iPhone 8 might let you activate Siri with the sleep/wake button

  iPhone 8 might let you activate Siri with the sleep/wake button Since the upcoming, premium iPhone won’t include a physical home button, Apple has reportedly come up with at least one new way of triggering Siri with an actual button on the device: it will use the sleep/wake/power button. Developer Guilherme Rambo, who has already unearthed details about the “iPhone 8” and other coming Apple products like the HomePod and a 4K Apple TV, claims to have found a “gesture to invoke Siri by holding the lock button.”9to5Mac and MacRumors both reported on the discovery. Apple’s preferred way for users to interact with Siri will almost certainly remain voice and the “Hey Siri” callphrase.

But now, so close to Apple ' s Tuesday reveal, we're inclined to believe they're legit. 1. Three iPhones: iPhone X, iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus. Sep 11. • 10 iPhone 8 secrets spilled by Apple ' s superleak .

It's the biggest leak since Apple left an iPhone in a bar. Heck, it might be even bigger.

This weekend, journalists and developers got their hands on a leaked version of Apple's latest iOS 11 operating system... and found it chock-full of details about Apple's next iPhone, Apple Watch and even a new Apple TV.

Combined with the huge HomePod leak last month, it could paint a pretty complete picture of what Apple could reveal at tomorrow's event.

Mind you, we haven't independently verified any of this info, and it's always possible these details aren't final -- or are even intentionally leaked to throw us off the scent.

New rumor says the most expensive iPhone 8 will cost $1,200

  New rumor says the most expensive iPhone 8 will cost $1,200 Apple will finally announce the iPhone 8 next week, which is the most talked about phone of the year. Leaks from China suggested the iPhone 8 will be available in only two storage configurations, including 128GB and 256GB, while the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus will also get an entry-level 64GB option. Meanwhile, Twitter user Benjamin Geskin heard a different story. He says the iPhone 8 will be available in three versions, including 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB, priced at $999, $1,099, and $1,199, respectively.

But now, so close to Apple's Tuesday reveal, we're inclined to believe they're legit.

1. Three iPhones: iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus

One block of code. That's all it took to inject a massive dose of credibility into the biggest rumor around Apple's Tuesday reveal.

Which rumor, you ask? The rumor where Apple will announce *three* new iPhones instead of two -- including a ultra-high-end iPhone with a brand-new tall-and-narrow design, a huge OLED screen that covers almost the entire front of the phone, a face-recognizing infrared camera and a price north of $1,000.

Behold:

It also sounds like that tweet answers our other question. You know, the one about what those phones might be called.

Here’s another reason it may be impossible to buy an iPhone 8

  Here’s another reason it may be impossible to buy an iPhone 8 Manufacturing glitches reportedly will delay shipments of Apple's new flagship phone by about a month.

Too many connections. iPhone SE Screen Protector - KATIN [2-Pack] Apple iphone SE

— Steve T- S (@stroughtonsmith) August 10 , 2017. As Troughton-Smith points out, though it will be a virtual panel rather than physical one, there’ll still be a home button area at the bottom of the iPhone 8 ’ s display. However, because it’ s all controlled by software, Apple will be able to adjust its size.

2. Face ID is coming

The HomePod leak in August all but confirmed that the iPhone X would have a face-recognizing camera sophisticated enough to detect facial expressions, and let you log in to your phone. Internally, it's known as Pearl.

But tomorrow, it'll probably be called Face ID. How do we know? (Press the play button to play the video.)

3. Face ID will let you pay

Last month, developers couldn't find a single shred of evidence to indicate that you'd use the new face camera to pay for purchases. That would be a little worrying if it's also true -- as rumored -- the new iPhone X will ditch the fingerprint sensor entirely.

But now, iOS developer Jeffrey Grossman has discovered the evidence we've been waiting for: "Unlock iPhone and use Apple Pay with your face instead of a passcode."

How's that for a smoking gun?

4. Animojis

But Apple's new Face ID camera isn't just about security. According to the leak, you'll be able to create "custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions."

And they're called Animoji.

9to5Mac journalist Benjamin Mayo discovered how they work:

And yes, there's a poop animoji. Sir Patrick Stewart will be thrilled.

5. Apple Watch LTE

Two of the most reliable Apple leaksters told us it was coming. Now, a cellular Apple Watch that doesn't require a nearby phone is all but certain -- because iOS developer Steve Troughton-Smith found pictures in the code of not only the watch itself, but also a status screen showing a cellular strength gauge. (It doesn't technically say LTE, you might note.)

iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail

  iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail Apple seems to be making it easier to trade in iPhones through the iPhone Upgrade Program with a new mail-in kit option, as spotted by John Angarano over at the MacRumors forums. Apple launched the iPhone Upgrade Program two years ago alongside the iPhone 6S as an alternative for customers looking to upgrade their phone without being tied to any one carrier. But if you were looking to upgrade your phone to a new model, you had to schedule an appointment in an Apple Store to trade in the old phone, something that seems to finally be changing with the new mail-in kit.

Apple Inc’s AAPL much awaited mega edition iPhone will be called iPhone X while the other two editions will be called iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, respectively. 10 iPhone 8 secrets spilled by Apple ' s superleak . CNET.

Apple ’ s iPhone 8 details appear (well before release date) at a talk with Sharp CEO Jeng-wu Tai. Now we’re prepping for the device that may or may not be made extra-special because of the 10 -year anniversary of the original iPhone’s reveal and release.

Want more?  9to5Mac's Benjamin Mayo discovered the Apple Watch will probably share a phone number with your iPhone -- so you should be able to take calls on the Watch even if you're away from home.

And three tweets from Brazilian journalist Filipe Esposito suggest the new Apple Watch will support file sharing with AirDrop, let you send your location to trusted family members with Find My Friends, and might sometimes suggest that you turn off cellular data to conserve battery life. (That last one sounds like a bummer.)

6. Apple is chopping the status bar in half

If it's true that Apple's iPhone X will have a giant front-facing camera module hanging over the top of its all-screen front -- see a mockup at the top of this post -- Apple would need to split the iPhone's status bar right down the center.

Maybe it would look something like this? (Click the images to enlarge.)

Note the new charging indicator... and see that little dot at the upper right, above the cellular signal bars? It moves when your phone's busy loading a video.

Apple’s AR glasses aren’t coming this week — but you should still be excited

  Apple’s AR glasses aren’t coming this week — but you should still be excited Apple will hardly surprise anyone who’s been following iPhone leaks closely with its Tuesday announcements. Is Apple working on AR glasses? Definitely. But they’ll need a few extra years of development before they hit the public eye.

7. Apple TV 4K

If you've been waiting for an Apple TV powerful enough to send full-resolution 4K video to your 4K TV, it sounds like you'll be in luck:

But you may need quite the internet connection if you want to stream 4K video from Apple.

Sounds like the new Apple TV will come with a new remote as well -- one with haptic force feedback. We'll have to wait and see what that's for.
