Apple might be converting to Face ID for all devices in 2018

Face ID is now exclusive to the iPhone X, but a new report from noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that this may not be the case next year.

All this sounds very sci-fi, and it's not clear how well the technology works because the phone isn't out yet, but according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo Android manufacturers have already made shifts towards the face detection technology.

A new report by analytics firm IHS Markit has named the Apple iPhone 7 as the top-selling smartphone of 2017. Those features are likely to include the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera, which supports the device's Face ID for biometric security.

The iPhone X saw the first radical redesign of the iPhone since 2014's iPhone 6, in that it covered the front panel nearly entirely with the OLED display, physically eliminating the space for Touch ID to live under a home button. Beginning of 2018, the inside is predicting that all future iPhones will completely ditch the TouchID and use Face ID, which means soon iPhones will not have a home screen button soon. Recall, Apple reportedly encountered some speed bumps with the TrueDepth camera due to the complexity of the components involved. But there's another incredible feature hiding in the iPhone X that people aren't really talking about, and it could lead to truly great things next year. In a nutshell, the iPhone X uses a new design that allows the internal board to occupy far less space.

Apple has also had to contend with media reports that the iPhone X could be delayed beyond the November launch date. Still when it comes for the iPhone purchase there are many factors gets involve: - affordability -storage size need- or because of the increasing reliance on the cloud with features like iCloud or Apple Music streaming.

"With legislative efforts now focused around USA tax reform, we think Apple could be one of the biggest beneficiaries in our space", RBC analyst Amit Daryanani said in a report. Developers will also be able to create apps that utilise Face ID. Fiscal 2018 actually started at the beginning of this month because the last three months of the year are Apple's first fiscal quarter. However, he added that he only expected the feature to come to the Pro range; don't expect to see regular iPads with face scanners next year.
