Apple will reportedly announce its new iPhones—and, probably, a new Apple Watch and Apple TV—on Sept. 12. The event will probably take place in Cupertino, where Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus, Apple Watch 3 and a 4K Apple TV alongside the iPhone 8, plus reveal the public release date of iOS 11.
Rumors claim the iPhone 8 will ditch the home button in favor of gesture controls. Instead of pressing the home button to perform functions such as calling up Siri and viewing app screens, users will maneuver around the iPhone 8 using gestures.
The version of iOS that will ship with the new phone will place a bar along the bottom of the screen. Swiping up unlocks the phone. Doing the same again when inside an app starts the multitasking interface, which will ditch the stacked card interface in favor of individually positioned cards. Swiping up again goes back to the home screen.
The new phone will also have rounded corners, as opposed to square, and a "3D facial recognition sensor to unlock [the] phone and make payments." An infrared sensor will also make the camera capable of facial recognition in the dark.
