Apple struggling to get Face ID tech in iPhone X

26 October 2017

Apple has allegedly told suppliers they can reduce the accuracy of its face recognition technology to speed up manufacturing of the iPhone X, reports Bloomberg.

As stated above, Apple has denied that they've changed the accuracy requirements for components within the iPhone X Face ID system.

But it could be a while before iPhone X customers get their hands on the flagship device.

Indonesia urges explanation as general denied United States entry
Nurmantyo will not attend the conference unless this clarification is received, the military said. Nevertheless, McKee did not elaborate as to why Nurmantyo could not enter the USA last weekend.

"Face ID is a powerful and secure authentication system that's incredibly easy and intuitive to use", an Apple spokesperson said Wednesday.

He added, "For some reason, the iPhone X is going to be the first iPhone I didn't - on day one - upgrade to".

Apple's iPhone X is rumored to be hard to manufacture, with a lot of reports pointing to production problems with the front-facing depth-sensing camera. Consumers may be holding out, but if they want to get their hands on the iPhone X, it may just be hard. While it is the standard time for past iPhones, the new levels of complexity on the iPhone X made the timeline "aggressive", according to an unnamed source who spoke with Bloomberg. The major problem is Face ID and the spares it needs to work. "However, the iPhone 8, with only 1% of the market after one month, is tracking significantly lower than the iPhone 7 (3.6%), iPhone 6S (3.4%) and the iPhone 6 (5.8%) after one month". Sharp and LG Innotek are other companies that have also struggled completing this task, with only 20% of the technology being usable off the assembly line.

New BRIGHT Trailer Makes A Shootout Awkward
Bright is set in an alternate present-day where humans co-exist with fantasy creatures such as orcs, elves, and fairies. A new trailer for the film has been released, which suggest it'll be a unusual but potentially pretty good movie.

The crux of the problem has been with the dot projector, according to Bloomberg.

Bloomberg's assertion that Apple has reduced the accuracy specs for Face ID "is completely false", the company said in a statement provided to TechNewsWorld by Apple spokesperson Alex Kirschner.

When Apple knew that it would be too tedious a task to implement this, it should have at least given the suppliers some extra time, instead of the typical two year lead time. Not because the product itself is weak - quite the contrary, iPhone X looks like an incredible smartphone - but more due to Apple's inability to meet demand. At the phone's official unveiling in September, executives boasted that there was a one in a million chance that an interloper could defeat Face ID to unlock a phone. Pre-orders for the iPhone X go live October 27th at 12:01am PDT and the device will be available in stores on November 3rd. The iPhone X is the first of Apple's smartphones to use the screen technology - the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, like their predecessors, use LCD - and manufacturers reportedly encountered issues meeting the firm's stringent quality demands.
