IPhone X Face ID has just had some cool extra features revealed

IPhone X Face ID has just had some cool extra features revealed”

Adding to clear the ambiguity over Face ID security, he spoke about how facial structure can be changed through plastic surgery and the difference hair colour can make.

In terms of user privacy, Federighi assured that Apple does not collect any customer data when they enrol in Face ID ad that the Cupertino giant will release a security white paper about Face ID. It remains on the user's device and is never sent to the cloud for training data. It is important to note that Face ID is not like the facial recognition feature of Android rather it is something much more improved than that. Federighi said: "If you grip the buttons on both sides of the phone when [you] hand it over, it will temporarily disable Face ID".

As Touch ID before it, Face ID will default back to passcode if there have been five failed attempts to Face ID, or if the device has been rebooted.

The mechanism works by projecting over 30,000 infrared dots onto a face and creating a 3D mesh of it, then comparing it to the stored facial recognition information.

Face ID allows users to unlock their iPhone with their face.

As Federighi says: "Most sunglasses let through enough IR light that Face ID can see your eyes even when the glasses appear to be opaque". As such it has a cool few features you might not have heard about.

"Honestly, we're just all counting the days until customers can get their hands on these". Because I think just like with Touch ID, initially people thought oh, 'Apple's done something that's totally not going to work and I'm not a believer and I'm not gonna use this feature'. They have integrated numerous exciting features on it to make it highly attractive and the Face ID is one of them definitely.
