Apple May Have Fudged iPhone X's Face ID

Face ID is the marquee new feature on the iPhone X.                  Apple

A Bloomberg spokeswoman said on Wednesday the company stood behind its report.

Apple doesn't typically respond to press reports (positive or negative), but it prides itself on the quality of its products, which is the result of the extremely high requirements it imposes on contract manufacturers. The standout feature of the iPhone X, Face ID uses a series of sensors to detect and analyze people's faces. It's not clear how Apple's less stringent demands will affect Face ID's accuracy. The company says there's a one in one million chance a random person could pick up your iPhone X and unlock it with their face, compared to a 1 in 50,000 chance on Touch ID devices.

According to Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller, "Bloomberg's claim that it reduced the accuracy spec for Face ID is completely false and we expect Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication".

"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". And one of them, the iPhone X, is more forward-leaning in aping the near bezel-less screen design that Samsung innovated, but with a compromising "notch" at the top of the screen that even Apple's biggest fans have described as a mistake.

In an astonishing turn of events, Apple has secretly told the press that iPhone X facial recognition will not work well.

Dot projector production problems could create a production bottleneck that would limit supply. Sharp and LG Innotek are other companies that have also struggled completing this task, with only 20% of the technology being usable off the assembly line. Both are fragile and a manufacturing miscalculation by less than a fraction of a hair's width can ruin the technology.

Regardless, one thing seems clear: iPhone X supply is going to be awful this quarter.

The fragility of the components and Apple's well-known perfectionism made it hard for suppliers to keep up. It is unclear how the relaxation will affect the technology. The 3D sensor shortage should end, however, in early 2018.

With just days to go before customers can pre-order the new iPhone X, some news reports are pointing to a less-than-sunny outlook for Apple's latest device. Recently, the KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would only ship between two and three million iPhone X units before launch.

"Signs of weakness in iPhone 8 sales means Apple could sell fewer handsets than a year ago, despite all the fanfare surrounding the iPhone X", it notes. Yep.
