IPhone 8: Apple software reveals plans for 'Face Detect'


In that code, one developer, Steven Troughton-Smith, found references to a reportedly forthcoming new iPhone feature: Unlocking the phone with your face, as captured by an infrared camera. After almost two days of sleuthing, Troughton-Smith found some code that appears to reveal a new feature that would let you unlock an iPhone with your face.

Apple has accidentally leaked the design of the new iPhone 8 in firmware for the upcoming HomePod smart speaker.

Of course, until Apple makes an official announcement about the future iPhone, speculation will continue but the discoveries made by the pair of developers may lend further credence to prior rumors.

It's a mystery as how Apple will secure the iPhone 8 given the traditional Touch ID fingerprint sensor changing forever.

Even better, it's possible to extract a stylized image of the new iPhone from the code.

The upcoming new iPhone will come with a face unlock feature. This year also marks the 10th anniversary since the original iPhone launched in 2007, so we're expecting something very special from Apple to celebrate this milestone. It can scan a user's face and unlock the iPhone within a few hundred milliseconds, the person said. This glyph appears to confirm the often-leaked, nearly-bezel-less design that we've seen in renders and other leaks. If Apple follows its usual pattern, the company should reveal new iPhone models in early September. But two of the handset's previously rumored features now appear to have been inadvertently confirmed by Apple itself. However, it may well be that 3D face-scanning is the solution to that.

Perhaps most importantly, the graphic looks identical to the design of devices that have leaked online in recent months. The resulting code references the use of a camera, access to stored facial information, and more, according to the information Troughton-Smith tweeted over the weekend.
