Is this the future of the smartphone? Apple would have you think so.
Last year, it described the iPhone X as the future because of its edge-to-edge display and ground-breaking Face ID that replaced the conventional fingerprint sensor: just glance at the screen and it’ll unlock, but only when it recognises your unique, lovely face. This system replaced the conventional fingerprint sensor.
So, would it be a novelty one-off, with subsequent iPhones going back to fingerprints, or would Face ID be the way ahead?
