Rumors: FaceTime in group on iOS 11, Touch ID in two stages and facial recognition on “iPhone 8”?

Believe it or not, today's rumor is something that has been expected since 2010: according to (Google Translate) the Israeli website The Verifier (yes, a source with no history in rumors), the iOS 11 finally bring to the FaceTime support group calls.

The reason we chose to bring a rumor from a strange source here to the site because it makes perfect sense and something that has become quite popular in recent times is the example of Facebook Messenger, which also implemented support for this in the past month.

In the case of FaceTime, the limit would be for up to five people per call which is more than enough, in my opinion (if it turns into a mess only). And the support for this is also supported in the FaceTime app on macOS 10.13, of course.

The problem that we will have to wait until June is still likely to have confirmation (or not) of this rumor. at that time, at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), that Apple usually announces all the news that I see in its future operating systems.

On a related note, the famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (from KGI Securities) once again spoke about the "IPhone 8".

The information he shared this time corroborates part of what the analyst Timothy Arcuri (from Cowen & Company) recently said: new sensor for Touch ID with greater sensitivity and the possibility of being hidden behind the screen, flexible OLED panel and some new technology of facial recognition (possibly iris) that could be attached to the fingerprint for a double check.

We'll see what comes next. ?
