    Just upgraded to iOS 11 and despite my unreasonable hopes, there are no lighting effects for the 7+. I do not see how this should be exclusive to 8+ and X (from a technology feasibility standpoint), so it appears to be another hardware exclusive item to drive sales.

    The animated emojis I could understand, given that the front camera uses 3D mapping that isn't present in the other phones. But the lack of lighting effects for 7+ is a disappointment...

    Still, there's infltr which basically compensates with a million other options, and uses the 3D mapping, so I'll likely stick with a $2 app, as opposed to a $1000 upgrade. ...Though I won't be getting those animated poop emojis...

    They said in thekwynote that it was for the 8+/X only. Yes, the A10 could probably handle it. You’ll have to jailbreak, as I don’t see Apple adding it.

    They needed to keep some software features to be on 8 and X exclusively for people to buy.

    Actually, I'm a little irked that 8+ users are getting it too. They'll have a whole month+ to post sexy photos on Tinder before the elite X users.
