Apart from all the goods in the iPhone X, many people have found a confusing feature in the iPhone X and that is the new Face ID feature. As you know, Apple has replaced the traditional Touch ID feature in the iPhone X with new Facial Recognition feature called, Face ID. You will better understand how this feature will work? Let’s find out everything about the new Face ID feature from the giant, Apple on the upcoming futuristic iPhone, iPhone X.

How does Face ID work on the iPhone X?

Face ID is Apple’s new and innovative security feature which is equipped with the front facing camera on the phone. If you take a closer look on the front panel of the iPhone X, you can see wide array space where a number of sensors including the front facing camera are placed. These sensors work together to make the Face ID work for you. Each of the sensor has its own functionality to work in different conditions.

These sensors work together and make your phone unlock by reading your face data after you setup the Face ID feature on your iPhone X. The Apple’s Face ID works just smarter and doesn’t take much time to recgonize your Face. Whenever you want to unlock your iPhone X, you just need to look at the screen and the phone will be unlocked right away. All the sensors will send data to each other and will work accordingly to unlock your iPhone X.

These sensors or we can say the Face ID feature is much powerful as it works perfectly fine in dark as well. So, this feature works smarter than all the other unlocking features in the night time when there is no lights around.

To make this Face ID work, the phone will take a few of your photos through the front facing camera and stores them to its space to help sensors work accordingly.

In terms of Face ID’s security, there is nothing much difference between the Face ID and Touch ID. The Face ID feature will work to unlock your iPhone without touching any buttons. It will also help you to make payments through Apple Pay and it will even help you launch specific apps. If the Face ID for some reason doesn’t work, you can go with the Passcode option to make things go smoother.

Apart from this, there is a fun way to create and personalize your own Animojis through this Face ID and front facing camera of the iPhone X. The camera can recognize your Face and it will create and customize the emojis in real time with your own facial expressions. Once done, you will be able to share your Facial Expressions through Animojis.

Is Face ID secure than the Touch ID?

Yes, indeed. Face ID is highly innovative and secure way to unlock your phone. If we talk about the accuracy, Touch ID has accuracy of 50,000 users where as the new Face ID has the accuracy of 1 Million users. So if you give your iPhone to 1 Million people, only one person can unlock the device with the Face ID which is double the Touch ID feature.

So this makes it clear that the Apple’s Face ID feature is way more secure than the original Touch ID or we can say Fingerprint Sensor.

Adding more to the security of this Face ID feature, the Face ID is built to find out the facial expressions and works accordingly. If you take a photograph of the person and put it in front of the iPhone X, it will recognize the flat face and it will not work with it. This Face ID will also not work if you have prepared a physical mast of a person. The company has tested enough of this and comes out with the secure way.

Additionally, this new Face ID feature is more powerful to recognize your face even if you have wear a Scarf or a hat or grow beard on your face or entirely make over your face. This Face ID feature will instantly recognize you and will work accordingly.

If you are asleep, then the Face ID will not work if someone takes the phone in front of your face. The Face ID will recognize your current activities and it scans your face entirely. Basically, it works with your attention and if you have closed eyes, this feature will not work with that.

One more thing you might want to know about the Face ID feature on the iPhone X and that it, you will not be able to add another person here. Face ID will work with one person’s face only and that is you, the owner the of the new iPhone X.
