The internet can't stop making fun of the new iPhone X

The internet can't stop making fun of the new iPhone X”

Although the 10th anniversary device included new features, like Face ID and Animoji, jokes about the iPhone X poured in on social media. As Apple explained to Yahoo, the reason behind this was due to the fact that multiple people handled the iPhone X before the live demo. As you know, facial recognition systems still aren't ideal and frequently have issues recognizing the faces of POC.

CNet also points to an ACLU Q&A on the topic of facial recognition systems in which they noted, "Once installed, this kind of a surveillance system rarely remains confined to its original objective".

Ahead of the launch, there were persistent rumors of both production issues as well as production push-outs; indeed, a report from The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) claims that Apple's failed attempt to integrate Touch ID into the display of the new device pushed the iPhone X production ramp-up by about a month. The internet has been abuzz ever since with concerns about how well this software is really going to work, whether it's really as secure (or moreso) than Touch ID or a password for unlocking one's phone, and predictions about how it might be tricked or otherwise abused. Face ID projects more than 30,000 invisible dots to create a precise depth map of your face. Face ID can recognize you in a dark environment. Your photos do not work. This technology came out decades ago. The technology tells your face from others'. "Apple has stated that it used more than one billion images in developing the Face ID algorithm".

However, Samsung recommends iris recognition or fingerprint recognition for the flawless level of security. It asked for a pass code after failing to authenticate too many times. Half an hour of charge will ensure your iPhone lasts half of the day.

The iris is a tissue located around the pupil and is formed when a person is young and its shape does not change through a person's lifetime.

When activated the Emergency SOS feature will send a message to the user's saved emergency contacts as well as sending information on their location. The iris is recognized by a front infrared camera, so iris recognition is not affected by surrounding environments. This is based on a comprehensive analysis of a user's voice waveform, unique pronunciation, pitches, accents, and speaking speed. He ended up having to use what looked like a backup phone.
