Apple’s first Face ID demo failed, but it wasn’t Face ID’s fault – The Verge

Moments after Phil Schiller got done extolling the accuracy of the iPhone’s X brand new, ultra-sophisticated Face ID authentication system, Apple’s software chief Craig Federighi came onstage to show how easy and fast it is to actually use. Unfortunately, Federighi’s initial attempt to unlock the onstage demo iPhone X was unsuccessful. The passcode screen popped up. He then picked up a second iPhone X and the feature worked successfully.

For all we know, this was a one-off fluke that’s not indicative of how well Face ID will actually perform for consumers. In fact, it doesn’t seem to be an error by the company’s replacement for Touch ID at all. The passcode screen that Federighi got on that first iPhone X said “Your passcode is required to enable Face ID.” This is the same screen that would come up on existing iPhones after a device has been restarted — or simply after several hours have passed without authenticating through the lock screen. This is a security precaution introduced with Touch ID that will clearly carry onward with Face ID.

Still, it was an embarrassing presentation moment that will probably burn itself into the memories of Apple’s executive team for a long time. Whoever should’ve had that phone ready and set for the stage… didn’t. It should’ve been smooth and taken a second, and that’s not what happened. Rather, those couple awkward seconds were a very noticeable hitch during the event. For its first iPhone without a home button, Apple wanted to make this feel like a seamless and even more secure transition for consumers and, well, now they’ll have to wait until November to see how well Face ID does or doesn’t work.

Hopefully once you train your iPhone X to understand your face, it’ll work every time in a variety of conditions as Schiller claimed — so long as you’ve entered your passcode at some point that day.

The iPhone X

Apple shows iPhone X, its biggest iPhone redesign in a decade, starts at $999

It’s pronounced iPhone 10

There’s no home button

The iPhone X is Apple’s most high-end iPhone of the year. It offers a complete redesign from the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and was introduced in addition to the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

It features a new 5.8-inch OLED display that’s more colorful than the LCD screens Apple used in earlier iPhones. Apple is branding it the “Super Retina Display.” The screen runs almost top to bottom and side to side, too, something Apple has never done before.

Apple said OLED displays come with trade-offs compared to its Retina Displays, but that its Super Retina Display supports HDR, offers the best color accuracy on the market and 3D Touch support.

There’s no more home button. You swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return home. That gesture also allows a user to multitask – swipe up and pause, and you can multitask and switch between apps. Users can switch between apps by swiping along the bottom of the screen, too. Users can call up Siri by saying “Hey Siri” or by pressing the side button.

Since there’s no home button, Touch ID no longer exists on the front of the phone. Apple will allow users to unlock the iPhone X with their faces using a new feature called Face ID. Apple uses an infrared camera, a front-camera and other sensors to detect a user’s face.

When you look at your iPhone, it will detect your face and will automatically unlock, even in the dark. Apple says it uses neural networks to create a mathematical model of your face and then compares that in real-time, invisibly, to make sure it’s actually you. The A11 Bionic chip has a built-in neural engine to process your face, Apple said.

Apple said you can’t spoof Face ID with photographs or even professionally made masks, which it said it had folks in Hollywood design to help enhance security. The phone won’t unlock if your eyes are closed or if you’re looking away.

Apple said Touch ID is the gold standard for consumer protection and that there’s a 1 in 50,000 chance that someone can randomly unlock your iPhone with their fingerprint. With Face ID, it’s now 1 in a million. It also works with Apple Pay, you just look at it to authenticate, and third-party apps such as Mint, 1Password and E-Trade.

Face ID can be used to create special 3-D emoji that share similar facial reactions to you. The feature is called Animoji, and you can control them with your face thanks to its ability to map more than 50 facial muscles. Animoji can be sent inside the Messages app.

Like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X supports wireless charging and is water-resistant.

The iPhone X has dual 12-megapixel sensors just like in iPhone 8 Plus and a newer telephoto lens that lets in more light. The front and rear cameras support portrait mode, which allows users to take professional-looking photos by blurring the background. It also has dual optical image stabilization for both lenses, which helps prevent blur while moving and in low-light. A new Quad LED True Tone flash also improves pictures shot in the dark.

The iPhone X will be available in space gray and silver. 64GB and 256GB models will be available, starting at $999. Orders start Oct. 27 and shipments start Nov. 3.
