Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President of software engineering at Apple, today joined The Talk Show by John Gruber, where he likened uncertainties over Face ID to the concerns that customers expressed when Touch ID first launched in 2013 in the iPhone 5s.

Honestly, we're just all counting the days that customers can finally get their hands on these. Because I think just like with Touch ID, initially people thought oh, 'Apple's done something that's totally not going to work and I'm not a believer and I'm not gonna use this feature.'

Now everyone's worried because they can't imagine life without Touch ID. We're going to see exactly the same thing with Face ID.

And when it comes to a discussion about that saw Face ID fail to authenticate his face during Tuesday's event, Federighi said he was shocked when it happened because the feature normally "just works." He went on to say he understands the uncertainty, but that it will "melt away" once people experience the product. "You don't even think about it," he said.


At the same time, the Apple executives said Apple believes Face ID is the future of biometric authentication system. In addition, Federighi also reiterated that, besides some of the products with a shielded infrared coating, most of the sunglasses will not affect Face ID's proper functioning, he also emphasized that is you can turn off the "attention aware" feature that requires eye contact for Face ID to unlock, but it might be less security,

TechCrunch while also interviewed Craig Federighi, which offers a few additional Face ID details like developers do not have access to Face ID sensor data; if there are 5 failed attempts to recognize Face ID, you’ll see a passcode request; if you haven’t used Face ID for 48 hours, you’ll see a passcode request.


Lastly, Federighi adds that if you’re wearing a garment that covers your face, Face ID won’t work. But if you’re wearing a helmet or scarf, it works just fine. Interview with Apple’s Craig Federighi answers some burning questions about Face ID, please click here
