One of the iPhone models Apple has planned for this year, will feature support for wireless charging, the company itself has hinted in iOS 11 GM software code (iOS 11 featuring a gesture-based user interface and animated emojis).

Combining through the unreleased iOS 11 GM (a version of the software that is nearly as good as the final version would be, and it is often released to developers and other stakeholders for internal testing), Brazilian iOS developer Guilherme Rambo chanced upon references of wireless charging in the code. "It will even show some 3D animations when charging," Rambo tweeted.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith, who also looked at the iOS 11 gold master code, found several hardware specifications of the upcoming iPhone models. According to Smith, iPhone 8 will come with 2GB of RAM, while the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X come with 3GB RAM each.

iPhone X will be equipped with the 13-megapixel camera with support for 4K videos at 60fps and 1080p videos at 240fps. For the selfie and video chat, the iPhone X is expected to feature a 7-megapixel front camera which will offer support for video recording in 1080p resolution at 30fps.

The iPhone X model featuring a six-core Apple SoC. The company may have plans to pack four high performance "Mistral" cores and two energy efficient "Monsoon" cores, according to developers who looked at the code. To offer some perspective, the current generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are powered by quad-core Apple A10 SoCs, which comprise two high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores.

Guilherme Rambo also uncovered some details about Face ID, the anticipated facial authentication technology the new iPhone models - iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X - are expected to feature, based on previous reports. Face ID will not only let people unlock their iPhone's lock screen, but it could also be used to confirm purchases in iTunes and request autofill feature of Safari to be triggered, according to Rambo,

According to Kuo, Apple has set up four Face ID components - structured light transmitter, structure light receiver, front camera, and time of flight/proximity sensor - to enable the facial recognition capability that the company is widely expected to pitch as a replacement to its Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

The company has maintained an estimated 50 to 100cm of distance between the light transmitter and receiver setups, Kuo noted, adding that to insure all the modules are working in tandem, an active alignment process needs to be performed before final assembly of these modules on the phone. Separately, Kuo also estimated that the new iPhone models will dispatch with True Tone, a wide-color gamut display technology that Apple has featured in several recent iPad models, including the iPad Pro.

These revelations come hours after developers dropped major hints at what Apple plans to announce at its event on Tuesday, which it has traditionally used to showcase new iPhone models with cutting edge technologies to reassert its tent-pole position in Silicon Valley.

According to developers, Apple plans to launch three new models of iPhone

Apple Watch with support for LTE connectivity:-

Citing an upcoming version of Apple Watch software, the separately reaffirmed that the upcoming Apple Watch will feature LTE cellular network support, and will be able to make and receive phone calls independently of the iPhone. The LTE-enabled Apple Watch will apparently share the same phone number as the iPhone it has been paired with, the blog added, citing references in the code spotted by Steven Troughton Smith and other developers.

AirPods wireless earphones:-

These are compact wireless headphones. The microphones are good for calls. They're easy to carry, pretty easy to put on and take off and recharge. They've stayed with me because of convenience, not fashion.Instead of carrying a weird pair of Lightning headphones or a dongle I'll lose, at least AirPods can be used with other Bluetooth devices.


According to new reports by Steve Troughton-Smith and 9to5Mac, the higher-end iPhone X will feature a new type of animated emoji "Animoji" that leverages the phone's new 3D sensing technology. Apparently, these special emoji will be able to track and superimpose your facial expressions on a handful of animals including chimps, robots, pigs, cats, chickens, dogs, foxes and, of course, poop.
