Holding 'lock' button may activate Siri in the next iPhone

The new iPhone 8 will come with a new design and new features, the handset will not feature a physical home button or fingerprint scanner. Considering that the iPhone 7 was seen by many as a disappointment and this year marks the iPhone's 10th anniversary, it stands to reason to assume that Apple is going to do something big.

Siri could be activated by pressing sleep/wake button. Of course, the option of "Hey Siri" is there, but according to a report, this could be shifted to the "Sleep/Wake" button on the hardware side of things. "I did find a gesture to invoke Siri by holding the lock button", he tweeted on Friday (September 1). It has been heavily suggested that the next phone will be getting rid of the home button entirely, which would mean that holding the home button in order to activate Siri would be out of the question.

Did you found something like that in source code? He had previously found references to the 4K Apple TV in tvOS 11.

The developer going by the name Guilherme Rambo on Twitter, has claimed that users will be able to fire Apple's digital voice-based assistant, Siri, using the power button of the iPhone 8.

Apple is also expected to integrate advance systems for its camera, 3D facial recognition technology for unlocking and wireless charging in the upcoming iPhone model. Whether Apple changes the implementation in this button is something that will be watched closely. It's used to lock or wake up the device.

Last month Brazilian blog iHelp BR discovered a line of code in the HomePod firmware that suggested the Sleep/Wake button could in fact change functions on the OLED iPhone depending on the app now in use.

Apple is expected to announce a new design for at least one of its iPhones slated to be unveiled this September.
