Apple is reducing the accuracy of Face ID to speed up production

We have seen recently and continuously many reports and rumors that the production of the iPhone X was delayed, this was due to some component suppliers who were taking too long to manufacture their part and thus were affecting the Apple product as such. One of the biggest culprits in this issue was the Face ID or 3D sensor and it still is, but the apple has come up with a plan to reduce the accuracy of this facial recognition system to speed up the production of it.

What Apple has ‘tweaked’ so to speak is the infrared light that is activated for facial recognition or Face ID. Once the lighting has done its job, it provides 30,000 points to the iPhone X with which it will remember our face and other facial features with great accuracy. Basically, what Cupertino’s company has done is to simplify this process a bit more so as to be able to speed up production and manufacture more easily.

The report does not indicate how much the accuracy of Face ID will be reduced or how it will affect users or their security, but it certainly states that the accuracy of the system itself has been affected. Right now the important thing for Apple is to meet and supply the current demand so speeding up production will help the company and its customers interested in iPhone X dramatically.

The data is dubious since 3 million units are expected worldwide on the day of its launch, November 3rd , but it has also been said that Apple will have stock in the retail stores or Apple Store the same day that the iPhone X comes out so it is really curious.
