Apple makes iPhone X faster but with a worse Face ID



Yesterday we were talking about the availability of the iPhone X. It is estimated that Apple will market 20 million units of the smartphone during 2017, a figure well below what was expected.

This delay in launching the iPhone X and its lack of stock in the Apple Stores are due to the manufacturing problems of the terminal. But today we have discovered that the company may be speeding up production by telling its suppliers that they can reduce the accuracy of Face ID facial recognition technology .


Apple has had various production issues with different components, especially the 3D sensor modules for the TrueDepth camera and Face ID technology. By reducing the accuracy of such technology, manufacturing companies can reduce the production process as the iPhone X would be slightly easier to manufacture.


Will face recognition face problems?


We have been debating on several occasions whether Face ID was a good replacement for Touch ID . Everything will depend on the reliability of the function on the iPhone X, and until November 3 we will not be able to know. Will there be problems after the supposed reduction in accuracy?


What we do know is that the production of the iPhone X has slowed down a lot because of the complexity of the 3D sensors in the terminal frame, which consist of a projector, an illumination beam and an infrared camera. The projector is responsible for throwing 30,000 invisible points to the user's face, and the lighting beam works together with the infrared camera to determine if a face is present in front of the iPhone X screen.

"PRECISION IS THE KEY. IF THE MICROSCOPIC COMPONENTS ARE DISCONNECTED, THE TECHNOLOGY MAY NOT WORK PROPERLY, AS PEOPLE ARE INFORMED OF THE SITUATION. "


Apple may have reduced the accuracy of Face ID on the iPhone X, as a result, it would take less time to test the modules . However, some people claim that Face ID facial recognition would still be better than Touch ID.
