Yesterday Apple announced three new iPhone models, the incremented updates iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with the special edition iPhone X. The iPhone X features edge to edge all display front panel with the all new Super Retina Display. Which means there is no space for a home button. The iPhone X comes with the latest security unlock a feature called the Face ID. Basically, you look at your phone to unlock it.
As expected, Apple made a huge deal about how secured the new Face ID feature is. Phill Schiller even showed how it is way better than their Touch ID which is a current ”gold standard”. Moments after all the bragging about the new iPhone X, Craig Federighi took the stage to demonstrate how easy it is to use the new iPhone X. Unfortunately, everything didn’t go as planned.
When Craig tried to demonstrate the new Face ID feature it just didn’t work, the iPhone X greeted him with the password screen instead. Craig handled it swiftly and moved on with the second iPhone X which worked perfectly. Everyone in the audience was confused and it was a really embarrassing moment for the Apple team. It wasn’t a technical problem, it was actually a result of human error.
The lock screen read, “Your passcode is required to enable Face ID.” Every iPhone X owner will be greeted with this same message at the time of the first boot. Someone really messed it up, all the iPhones on stage should have been ready to be used but they weren’t. This resulted in a huge blunder and embarrassment for the whole team.
The base model of iPhone X starts at $999 and it comes in two configurations 64GB and 256 GB. The preorders for the iPhone X will begin on October 27th and it will start shipping from November 3, 2017. Stay tuned for the updates.
