Apple iPhone 8 models enter mass production, likely to launch on time
NEW DELHI: Reports from earlier this year claimed that the upcoming Apple iPhone models are likely to delayed, with some even hinted at November-December launch. However, reports that came recently contradicted these claims and said that that the smartphones will be launched at their usual time frame but may hit the shelves a little later. Now, it is being said that Apple has started mass producing the Apple iPhone 8, indicating that the devices might not be delayed at all. 
As per a noted tipster @OnLeaks, Apple has started mass production of the upcoming iPhone models. “Right on time! As expected, #iPhone8 mass production just started what means first genuine components should therefore start leaking soon…,” he tweeted.

This indirectly means that the handset may hit the shelves in major markets, or at least the first wave of countries in September and October itself. The tipster adds that because the mass production has started, the number of leaks showing ‘genuine components’ might start showing up soon.

A decent amount of information has already been revealed about the upcoming iPhone 8, courtesy the new HomePod firmware released by Apple. The latest piece of information once again comes from the firmware, courtesy a developer named Guilherme Rambo.

Rambo says that the upcoming iPhone, which is being tipped as the ‘iPhone 8’, could sport something called the ‘SmartCam’. Although there is no confirmation as to what exactly the feature will do, the developer says that the option indicates automatic scene selection software, something similar to Intelligent Auto mode present in the Sony Xperia handsets.

The ‘SmartCam’ option further mentions several scenes such as Baby, Bright Stage, Document, Fireworks, Foliage among others. This means that the camera will look for these subjects in the image and will adjust the exposure, ISO and focus accordingly.

Another code reference from the HomePod firmware indicates that iPhone 8 might also let users use Apple Pay with face recognition security.
