iPhone 8 adds face recognition and more


Apple’s iPhone 8 will be launching sometime this fall and is expected to be loaded with many new features.

The feature most likely to appeal to the masses who flock to Apple stores with the drop of each new device is said to be the face scanner. It is purported to unlock the phone in a few hundred milliseconds – quite an accomplishment for the owner who needs to gain access to their phone quicker than the blink of an eye.

The face scanner will be the newest technology going into the future and may even replace the fingerprint reader one day.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 also features a face scanner, though it has been reported that it can be fooled. Samsung believes this feature makes its S8 more secure; however, it has been purported to be tricked by a photo.

As we will have to wait for the new iPhone 8 to be released later in the fall, only time will tell whether it is more secure and accurate than the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Other features added to the iPhone 8 include an edge-to-edge OLED display. The edge-to-edge feature will make the screen larger without increasing the overall size of the phone. The screen is also said to be more colorful and brighter than previous screens.

Wireless charging will be another new feature. This may end up being a very popular feature since it will do away with lost or damaged charging cords.

The much-anticipated new iPhone 8 is expected to launch sometime in September in limited quantities. There are sure to be long lines at stores for this one.
