Face ID accuracy on iPhone X hasn't been reduced assures Apple
Pre-order of iPhone X starts from tomorrow.
The iPhone X was unveiled alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus last month. Soon after the launch, reports claimed Apple may delay the release of iPhone X due to some production issues.
However, proving the rumors wrong, Apple will start receiving the pre-orders of the iPhone X from October 27, which is tomorrow. According to a report by Bloomberg, the company has managed to make its 2017 flagship available on time by reducing the accuracy of the phone's face recognition feature. The publication cited sources close to people familiar with the matter.
The report further explained that Apple relaxed some of the technical specifications for the sensors in the Face ID system to speed up the production process.
While Apple usually prefers keeping quiet, this time the company has dismissed the claims made by Bloomberg. "Bloomberg's claim that Apple has reduced the accuracy spec for Face ID is completely false," said the Cupertino-giant in a statement to Reuters.
As reported by Deccan Chronicle, a Bloomberg spokesperson said the publication stood behind stood behind its report. Interestingly, Apple's shares went down by 0.7 percent at$155.99 in midday trading.
The Face ID system is one of the most highlighted features of the iPhone X. As claimed by Apple, the probability of fooling the Face ID is next to impossible; 1 in 1,000,000.
Apple has assured its fans by saying, "The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven't changed. It continues to be 1 in a million probability of a random person unlocking your iPhone with Face ID."
