Greg Joswiak over de toekomst van Face ID
Tijdens de introductie can de iPhone X twee jaar geleden werd voor het eerst Face ID aan de wereld getoond. Sindsdien heeft Apple steeds meer devices uitgebracht met Face ID, waaronder de 11-inch en de 12,9-inch iPad Pro modellen, die in maart van dit jaar uitkwamen.

Meer van de plannen van Apple met Face ID komen we te weten door het vraaggesprek dat Apple’s Vice President of Product Marketing Greg Joswiak met de Engelse krant Daily Express. Daar legt hij veel uit over Face ID, waarbij overduidelijk wordt dat deze techniek voorlopig niet zal verdwijnen, in tegendeel. Dat blijkt bijvoorbeeld uit de volgende zin: “Face ID is an important technology for us and it's something we continue to invest in.”

Hieronder de belangrijkste citaten uit dit interview, waaruit veel is op te maken:

It really started with Touch ID six years ago which is something that we introduced on the iPhone 5s back in 2013.

Touch ID was the first mainstream biometric security system and customers loved it. It changed the way that people secured their device, because at that time, even though it's hard to imagine, many didn't even have a passcode.

It's a solution that remains and we still use it on our iPads, iPod Touch and even the Macs - it's a great system.

But we wanted to improve biometric security even further with something more secure and convenient to use and that's why we came up with Face ID.

We first shipped Face ID two years ago on the iPhone X and we thought it was even more natural than Touch ID with it unlocking your device with just a glance.

We continue to make it better, easier to use and faster - in fact we made it 30 per cent faster in iOS 13 which will be shipping this fall.

It's good to take a step back and look at the technological beast of that tiny little notch area of your iPhone. There's so much important and sophisticated technology inside.

There's a speaker, a microphone, an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor plus the all scanning components of the Face ID system.

We think it's an important story to tell because we continue to expand the use of Face ID.

In antwoord op de vraag of Face ID in meer producten zijn opwachting zal gaan maken:

Certainly, we'll continue to put it on more devices but also Touch ID will continue to have a role - it's a great technology on our iPad lineup and we don't see it going away anytime soon.

Op de vraag waarom concurrenten niet met vergelijkbare systemen zijn gekomen:

This is a pretty costly system. Our competitors think they can create something similar with a single camera and that’s often what they want to do.

Unfortunately, there's a reason why this is costly; there's a reason why it has all these components because security is night and day over someone trying to do this off a 2D image.

Over de vooruitgang van Face ID:

Face ID on the iPhone X was very good but where we are now it's much more tolerant of different angles and it's much faster than it was. Our dream of this was to make it natural - it was very natural on the iPhone X - now it's incredibly natural.

We do our best to engineer our products from the very beginning with privacy in mind and we do everything we can to continue to make them more private.

Sometimes we've found we haven't done as good a job as we should, we try to be public about it, we try to be transparent about it and we try to figure out what we are going to do about it and our track record speaks for itself.
