    Is anyone worried that scanning of one's face might further lead to theft of Identity? I mean Apple already basically has my fingerprints....what else would someone use my ugly mug for?

    Apple doesn't have your fingerprints and they wont have your face either. It's a non issue.

    No, they don't. Your fingerprints are stored in a secure enclave in the iPhone and Apple does not have access to them.

    it doesn't even store the fingerprint. just a mathematical representation of it.
    not an actual image of it.

    And Apple doesn't have it, it's stored encrypted locally on your device on a special chip.
