Every year Apple delights the world with hardware and features that push the limits of futurism. This time it’s the iPhone X and facial recognition. Competitors boast of similar technology, but nothing compares to the iPhone’s 3 Dimensional depth specs and the detail encoded to recognize facial features. There’s only one glitch, it doesn’t work for ugly people.
Many have mentioned errors with the new feature and complaints continue to roll in at Apple’s Northern California headquarters. Although the company cites and impending update that should fix the problem, many in the tech community have noticed a trend where facial recognition struggles when a user’s facial features are asymmetrical.
Heavy makeup users also mentioned problems with their device, claiming phones won’t open if they’ve applied cosmetics. Hopefully, the latest update will fix these issues and allow all users access to the same features, irregardless of beauty.
