Apple will produce smartphones only with Face ID starting 2018

Apple made a decision to ditch Touch ID in iPhone X and come up with a new facial recognition technology known as the Face ID. The latest note by KGI Security analyst Ming-Chi Kuo states that Apple is likely to ditch TouchID for the entire future iPhone lineup and instead opt for the 3D sensing FaceID.

With the iPhone and 8 Plus only just being released and the iPhone X not launching until 3 November, it's far too early to start making predictions as to what Apple will release in 2018.

Kuo also notes that several Android players may join the 3D sense bandwagon next year, but are unlikely to steal Apple's thunder.

Face ID works, in part, by projecting a dot matrix across the face to map the contours of its surface.

As well as just being used for security features, Apple's facial recognition cameras and sensors are used to capture the new Animoji, which mimic your movements and turn your face into an assortment of animals.

"We believe this change will allow all new models to realise a competitive advantage via differentiation, on the back of an integrated user experience of full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera/ Facial recognition/ Face ID/ AR applications". Till then, we shall enjoy the awesomeness of Animojis.

All in all, it appears that the iPhone X's notch is a design decision we'll all have to live with over the next few years, whether you like it or not.

Previously, it was thought that Apple would place the Touch ID sensor inside of the iPhone's display. He believes that these features will be limited to Apple' flagship iPad Pro devices.

Now, everyone is anxious because they can't imagine their life without Touch ID, and we're going to see exactly the same thing with Face ID.

Face ID ever since the announcement of iPhone X has gone through extreme levels of scrutiny over the internet but since the consumers have yet to use the phones with Face ID, the jokes on the internet should be taken, well, as jokes only.
