Face ID vs Touch ID: Which function is faster?



As you know, Apple introduced its new 10th anniversary iPhone X along with a revolutionary facial recognition system called Face ID . This technology, a priori, will replace the Touch ID function in the iPhone of the future.

There are some very interesting differences between Face ID facial recognition and the Touch ID fingerprint reader. The facial recognition system does not care if you wear gloves or if your fingers are wet ... But, in turn, the Touch ID does not take into account if you wear sunglasses or a scarf that covers your nose.

These are two very useful security methods, but which one is faster? Is it more efficient to place your finger on the Touch ID or focus your face on the camera with Face ID?


The first analyzes of the facial recognition of Apple place the Face ID function between the first generation Touch ID and the second generation Touch ID . We talk about speed, not security, it is worth mentioning it.

The Touch ID is faster than Face ID

Since Tom Guide have been doing tests, and have shown that the Touch ID function is a little faster . But the difference is only a few thousandths of a second:

"WITH FACE ID ON THE IPHONE X IT TOOK 1.2 SECONDS SINCE YOU PRESSED THE SIDE BUTTON UNTIL THE DEVICE RECOGNIZES YOUR FACE AND UNLOCKS THE SCREEN. IN ADDITION, ANOTHER 0.4 SECONDS ARE NEEDED TO SLIDE YOUR FINGER UP TO UNLOCK THE IPHONE X. TOTAL TIME: 1.8 SECONDS. "


The funny thing of all, and this is why the replacement of Touch ID by Face ID is having so much controversy, is that it is very difficult to discern if it is faster to lift the iPhone to point the camera to the face than to place your finger on the Touch ID.

"ON MY IPHONE 7 PLUS, I WAS ABLE TO GET TO THE HOME SCREEN SIMPLY BY KEEPING MY THUMB PRESSED ON THE TOUCH ID SENSOR WITH AN AVERAGE OF 0.91 SECONDS."


Face ID will also include an option to disable the requirement of your attention (open eyes looking at the screen) so you can have better results if you deactivate this function in iPhone X.

So, yes, Touch ID is still a faster feature than Face ID. But will it be safer? Which movement is really more effective when it comes to unlocking a terminal, the face or your finger? And what about voice recognition?
