Apple Says Bloomberg Report on Face ID Seeing Reduced Accuracy "Completely False"

HSBC analyst Steven Pelayo predicted a strong iPhone upgrade cycle as well as growing Apple Watch sales. The initial shipments are expected to touch just 20 million. But if there's a delay in shipping, Apple could see their last quarter sales decrease in comparison to previous years. "I'm happy with my iPhone 8 - which is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6, to me".

As you may know, the facial scanner in the iPhone X is based on the technology that Microsoft first used, disastrously, in its Xbox Kinect sensor. On average, equities research analysts forecast that Apple Inc. will post $9.01 earnings per share for the current year.

I noted in this morning's report that "Bloomberg's latest report is as close to being a hit piece as I've ever seen", and with Apple's quick response, we clearly see that they agreed.

Speaking of the issues that Apple faced with production over the summer, a new report by Bloomberg details what the company actually went through and some of the decisions that were made to help alleviate some of the pain points. The iPhone X has ditched the home button and adopted "an organic light-emitting diode display". The issues in production were reportedly solved over the summer, but a large production run takes many months.

Apple's iPhone X is rumored to be hard to manufacture, with a lot of reports pointing to production problems with the front-facing depth-sensing camera.

While Twitter through their spokesman refused to confirm whether the account belonged to James B. He has rarely used the social media account unlike the current president of the United States.

The short-term solution for the tech giant is to downgrade the FaceID's accuracy.

Apple has allegedly told suppliers they can reduce the accuracy of its face recognition technology to speed up manufacturing of the iPhone X, reports Bloomberg.

Buzz surrounding Apple's upcoming iPhone X is huge, and much of the hullabaloo centers on the device's new facial recognition technology, which is apparently so advanced that it makes fingerprint sensors look as modern-age as cave drawings and fire-hardened wood. At the phone's official unveiling in September, executives boasted that there was a one in a million chance that an interloper could defeat Face ID to unlock a phone. This is for verification of the person. Face ID is a powerful and secure authentication system that's incredibly easy and intuitive to use.

The 3D sensor utilized for Face ID is placed at the top of the device and comprises of three primary components which are a flood illuminator, a dot projector, and an infrared camera. The dot projector is the main reason for the production problems. The system uses a two-stage process because the dot projector makes big computational demands and would rapidly drain the battery if activated as frequently as the flood illuminator.

Analysts predict that Apple will have two to three million phones ready for the iPhone X's November 3 launch date and 25 million to 30 million ready for the holidays.
