    All these things are determined somehow else perhaps just like acceptence of 5G, oprator could charge and continue with 4G for coming years before something exceptional regarding radioactive waves, thereby could reduce burden of more investment while investment is done somewhere else to make some privilege for working class

    For every technological feature there is a way of "turning around" it.

    To people that say Touch ID is better. Most people that wear masks also wear gloves! So Touch ID wouldn’t work as well.

    americans, too fat to draw the lock pattern, so theyll print their faces onto their masks to avoid wasting a dozen calories.

    i wouldn't anyway buy a mass produced 3D face mask and set that mask as FaceID for my phone, as it would greatly decrease the security of the phone, with millions others buying the same 3D facemask.
    But, it is so saddening to see the innovative lady saying she wouldn't PRODUCE and sell the masks it order to appeal a politically-correct leftist media narrative that producing efficiently (= profitable) a good that is in shortage (so it's needed in the market) would somehow be immoral. 🙁 And even worse, seeing all this on WSJ.

    To everyone saying touchID was better, it wasn’t. Anyone can unlock your phone when you’re unconscious/sleeping while FaceID won’t if your eyes are close. Also try unlocking your phone with TouchID when you’re wearing gloves as well.

    this is stupid. Then will not recognize you without the mask. There is a way to configure it with a piece of paper hidding a quarter of your face during setting up.
