  1. 4k camera, you realise this is Apple right … we will be lucky to get a 1080p screen upgrade on the 'Non plus' based iPhone model. 4k is completely pointless anyway on a screen of that size, Android purely only does it for bragging rights.

  2. To anyone still skeptical about Face ID:

    1) Apple’s implementation of facial recognition will use a 3D sensor that will be used to make a 3D depth map of your face. Which means a picture could not fool it. You’d have to have a perfect sculpture of someone’s head to try and fool it. And even then, the software is very likely to be able to tell if someone’s moving or not, meaning no dead sculpture will be able to fool it.

    2) One of the companies Apple’s bought over the last few years to work on facial recognition claimed its algorithm was so accurate it could tell twins apart way better than humans do. So an identical twin wouldn’t be able to fool it.

    3) Apple’s Face ID will use infrared sensors, which means it will be able to scan your face even in the dark. Also, no so-called ‘holographic’ display would be able to fool it, as infrared needs a hard surface that reflects light to work.

    4) As said in the video, one detail discovered in the leaked HomePod firmware points to Face ID being able to detect your face even when the iPhone is flat on a table, probably using some sort of wide angle lens.

    So, yes Face ID will be more secure than Touch ID, yes it’s going to be just as convenient, no you won’t be able to fool it, and no it has never been implemented so well before.
    Pretty much the only way to trick it is to be freaking Arya Stark.

  3. I too used to be on the APPLE hype Train.. until I really took a look at other Phone Maker's. Android Phones have had 2k Displays for going on 3 years now. The Galaxy S8 has a full screen Display with a 2960×1440 display… With FACIAL SCANNING also. I'm willing to bet the iPhone 8 STILL WILL NOT HAVE a 2k Display.. I love iPhones myself but people make a big deal when Apple drops a new phone… But they have always been behind in Technology compared to other phone Maker's… I just don't get it

  4. You guys have great content, but it's just so weird that It always looks like I'm watching Jersey Shore but then instead of booze and girls they talk about tech, don't like the setting and the presenters look, all the rest is great, like, he's a good presenter, just the setting doesn't fit the content
