The Golden Master build of iOS 11 spread like wildfire on Reddit, and apparently, it is revealed a lot about the upcoming iPhone series.

According to 9to5Mac, who claim to have received the leaked software from another source, the latest upgrade promises exciting new features, the first of which is the new portrait lighting mode supporting
“Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light.”
This aims to enhance the camera flash to provide better lighting scenarios for the enthusiasts. Besides this, Apple will also provide higher resolution video option going as far as 1080p HD at 240 fps.
And brace yourself for a whole new world of 3D-generated emojis which will tie up with facial tracking software to create customized characters.

Other hardware bump up include the addition of the True Tone Display in the OLED iPhone X. True Tone was initially introduced with the 9.7-inch iPad last year and provides the ability to adjust the white balance of the display automatically, making your reading experience even better.
But the greatest shock would the murdur of the iconic Home button in the iPhoneX, with the power button getting new functionalities like summoning Siri and calling up Apple Pay cards.
The pictures of the Home button-free display revealed a multifunctional space at the bottom.
The leak also contained the first public image of the new LTE Apple Watch Series 3, which seems to have cellular capacity as well.
