Apple's problems with the location of the fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 8 are still ongoing. Over the next few weeks, the company must decide whether it will be replaced by face recognition.
The launch of iPhone 8 is getting closer. To complete the preparation on time, Apple must make a final decision about how to secure the device about 12 weeks before mass production begins. So by the end of July at the latest. Another way to unlock your device is to recognize your face , but this is not a sufficiently accurate way. Even if Apple refines this solution to operate in different angles and under poor lighting conditions, a 5 percent inaccuracy means that the authorization will fail more often than it was at TouchID. Deactivating your fingerprint reader's iPhones for face recognition can effectively block the ability to authorize payments in Apple Pay, which is still unavailable in Poland. I do not think the method was as safe and difficult to do as a fingerprint. I think Apple will not take that risk.At the horrendous price of iPhones 8 these problems are unacceptable. I do not want to believe that Apple would have to abandon its own payment system in such an important device for itself. I'm curious what kind of security you would most like to see in the future. Will the fingerprint reader remain the most popular solution? Source: Barrons
