On Friday, Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi joined Daring Fireball’s John Gruber on an episode of The Talk Show. During the interview, Federighi talked about the iPhone X, privacy, security, and much more.
In the discussion, they revisited the on-stage curfuffle 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.
Federighi went on to say that even though Apple loves Touch ID, Face ID is “that much better.” He went on to say that he believes that facial recognition is the future of biometric authentication.
Much of the rest of the discussion covered the same topics that were discussed in Federighi’s earlier interview with TechCrunch.
