IF i had to take a guess, it’s liberating. Because if have him more control. What is one of the reasons a regular shoot takes 6-8 weeks. Set up, and multiple takes. And large crews and casts. Remember he wrote sex lies and videotape in a single week. Using iPhones probably gives him freedom to move around and not lug around 10k cameras on tracks and Dolly’s and such. It also allows for him to shoot in an unobtrusive way which. Helps get more realistic performances becuase they may or may not realize the camera is there.
volcan said:One down side to wireless charging is that you can't pick up the phone and use it while charging. Might be convenient for cars that offer that capability because you are not supposed to pick up the phone while driving anyway, but I'd rather just have a battery that lasts all day under heavy usage so that I only need to charge at night where plugging it in is no big deal. I imagine a wireless charger is going to be a bit bulky, so not really that convenient to carry around.
I suspect face id is a bi product of the true depth camera. I suspect apple really developed the 3D truedepth camera for 3D AR purposes and possible gestures.
After all, do you think Apple purchase Matiao and face shift and all those machine learning companies just so they can create face id? Or do you think they purchased them so they can create an improved and better AR platform and product that they can subsequently profit from! I vote for the later. I think stuff like animoji and other ar things are the real reason behind the purchase.
Also consisder, Apple innovative products incrementally. Touch ID was released in the 5s so they can perfect it and work out all the bugs before they launched Apple Pay with the 6/+ and so on. This is released this year and next year Apple will build upon it and probably reveal a wider purpose.

Less than 3 weeks to go. Can’t wait.

I see how they have become a trillion dollar company. Ugh.....it may be time to reevaluate my loyalty to Apple....
