Apple’s New FaceID For iPhone X Fails At Special Event [Video]

Subscribe to Classic Rock 105.1 on

Apple held their special event at the new Steve Jobs Theater. At least one part of it didn’t go as planned.

One of the features of Apple’s newest/best phone, the Apple X is the FaceID. It can be used as an unlocking mechanism that recognizes your face in order to unlock your phone. However, when Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi tried to use it to open the iPhone X, it…failed.

As he’s trying to explain how easy it is to use, the FaceID failed, and the normal unlock screen where you type in your password popped up. You can hear the disappointment in his voice as this happens.

It seems like he immediately grabs another iPhone X, and it works fine.

This could mean one of two things. There’s still a lot of bugs to be worked out. Or, it was something that happens very infrequently, and it just so happened to pop up at the exact wrong time.

Oh, the phone starts at a disgusting $999.

What do you think of the failed FaceID login?
