You might need to scan your face to unlock the new iPhone

There’s speculation that the iPhone 8 might not have a ‘home’ button

Due to this fact people have started to question if there’s no ‘home’ button, how will you unlock your phone? Your face?

Testing is underway on the technology that would power the new 3D sensor, they are claiming the scanner will work even with the phone lying flat on a table.

This is not the first time face scanning technology has been available, but in the past it has been difficult implement due to speed and reliability, but if it does happen it will also mean improved selfie picture quality!

What to Expect from the iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 is not released until September but details of the new features have been released by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The new iPhone will move from an LCD screen to an OLED screen, which will mean vivid colours and darker blacks as every pixel is ‘turned on’.

Other features will include a smarter Siri, who will be able to translate English into Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish; the iPhone 8 will also have an Augmented Reality feature (ARKit).

Augmented reality was used in the Pokemon Go gaming app last year, but Apple’s ARkit uses the camera, the GPS details and the accelerometers built-in to the iPhone to make it’s AR more realistic.
