Apple itself just leaked the iPhone 8 design, but there's more

One of the developers who grabbed the code, Steve Troughton-Smith, realized that the speaker's code contained the base code for the iPhone as well, including references to technology not found on existing models. Included as part of "BiometricKit", the existence of infrared face unlocking was found in numerous places throughout the HomePod's software payload. Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Monday. What are your thoughts on the HomePod's revelations of the iPhone 8 design and form factor? This, according to the leak, will use infrared to detect the face of the phone's owner - ideal for in the dark. If it matches, the person would gain access to the device.

The leaks confirm the long-held belief that Apple would move towards a phone that is "all-screen", and it now looks like Touch ID will be replaced by Face ID. However it's not confirmed whether the camera will be added to the new iPhone or is an independent idea. The code, Troughton-Smith argued, is the smoking gun.

With that said, it is also worth noting that the code comes with a picture of an iPhone prototype, and just as we have been witnessing all these days, it doesn't have any bezel or Touch ID button. The code is believed to include references to Apple's upcoming iPhone, including a set of commands for how a feature referred to as "BKFaceDetect" should work. The image shows a silhouette of a device that has a screen almost entirely covering its face and a small notch at the top for the smartphone's earpiece.

Such leaks need to be taken with a pinch of salt as they could simply be holding icons or deliberate misdirection by Apple. Due to a rumored borderless screen, the iPhone 8 won't have space on the front for the Touch ID sensor, the current fingerprint reader unlock. Additionally, the phone could also possibly feature wireless charging as well. However, we are also expecting the company to announce a high end iPhone 8. But two of the devices biggest secret may already be known.
