We’re just over a week away from Apple’s September 12th media event, meaning we’ll know all there is about the highly anticipated iPhone 8, a.k.a. iPhone Edition or iPhone X. In the meantime, we continue to see hints about how the smartphone will work with its edge-to-edge display and lack of a physical Home button. The latest is that the device’s sleep/wake button, found on the right side, may be used for activating Siri.

Guilherme Rambo, an iOS developer in Brazil, revealed on Twitter this weekend that he discovered something in Apple’s source code suggesting a new gesture to trigger Siri by holding the sleep/wake or lock button. Rambo didn’t specify the exact code that references this, and it’s not clear how such a gesture would differ from or be used alongside a long press to turn the phone off.
