lighting

Apple and Accenture to create iOS business solutions

Some of these wallpapers are meant for the OLED display of iPhone 8.

The iOS 11 GM reveals what appear to be wallpapers that are specifically created to take advantage of the superlative contrast ratios of OLED displays with some vibrant wallpapers. It's also incorporated many new video recording formats such as 1080p at 240fps and 4K at 60fps. The display is touted to support 1125x2436 pixels resolution.

Portrait Lighting is one of the new enhanced features found in iOS 11 and it is based on the original Portrait mode effect on iPhones for creating DSLR-like shots, using depth of field under varying lighting conditions.

In addition to the portrait, the iPhone 8 camera will also have new video recording resolution and capture speeds.

Face ID is referenced in Apple's firmware, and it appears to be the official name for the new way to unlock the iPhone 8 with just your face. 9to5Mac also discovered an animation embedded in the firmware that explains how to use Face ID.

Soon after the event, Apple is also certainly going to release public versions of iOS 11, watchOS 4, tvOS 11, and macOS High Sierra.

Apple's emojis are about to get a little more personal thanks to something called Animoji.

The new side button functions could be used for activating Siri, using FaceID with double or even triple clicks.

The revamped AirPods will feature the charging indicator light being relocated to the front from inside of the case.

The Apple Watch app appears to feature an image of the next-gen smartwatch. Looking closer at the image reveals what could be indicators for cellular signal strength, confirming that an LTE-enabled Apple Watch is indeed on the way.

A photo of the LTE Apple Watch may have been uncovered in a recently leaked golden master of iOS 11. 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. 9to5Mac speculates that you might have to pay your carrier a little more to enable the feature. It looks like the infamous HomePod leak left a few surprises for us after all.
