Apple is Planning to Release the HomePod firmware reveals Iphone Facial Recognition

In the code Troughton-Smith analyzed, there was a mention of a "face detect operation". Two developers working with early HomePod kits, Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo, have stepped forth on Twitter to broadcast their findings to eager Apple fans, nearly assuredly agitating the company they received the units from in the process. It shows what appears to be a almost bezel-free iPhone with a cut-out intruding into the top of the screen from an earphone and camera (and, presumably, the sensors required for all of the aforementioned facial detection).

Smith also explains that the new iPhone 8 will come with a new iOS status bar which is a "lot more complex and powerful in design" because of the notch cutout.

The HomePod firmware, which corresponds to iOS 11.0.2, appears to confirm Bloomberg's report via references in the code to an infrared "FaceDetect" unlock feature in iOS's BiometricKit.

Apple is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its iPhone, and it is expected that the company will bring a great new iPhone 8 this year.

The new device is expected to be launched in September so there will no doubt be several leaks before then.

According to a render sourced by Engadget, the iPhone 8 could feature a glass back, which would make long-distance wireless charging possible on the device. This was also backed by The Unbox Therapy on its YouTube channel while showing off a prototype of Apple iPhone 8 thus giving more credibility on the lack of physical home button on the front and back portions of 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. Given how poorly Apple has been guarding the secrets of its next smartphone this time round, chances are we'll hear more very soon, Engadget said. The feature will allow users to unlock their phones just by looking at it. He followed this with an image of the new iPhone, plucked from the firmware and widely considered as the first piece of indisputable evidence that this is what the new iPhone will look like.

Further probing of the firmware found an icon used to represent the D22 device, which shows a smartphone without Apple's traditional home button and a screen that nearly entirely fills the front of the device with only a cut out at the top for the front-facing camera, sensors and speaker.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
