Friday Apple Rumors: iPhone X Owners Can Disable Face ID

17 Setiembre 2017

Kuo suggests that the iPhone X demand could outlast its supplies and lead to delayed shipments until mid-2018.

Some critics cited Apple's decision to delay the launch of the iPhone X, which the company has dubbed "the future of the smartphone".

The iPhone X may not be the monster hit Apple is hoping for, according to an influential tech analyst.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said in the note to investors he now estimates Apple will be able to produce just 40 million handsets before the end of the year, down from an earlier estimate of 50 million.

During Apple's iPhone X launch presentation, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller described Face ID as "better" than Touch ID.

"We think some will be concerned about market acceptance of Face ID and the pricing of the iPhone X, before robust pre-order result is confirmed", Kuo said in a note to investors.

While production delays tend to be commonplace with any new iPhone release, the delay associated with the iPhone X is somewhat unprecedented. The analyst also notes that it may take even longer for this to happen. The phone will be released on September 22. With iOS 11, both iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus support HEIF and HEVC for up to two times compression and storage for twice the photos and videos. iPhone 8 Plus features dual 12-megapixel cameras and introduces Portrait mode with Portrait Lighting, bringing dramatic studio lighting effects to iPhone, allowing customers to capture stunning portraits with a shallow depth-of-field effect in five different lighting styles. Machine learning is then used to create facial landmarks and add lighting over contours of the face, all happening in real time, giving customers even more power to express themselves through photography. This is the nature of the game and cannot be corrected. Lightning Docks in color-matching metallic finishes will also be available for $49 (US).

There has been some speculation that Apple might bring the technology back in a successor to the iPhone X. On the surface, this makes sense - Apple would have additional time to work out the kinks in the technology to make it viable for deployment in an iPhone that'll likely ship in the tens, if not hundreds, of millions in a year.
