    Apple is betting so hard on the added value of its inimitable TrueDepth camera kit that allows Face ID biometric unlocking and entertaining crowd-pleasers like Animojis, that it made several compromises with the look and app compatibility of the iPhone X .
    Well, folks were perfectly fine with unlocking their phone via the Touch ID finger scanner, and now it turns out that the Animoji feature may not even need the TrueDepth set, so... Wait, what? Apparently, even when you cover everything in the notch area but the regular ...

    Here's what the Galaxy S9 might look like if Samsung copies the iPhone X

    6 days ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Samsung is rumored to launch the Galaxy S9 earlier than expected next year so that it can better face the iPhone X threat. Reports also say the new Samsung handset will feature some iPhone X “tricks,” although it's not clear what that means.
    Yes, the Galaxy S9 will undoubtedly feature a dual-lens camera like the Galaxy Note 8, but that's not the iPhone X's signature feature. What else can the Galaxy S9 steal from the iPhone X? Face ID is one likely candidate, assuming Samsung can develop similar facial recognition technology in time for the Galaxy S9's launch. The design may be one other...

    Apple said its new Face ID unlock system on the iPhone X would only find an issue every one in a million cases, but we've now already heard word of a problem. A 10-year-old has unlocked his mother's iPhone X using the Face ID feature and it looks like it thinks the child's face is similar enough to his parent's to be able to unlock the phone. You can see how easy it is for the 10-year-old to unlock the phone in the video below.

    IPhone X exclusive Animoji might not even need Face ID's TrueDepth camera to work

    6 days ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Every new iPhone comes with new hardware and software innovation that power signature features that aren't available on other iOS or macOS devices. In time, these features will be available on all iPhones and iPads of the future. Older models will not get them because they often lack the hardware to support those features, and that's understandable. But other times, Apple may just choose not to make a software feature backward compatible.
    The iPhone X comes with a sophisticated front-facing TrueDepth camera that includes a bunch of sensors and cameras to make facial recognition...

    Tim Cook joked that the new FaceID of iPhone X can be unlocked by your twin. But it turns out that your kids can unlock it too. That's what the Malik family found out when 10-year old Ammar unlocked his mom's iPhone with no issues at all.
    And he didn't even need a fancy 3D printed mask as some security researchers have used to get past Apple's new biometric security. He has his mom's genes and that proved enough. Here, watch the mother and son team do a demo:
    Apple claims that the chance of a random person unlocking the iPhone X via FaceID is 1 in 1,000,000, compared to 1 in 50,000...
