Face ID is Apple’s next big thing, in terms of security, and it’s one of the benchmark features for the upcoming flagship iPhone X.
iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know!
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are all set to go up for pre-order on September 15 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time, while the iPhone X will go up for pre-orders on October 27. Apart from the huge difference in their availability, there is also a huge difference in the price and feature set of the three devices.
When Apple unveiled Face ID, they billed the software as the next big step for device security, doing what they could to sell it as a better alternative to Touch ID — which it was replacing on this year’s flagship iPhone.
The iPhone X is tomorrow’s iPhone, available today. The iPhone 8 is yesterday’s iPhone with upgraded internals. If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, you might be wondering which new iPhone is right for you. This time, the choice isn’t as simple as which screen size you want. You need to choose between three iPhones, six pricing tiers and whether you prefer the smartphone of the present or the smartphone from the future.
We all know that Apple doesn’t have all the time in the world to show us every feature during the Apple Event. But, while some of the iPhone X features just didn’t make the cut, others were definitely avoided. Let’s take a look at what we’ve discovered, whether good or bad, since yesterday’s Apple Event.
Face ID is the highlight of the iPhone X and it is bound to get the attention of everyone, with many consumers having questions about how it works, its advantages, disadvantages, and more. Now, the late-night show Conan hosted by Conan O’Brien has taken a dig at some of the questions consumers have surrounding Face ID.
The moment all us Apple enthusiasts had been for over a year finally went by yesterday, as Apple’s September event unpacked several new hardware products. Chief among those was the tenth-anniversary iPhone, aptly named the iPhone X (pronounced iPhone 10).
The iPhone X is Apple’s flagship smartphone for the next one year and takes on heavyweights from Samsung, namely the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and the Galaxy Note 8.
The new iPhone X (pronounced “iPhone ten”) looks nothing like any iPhone we’re familiar with. It’s almost all screen, there’s no Home button and Touch ID has been replaced with Face ID.
Update: Apple has issued a statement on the entire situation to Yahoo, confirming that Face ID failed to recognize Craig Federighi’s face since the iPhone X was handled by a lot of people before being set up for the demo.
When Apple took the wraps off the iPhone X yesterday, the entire Apple fanbase collectively gasped and sighed when the Face ID demonstration failed on stage. There have been several theories floating around since then talking about how Apple might not be ready for a feature like this. Safe to say that most of these stories put a negative spin on the whole thing.
