Facial recognition: iPhone today, tomorrow the airport?


Apple unveiled two new iPhones on Tuesday, including the highly-anticipated iPhone X which boasts facial recognition and wireless charging. SAN FRANCISCO -- If the idea of unlocking a phone with your face seems creepy, you better get used to it. Facial recognition is here, and it will only be more prevalent in the years to come. Apple got the Internet talking this week about the possibilities of facial recognition and what it portends for the future when it introduced the iPhone X. The new top of the line model, coming in November, uses your facial features to unlock the phone, as well as to authenticate purchases through Apple Pay.
