    Apple brings face-tracking to ARKit on iPhone X

    While many expected Apple to push AR capabilities as the hallmark features for newly introduced iDevices, in reality, ARKit was largely a footnote in today’s Apple event as the company focused the bulk of attention on features like Face ID and Animoji.

    Apple slides through its iPhone X event without any major surprises for Wall Street

    We’ve noted before that Apple tends to follow a pretty consistent trend: the company has a big iPhone event, and the stock price doesn’t really do all that much because everyone knows what to expect.

So to keep your phone secure Apple is introducing Face ID, which lets you unlock your phone by just looking at it. This new scanning feature also replaces Touch ID for Apple… Read More

    Apple says the iPhone X battery lasts 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7

    Apple showed off the next-generation iPhone today, called the iPhone X, which included a slew of updates and a big boost to its power and cameras — which, of course, would do some damage to your battery. Still, Eddy Cue on stage said the iPhone X has an additional two hours of battery life. That’s likely thanks to being more power-efficient with its new A11 Bionic processor and… Read More

    The iPhone X will include animoji, emojis animated based on your facial expressions

    Apple demonstrated a new type of emoji today at its press event unveiling the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The iPhone X includes a new facial camera system that allows for practical applications like unlocking your phone (and payments) with your face. It’s also used for something that looks fun and maybe a little creepy — it can track your facial expressions and use them to animate… Read More

    Face ID will work with Apple Pay, third-party apps

    Goodbye fingers, hello faces. With the introduction of Face ID, and the removal of the Touch ID button, Apple today confirmed speculation about its next generation of on-device authentication when it comes to paying for things: You will now be able to buy goods using your new iPhone X, authenticating your identity with facial recognition.
