I Refuse To Believe This Rumour About The iPhone With No Fingerprint Reader

  I Refuse To Believe This Rumour About The iPhone With No Fingerprint Reader The Wall Street Journal has the latest rumour on the iPhone 8 -- likely the last big rumour floated before the phone is announced on September 12. When images of the upcoming iPhone first began leaking, it became clear that the home button most users are familiar with had likely been axed. Instead, according the WSJ, Apple was focused on embedding a touch sensor in the glass using ultrasonic technology. This tech, which is so new it's infantile compared to the capacitive touch sensor technology currently in iPhones, is notoriously difficult to implement consistently on a mass-produced device such as the iPhone.

The iPhone 6 is still a sensational handset, but not flawless. Should I be giving the iPhone a pass while castigating Android or Windows Phones for the same thing?" Verdict . When I first picked up the iPhone 6 I thought this was going to be a hard review to write.

Two veteran tech experts have offered their learned opinion on the newly-unveiled iPhone models.

Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the state at the company's new Apple Park campus in the US to reveal the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

Tech Guide editor and radio host Stephen Fenech and tech podcast and radio host Trevor Long were both in the audience.

"There's no doubt the screen is amazing - top to bottom, the whole front of the phone is a screen, it looks sensational," Mr Long said of the iPhone X.

There's An iPhone 8 That Costs $87,000 And I'll Just Be Over Here Weeping For Humanity

  There's An iPhone 8 That Costs $87,000 And I'll Just Be Over Here Weeping For Humanity The iPhone 8 hasn't even been properly announced yet (that happens Wednesday morning - and we'll be up live-blogging the whole thing), but there's already a version available to order featuring 250 grams of 22K gold, that costs the equivalent of $87,129 Australian dollars. I justyeah nah, hey?The iPhone 8 hasn't even been properly announced yet (that happens Wednesday morning - and we'll be up live-blogging the whole thing), but there's already a version available to order featuring 250 grams of 22K gold, that costs the equivalent of $87,129 Australian dollars.

Of all the new features of Apple's new iPhone 5S, few have drawn more attention than the built-in fingerprint scanner known as Touch ID. The thoughts that follow aren't intended to be a final verdict —the proof won't be delivered until we see how the feature works in the real world.

Verdict . Apple's idea that 'The only thing that's changed is everything' seems instantly to be a bit of misnomer. That's not me saying that anything Apple does it going to be great, but the reason so many people fall over themselves to get the new iPhone is because they know it will be a solid

The phone offers a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge display, and no Home button.

Users will also unlock their phone through facial recognition.

"So what it uses is quite advanced camera technology to not just see your face but see all around your face so that it can determine you are a real person, you're not a mask and that you are who you say you are," Mr Long said.

Mr Fenech predicted the iPhone's new wireless charging, which involves placing the phone on a charging pad rather than plugging it in to a cable, would change the landscape of a lot of businesses.

"You're going to see that a lot of places like cafes and airports and even cars are going to include this new wireless charging technology," he said.

Mr Fenech was also impressed with the iPhone 8.

Apple introduces ‘Face ID’ for iPhone X

  Apple introduces ‘Face ID’ for iPhone X Apple today confirmed the iPhone X will feature facial recognition technology dependent upon a new “true depth camera system” including an infrared camera, flood illuminator, dot projector, and proximity sensor. The Face ID feature will work in low light situations and, according to Apple, there’s only a one in a million chance another face (unless you have an evil twin) can unlock your device.Every time you look at your iPhone X it detects your face. The feature will allow users to unlock devices simply by looking at them, essentially letting iPhone owners to use their face as a password.

VERDICT . The iPhone 5 is a compelling package and certainly enough to keep Apple's many fans hooked. Apple's newest iPhone is revolutionary, of course it's just a modest, modern revolution. Get more tech news and reviews at News.com.au.
