Video shows how the Apple iPhone X Face ID will work
Developers have been digging into the leaked Gold Master of iOS 11, looking for as many tidbits that they can find. One such developer, Guilherme Rambo, has found some information pertaining to the Face ID setup process for the Apple iPhone X. This is the tenth anniversary model that will feature an OLED panel. Apple was unable to embed fingerprint scanner Touch ID under the OLED screen. At the same time, it will be doing away with the home button. As a result, Apple had to resort to plan B. That apparently calls for the use of a front-facing camera that will use 3D scanning to recognize users' faces.
With this facial recognition system, the camera will be able to unlock the iPhone X and verify identification for Apple Pay. In other words, any application that requires Touch ID can employ facial recognition instead. You might recall that Apple analyst extraordinaire Ming-Chi Kuo called this set up "Revolutionary," when he told KGI Securities clients about it back in February.
To set up Face ID, iPhone X users will take selfies of their face from various angles. Apple's purchase of tech firm RealFace probably played a huge part in this new feature. The Israeli company's technology is said to be highly accurate when it comes to facial recognition, and can confirm a match in "millionths" of a second. The software will internally produce a 3D map of a user's face, which adds an extra layer of security for the phone. RealFace's tech is so sensitive, that it can correctly identify identical twins.
Check out what reportedly is the Face ID UI in action by clicking on the video at the top of this story. After a one-time setup, users should not have to go through this process every time they want to unlock the phone. And according to Guilherme, there is a haptic feedback when the shutter button on the camera UI is pressed.
