Apple News subscription service preview found in iOS 12.2 beta

Apple News subscription service preview found in iOS 12.2 beta It would offer access to newspapers and magazines for a monthly fee. The images line up with The New York Times report from last October that reported Apple is close to launching its own subscription service inside the News app, and it builds on Apple’s acquisition of a digital magazine subscription service called Texture, which was billed as the “Netflix of magazines,” earlier last year. The splash page shows that the subscription service might be called “Apple News Magazines,” and payment will be handled through the iTunes store.

Many assumed that the problem was that Face ID system failed to recognise Federighi. Face ID worked as it was designed to.” The news will reassure those concerned that Face ID may not recognise their unique visage, but remains a warning sign for users who fear the feature won’t live up

The technology that enables Face ID is some of the most advanced hardware and software that we’ve ever created. The TrueDepth camera captures accurate face data by projecting and analyzing over 30,000 invisible dots to create a depth map of your face and also captures an infrared image of your

Though Face ID on the iPhone remains the most reliable facial recognition scheme you can find on a smartphone today, it’s not without its shortcomings. While Face ID does a remarkable job of identifying individual users and detecting fraudulent authentication efforts, it’s still possible for twins of family members who closely resemble each other to trip up the software. Back when the iPhone X first launched, you may recall a flood of videos demonstrating this edge-case vulnerability sprouting up on YouTube.

Face ID hasn’t changed much since its first incarnation, but that’s poised to change once Apple releases its 2019 iPhone lineup. According to a number of credible sources, Apple’s forthcoming iPhone models will incorporate a next-gen version of Face ID that will be both faster and more reliable. What’s more, Apple has been busy working on techniques to better discern between twins, siblings, and other family members who happen to bear an uncanny resemblance to each other.

Apple's next low-cost iPads might skip Face ID

Apple's next low-cost iPads might skip Face ID If the redesigned iPad Pro gave you hope that Apple would deliver a similar overhaul for lower-cost iPads, you might want to temper your expectations. Code sleuther Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that the iOS 12.2 beta references four new iPad configurations that don't include Face ID, suggesting they'll stick to Touch ID and thus a more conventional design. This isn't shocking when Apple is likely sticking to a lower price point, but it does suggest that it could be a while before the company's depth-sensing camera tech is truly affordable.

And suddenly Faced ID stopped working on my iPhone X– bringing the smooth sailing time to a Now, try using Face ID again. It should work now. If it doesn’t, move on to the next solution. Nobody knows what would happen tomorrow, do they? That 's why it always pays to take extra cautious so

Apple has a facial -recognition feature that 's exclusive to the new iPhone X. Called Face ID Apple described this new technology as the "future of how we will unlock our smartphones and protect our Apple said it worked with thousands of people across the world and took over a billion images, and

In a new patent published this week by the USPTO, Apple details a method by which Face ID would be able to take advantage of “subepidermal imaging” in order to more accurately identify users. As the name implies, subepidermal imaging would be able to identify features underneath the skin, such as blood vessels and veins.

The patent, which can be viewed in its entirety over here, reads in part:

Assessment of subepidermal features during the facial recognition authentication process may be useful in distinguishing between users that have closely related facial features (e.g., siblings or twins).

In addition, assessment of subepidermal features may be used to prevent unlocking of the device by an unauthorized user wearing a mask or using another face replication method.

Android Q might include an equivalent to Apple's Face ID

Android Q might include an equivalent to Apple's Face ID To date, Android phone makers who've wanted to include face recognition have had to craft their own secure solutions or else use basic face detection that you can fool with a photo. 

According to a Bloomberg report published last week, Apple is working on a 2018 iPad Pro that ' ll take the edge-to-edge display and Face ID sensor from the iPhone In order to get the TrueDepth camera that Face ID needs into the iPhone X, Apple carved out a notch at the top of the new iPhone’s screen.

Apple 's new smartphone, iPhone X, uses a recognition system called ' Face ID ' to unlock the Face ID uses a combination of light projectors and sensors to take several images of your facial features. Collectively called the 'TrueDepth camera system', Apple says these technologies work together to

The patent further explains that while outward facing facial features between relatives can appear similar, vein patterns “in the subepidermal layers of the face are typically unique to an individual” and even vary between identical twins.

Thus, assessment of the veins (and vein patterns) in the subepidermal layers of the face may be used to distinguish between siblings, twins, or other users with similar facial features on the surface of the face. In some embodiments, absorption properties of blood at a selected wavelength may be used to detect vein or other blood vessels in the subepidermal layers. Absorption properties of blood vessels may be useful in differentiating vein features in the eyes of the user.

While it’s not likely we’re going to see Apple implement this supidermal imaging technology this year, the patent illustrates that Apple is still working incredibly hard to enhance overall Face ID functionality and make its already secure biometric authentication scheme that much more robust.

As a point of interest, the video below shows Face ID failing when presented with two family members who look alike.
