Apple's iPhone 8 might feature power of gaze to silence notifications

Friday, 11 Aug, 2017

When it comes to the launch, it is expected that this year Apple will debut three iPhones - the iPhone 8 along with iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. According to some reports, incorporating this design proved to be more of a technical challenge than Apple may have initially anticipated.

Kuo says Apple will enable the new feature using glass body and metal frame construction for its forthcoming headphones - and customers will need to buy an optional charging pad to make use of the feature. The iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 are certain to get it while doubt still looms on dual cameras on the iPhone 7s.

Another hands-on video has appeared showing the iPhone 7s Plus alongside the iPhone 8, with the latter being depicted in a gold/copper colour, as well as silver/white, and black.

But sources said Apple may have ditched the plan recently due to technical glitches like its archrival Samsung Electronics did for the current Galaxy S8.

Previous leaks claim that the digital home button will be displayed at the bottom part of the iPhone 8's screen.

Though Apple's financial guidance tells us a lot, it doesn't tell us everything about the precise timing of the new iPhone ramp-up, as well as information about the quantities of the new phones Apple hopes to ship during the upcoming product cycle. Waratah Capital Advisors Ltd. acquired a new position in shares of Apple during the fourth quarter valued at about $8,304,000.

Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. If Apple follows this approach, the new iPhones could simply be called iPhone, iPhone Plus, and iPhone Pro. One of the true standout features of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is their dedicated ISP. As well as its ability to mute when looked at, code also suggests the infrared sensor will be able to spot its owner's face while the phone is lying flat on a table. Now a new rumour suggests that the same 3D sensor can be used for a number of multiple functions, including the ability to automatically silence notifications when you are looking at it.

Sources also said shipments of finished iPhone devices are expected to start gaining momentum in August.
