iOS 11 GM leak reveals all ahead of Apple announcements on Tuesday

The leaks from the iOS 11 GM continue this weekend. Following information such as a new Portrait Lighting feature and the iPhone X naming scheme, developers have now uncovered additional details on Face ID, the Camera app, and more.

The rumour is the leak was a “deliberate malicious act by a rogue Apple employee” according to Apple pet, Gruber. God help whoever it was if they get caught, I dare say their employment wont continue (if they’re still employed at all).

Anywho, iOS 11 pretty much tells us everything we needed to know about Tuesday. iPhone 8, & 8 Plus are coming, the big new boy will be iPhone X though, which will have the OLED screen and no Home Button. “Face ID” will be in all of them but in iPhone X don’t expect Touch ID to be under the glass.

In terms of software “Portrait mode” is getting a lighting overhaul and then there’s “Animoji” which will use the Face ID tech to map your own expression onto 3D emoji models for you messaging.

There’s an LTE version of the Apple Watch coming in series 3 as well as a new version of AirPods too.

Lastly the Apple TV’s 4K upgrade is pretty much in concrete too, but that really wasn’t a secret before hand was it?
