According to Bloomberg’s report, Technology giant Apple has allowed its manufacturers to decrease the accuracy of its Face ID to increase the phone’s production. They already faced an embarrassing glitch while showcasing its premium flagship phone, the iPhone X while demonstrating its most revolutionary feature that unlocks the device.
This was the first time that Face ID has been used in any phone. For those who don’t know, Apple had introduced this feature in iPhone X in place of Touch ID during a press conference on September 12. It uses the TrueDepth camera system on the top part of the display to unlock the device. Face ID can also be used for authentication, payments, and it’s also applied while using Apple Pay.
Earlier there were speculations where reports stated that Apple has been facing production delay in iPhone X due to problems in the Face ID manufacturing process.
Though Apple, in a recent statement has denied the report. They said the reports claiming that it allowed its suppliers to reduce the accuracy of iPhone X’s Face Id to speed up the manufacturing process are “completely false”. While acknowledging the delay in the production of iPhone X, Apple’s CEO Time Cook said, “We”ll see what happens”. Whether or not these rumors are true, only time will tell. The iPhone X will go on sale on November 3.
