IPhone X camera issues might be affecting Face ID

IPhone X camera issues might be affecting Face ID

It is basically a 3D face scanner that uses several components to analyse a person's face and verify identity.


"As for advising service providers to try fixing the rear camera first, that is something of a technical mystery."

". There was no immediate solution to the problem at the time, but Apple's resolution should certainly bring some relief to affected users. It's unclear what specific connection the Face ID system has with that camera assembly.

Apple engineers in stores may be able to resolve mysterious issues with Face ID by repairing the rear-facing camera and, if that fails, will be permitted to offer a full device replacement, an alleged internal company memo has revealed.

The new iPhones will eventually come with more powerful batteries, manufactured by Unimicron, with the iPhone X Plus sporting a 3,300 mAh cell, the biggest one in an Apple smartphone yet. "Starting July 2018, all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X", Apple states in a new developer document.

Apple past year in September came up with its most expensive phone -the iPhone X- with a revolutionary design and secured Face ID technology. If the test identifies a problem, specialists are then asked to perform the necessary fix and see if it addresses the Face ID issue. "If the issue is not resolved, perform a whole unit replacement instead of a same-unit display fix", the company has said. The 6.5-inch 2018 iPhone is able to keep its footprint almost the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus because the device will have the same thin bezels found on the iPhone X.

The kind of link that exists between the iPhone X's rear camera and the front-facing TrueDepth system isn't entirely clear.

One of these components is a Dot Projector that projects more than 30,000 invisible dots onto your face to map its structure. If the primary camera unit of the iPhone X can't be fixed by authorized service personnel, engineers must then replace the entire rear camera. Suffice it to say, the iPhone X Plus will undoubtedly appeal to users looking for additional screen real estate in a familiar and relatively manageable form factor.

The iOS 12 will support horizontal Face ID unlocking. Apple makes up about 4.8% of Locust Wood Capital Advisers LLC's holdings, making the stock its 5th largest holding.

"We augmented the studies as needed to provide a high degree of accuracy for a diverse range of users", she said.
