Face ID is disabled after two unsuccessful attempts, requiring the user to enter the device passcode in order to be re-enabled, as described in Apple's developer beta documentation, implying that Federighi was unable to authenticate the first device.

Nothing at all, he's simply trolling for attention. Treat him like an overworked dad disappointed in his Arts Major son... ignore him.

Maybe. Twice I've posted in one article, and the comment posted in another. That could have happened here.

If the Apple consortium can bid more than the Western Digital consortium, then they may have a shot at this. Apple is threatening Western Digital with ending their status as an Apple supplier if they outbid Apple, and Western Digital claims veto rights to any sale. It will be interesting to see who is the bigger bully. We have already seen some of the opening moves in the Apple vs. Qualcomm debacle, and that could also go either way. Is Apple a big enough bully to beat all the other bullies? If they are, I will be just a bit frightened.

Apple wants everyone to buy their expensive phone while they themselves buy everything on the cheap.

However, the joke is on those that paid the high pay but feeling insecure about their purchase so they have a need to leash out.

Poor sob!

I don't know how much Toshibas is actually worth, do you? Western Digital is willing to pay more than Apple so if you are Toshiba shouldn't you be able to go with WD?

Apple Fans are so brainwashed that they don't even have the ability to recognize this.

Apple's open threat to Western Digital is a disgraceful behaviour only their sheeple groupie failed to recognise this.

Indeed apple made threats to Western Digital, if they would proceed with the purchase of Toshiba Memory.
apple said we are not buying chips anymore.
If i owned WD i would show apple a big fat middle finger!
apple is a big disgrace!
