UPDATE: Apple issues an official statement disputing Bloomberg’s allegation. Apple maintains that Face ID would still continue to have the same 1 in 1,000,000 accuracy.
Customer excitement for iPhone X and Face ID has been incredible, and we can’t wait for customers to get their hands on it starting Friday, November 3. Face ID is a powerful and secure authentication system that’s incredibly easy and intuitive to use. The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven’t changed. It continues to be 1 in a million probability of a random person unlocking your iPhone with Face ID.
Bloomberg’s claim that Apple has reduced the accuracy spec for Face ID is completely false and we expect Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication.
The iPhone X is what Apple describes as the future of smartphones. It is radically redesigned from the ground up with an edge-to-edge all screen Super Retina display. For the very first time, Apple has removed its Touch ID button and have replaced it with Face ID.
Unfortunately, the Face ID hardware is rather complex and it is partly the reason why Apple is struggling to produce enough iPhone X for the coming launch on 3 November. With pressure mounting, it was reported that Apple has told its suppliers to reduce the accuracy of its Face ID system in order to increase production.
Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note7 was a hazard for flights. After discovering that the device could spontaneously combust without warning, flights banned it, Samsung recalled it and Note fans wept over it.
With the well-received successor — the Samsung Galaxy Note8 — the company wants you to know that they haven’t forgotten what has happened. And they did that by giving 200 lucky people a brand new Galaxy Note8 for free.
If you’ve been looking for a new mid-range smartphone there is good news because a brand new contender has hit the Malaysian market. ASUS’ ZenFone 4 is finally on sale, for real, locally.
The iPhone X that you’ve been waiting for will be released officially on Friday, 3 November according to plan. For those who want to secure the latest “all-screen” phone from Apple, pre-orders will be available starting this Friday, 27 October at 12:01am PDT (3PM Malaysian Time) on Apple’s Online Store.
Android vs iOS is an argument as old as time. It’s the tech version of the pizza vs burger argument, both with equally staunch fans that are willing to defend their side of the fence until their dying breath. It’s an argument neither side can win because there’s no such thing as a true winner.
I’m primarily an Android user. I’ve always used Android smartphones for two big reasons: 1. I like how customisable the OS is; 2. Android smartphones are just far more accessible than their pricier rivals. However, I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t occasionally wonder if the grass was greener on the other side. Then, the day finally came, and I got my hands on the brand new iPhone 8.
I was finally in the promised land, the utopia of simplicity and elegance that was supposed to be the pinnacle of mobile operating systems. But after spending a few days with iOS 11, the initial impression I came away with was actually one of frustration.
