HomePod's firmware suggests higher quality video recording on the iPhone 8

iOS developers continue to look through the HomePod's firmware to see if they can find any more clues on the iPhone 8. Portuguese news site iHelp appears to have found codes related to the iPhone 8's video recording capabilities. 

The codes suggest that the iPhone 8's front and rear cameras can support 4K video recording at 60fps. The iPhone 7/7 Plus currently support 4K video recording at 30fps for the rear camera and the front camera is limited to 1080p.

In addition, the 4K videos will also support Apple's new HEVC file format. HEVC file format is one of the two new camera formats introduced in iOS 11 where it can help you save up to 50% storage space without any loss in quality. 

The HomePod's firmware has become a treasure cove of information on the iPhone 8 as codes reveal the front design of the device, the use of Face ID, the absence of an on-screen fingerprint sensor, a virtual home button, a "tap-to-wake" feature, and a powerful and interactive status bar.
