The series of leaks this weekend seems to have spilled the beans on what Apple plans to unveil on Tuesday, its main September event, which has traditionally been used to showcase new iPhone models with advanced technologies to confirm the position of their tiltfield in Silicon Valley.
The tenth jubilee model of the iPhone will be called the iPhone X, according to developer Stephen Troton Smith, who analyzed the leaked iOS collection, which will be released for consumers later this month, and found several references to the upcoming iPhone models in lines of code,
10-year-old model of the iPhone from Apple can be called iPhone X
It is expected that the company will introduce two more iPhone models on Tuesday
It is expected that Apple will also update the TV, watch the line and announce Animoji
iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X
According to the code, iPhone X will be released along with two other iPhone models called iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, confirming that Apple is missing the "S" cycle by jumping on the iPhone 8 after launching the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models last year.
It is expected that the iPhone X will be equipped with OLED-screen, the main departure from the models of the iPhone of the current generation, which come with LCD screens. OLED-screen provides improved color reproduction and greater energy efficiency. Other models of iPhone - iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus - are expected to function LCD screens. However, the company may have plans to introduce True Tone Display to improve the white balance, as we saw in the latest models of the iPad Pro, reports 9to5Mac.
Person and Animoji identifier
At least one of the new iPhone models will come with an invisible Face Detection technology called "Face ID", allowing users to authenticate and unlock the phone by simply glancing at the phone.
Apple managed to pull this feat with the help of housing sensors, which can measure the depth and facial expression, added the site. Users will also be able to use this function by creating custom Animoji, animated emoticons that look like people.
Enabling this feature can further push Apple's dominance in the smartphone industry. A company that has long positioned the photo as a key part of the iPhone's marketing step can use this new technology to push iMessage, which has not yet gained many advantages outside the developed markets.
This new feature, perhaps, once worked. In the code were found 3D images of emoticons, which showed robots and monkeys. Behind the scenes, the company can use FaceShift technology, a startup offering motion-capture expertise. The technology FaceShift was used in the films "Star Wars". Apple acquired the company in 2015.
Ryan Jones, the developer of the popular Weatherline iOS application, said on Saturday that Apple had abandoned its new application, also called Animoji, over the past year. "Over the past year I struggled with the denials in the App Store - we created an application called Animoji with animated emotions ... now I know why," he wrote on Twitter.
The code suggested that at least one model of the iPhone - most likely the iPhone X - will be shipped without a fingerprint scanner called Touch ID, which the company introduced with the iPhone 5 and changed the way to unlock the phones. A new technology for recognizing faces from Apple can become an industry standard, and various smartphone manufacturers are implementing similar technologies.
It was not entirely clear how some Touch ID features - for example, the ability to go to the main screen, clicking once - will be handled in the new iPhone model. However, he can plan to introduce several new gestures and interactions with the power button. 9To5Mac says that the power button can receive new double-tap functions.
Also in the code was seen the mode of Lightning Portrait, a function that is probably an improvement in the existing Portrait mode, which the company introduced with the iPhone 7 Plus last year.
Apple Watch LTE and the new AirPods
Referring to the upcoming version of Apple Watch software, they separately confirmed that the upcoming Apple Watch will support the LTE cellular network and will be able to make and receive phone calls regardless of the iPhone. Apple Watch with LTE support is likely to have the same phone number as the iPhone it was connected to, added a blog, referring to the links in the code written by Steven Troton Smith and other developers.
A small link to AirPods was also seen in the code by Smith. Perhaps the company plans to introduce an updated model of AirPods, its Bluetooth headphones, which it introduced last year. But besides changing the position of the charging indicator, no other changes were detected. The modern generation of AirPods requires that users open the AirPods body to see the charging indicator.
The revised model may have an indicator located outside the body. Finally, the code also confirmed previous reports that new iPhone models will have a cutout on top of the display without a display. The code suggested that the left side of the status bar will show the system time, and on the right side - Wi-Fi, the cellular signal level and battery life.
Smith also found links to Apple TV, which suggested that the upcoming streaming device would initially play the video at 2160p and support various color formats. The upcoming Apple TV, Smith added, is likely to require users to have at least 15 Mbps for streaming video in 4 KB resolution.
