CALIFORNIA- It’s no longer a secret that Apple is facing production issues with the iPhone X, and the components used in the device’s facial recognition module are to blame for it. A recent report from Bloomberg said that Apple has told suppliers it will settle for lower quality Face ID components to ramp up production.
The exact words from the report published by Bloomberg:
“The company let suppliers reduce accuracy of the phone’s Face ID system to speed up production.”
Now, Apple breaks silence to the claims made in the report, terming it as “completely false,” and adding that there is no change in the accuracy that was originally announced.
Following is Apple’s statement:
“The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven’t changed. It continues to be 1 in a million probability of a random person unlocking your iPhone with Face ID. Bloomberg’s claim that Apple has reduced the accuracy spec for Face ID is completely false and we expect Face ID to be the new gold standard for facial authentication.”
