In case you haven't been keeping up the news over the past couple weeks, Apple accidentally make a firmware for the HomePod public. The HomePod apparently runs iOS, and the version leaked was 11.0.2.
Developers dove deep into the code and found several features expected to make an appearance on the iPhone 8, or whatever Apple ends up calling it.
Here is a summary of the most important details we have learned from the leaked firmware.
-iPhone 8 'final design'
-Face ID will replace Touch ID, and work for Apple Pay, open to 3rd party apps
-Face ID will be able to scan your face while lying flat on a table
-Both the rear and front cameras will support 4K video recording at 60fps, meaning the front camera would make a jump to at least 12MP in resolution
-Resolution of 1125 x 2436, 521 ppi, even though Retina is 300
It'll be interesting to hear Apple's explanation on that one...
-Tap to wake will be supported
-Wireless charging is coming
-Smart camera will detect different scenes and automatically change settings
-Lots of augmented reality
What do you guys think? Are you more excited after these pieces of information, or were you more excited before?
Personally, I thought the bezels would be even thinner than what is represented above, and I still think that sensor cutout is UGLY.
