Back in 2015, the tech giant Apple  along with the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus introduced its Live Photos feature that discharges numerous frames at once to create a gif-like image. Initially meant for viewing in small screens, the feature will be made obtainable on big screens, which are your MacOS devices very shortly.

For the developers, the tech giant has introduced 'LivePhotosKit' JavaScript API that allows them set in Live Photos on to the web. "Live Photos allows you to relive your favourite memories with movement and sound. Take advantage of the new Live Photos API and let users enjoy these moments in your web app," says Apple in a statement.

However, the company has shared the code samples on its devoted developer website and has made the API available on NPM. On a similar note, the images of the supposed iPhone 8 'dummy' leaked online. The images were shared by a Twitter user @VenyaGeskin1 shows the front, side and back panels of the CNC model of the handset.

Further, it is quite important adding that neither the front nor the back panel of the handset is seen with a TouchID fingerprint sensor. This further strengthens the rumors that the smartphone may mark a display with fingerprint sensor entrenched.

With the front and back are covered with glass, all four sides are covered with refined metal rims, which is said to approach in black colour by the time it launches.

This will make the smartphone completely black in colour.

Well, that’s not all; the giant is also setting up to strengthen the feature list of the rumored smartphone with 3D technology. While it is ascertained that it might be postponed because of supply restraints of custom-ordered components such as OLED display, 3D sensing camera, fingerprint modules and more.
