    Other How does Apple test its new technologies?

    We all know that Apple had tried waterproof technology on iPhone 6 before it officially announced that iPhone 7 is water-resistant. This just got me to think that maybe Apple has always tested its innovative technologies in its current generations to test their features and then release the next...

    I have TouchID, why do more elements of macOS not use it?

    TouchID has been available on Macs for over two years now, so why do I have to keep entering my password for things like Keychain Access? Surely that would have been one of the first system components which could have taken full advantage of the new authentication feature? I'm setting up a new...

    iPhone Authenticate to Expand Notifications (TouchID)

    Hey guys, am trying to wrap my head around as to why authenticating via TouchID to expand notifications are not available for iPhone 8 and older devices? I mean, that’s basically the same premise right? Apple’s actually halfway there when they introduced and option in Accessibility to remain on...

We all know Face ID hasn't been used by any of us yet so we can only take Apple's word for it to work as advertised. (Looking at those screaming how terrible Face ID is when they...

    FaceID with apps that use TouchID

    Does anyone know how FaceID works with apps that currently use TouchID for authentication? Will it "just work"? Or will developers have to add the functionality in which case I'll have to go back to manually entering my password until they get around to it?

    FaceID Multiple Users

    I read the security features for FaceID and the biggest issue I see for me is how it handles "changes to your face." It says if you change your face (shave thick beard off), FaceID will require a pin and then it will update your FaceID imprint. I often allow my family and friends to use my pin...

    Taking Photos: TouchID vs FaceID

    Like most of you, I hardly ever use my phone to take actual voice calls but rather use it as my main camera for pictures and video.

    Other Would you give up 3D Touch for TouchID in the display?

    It was interesting to read a report by Ming-Chi Kuo stating that 3D touch was a reason why the in-display TouchID sensor for the new iPhone X never made it to production. Here's a section from the article on 9to5mac.com: "While this year, Face ID is limited to the iPhone X, Kuo believes it will...
