Apple dismisses Bloomberg's report on Face ID downgrade

Apple lets iPhone X Face ID accuracy drop to meet deadline – report

The iPhone X, pronounced "iPhone Ten", features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED edge-to-edge display with 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458ppi, HDR support, Dolby Vision, HDR10, and True Tone.

However, there have been reports that more value-conscious iPhone buyers, seeing little obvious difference between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, are choosing to go with the cheaper iPhone 7. Apple opens its preorder books from 12:01AM Pacific time on Friday morning, October 27, or 3:01AM Eastern time. This allows you to order from Apple or Best Buy on your carrier without the need to use your carrier's website or app. Apple can match supply to demand more effectively, he added. The company is also offering the handset as part of its iPhone Upgrade Programme in the United Kingdom, this is only available in Apple stores and prices start at £56.45 a month.

However, doubts remain over the functionality of Face ID on the iPhone X - the biometric technology had come a dud during its demonstration at Apple's September 12 event in Cupertino. Of course, they're also part of the reason the smartphone is so appealing in the first place.

The Face ID system is incredibly complicated, but it can be boiled down to three key components: a dot projector, a flood illuminator, and an infrared camera. You'll have to wait until our iPhone X review to see if the new gesture controls are all that intuitive, but they certainly look good. Deliveries begin in a week, from November 3.

There are a few ways to stand a better chance of being successful online tonight. This will replace Touch ID on the handset for unlocking the device and also for Apple Pay. As more people pre-order, delivery times will likely lengthen as Apple's initial supply of iPhone X models is eaten up. "And clearly the more that you can lock in pre-orders, you can lock in customers".




Before midnight, know how buying on the Apple Store works, and how you will be paying for the item. Still, sometimes there's just no way to avoid the dreaded "we can't authorize" message. We are not sure if the same is applies to other countries as well. Moreover, as per the media reports, iPhone X is not going to be shipped in as much quantity as it had initially been planned.

You may, though, decide to hold off altogether. While all three iPhones offer significant upgrades over last year's models, iPhone X surely offers the biggest new features. Before pre-orders start, familiarize yourself with the app's buying process with the iPhone 8.

Given predictions from some quarters that, as a first-generation device, the iPhone X may well face some teething pains, there's no shame in holding back and waiting for the new hardware and software to shake itself out. You should always have a backup payment option and you may even want to have a plan to buy the iPhone X without a payment plan in case that runs into issues.
