Apple is copying Windows Phone's best feature with next iPhone

Mentioned in the smart speaker HomePod's firmware is a face unlock feature for the iPhone, which would allow customers to get past the lock screen by just looking at the phone. Additionally, the firmware contains dozens of strings and function names that are clearly connected to some kind of front-facing infrared face analysis tech: BKFaceDetectStateInfo, mouthFrown_L, com.apple.power.camera.frontInfrared.activeDuration, etc.

The codes were first noticed by a developer Steve Troughton-Smith who tweeted the screenshots on Sunday.

iPhone 8 leaks have become so popular that even Apple appears to be getting in on the action, seemingly confirming two rumored features. Well, it looks all the rumors are true, and we have Apple to thank for the biggest iPhone 8 leak to date.

As many have been lead to believe through previous reports, it appears as if the iPhone 8 will indeed be removing the Home button. They've also concluded that the resolution for the iPhone 8 could be as much of a visual leap forward from current-generation iPhones as the iPhone 4's Retina display was from the original iPhone. In one swoop, Apple managed to confirm the phone's design as well as the "Face ID" unlock feature. That alone, he said, is proof that Apple is indeed planning a facial-recognition feature in its upcoming handset.

Indian troops kill 2 Kashmiris in IHK
Speaking to ANI , Commander of 12 Rashtriya Rifles, Harbir Singh, said the militants "used to threat officers and politicians". The security forces are going after militants as part of operation "hunt down" and on the basis of a "hit list" of militants.

Analysts have been predicting Apple will try to eliminate the home button and look to release a phone nearly entirely free of the bezel. But seeing as this particular icon seems to hold well with the basic look of the iPhone 8, it can not be discounted as being just a generic set-piece just yet.

Going by the rumors, leaks, and revelations that have been surfacing lately, Apple is more or less confirmed to ditch its traditional Touch ID home button. These rumours suggest Apple is following the steps of Samsung's (KRX:005930) G8. Apple has not yet responded to TIME's request for comment.
