Apple iPhone 8 3D sensor could also mute notifications, reveals new leak

first_imgApple’s anniversary edition iPhone 8 is set to launch soon. The phone has been in buzz for past few months. The rumours that have constantly been pouring in have left almost nothing for the imagination. The iPhone will come with true tone display, ditch headphone 3.5mm headphone jack, support wireless charging and similar more rumours are doing rounds.There are talks that Apple could integrate a 3D sensor in the iPhone 8 which could be used to unlock the device by facial recognition. Now a new rumour suggests that the same 3D sensor could also act be used to silence the incoming notifications on the iPhone.Guilherme Rambo, an iOS developer has unlocked a new code in the HomePod firmware that suggests that sensor can also mute the notifications when user looks at the display. The revelation leads us to the following 3 possibilities:– First, the 3D sensor could be placed at the front since it has to perform multiple functions via facial recognition.– If the 3D sensor can also mute the notifications, then there’s no need for a physical button. Apple phones come with a physical button to silence the notifications which may be ditched in iPhone 8.– No touch ID. Reports of Apple mulling to do away with Touch ID is already in buzz. With 3D sensor’s multi-functionality there are higher chances that there would be no Touch ID in the anniversary edition iPhone 8.Also, in such a scenario, the 3D sensor will have to be manually set to perform any task. It can either unlock a phone or mute  the notifications , only one function at a time.advertisementFurther, a dummy video by a YouTuber Danny Winget shows a comparison between iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8. The latter appears to be smaller in height and width than the Plus variant. The alleged iPhone 7s Plus is seen with the same horizontally aligned camera set up, a glass body and a home button where as the iPhone 8 is seen sporting a  bezel less screen, no home button and wit several sensors on front.Also Read: iPhone 8 specs and key features leak, this year’s iPhone will be truly differentIn  separate leaks coming from popular tipsters Benjamin Geskin and Ben Miller , the iPhone 8 is speculated to come in two new colour variants- Copper Gold and Copper Gold.#iPhone8 Design-Dummy, das Display wre gr?er als jenes eines Plus-Modells, aber im Gehuse eines regulren. pic.twitter.com/wflyGMAHBt- Ben Miller (@bensen) August 9, 2017I think It can look amazing | #iPhone8 Copper Gold(Model by AppleiDesigner, color by Me) pic.twitter.com/Mawrs7MuMI- Benjamin Geskin (@VenyaGeskin1) August 9, 2017last_img read more
