Apple Patent Hints At iPhone With Under Screen Touch ID

It's also created to protect against spoofing, which means someone can't steal your phone and try to unlock it with a picture of your face.
Apple, after all, is a business and has its own motivations to get more people on board the new Face ID trend, without thinking too much about the eventual security repercussions.
What sort of data does Face ID collect?
Face ID captures both a 3-D and 2-D image of your face using infrared light while you're looking straight at the camera.
"Third-party apps can use system-provided APIs to ask the user to authenticate using Face ID or a passcode, and apps that support Touch ID automatically support Face ID without any changes", notes the document. "If you're concerned about this, we recommend using a passcode to authenticate". That requires you to come up with a secure string of digits - or, for extra security, a string of letters and numbers - to protect your privacy.
For added security, Face ID requires a password to unlock your device after five unsuccessful match attempts.
Apple says the timing of the new site isn't tied to any specific technology launch, but rather is seen as a necessary refresh after not having refreshed the privacy information for two years.

According to the white paper, the only time Face ID data can leave your device is when you opt in to something called "Face ID Diagnostics".

And though, like their literary namesakes, Romeo and Juliet are destined to be together, the components have tripped up the tech giant because Romeo takes longer to manufacture than Juliet, causing a supply imbalance and slowing down production.
The device has just been turned on or restarted.
Apple says its algorithms learn to adapt to appearance changes over time. If the model is good enough, it may keep using it for an unspecified "finite number of additional unlocks before that data is discarded".
Every time you wake the iPhone X, it looks for your face.
