2. Face ID is a leading iPhone X feature. Despite its utility, it won't come to low-cost products soon.
It fits in my pocket, I can use it one handed easily, and I also use it outdoors in a lifeproof case while working out.
It’s perfect for my use case and they have sold millions.

This feature was vetoed by a privacy engineer who explained how the feature could make it easier for authoritarian governments to see where a user has been. “
Damn, I would actually really like this feature.You can even go albums->places and see a map showing photos at the location you took them. When you touch the photos at the location they are displayed chronologically.
GeorgeBMac said:AppleInsider said:"And Apple Watch now, better supports e-bikes with an improved workout algorithm that more accurately calculates calories."Nice article….. right up until that sentence.
E-bikes are like mopeds or f@t chicks…. you really don’t want people to see you getting on one.
Also, you don’t burn calories or get a workout when the motor does the work for you.But, e-bikes are not going away. People on my trail are using them to commute to work and one of my grandson's friends rides his on a busy, 4 lane urban highway that does not have shoulders. The other day I was driving through a park at 28mph when an e-bike blew buy me like I was standing still.
At that point they will revert to toys for rich people.
blah64 said:Seriously? "The old-fashioned Touch ID"?
Why use such loaded language? It's not old-fashioned, it's just different. Works better with masks, allows use under a table without being a distraction to others, and various other advantages. Sure, faceID also has advantages, but those 2 words are just oddly biased and completely unnecessary.
Read the sentence with other options, like "traditional", i.e.The traditional Touch ID sensor is still in use below the display.
Or better yet, and more professional, no biased words at all, i.e.The Touch ID sensor is still in use below the display.Agree….. AppleInsider is great, until they start editorializing

SpaceX has launched thousands of satellites in the last two years and is already operating it's "internet from space" network all over the globe.
People mocked them two years ago......and now here we are, internet from frickin outer space!
I’m not hating. I’m just realistic. Musk’s timeline, as always, is overly optimistic. He’s also known for his vaporware products that are either several years delayed or nonexistent. Semi trucks that beat the cost of rail? Self-driving robo-taxis that make owners money? The lie of Hyperloop? Battery-swapping stations for Teslas? Cybertruck delays. $35K Model 3s? New battery tech when they’re just buying Panasonic batteries.
So far Musk has mostly kept the vaporware out of SpaceX, but he’s blowing smoke up people’s asses about Mars colonization and this satellite phone service beta available in 16 months. They’ll be lucky if they have enough birds in the sky to do internal testing of this service by end of 2023. After all, they still have NASA contracts to fulfill in that time too.So it's mostly hatred of Musk that drives you?
I bet two years ago you were saying Starlink would never happen. Yet here I am, sending you a message over Starlink internet!
That's not the only thing you're wrong about, the Version 2 satellites fit on Falcon 9 and that is their plan while they increase the flight cadence of the bigger Starship.
For more details you can watch this video:
It's fair to levy criticism. If Apple were making all these promises and not delivering on them, they'd be crucified by the tech press.
