The iPad Pro lineup has a lot to learn from the iPhone X, and if the rumor mill is any indicator, the early tablet refresh this year might indeed adopt quite a few traits from last year’s flagship iPhone.
Back in November, Apple released a few different advertisements that promoted Animoji and Apple’s newest biometric security measure introduced with the iPhone X, Face ID.
When Apple debuted Face ID earlier this year, along with the TrueDepth camera system in the iPhone X, there were questions regarding support for multiple faces. Namely, would the smartphone support it?
Apple went all-in with a brand new biometric security measure for the iPhone X, adopting the TrueDepth camera system and launching Face ID to secure a device.
Last month, security research company Bkav managed to fool Face ID using a special 3D printed mask. This time around, to prove that it was not a one-off incident, the cybersecurity company has uploaded a more detailed video where they again show Face ID being faced by the second version of their 3D printed mask.
The iPhone X has plenty of new features baked in, especially with the new biometric security measure Face ID and the TrueDepth camera system on the front of the handset.
Face ID works great for most people out there. But clearly, there are edge cases. From issues with bright light to twins tricking Face ID. In one case, a kid was able to unlock their parent’s iPhone X using Face ID.
Finally putting Face ID and Touch ID to the test in real world purchasing scenarios, it all comes down to preference.
Some parts of the iPhone X are just intuitive. Like holding your phone up to unlock it with Face ID. Others, like accessing the Control Center or using the App Switcher or force quitting apps, aren’t. Follow the tips below to quickly master iPhone X’s new user interface.
The verdict is in: Face ID is awesome. Yes, it’s slower than Touch ID but when it works, it’s almost invisible. In a way, it as a magical quality to it. But it’s still a first generation product (remember how slow first-generation Touch ID was), and it has the quirks and bugs that any first-generation technology has.
