Face ID in the iPhone X will only recognize one person

FaceID tech is designed to only recognise users when they have both their eyes open and are looking straight at the phone as per Apple

When Craig Federighi, Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering was demoing the new iPhone X's FaceID feature, it failed at the first attempt.

But the killer feature of the new iPhone is that it doesn't unlock with a passcode or with your thumbprint.it uses FACIAL RECOGNITION to unlock for you. The company said the facial data would not be transmitted over the internet where it could be vulnerable to interception. Instead, it boasts a #Facial Recognition System called #Face ID, a technology that uses a 3D scan of the user's face to authenticate and unlock the virtual padlock of the device.

"How will Apple respond to law enforcement requests to access Apple's faceprint data or the Face ID system itself?"

Unlike the biometric data accumulation that other tech giants, including Facebook, do with the intent of building a database, Apple actually doesn't. He wants reassurance that won't ever happen. Meanwhile, the iPhone X touts a so-called "Face ID" authentication system that's "even more convenient than Touch ID".

Apple Inc. shares were trading at $158.96 per share on Thursday morning, down $0.69 (-0.43%).

Face ID uses "TrueDepth" camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognise a face. The latter even has a capability to detect Hollywood-grade masks and won't unlock your device until it sees your real face.

Everton eyeing Jan move for Celtic youngster Anthony Ralston
However, the real reason behind Neymar not swapping shirts is that he'd already agreed to donate it to the Marina Dalglish Appeal. The two exchanged words and refused to shake hands at the end of the match.

At least that's what most people thought when Apple's Craig Federighi went up on stage to give the first official iPhone X demo to millions of viewers. It is possible that these complaints about the iPhone X are due to the fact that people haven't yet tried the phone and hence don't understand the new features.

Maharaj is a bit more skeptical and said only time will tell as there are more hurdles for the technology here in the U.S. However, it is recommended to use fingerprints, patterns, and passwords for functions that require complete security because others can unlock the phone by secretly recording the user's voice or imitating it. It seems these same security precautions are in place for Face ID.

This feature is created to take a 3D face scan that will determine the structure of your face and transform it to a mathematical model for the goal of device authentication and unlocking.

In regards to usability and design, critics say face recognition just isn't as versatile and easy as fingerprint - as was suggested by the embarrassing glitch at the launch of the iPhone X.

That said, none of the systems are flawless yet, as Apple suffered an embarrassing Face ID fail at its very launch event and the Samsung's iris scanner has already been fooled by a bunch of hackers.
