One year ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

Al Franken sure likes to write letters. Barely a day removed from Apple's iPhone X event, the Minnesota Senator penned a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook asking a myriad of questions about the security protocols built into Apple's brand new Face ID technology and any resulting privacy implications.

One year ago   |   By Business Insider

When Apple introduced the iPhone X at its latest event on Tuesday, it touted its new Face ID biometric authentication system as one of the phone's exclusive features. However, the first demo on stage seemingly failed to work properly .
When Apple engineering SVP Craig Federighi grabbed the iPhone X on stage, he looked at it and waited for Face ID to authenticate him. However, the phone blocked him out, and required a passcode.
