Beware! Arya Stark can now unlock your iPhone X

Apple revealed the much-awaited iPhone X along with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on Tuesday - and with it came memes and parodies. The good news is that all the three models in addition to featuring support for wireless inductive charging, also support fast charging through the cable.

Apple also made it possible to use the iPhone X's Face ID for Apple Pay among others and Face ID offers complete security. Last year, Apple refused to comply with a court order after federal prosecutors tried to unlocked an iPhone tied to a 2015 terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California.

Finally, Franken wants to know how exactly Apple figured out how to accurately scan people's faces to begin with, along with whether the system works correctly for all ages, races, and genders. Users can set up FaceID by letting their iPhone X make a detailed digital "map" of their face. Which is not all that different from the fingerprint scanner on other iPhones.

An "Emergency SOS" feature will allow iPhone users to temporarily disable TouchID and FaceID by quickly hitting the button five times. Apple had said in its press release: "All saved facial information is protected by the secure enclave to keep data extremely secure, while all of the processing is done on-device and not in the cloud to protect user privacy".

Speaking with Apple representatives, Yahoo's David Pogue was able to confirm that the device disabled Face ID after multiple failed attempts at recognising Federighi's face.

During the unveiling the tech giant said there was a one in a million chance of the wrong person unlocking another person's device with their face.

Precision-engineered to resist water and dust, your eyes will be greeted by 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays, working in tandem with True Tone to adjust the white balance of the display. They hit shops from September 22 and cost £699 to £949.

As senior vice president of Software Engineering Federighi picked up the $999 iPhone X, he announced that "unlocking it is as easy as looking at it and swiping up". Running on iOS 11, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are expected to be successes in its own right.
