Will they? It's Apple. Who knows. But cutting Intel out is sure to be good.

youd basically have to re-write everything, right?

It is completely harmless.

I tend to agree. The cumulative IR exposure from Face ID (or any other such system) is literally insignificant compared to even a few moments outside in the glare of the sun. Then again, I still don't like the fact that there is no other passive ID options on the iPhone. I hate that Samsung moved the fingerprint scanner onto the back of the S8 and Note 8 but at least it is still available to use if you decide retina scanning is not for you. In the case of the iPX you have no choice between the Face ID or non-passive authentication methods such as PINS etc which are inherently less secure.

I really wish both companies had managed to find a way to offer fingerprint scanners embedded in the screens as was rumored to be coming to these latest devices.

They've probably already had OS X running on ARM hardware internally for awhile. Apple's switched architectures a few times in the past. 68000 > PowerPC > x86. Switching to ARM wouldn't be a big stretch.

UFS 2.1 > NVME

Try again.
Nope, see above.

Check out the detailed specs yourself:



That’s an 8+ logic board.

Next Gen phones may have it. For now I don’t miss Touch ID. Sweaty or wet fingers game me errors all the time. While Face ID works without me having to lift the phone off my desk.

I have yet to tried Face ID with a wet face. I often bring my phone in the shower for music. Touch ID never worked there lol

What happens when an application freezes? How can someone force close an application without double clicking the home button? They should of just used a haptic home button like the Galaxy S8

Also what's the point of Face ID when it barely works with glasses. Should of saved room and went with an iris scanner.

Has anyone tried the Face id yet? Debating if I should buy this.

you force quit apps a bit different, but it’s still easily done.

Face ID works well. It worked with my sport glasses. Have yet to try it with a wet face.

I customized it so three clicks of the side button opens and closes its virtual home button which I moved to the right of the screen just below the side button. 3D click it to go home including opening from lock. One tap opens reachability double tap I set to speech screen because pwm dimming makes my eyes tired and a .55s long press I set to control panel which I filled up with apps. Swipe 30 degree angle from bottom to open up app list is the quickest and long press app swiping up to force close it if it freezes.

The only bad thing about the side button is its not fully programable and can only change its triple click function or open a window from multiple options to choose from.

Edit: changed the long press to multitasking to replace the swipe up gesture. Can still open control panel by reachability to swipe down from top right.

The headphone jack wasn’t removed for the thickness in iPhones. It’s because they would rather fill that space with other features and believe the tech is dead.

The 3.5mm jack is pretty darn old... I have no objections to its death on my phone at least.
