The camera in the iPhone 7 Plus was deemed the ‘future of photography’ – but the technology set for the 10th-anniversary is said to be ‘revolutionary’.
An analyst has revealed that Apple is planning on implementing a front-facing camera with an infrared module that senses 3D space in the iPhone 8 handset.
This system could be used for a range of applications including, snapping a selfie that would be added to an augmented world, facial recognition or iris scanning.

The latest rumor regarding Apple’s iPhone suggests it will have a front-facing camera and infrared module that senses 3D space.
The sensors in the phone are said to detect the location and depth of objects around it.
The complete 3D system would send invisible IR light signals out from the phone and then wait for them to hit objects and return using the 1.4 megapixel IR receiver.
The camera would be used for a range of applications including, placing the user’s face on a character in a game, facial recognition, iris scanning and overall improved selfies.
