Apple to Unveil Face ID 2.0 on 2019 iPhone
Now that the 2018 iPhone generation is available for buyers across the world, Apple can increase the focus on the 2019 lineup.
And according to top-rated Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, one priority for the 2019 iPhone series is making the Face ID facial recognition system faster and more accurate.
Kuo says in a note to investors that 2019 iPhones will ship with a substantially improved Face ID version that will rely on a new flood illuminator with increased power. This would technically lower the likelihood of Face ID failing to scan users’ faces by reducing the impact surrounding light may have on the scanning process.
Apple is working at full speed on making Face ID faster and more accurate, as it has become the only unlocking feature on the iPhone and is not available across the entire lineup.
