Sad face. Wonder if this will be enabled via hardware in the new iPhone this year.

Honestly I would just take a higher success rate over horizontal scanning at this point. But I'd think scanning from different angles would help improve the overall scanning reliability.

That won’t be the beta because the only reason to have FaceID in landscape is the iPads and thus including it would be a huge leak before the hardware is announced.
Well I definitely have a need to use FaceId in landscape mode with my iPhone X. Whenever my phone is in my car cradle it is in landscape mode and I have to take it out of the cradle to unlock it.

Why would they be leaking new hardware? We all know FaceID is coming to the new iPads one way or another.

As stated above, I would like my iPhone X to unlock in landscape, for example in the car.

Dang, I was hoping this was coming to the X. I just assumed it was when I heard them mention it for iPad.

It's already been leaked.

The clock on iOS 12 beta has moved to the side for iPad, leaving a wide open space for a notch. Also, developers have found references to Face ID Unlock on iPad.

More than likely, horizontal Face ID only works on Face ID 2.0 hardware coming this fall.

Doubt it needs new hardware... The interpretation of the scan the IR-dots make is a software update, no?

Apple will seriously use this as a "feature" in an upcoming model. Tech has stalled so much that things that should simply be a given will now be features. I mean, Memoji? Like they couldn't of added that with Animojis? Face ID was touted as a feature. It's a way to unlock your phone, that takes as long as Touch ID. lol.
