Is the wait going to be as bad as I think? Woke up this morning and checked my bank accounts. All but one of them utilizes Touch ID to enter. When enetering the one that doesn't, it always feels like hard labor. Having to go back to manual input while we wait for those apps to get facial recognition is going to be gruesome. Just wonder if it will make for a bad iPhone experience. I know it's a first world problem but the reality is we have all become accustomed to the ease of Touch ID. Having to wait for all of these companies to allow facial recognition is going to be horrible. They are going to take forever.
There's three scenarios:
1) OS will show a facial recognition prompt instead of TouchID whenever apps request TouchID on the OLED/X/Edition iPhone.
2) OS will not show a facial recognition prompt, and fall back to a passcode prompt instead of facial recognition whenever apps request TouchID on the OLED/X/Edition iPhone.
3) Apps will crash or stop working because TouchID doesn't exist on OLED/X/Edition iPhone.
Most likely it will be (1) but could also be (2). I don't think Apple will let apps crash or stop working when they request TouchID, that would be bad for user experience. Plus they would've announced support for facial recognition in SDK at WWDC so apps can be updated to use it, although they might announce it during the keynote (updates to BiometricKit to support facial recognition) so devs can update their apps in time for OLED iPhone release.
