With each new iPhone 8 leak that we've seen so far, it becomes increasingly obvious that the hottest iPhone that Apple will launch this year will also feature a design unlike anything we've seen on previous models.

Troughton-Smith found code indicating infrared-enabled face detection, which could well be a replacement. Since the HomePod's firmware went live, developers Steve Troughton-Smith and Guilherme Rambo have been busy examining the software for items of interest. Included in the code is also a picture of an iPhone prototype which doesn't have any bezel or the Touch ID button. Apple has placed its security features such as phone unlocking under a special kit in its firmware known as BiometricKit, that is meant for developers to access and use.

There are a number of rumoured names for the iPhone 8, including the Edition, Pro, or X. The release will coincide with the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone, and will sit alongside an improved iPhone 7 is expected to be "radically" different.

Should all this be true, it will be the biggest change to the iPhone devices since the introduction of larger screens in 2014 with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Considering how rarely Apple makes any sort of mistake like this, it could be that Apple just wanted to build some buzz in the tech world as most of the attention of late has been on the Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung.

A look at who might be Pakistan's next prime minister
Shahbaz will likely seek election to the National Assembly from Nawaz Sharif's constituency, which is a PML-N stronghold. No civilian prime minister in Pakistan has ever completed a full term in office.

According to the reports that were coming, Apple was planning to include an infrared camera for scanning the face of users. This would corroborate rumors that Apple is ditching the home button for the iPhone 8.

It is uncertain whether the HomePod firmware was distributed intentionally to give developers a heads-up on how to build systems capable of interacting with the speaker before the official release, or if it was leaked by accident by Apple. It certainly doesn't look like an iPhone 7S, but will it be an iPhone 8, iPhone X, or something else? The images will tell us more information regarding the iPhone 8 front, a design which is same as we predicted in leaks.

The near bezel-less design has always been expected, with leaks and rumours suggesting that Apple was following Samsung's design moves with the Galaxy S8 and producing a smartphone that resembles Android-creator Andy Rubin's upcoming Essential phone.
