Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 7s rumored prices

But it appears, Apple's iOS 11 may roll out for older devices much earlier than expected.

Apple has already announced that it's releasing a smart home speaker called the HomePod, and it seems probable that we'll hear more about it at the iPhone launch event on Tuesday. And there are indications that there'll be one or more upgraded sensors on the back of the phone for more accurate augmented-reality experiences - one of the big new technologies coming in iOS 11.

Home button concept will be ditched on the OLED iPhone aka iPhone X aka iPhone Edition to incorporate a bezel-less or full screen experience. It will also be used to verify identification for Apple Pay.

There's also a short animation for when an iPhone is connected to a charger.

Beyond that, the event carries special meaning for Apple. According to a Wall Street Journal report, a glitch in the manufacturing process has delayed the iPhone 8 production by a full month.

Portrait Lighting is rumored to be a Portrait Mode refinement that uses the dual-lens camera depth-sensing capabilities to create different lighting effects.

Apple has been riding high thanks to iPhone sales for just over 10 years now, but the company's dependence on the device could eventually become a problem. There is a video tutorial that shows how users will set this up. Let's see more about the features that would come with the new iOS 11 Firmware on Apple's unannounced iPhone 8 smartphone.

The iOS 11 GM files also point to the Face ID feature that will be an integrated part of the facial recognition feature in the upcoming OLED iPhone, wherein the Touch ID will be replaced with the Face ID feature on the next-gen iPhones. Changes in the code of iOS 11 also suggest the same.

The "animoji" facial expression capture appears to be exclusive to the high-end OLED iPhone expected at the september 12 release event.

Portrait Lighting, which we believe will launch in beta similar to Portrait mode previous year, supports Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light.

With the likes of iPhone 5, 5s, 6, 6S, 6S Plus, and iPhone 7 that have earned a lot of appreciations from consumers all over the world, we can only expect more sophistication from Apple.
