The update HomePod posted on Apple a couple of weeks ago inadvertently revealed a lot of details about iPhone 8. Upon closer inspection of the update, it was also discovered that Apple is working on a new Apple TV with 4K support.
In addition to 4K, the fifth generation Apple TV will support HDR10 and Dolby Vision, which are rarely found in such devices. The exit Apple TV with 4K is logical, as prices for 4K and HDR TVs have dropped dramatically lately.

Since the next one Apple TV will support 4K, it is likely that it will have more powerful hardware and faster Wi-Fi.
In addition, careful study of the update HomePod has led to the discovery of new information about face recognition at iPhone 8: it will work even when the device is lying on a horizontal surface. The upgrade code states that this feature will be configurable, but it should be available to all users. There is also information that facial recognition can be used by third-party security applications, just like the fingerprint scanner. If there is still no fingerprint scanner on iPhone 8, ensuring the operation of the face scanner in third-party applications is necessary.
This year, the main information about iPhone 8 was leaked by itself Apple due to the update HomePod, so there is no reason to doubt its reliability. The update code has already revealed that iPhone 8 will have a 'notch' display, facial recognition, 4K recording at 60fps, wake-up on tap, 3x Retina display and more.
