People naturally have a lot of questions about the face recognition - can someone unlock your phone by pointing it at your face while you're sleeping, for example, or will the face recognition tech have a crappy racial bias?
As a result, should a bad actor gain access to the faceprint data that Face ID requires, the ramifications could last forever, particularly if Apple's biometric technology comes to be used in other devices and settings.
Power Outages Persist For Millions In Florida, Georgia And Carolinas After Irma
The hashtag "Recover813" is being utilized on social media to help officials see the scale of damage caused by the storm. So any criticism of Florida officials for taking the storm seriously and planning for all contingencies is misplaced.
Apple has unveiled its new iPhone, which features face recognition and a glass screen covering the entire surface of the phone with no button. He also wants to know whether Apple would consider storing such data in the cloud in the future. While most people were impressed with Face ID, at least one person saw the feature fail until the display was turned on and off.
The news will come as a relief for those who assumed that Face ID had failed in its first public test. Apple claims the new Face ID feature is more accurate and secure than Touch ID, which lets users to unlock the device using a fingerprint.
He called on Apple to detail how the device protects the facial data from possible hackers and asked whether the data will be used for any objective other than for the facial-recognition system. It supports wireless charging and allows users to unlock, authenticate and pay using Face ID. Facial recognition in the past has been tricked with a photo, such as with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. "It's a major privacy concern, and one many users don't think about until it's too late", they add.
Cleveland Indians winning streak hits 20 in Major League Baseball
Manager Terry Francona says he thinks the winning streak means more since the team has focused just on winning one game at a time. Biggest overachiever: Perez has played 12 games in the streak and is hitting.378/.439/.811 with four home runs and 13 RBIs.
Apple addressed some of these issues during the event, with Schiller saying that just holding the iPhone X up will not work if it's not properly aligned with a person's face.
For the remaining questions, however, I look forward to Apple's responses and evasions, each of which will likely be illuminating in its own way. Some users and IT professionals have security and privacy concerns about biometrics in general, and facial recognition opens up a whole new can of worms. For instance, it'll perhaps not get stumped by some extra beard on your face, or a haircut, or if you are wearing a hat, because it has multiple other reference points to match in such a case.
