Many iPhone and iPad apps use the devices' fingerprint scanners for security. Face ID has a way to keep pace with natural changes (ageing, facial hair, makeup) by augmenting its stored mathematical representation of the users' face.
The facial recognition sensors can animate the emojis you send in messages, meaning your adorable panda picture can actually read out your words and move its lips.
However, face detection revealed unexpected problems. The vast majority of the circumstances, you have to enter postal division of your territory to discover the genuine outstanding units in your general vicinity.
