Face ID Your face is your password.
Security made simple. Face ID reinvented the way we unlock, log in and pay. Some of our most sophisticated technologies — the TrueDepth camera system, the Secure Enclave and the Neural Engine — make it the most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone. And even faster and easier to use.
- Adaptive recognition. Face ID uses advanced machine learning to recognise changes in your appearance. Wear a hat. Put on glasses. It even works with many types of sunglasses
- Do more with a glance. Face ID does so much more than unlock your iPhone. So you can forget about typing usernames and passwords. Now all it takes is a look.
- Unlock in an instant. The advanced Secure Enclave and new algorithms make Face ID even faster. So you’ll love it even more.
- Log in to your apps and accounts. Face ID works with the apps you already use — from banking and health apps to locked notes and private documents.
- Apple Pay in shops. No need to take out your wallet. Just hold your iPhone up to the reader. It’s actually more secure than using your physical card
- Apple Pay in apps and online. It’s never been easier to pay for a ride, a pizza delivery or a new pair of trainers.
The technology behind simplicity. The innovative technologies in the TrueDepth camera system work together in real time to recognise you in an instant.
- Dot projector More than 30,000 invisible dots are projected onto your face to build your unique facial map.
- Infrared camera An infrared camera reads the dot pattern, captures an infrared image, then sends the data to the Secure Enclave in the A12 Bionic chip to confirm a match.
- Flood illuminator Invisible infrared light helps identify your face even in the dark.
Yes and it really works…
