Users can drag the thin menu bar into the middle of the screen to open the iPhone 8’s multitasking panel.

Apple will also explain how the new 3D recognition sensors work. The 3D sensors might be capable of generating a “facial ID” that can be used to unlock the device or verify payments that require a biometric security. The company will also show off the dual-lens camera of the iPhone 8 that could surpass the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.

iOS 11 features

Apple will obviously announce its new software on the event, such as #iOS 11 and WatchOS 4. The new operating system will include an improved Siri smart assistant and Apple Maps. The iOS 11 will improve the iPhone’s keyboard. It will also allow the users to manage the Control Center. The Apple operating system will also make iPads even better at multitasking, and notifications are going to be simplified.
