The software update, which will be available for download next week, should help improve the performance of iPhone 8 models with a Snapdragon 820 processor and support for Apple’s TrueDepth camera technology, according to the report.iPhone 8 will also be the first iPhone to feature a 5.5-inch display, and it will support wireless charging as well as Apple Pay, Apple said.

Apple announced in March that it was changing the iPhone lineup with the introduction of the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, and iPhone 8.

Apple is also reportedly working on the next iPhone that will be the iPhone X, which was announced in late March.
