Apples Phil Schiller bashes Android alternatives of Face ID

Phil Schiller, Head of Marketing at Apple, is on the public relations trail since the launch of the iconic iPhone X. Whatever question that you may think of till now, it must have been answered at some point. But what Phil Schiller did in this interview with the Dutch website bright.nl is newsworthy.

As is usual in almost all of Schiller’s interviews, this one also touched the iPhone X and some of the attention went to the new Face ID feature that took over some of the functionalities of the Touch ID and the Home Button. As expected Phil Schiller kept on about how impressive the technology is and this time, he made sure to claim that competing manufacturers are not even close to it.

Schiller said in the interview that the company strives to create security measures that are not only extremely secure but can also recognize the permitted user without much hassle.

When the talk turned towards competing for Android smartphones using their Facial recognition systems, Schiller decided to destroy them with his mere words. According to Schiller, the Face ID was not just a novelty feature.

Schiller told that Apple had just decided to remove the signature home button in iPhone X which means that Touch ID was also left without a proper source. The home button was more than just a button to take the user to the home screen.

It was the host of Touch Id, it could activate the screen, it could bring up the multitasking screen, and it could also activate Apple Pay. Schiller said that if Apple was to remove the home button, it had to create something that was equally as functional as the Home Button, which is why the Face ID technology is so amazing. Schiller told that its competitors didn’t have these values when designing their technology.
