    That all assumes they're dropping Touch ID, which I still doubt. 
    This year Apple will release iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, next spring an updated SE and possibly more MacBooks all featuring Touch ID. STOP ASSUMING FOR STUPID REASONS Apple is dropping Touch ID this Fall.
    Your shit logic makes me think you're a troll just trolling to annoy people and illicit responses, just like mine.
    So there's one troll and multiple idiots taking the bait?

    There are smart reasons why some might assume Apple is dropping TID, though they may be absolutely incorrect. There are dumb reasons for assuming they're not. Assuming anything would seem to be the problem.

    Losing your 'shit' over an alleged troll's remark is silly but provides a small measure of entertainment.

    I just cannot seem to figure out how Face ID will work with Shades, Hats, Beards,....When a simple finger touch does the trick.....It's got to work in milliseconds or it will be a PITA!!!
    You said it yourself. It has to work. If it didn't work, it wouldn't be about to replace Touch ID on the flagship iPhone next month. But it does work, so it is going to.

    Face ID is going to use hundreds, possibly thousands of unique data points from your head, and it will continue to learn (just like Touch ID does) with each new successful scan. Things like glasses, beards, hats are a drop in the bucket. Even a full ski mask wouldn't be enough to trick it since it will still be comparison measurements and dimensions that you can't hide.

    This level of detail and sophistication is (clearly) way beyond the thought capacity of people.

    I don't understand why you are so against having both FaceID and TouchID
    Because it is patently absurd. You don't need 2 keys to your front door. You don't need 2  potential points of failure for something that is a convenience feature meant to alleviate passcode/password fatigue.

    But more importantly and beyond all of that - it is abundantly clear to anyone even somewhat paying attention that this iPhone was designed from the ground up WITHOUT a Home Button and WITHOUT Touch ID. I'm getting irritated with the lack of understanding at this point.

    The new iPhone was designed from the ground up without a Home Button, or Touch ID. If you don't know this by now, you haven't been paying attention.
    Paying attention to who? Analysts? Leakers? While you may be guessing correctly, I don't see how you can support that as a certainty.
    Paying attention to SOURCES, ones that are known to be 100% accurate, especially this close to a launch.
