While there is inherently nothing wrong with Apple’s Face ID system, we suppose that it could always be improved upon, such as being able to process facial recognition faster, and maybe improvements in low-light situations. The good news is that it looks like come 2019, we might be able to expect an improved Face ID system.
This is according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who claims that in 2019, Apple is expected to introduce an upgraded Face ID system. Some of the changes that we might be able to expect include lowering the impact of invisible light from the environment, thanks to the use of a flood illuminator that should help make the recognition more accurate and better.
This new upgraded system is expected to be available across all iPhone models released in 2019. It is unclear if this will be the only upgrade to Face ID, but presumably the use of the flood illuminator should address some of the issues we mentioned above, such as better detection of the user’s face while in the dark.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but Kuo has been known to be extremely accurate with his predictions with regards to Apple’s products, so it stands to reason that he could be right on the money again.
