Apple accidentally announced what the iPhone 8 is going to be like and I’m officially scared of technology
The day someone comes up with the technology to erase exes from our life — like Lacuna Inc. in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind — is the day I’ll finally be okay with technology taking over the world. But until then, I literally cannot trust it anymore.
First it was front facing cameras on smart phones, and then it was Siri yelling “WHAT,” every time we say “Are you serious?” in conversation with our friends. And now? Things have gotten even worse.
Recently, Apple put out the firmware for its upcoming HomePod smart speaker, and techies everywhere began digging deeper in hopes of uncovering more information about what the company has in store. Of course, they prevailed, and now Apple has found itself in the awkward position of having its iPhone 8 designs outed before they were ready.
iPhone developer Steven Troughton-Smith took to twitter with the first announcements of what we can expect, like infrared face-recognition unlock, for example.

Welcome Aboard the Axiom.
