Apple says Face ID didn't actually fail during its iPhone X event

Apple says Face ID didn't actually fail during its iPhone X event

If you want to ensure that you can secure yourself an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, you NEED to register with MOBILES, as they have plans for most networks and you'll be first in line once the deals are released.

Starbucks' wireless charging pads are getting updated to support the iPhone X and iPhone 8, as reported by Chris Davies at SlashGear, who investigated the issue.

"While I am encouraged by the steps that Apple states it has taken to implement the system responsibly, the addition of this new technology to the iPhone has serious privacy implications", Franken wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday. TrueDepth stems from Apple's 2013 acquisition of 3D sensing company PrimeSense, which developed the 3D sensor used in the original Xbox Kinect from Microsoft.

Al Franken of Minnesota chose to put several of them directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook, a day after the company announced that its iPhone X would unlock with Face ID. You can the INSANE A11 chipset, which will wipe the floor with everything once it arrives, an updated camera, and FACE ID.

However, the security feature did not work as planned when senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi tried to demonstrate Face ID live on stage yesterday.

The built in chip that controls Face ID is built with a neural engine, allowing it to execute 600 billion operations per second.

"Not to get too dystopic but Face ID is the normalization of facial recognition tech", University of California-Davis law school professor Elizabeth Joh noted today on Twitter.

"People were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time and didn't realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face", the Apple rep reportedly said in a statement. The home button is also gone, and users instead tap the device to wake it up. Pre-ordering for both devices will start Friday, and the phones will be available in stores beginning September 22.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone X series of phones are now official, following a very long-winded keynote speech direct from Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino. It's also an HDR display with 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. In a letter sent to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Franken raised concerns that Apple could use the "faceprints" collected by FaceID "to benefit other sectors of its business, sell it to third parties for surveillance purposes, or receive law enforcement requests to access it facial recognition system - eventual uses that may not be contemplated by Apple customers". The 32 GB version starts at $179, while the 64 GB model is $199 and up.
