Trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has expressed his belief that the Cupertino tech giant won’t integrate an infrared depth-sensing system on the rear of iPhone models to be released in 2019. This isn’t necessary a bad thing, here’s why.
If a customer reports that their iPhone X is having Face ID issues that a TrueDepth camera repair is unable to resolve, Apple Stores and third-party technicians are now authorized to issue a whole-unit replacement instead of providing a same-unit display repair.
Apple permits developers to obtain visual face maps and track more than 50 facial muscle in real time via the TrueDepth camera, and now Snapchat has finally rolled out cool new iPhone X-powered lenses in its mobile app that it promised months ago last September.
A new report claims that Finisar, a supplier of laser parts for iPhone X, is ramping up its new Apple-backed plant in Sherman, a small Texas town. The manufacturing plant will hopefully be in production by sometime in October as Finisar remains focused on “making Sherman the VCSEL capital of the world.”
