Will Apple retain, even if only locally, the raw photos of faces that are used to unlock (or attempt to unlock) the device? When Craig Federighi picked up the iPhone X to demo Face ID, it didn't unlock the device. This is the area where the iPhone X houses the front camera and other sensors.
Should Apple eventually determine that there would be reason to either begin storing faceprint data remotely or use the data for a goal other than the operation of Face ID, what steps will it take to ensure users are meaningfully informed and in control of their data?
For a less drastic solution, IT should keep an eye on the MDM capabilities in the iPhone X. Admins can disable Touch ID through MDM, so it wouldn't be a surprise if that's possible for Face ID as well.
Apple also says Face ID is created to prevent spoofing attempts by a photo or a mask.
Apple has confirmed that while its TouchID fingerprint authentication system is disabled after five failed attempts, Face ID is disabled after just two unsuccessful attempts, the report says. In 2013, he wrote a similar letter to Cook after Apple announced Touch ID, a fingerprint scanner, for its iPhones.
Franken, however, asked whether Face ID "faceprint" data is stored onboard iPhone X, if this information can be extracted from the device and whether Apple plans to store the data on offsite servers. This one is around the attractive 5.8-inch display in the iPhone X. Apple is using an edge-to-edge display in the iPhone X but there is a bit of black bezel area on the top of the phone.
iPhone X Face ID Fail: What Happened? It projects more than 30,000 invisible IR dots onto your face to build a mathematical model of your features.
Face ID, which uses a Kinect-like system to scan the user's face and only lets a matching faceprint unlock the phone, is being treated with some skepticism in the tech community.
