As Apple gear up for the unveiling of its new iPhone 8 in September. There’s so much anticipation as the company is promising some big hardware changes and software upgrade to its forthcoming iPhone 8. The new iPhone will yet again be setting the bar high for its sophisticated rivals. And also accomplishing a thumbs up from its enthusiasts who have become bored with it not too differ previous versions.
Expected features of the iPhone 8
Rumour has it that the phone will have a glass and steel body with a curved edge OLED display against its former LCD screen, wireless charging, and no more physical home button. But the most anticipated upgrade Apple is bringing along with its new iPhone 8 will be an Iris Scanner. Although both Samsung and Microsoft have implemented this feature in their phones in the past. Apple is for the first time adding the technology to its iPhone which has become a talk-about on various tech blogs.
What is the impact of an Iris Scanner?
Adding an iris scanner to the iPhone 8 only means one thing; advanced biometric security. Just like what Samsung did with its Note7’s iris scanner but the Samsung phone later took a sad ending. The eye-examining feature would serve the purpose of authenticating the user’s identity and unlocking the 10th anniversary iPhone. Among other things, the new feature will simplify the authentication process for mobile services like Apple Pay.
Can the fingerprint scanner be compared to an Iris scanner
An iris scanner is more advanced in both speed and authentication. The fingerprint scanner has undeniably become ubiquitous among flagship devices on the market and there’s a need for an upgrade. For one thing, iris scanning is a more specific type of biometric technology because each person’s iris has a complex and very unique pattern.
As rumors continue to go round on how and what the new iPhone 8 would look like and come with. Its ever die-hard users and enthusiasts are hoping and hungry for these features to come with the new flagship phone. As usual, our team at TechAblaze will keep you updated and wait for the big day in September and hopefully, everything anticipated will be fulfilled.
