Speaking to Nikkei Asian Review, two "executives working for iPhone suppliers" said that only tens of thousands of iPhone X units were being produced each day, and this was down to difficulties in building usable 3D sensor parts.

Since Apple first officially announced Face ID on September 12, security researchers and privacy experts have pressed the company to reveal more details about just how the face-scanning technology works. Apple explained that handlers mistakenly set off Face ID attempts prior to Federighi's presentation, which caused the phone to revert to a passcode lock before he took the stage. If you're having a problem with Face ID, you can opt in and have your iPhone save the images used to setup Face ID and subsequently unlock your phone (including the photos that fail to match).

One is that it it struggles to recognize younger users, with Apple warning that kids under 13 don't yet have sufficiently developed facial features to enable accurate identification. The company claims the data never leaves the device and isn't ever sent to Apple.

"Third-party apps can use system-provided APIs to ask the user to authenticate using Face ID or a passcode, and apps that support Touch ID automatically support Face ID without any changes", notes the document. Next, the camera captures a separate 2D infrared image with the help of something called a flood illuminator, which is what helps the phone see your face in the dark. By matching against the 3D image of your face, for example, Apple says you can't simply spoof the system with a 2D photograph, which doesn't have any depth.

WAFU Cup: Ezenwa Named Best Goalkeeper, Despite Ghana Humiliation
Ezenwa kept clean sheet in Nigeria's first four matches before poor defending exposed him to the four goals he conceded last night.

Another boost to Face ID security is a separate neural network specifically created to thwart spoofing attacks.

The new site and the white papers essentially outline Apple's commitment to privacy as it introduces more personal and potentially sensitive features and services. Apps don't get access to facial scans or any of the data in the Secure Enclave.

That's what Apple says. If the model is good enough, it may keep using it for an unspecified "finite number of additional unlocks before that data is discarded".

Security researchers worry that Apple's assurances on the security of its features make users overconfident that no one can access their personal data. Face ID, it seems, is no exception. This went against earlier rumors that suggested that Apple would be trying to implement an under screen fingerprint sensor, but instead it seems like Apple chose to do away with Touch ID completely.
