iPhone 8 face recognition might be more powerful than expected

Microsoft and its fans may boast that it was using face recognition, via the still young Windows Hello, long before Apple, but the iPhone 8 might have a few things over Microsoft’s and Intel’s relatively older technology.

Today’s iPhone 8 leak is leather

The images you're about to look at show an iPhone 8 casing with a leather exterior. The details on the back and within are exceedingly convincing - embossing and tiny bits of text that usually only show up in legit, Apple-made pieces of hardware.
