ABC Australia’s Breakfast TV show mangles Apple Face ID on iPhone X
ABC Australia’s morning breakfast news program was just talking about Apple’s Face ID on the iPhone X, and were saying very silly things.
One question posed to Apple was whether someone could take your phone and put it front of your sleeping face to unlock the iPhone X. Of course, Apple explained in its presentation that you needed to have your eyes open for the system to unlock - you needed active looking at the phone for it to unlock.
Well, Apple says Face ID has a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of some random person coming up to your phone and being able to unlock it.
There’s also the rumours that Apple simply couldn’t get Touch ID to work under the glass in time, and there’s no reason why future iPhones can’t also deliver a Touch ID system that works under the glass.
Touch ID is also still preserved for the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus - no-one is forcing anyone to but the iPhone X. So, thank you ABC for your uninformed iPhone X Face ID inanity, spoken for cheap laughs.
