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

    They need something for XS or whatever. TouchID 2.0 anyone?

    Could you set up your second appearance as a horizontal scan?

    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.

    Interesting. Does horizontally scanning your face now work?

    Not sure would be good if you could set it like normal with normal scan and trick horizontal scan :)

    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.

    Nope doesn’t work. It is looking for a face, with eyes on top, mouth on the bottom.

    The dot matrix is as far as I know hardware driven, not software driven, When I was testing the X, I tried different orientations and only the expected vertical upright orientation was successful.

    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.

    And if they bring this to the IPP, like many I use the Smart Keyboard with it. Landscape is my norm for the iPad.

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

    Probably, though it would only work for the one horizontal orientation you used to set it up.

    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.
