Apple enthusiasts are anticipating the formal announcement of the long-awaited iPhone 8 on September 12th.
Invitations have been sent out with the cryptic phrase "Let's meet at our place," referring to the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's Cupertino campus:
This latest iteration of Apple's flagship product is expected to help usher in a new era of mobile technology. One of the most-discussed features is its newly revamped camera, which will boast some trailblazing 3D facial recognition abilities.
Apple is, of course, no stranger to stirring the pot.
Privacy concerns especially have come to go hand-in-hand with new ID recognition tech. The idea that the corporation's products are digitally mapping and archiving our facial structures rubs many the wrong way, to say the least.
While such technology is not new per se (many mobile devices already use it) - the innovation lies in 3D facial capturing, versus the existing devices which utilize 2D.
Other anticipated features include a Home Button-less phone front, an improved rear-facing camera with enhanced augmented reality (AR) capabilities, and wireless charging, just to name a few.
