iPhone 8 May Be Able to Scan Your Face While Lying Flat

New references found in the HomePod's firmware suggest that the iPhone 8 may be able to scan your face while lying flat.

Evidence of a new facial recognition feature (PearlID) for the iPhone 8 was discovered last month alongside confirmation of the device's design. There were also references to infrared, a feature which could facilitate facial recognition in the dark and at night.

iHelpBR has now found references to 'AXRestingPearlUnlock' and 'com.apple.acessibility.resting.pearl.unlock' that appear to corroborate reports of Face ID working while the iPhone is lying flat.

In early July, Bloomberg reported that Apple's system can allegedly scan your face within a few hundred milliseconds and can even work with the iPhone lying flat on a table. A source also claimed it takes in more data points than Touch ID, making it more secure.

Finally, iHelpBR has also spotted references to APPS_USING_PEARL and PEARL_AUTOLOCK_FOOTER suggesting that apps will be able to authenticate users with facial recognition and that perhaps your iPhone could auto lock if your face is no longer detected.

I heard it will also be able to make you breakfast, make the bed, pet the dog, & do the bills. Yeah! The new iphone will do everything! Yeah, you suckers keep dreaming while I use my S8+ which I can operate while it's locked with voice. Can you do that with Siri? Nope. Just go & buy yourselves the S8, for that's all the stupid new iPhone is trying to be, but won't.

Apparently Touch ID is gone for the iPhone 8/whatever... Apple knows very well that the new feature needs to be damn impressive for scans to work flawlessly, needs less drama and frights tho.

I believe that unlocking using password will still work being the last barricade, so in case u'r face got changed, I suppose you still can unlock the device with password, and then re-scan u'r face.
