3D Facial Recognition to Replace Touch ID on Apple iPhone 8

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Introduces A New Patent For iPhone 8 Home Button

The expected glass back of the iPhone 8 reportedly reduces interference versus the metal back design. This method will help Apple to bring changes in the iPhone. The reason being that Apple plans to enhance the phone's water-proofing capabilities, and in the process it'll likely get rid of all the physical buttons.

Apple is preparing to gift new surprise for the iPhone users. The KGI Securities analyst has revealed its 2017 offering, including its design, size, display screen, core navigation, and improved security technologies.

While its possible that Apple could expand the use of the 3D scanner in future projects, the technology will only debut with one primary goal at launch: unlocking the iPhone via facial recognition.

As for the pricing, a report from FastCompany says that iPhone 8 will be trading for over $1,000.

Apple Insider reports that this iPhone is expected to have a 5.8-inch edgeless OLED screen but check this out, it will be squeezed into the same form factor as the 4.7-inch iPhone 7.

Yas, Enid, yas gurl! After embracing his friends, Morgan told them that Carol had been at The Kingdom but that she had now left. They reunite with Morgan [Lennie James] and intend to propose an alliance between the Kingdom and Alexandria, to no avail.

The bigger battery in iPhone 8 will be equipped with a wireless charging technology, one that will enable users to charge their phone without having to plug it. Kuo doesn't tell us what this will do, but it is believed it will display virtual buttons and shortcuts. The rest will serve as a "function area" that sits at the bottom of the device in place of the Touch ID button. This could mean that the iPhone 8 will have a main screen resolution that's twice as much as the iPhone 6, 6s and 7 models.

The removal of Touch ID also makes sense because Apple is gearing for the launch of a new iPhone that does not have the iconic Home button. Each aspect has some implementation difficulties, which Hall believes have been rectified by Apple and partner Primesense in a relatively cheap package that should add not much more than 3 percent to the build cost of an iPhone. Tech giant hints intention to leverage LuxVue acquisition to integrate fingerprint reading technology to Apple gadgets.

Kuo also stated that the new device will have other biometric technologies.

Originally, it was rumored that the iPhone 8 would feature a long-range wireless solution instead of the typical inductive solution.

Ming-Chi Kuo has stressed that Apple Inc. The latter specializes in micro-LED displays that could replace the bulky sensor components seen in handsets today.
