Though most people, us included, have been calling it the iPhone 8, there's a good chance Apple will eschew its typical naming conventions given that this phone marks the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone. iPhone X, iPhone Edition, and iPhone Pro have all been posited. But someone leaked the GM (Gold Master, or the final version) of iOS 11 this morning and we suddenly have a whole bunch of things coming out of it.

People love to use different types of animations like stickers, emojis and more to share what they feel or just to compliment someone.

Is it Pennywise? Pa. town sees red balloons floating above sewer grates
A red balloon is the calling card of Pennywise , the sewer-dwelling, child-eating clown in Stephen King's horror novel "It". The Lititz Borough Police Department told CBS News that more than 20 balloons have been recovered around town.

As we draw closer to the iPhone 8's official reveal on Tuesday, September 12th at Apple Park, information about the anticipated device continues to leak online at breakneck pace.

iOS developer Guilherme Rambo demonstrated in a series of Twitter postings how the interface of the new feature will look when you set it up. It will also be used to verify identification for Apple Pay.

The screen is expected to measure 5.8-inches, corner-to-corner with rounded corners. Wireless charging is also expected in the new device. Nevertheless, the patent was just filed in Q2 of this year, which could mean that Apple is now working on putting it to use. Apple too is going over board to ensure the phone turns out to be as special as it can be. One can watch this event on his iPhone, Mac, iPad, Apple TV, or the Edge Browser of the Windows 10 PC. Exactly how the new iPhone cameras will enhance iOS' augmented reality features is also unclear.

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 11's latest leak made known more features of Apple's 10th-anniversary smartphone, which include the Face ID. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung is charging Apple as much as $130 for the iPhone 8 OLED panel. While it's still unclear, Portrait Lighting will reportedly add lighting enhancements to the iPhone's Portrait mode effect that creates DSLR-like depth-of-field photographs. Most recently, Guilherme Rambo unearthed assets which provide us with an interesting look at the Face ID setup process on the iPhone 8.

William and Catherine expecting again
Royal watchers recorded every aside for clues as to what the plans might be. Kate thanked the well-wisher for the present and turned to William.

The changes there aren't expected to be as dramatic as with the flagship "iPhone 8", and as such it was seen as likely that Apple would follow its usual tick-tock nomenclature.
