IPhone 8: A 3D Scanner in place of the Touch ID?

Techno 6 July, 2017

According to the latest rumors, the iPhone 8 will give up its Touch ID in favor of a 3D facial scanner. More secure, this method should also be faster than the fingerprint reader. The details !

Unlock your future iPhone 8 thanks to your face as on a Galaxy S8? Apple could soon make this possible. According to predictions from analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the next flagship of the apple will not have a Touch ID sensor under its screen. And today, Mark Gurman, a Bloomberg reporter, informs us that Apple is testing a facial scanner … in 3D! And this technology will not be the only novelty added to the data sheet of the headed smartphone: slab OLED, chip Apple Neural Engine, and a front face used to manage artificial intelligences … These projects promise rather ambitious. But can the Cupertino company meet the deadlines?

The 3D visual recognition system of the iPhone 8 should logically be fast enough, accurate and secure to prevent another person to unlock your smartphone with a photo of you printed on a sheet … Small feature: it should work Without the user having to place himself in front of the cam! Placed flat, you will not even have to lean over it! Incredible, right? This tech seems to be rather arduous to set up and it is unclear whether it will be operational for the official presentation of the iPhone 8 that is fast approaching. What do you think ?
