Apple released the first build of iOS 11 to developers earlier this month and has subsequently released the second developer build as well as the first public beta. Now that the latest iOS version has been out in the wild for nearly a month, users are starting to discover little things that could offer some hints as to what the iPhone 8 will include…

On Twitter this evening, designer Tyler Hansen broke down some of the iOS 11 features that hint at rumored iPhone 8 changes such as the nearly bezel-less screen, OLEd, AR, and more. While many details regarding the iPhone 8 are all-but-confirmed at this point, it’s nice to see some corroboration in Apple’s software.

Interface tweaks – OLED display, nearly bezel-less, & more

One thing you’ll notice in iOS 11 is that the interface is significantly more rounded. For instance, if you use 3D Touch on a Control Center icon, the interface you’ll see is rounded. In fact, the entire Control Center interface features softer, rounded corners now.

While we still don’t get an official dark mode with iOS 11, there are elements of the new interface that have been made significantly darker. For instance, the Calculator app has been completely overhauled to be both dark and rounded. In the past, the Calculator app was brightly colored, which wouldn’t be taking full advantage of the OLED screen technology.
