Anonymous, 10 Oct 2017use Face ID to unlock that gigantic 12.9" iPad Pro XDI use my face to unlock on my surface pro for a while now... makes sense for Apple to do the same on their tablets.
I'd rather said "The iPhone X pretends to be the first Apple device with a TrueDepth front-facing camera that enables Face ID". For now iPhoneXis a prototype that nobody can find in the store.
FaceID makes a lot more sense on an iPad.
Why couldn't Apple used that to launch the product, and test the waters?
It really feels like the iPhone X is an unfinished product, at extortionate prices.

But then, why would you unlock your phone and not look at it to see what's on the screen or to simply see if it did successfully unlock?
I guess what they're saying is that you have to look at the screen anyway so using the FaceId isnt really an extra step to "USING" your phone and it is secure.

You'd think on an event as important as this they would let anyone play with the demonstration phone right before the presentation?? Seriously?? HOHOHO
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2017People were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time, says a rep, and didnt re... moreUnfortunately that is not true.. They are just lying to cover their failure.. If that explanation is true then the passcode screen should come up the first time he tried to unlock the device.. But he tried 2 times and failed and only on the 3rd time meaning the FaceID did indeed FAIL.. He then proceed to the backup phone which has no security set and unlock without using FaceID.. Actually they knew that it is prone to failure that is why they had a backup phone without FaceID right beside on the stage.. If they are really CONFIDENT then there is no need for a backup phone.. Or if there is a backup phone it will be behind the stage only to be handed IF the situation calls for and NOT on standby beside him.. Just swallow the FAIL pill.. Though if Steve Jobs were still here he will make sure this would not happen.. Steve must have spinned in his grave when the FaceID demonstration failed. LOL

the Only Oracle, 09 Oct 2017And that iPad will fail during the presentation too. LolPeople were handling the device for stage demo ahead of time, says a rep, and didnt realize Face ID was trying to authenticate their face. After failing a number of times, because they werent Craig, the iPhone did what it was designed to do, which was to require his passcode, an Apple representative told Yahoo.
MazmuREAL, 10 Oct 2017Have you read around the net on why it failed during presentation? If not please search around... moreandroid user always have high hope that apple will fail ... they really afraid with apple
the Only Oracle, 09 Oct 2017And that iPad will fail during the presentation too. LolHave you read around the net on why it failed during presentation? If not please search around first because your comment looks dumb to me. lol
The face id on the iPhone X only allows one person's face to be registered. I hope they don't do that to the ipad or else it will fail big time as ipads are usually family devices.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2017Face id slower than touch id in many situations. And requires facing phone Same thing in finger print scanner because you have to look at your phone every time you do that right because you have to look at your phone whether is is unlock or not. The face ID is convenient for me because you just have to look at your phone even not in the eye level unlike the iris scanner.
And that iPad will fail during the presentation too. Lol
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2017Face id slower than touch id in many situations. And requires facing phone I didn't know the iPhone X was released and that Mr Anonymous tried it.
Anyway, this was expected. The way Apple unveiled Face ID at the event was a clear sign that they are going to phase out Touch ID in favor of this on all their products. I am not worried, you can say what you want about Apple, but when they make a leap like this one, it means they're sure it's going to work.
