During the launch event of the new range of devices Apple, after the presentation iPhone 8 si iPhone 8 Plus, which seems to have not impressed anyone on the scene screen Steve Jobs Theater the message appeared "One more thing ...". It was the sign that the "icing on the cake" was coming. The device that the audience and fans Apple they could hardly wait to see him, to discover his abilities and innovations.

From the very first presentation images, the emphasis was on the new facial recognition feature Face ID and on the design edge-to-edge totally new to one iPhone, drawn by Jony Ive (Apple Chief Design Officer).

Make ID on iPhone X

During the presentation event of iPhone X, it was also a less pleasant moment for those from Apple. At the first live demonstration, which should have shown how to unlock a iPhone X using Face ID, the work did not go as it should and in the end it took the PIN to unlock it.

What is Face ID and how does it work?

Many have said that Samsung the first one with fingerprint release, but the technology used by Samsung has proven to be grounded by a simple picture or selfie, capable of unlocking the devices. It was a big failure for the Korean company. Face ID is quite different. Both scanning and technology.

Face ID is introduced to increase security new devices Apple. Currently, this feature is used only on  iPhone X and is supposed to replace touch ID. footprint. Thanks to the sensors and front chambers, which I have presented above, TrueDepth Camera has the ability to scan face lines and design 30.000 invisible points with the help dot projector. These 30.000 invisible points will make up a 3D image of the face. During the Face ID setting process, the owner iPhonewill have to rotate the circular head to capture all the lines of the face.
The device will be impossible to unlock by another person, no matter how much it resembles the authorized one. In addition, there is no problem if you use foundation or other forms of machiaj. Being a 3D geometric image, the color of the face and other elements that bring changes in "design" does not matter.
With the help infrared camera, Face ID can be both set and used on light or dark light.

Apple tells us that Face ID requires "user attention" to function. If we don't look at iPhone or we have our eyes closed, the device will not unlock.

Front camera a iPhone X is truly a revolutionary one that is able to capture HD quality images even when we are in low light.
