Apple has been suspected of replacing Touch ID on the iPhone X with FaceID — and looking deeper into the iOS 11 firmware has revealed details on how FaceID setup will likely work.
Guilherme Rambo tweeted some of the setup steps, which include enrolling a face and being asked to move your head around gently, in order to complete a circle that surrounds your face.
Users with an iPhone X will likely just look at the camera to authenticate, aligning the face with the line drawing overlaid on the screen. When the iPhone makes a positive identification, an animation spins and is replaced with a smiling line drawing.
Previously, AppleInsider reported that FaceID may be able to perform the facial scanning even when the phone is laying flat on the table.
