IPhone 8 is iPhone X: Apple's big secret spills

What to expect from Apple's iPhone event next week

As is the case each and every year, there really isn't much left for Apple to surprise us with when company executives take the stage on September 12th.

The same leak also reveals the preview image showcasing the new Apple Watch with a new face and red-accented digital crown, a signal meter and a hint at wireless LTE connectivity. Last but not least, the middle of the pack 256GB iPhone 8 will be priced at $1099.

True Tone Display will be found on the iPhone X. Similar to the feature on the iPad Pro, this will allow the screen on your iPhone X to have a white display that matches the environment that the device is being used in. To make room for the display, the device will feature a notch on the top.

Unlike previous iPhones that were just a type of up-gradation of their previous versions, the iPhone 10th anniversary edition that is iPhone 8, will feature a almost bezel-less front display. It will definitely make the phone's status bar more attractive. The headphone jack will still be dearly missed although, it may not seem that out of order or radical this time around. So far the consensus has been on iPhone 8 being the company's name of choice, but a new leak courtesy of some judicious digging through the latest iOS 11 golden master (GM) build. The 256GB variant will cost $1099, while the 512GB variant will cost $1199. One of the features of the camera talked for the device is its feature of SmartCam and capability of recording 4K video at 60fps. That's a risky launch price, and Apple has an interest in keeping the premium flagship from feeling overpriced.

Face ID appears to be the official marketing name for what's been referenced as Pearl ID, the facial recognition features that will likely replace the Touch ID fingerprint recognition feature. These rumours gained impedance when the 3D sensing modules of the iPhone 8 were leaked.

Flicking or swiping gestures could replace the home button function, enabling the handset face to appear nearly all-screen. Pulling upwards on the bar brings up the Home screen and a longer pull brings up the App Switcher.

Lots of rumors have suggested shipments of the iPhone X could be delayed due to OLED shortages and Apple's "urgent" need to find another display supplier besides Samsung.

The next leaked update also utilizes the face-scanning hardware that's rumored to be coming with the new iPhone 8.
