Apple iPhone X Face ID Failed During Its Big Demo
During the Apple launch event, which took place in the Steve Jobs auditorium of its brand new corporate headquarters Apple Park, one of the main strengths of the new iPhone X failed twice. This is the system to unlock the smartphone, called Face ID, which generates three-dimensional models of the user’s face in order to activate it.
Craig Federighi, the tech giant Apple’s vice president of Software Engineering, looked at the phone once and slid the screen up, explaining how the user should use the new identification system. But nothing happened, the phone was still locked.
The tech giant Apple’s vice president, Craig Federighi tried it one more time and again he fails to do so. Now, on the third chance, he manages to defeat the security system of the iPhone X, Face ID, with a nervous laugh naturalized an uncomfortable moment during the presentation.
Is that the company had announced that this new technology of face recognition fails once in a million. If any of you know or not, then let me recall a similar failure that the founder of the tech giant Microsoft, Bill Gates had in 1995.
Microsoft’s co-founder, Bill Gates also suffered a drawback during a presentation and the audience responded with laughter and applause. Because although this type of failure “is very unlikely to occur” can happen in the least expected moments.
At this launching opportunity, the tech giant Apple introduced the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and announced the new version of Apple Watch as well along with the new Apple TV.
The Face ID system, which differentiates this last model from the previous ones along with the loss of the front button on its 5.8-inch screen, will work even in low light conditions, thanks to the use of an infrared camera combined with depth sensors and can not be violated with the use of a photo. Although they did not mention competition, the importance was placed on the security and innovation of this system.
