Another zany new development is Animoji, which are apparently 3D-generated emojis which will sync with facial tracking to create customised expressions. That again isn't surprising considering that the iPhone X is going to be celebrating a decade of the device in existence. For what it's worth, we can't imagine the animations seen below will actually appear every time a user unlocks his or her device.

Are you excited for the annual iPhone upgrade? A total of 16 new wallpapers for iPhone was discovered. In recent years, the speed at which iPhone sales have grown has slowed significantly, to the point of experiencing a decline in 2016. The change will mean you'll get more vibrant colors with greater dynamic range and deeper blacks, but also increased brightness and greater power efficiency since each pixel only lights up when it's turned on (not black). This feature will support Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light. To make room for the display, the device will feature a notch on the top.

The device is expected to launch alongside 2 other models that will feature nearly the same design as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus but with improved internals and glass shells instead of aluminum.

Screenshots of the Home button-free display show what looks like a multifunctional space at the bottom, which is a nice use of that freed up real estate. This startup was known for its facial recognition tech. He noted that the facial recognition technology isn't working, so it doesn't line up with where his face actually is. Most recently, Guilherme Rambo unearthed assets which provide us with an interesting look at the Face ID setup process on the iPhone 8.

Without that notch, the screen of the new phone would wrap all the way over the front.

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. But soon you may not have to charge your phone and plug your headphones into the same port.

Further leaks are likely to emerge from the new software with time.

This isn't to say that speaker quality isn't important, it's just that for the most part Apple has done a decent job with its speakers, so in the grand scheme of things maybe it isn't quite as exciting, but either way we'll have more details come next Tuesday.

The news of the names, including, also, the iPhone 8 Plus, comes via iOS developer Steven Troughton-Smith, who found the names in a firmware update ahead of Tuesday's official announcement, as 9to5Mac reports, and there's still a possibility that "iPhone X" is not the final name, though this appears to be a strong indicator.
