Apple’s next iPhone will include a facial recognition feature that will allow you to unlock your phone with no hands needed (lazy person’s dream). Developers found the code needed for users’ faces to be screened, kinda the same infrared deal used to scan our fingertips currently.
In addition, rumors of a HomePod smart speaker have also been revealed. A specific sequence, referred to as “Pearl” ID, suggests that the iPhone 8 will include the firmware necessary to allow smart interaction with the HomePod. The extent to which it will work is still unconfirmed, but the detail is super exciting none the less.
