Apple calls report of reduced iPhone X Face ID specs “completely false”


Apple lowered the specifications for the components that make up the iPhone X’s Face ID sensor to help its supply chain manufacture the upcoming phone faster, according to a new Bloomberg report, but Apple has publicly denied the report.

The report generally highlights the struggles with Apple’s new facial recognition system during the iPhone X manufacturing process. It says the company gave its suppliers the okay to reduce the accuracy of Face ID to speed up production sometime in “early fall.”

The report does not specify how Apple may have reduced the specifications for Face ID or whether the alleged reduction would have any tangible effect for consumers. Apple said that Face ID’s accuracy was 1,000,000:1 when it unveiled the iPhone X in September, well above the one-in-50,000 chance that a user could unlock someone else’s iPhone using the company’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
