Two days after the firmware iOS 11 GM hit the network, almost all the information about new models iPhone became known, but the developers still continue to study the firmware code in search of new information about iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

It became known that there will be no Touch ID on iPhone X. Many wondered how the new phone would work Apple Pay. Jeffrey Grossman found information that users will be able to confirm a payment by double-pressing the sleep / wake button after using Face ID. The code also says that Face ID will appear on iPad later.

And it appears that Face ID occurs automatically but you double click the side button to confirm payment

We also found information about the A11 processor, which Apple uses for the entire line iPhone 2017. It will be a 6-core processor with four energy-efficient 'Mistral' cores and two 'Monsoon' cores with full power. All six cores will work independently of each other. The new processor will not be similar to the Fusion used in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

In terms of RAM, developer Steve Troughton-Smith confirmed that iPhone 8 will have 2GB of RAM, while iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus will each have 3GB . The small iPhone 8 will have less memory because its display resolution is lower than the other two models.

Just to clarify on the A11: it's two high-power Monsoon cores and four low-power Mistral cores, all independently addressable. No Fusion

The code iOS 11 GM says that new models will have wireless charging, but there is almost no information about its work. It is rumored that Apple will add support for Qi wireless charging to the new phones, but it is not yet known if they can be charged with third-party Qi chargers.

Finally, iPhone X will have a 12MP main camera and a 7MP front camera. The main one will be able to record video in 4K at 60 frames per second and in Full HD at 240 frames per second. We expected the front-facing camera to add 4K recording too, but that won't happen.

At the moment, almost all details are known about iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus except prices. Over the weekend, it became known about the official names of the three models, new features like Animoji, Portrait Lighting, etc.
