Is your group chat a little dry at the minute? Fret not. All of that is about to change with Apple’s new iOS 11 update. On Friday Apple ‘leaked’ new information about the next iOS update on Reddit under a top secret URL.
Tech fans are buzzing about the news and we’ve gotta admit the update actually looks pretty cool. The new iPhone and iOS update will feature loads of incredible things including FaceID and animated emojis! That’s right. ANIMATED. EMOJIS.
Here’s what else Apple decided to share with fans about the next iPhone and iOS update.
1. There will be no iPhone 7S

According to Reddit, Apple won’t be brining out a 7S line. Instead they’re skipping straight to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X.
2. The iPhone X will look completely different
The brand new iPhone X will be bigger and sleeker. Also, there won’t be the usual home button on the front of the screen.
3. The new models will include FaceID

The iPhone X will feature FaceID. It’s a step up from the fingerprint ID that Apple have used on previous models and looks all kinds of cool.
4. The new camera lighting will up your selfie game
iPhone 8 True tone display is great, but will it be 120Hz?

As well as True Tone Display, Apple’s latest products are introducing camera light settings. The new portrait lighting allows you to use contour, natural, stage and studio light.

Apple leaked a few examples of the new animated emojis and let’s be honest, they’re 11/10 adorable. We can SO see ourselves flooding our group chats with them.
