I didn't view it that way, but I can understand why you might have and I have removed the link.

Easy facial recognition is going to be a big deal and it will change life for people who have to carry small hardware.

All hardware details of the iPhone X, iPhone 7S, and iOS 11 were leaked at the same time.

Is facial recognition secure enough though? More secure or less secure than fingerprint recognition?

P.S. phone looks dope

I didn't see any details in the link, just a way to sign up for an investor report with the details. Did I miss something?

I think that the main point is that it'll be easier and more reliable.

Secure...if it's security you're after, you'll disable both TouchID and FaceID, and use a 13-digit code. :-)

In iOS, you can choose to disable TouchID and FaceID very quickly, through a function of Emergency Call.

I know how this works in iOS 11, but I have not used it in the 10.3.3 version. In iOS 11, you'd hit the side button five times quickly. Then cancel it. The two alternate password methods will be disabled, and you will have to enter your long password.

This keeps people from forcing your face or finger to open the device.

A nice deal is that the iPhone will be able to tell when you are looking at it, so it won't blank out.

Good to hear the god awful white bezel wont being making into production. It gave the iphone 8 a early 2000's look or resembled a Otter box case. Still disappointed that the actual useable screen space will only be 5.1 inches.

If that's all you're doing, you do not need an iPhone X. :-)

I'm using my 7 Plus as a MacBook substitute these days, and it works surprisingly well.

Do I need to bump the biometrics thread again? Do you really want to venture down that path with this thread?

Another new Apple device that has about zero innovative features...or at least ones that won't be done significantly cheaper by an Android phone in about 2-3 months.

But, you do get to pay a lot more for a device and O/S that's essentially a nice looking prison, so there is that.

I've never owned a gold iPhone because of the white bezel.

There's no bezel on the iPhone X, of course, but I believe that on the iPhone 8 (former 7S), blush gold (copper?), silver and gold will still have a white bezel.

Looks great and I'm glad Apple is fixing their phone's terrible screen to size ratio problem.

So how well will this work in the dark?

This seems like a big step back to me. Partially because this feels like a last minute band-aid thrown in because Apple wasn't able to get a working fingerprint sensor embedded into the screen in time for release. From what I've read, they are still working on this technology and may have it ready for the next generation, likely putting this "new superior solution" out to pasture in the process.

I've already noticed that my 7 Plus is about as quick as my MacBook Pro that's a couple of years old.

The iPhone X supposedly produces Geekbench scores that put it ahead of the very newest 13" MacBook Pro machines.

0_0

I'm willing to concede that it's not for everybody.

But I'm also willing to admit that if I know the text bubble is going to be green instead of blue, I'm more careful with the conversation.

It's very annoying not to be able to send a PDF or XLS in a large group like you can with the blue bubble Apple people.
