While we're not expecting any major phone news to come out of WWDC (aside from the possible appearance of the iPhone SE 2), all sorts of iPhone rumours are hitting the street as Apple's annual developer conference nears. The rumours range from some plausible changes and upgrades to some very silly-looking new colours.

Last spring, Apple broke tradition by launching three iPhones instead of its usual two. But even more than that, Apple's bold $1579 handset had a weird name and new facial recognition tech that no one had really seen before. Now, reports from CNBC and others are saying the iPhone X is going to get killed off later this year, and people seem to be panicking.

When the iPhone X eventually arrives in November it will come loaded with a futuristic camera module that, if all goes right, should let you securely open your phone with little more than a glance. The promise is enticing -- a perfect blend of convenience and security that's hard to come by in mobile computing devices. After an impressive demo of the tech on Tuesday, we're left with a glaring question: If it works as intended, then what happens to Touch ID?

Apple is rolling out facial recognition to unlock its new iPhone X, as has been rumoured for months and confirmed in leaks over the weekend.
