    When you’ve just touted how reliable FaceID is and it fails the first 3x on stage during the demo.

    Ouch.

    That black tab is annoying. Can you imagine watching TV with one side of the screen having a black tab? How will movie watching work? Will it block out a part of the movie?

    And it definitely looks slower than TouchID as well.

    Usually Apple nails this stuff so maybe it will be awesome. I don't want my iPhone unlocked everytime I look at it though so not sure about it right now.

    I think that’s a legitimate concern.

    It seems super jittery too, if we’re being nit picky (attention to detail, amirite)

    That Eyes Wide Shut mask on Craig, genuinely freaked me out

    Agreed. Even after all of the propaganda, I still think it looks bad.

    Alright enough of the poop emojis, what’s the price for this sucker?

    It’s been pretty quiet in the auditorium in general. Either the audience is exceptionally respectful to not disturb the presentation with their praise, or they’re not that enthused...

    From what I saw, you still have to swipe up to unlock, so just looking at it would not unlock the phone. Well, when Face ID actually works...lol.

    Dunno, but failing to see compelling justification for too much of a mark up.

    This is my primary concern as well. Did he say we have to double click the side button too?

    Double tap the power button, look at the screen and then reach for the pay terminal.

    The Ive promo video with faces flipping and overlaying the SoC, feels Orwellian to me

    So we hand you’re holding wrong, now we can have you’re looking at it wrong.

    That was hard to watch.

    Sometimes my finger I'd takes a second touch. I am betting it works quite well.

    You can bet a few butts puckered when it did not work on stage.

    Perhaps it just rejects Craig’s face and wasn’t a software mistake. :D

    That Wayne Gretzky quote seemed like an apologist play to me :D
