    Mm...can’t wait to get the iPad Pro and say good riddance to the stupid touch i.d. Lots of errors specially when I am cooking.

    I like the Face ID. It was my first night with my XS Max when I found out a small problem. I wear a CPAP mask going to sleep, and naturally the Face ID couldn't recognize me. So, I like it in the morning, but hate it at night lol.

    Face ID very much useful than PIN and touch ID

    From Apple Pay to password manager to banking apps very accessible and even simple authentication than touch ID

    No ID, No Entry ika nga nila...

    But I don't use any...I literally have nothing to hide...in fact, anyone in my family can use my iDevices for calls, for texts, for the apps, anything short of using it as a weapon...of course at the end of the day I know what's been done to it and where they've gone on the web *wink, wink*

    I prefer to have both options. Both are still not perfect. Touch ID doesn’t work well when you have sweaty fingers, Face ID doesn’t work well when you’re wearing sunglasses.

    I prefer both because I find it frustrating sometimes when my phone is beside my laptop and I'm not in front of it I cannot use face ID to unlock my phone. But if given a choice to just choose one I would prefer Touch ID. If the promise of the new ultrasonic fingerprint sensors can deliver then the problem with sweaty and wet fingers will go away.

    Mm...try touch i.d. while wearing a glove. Place: wintry Northern Japan several years ago. I wore a capacitive glove ( so I can swipe, press and use my iPhone 7 Plus). Stupid touch i.d. does not work with the stupid glove. I had to resort to pressing the unlock code every single time (dozen of times each day) because touch i.d. is stupid. :mad:

    See the problem?

    Now, no problem.

    Yes I do, but both have problems and limitations. It’s a matter of preference. I very rarely wear gloves nor do I have sweaty hands nor do i engage on activities that will render my fingers wet and dirty for touch ID not to work. If only Apple will implement both to make everyone happy. But I think Apple is going Face ID exclusively moving forward and that’s not a big deal for me since I don’t dislike Face ID.

    FaceID for the win. It works flawlessly now with iOS 12.

    I prefer FaceID now more than the TouchID as having sweaty hands is one heck of an inconvenience.

    Aside feom Face ID, i’d love to have touch ID screen enabled so it doesnt take up space (no home button needed).

    Face ID all the way. It's just too convenient! Never going back to touch ID which doesn't work for me 4/5 times because of my sweaty palms.

    Strangely, none of the above. Am I the only person who doesn't even lock my phone? Perhaps, since my device is in sight or is with me most of the time, I didn't see the need even for a simple PIN to secure it. I could imagine the many hours saved just from locking/unlocking my device :D:D:D

    Mmm...should be standard on the next gen iPhone. Will follow the face ID unlock-any-which-way of the new iPad Pros.

    Anybody....what is touch ID? Is it new tech? What’s dat? :ROFLMAO:

    FaceID for me. Feels like the there's no security authentication, but there is.

    Both. Nowadays. I'm finding it difficult to use face ID with my facemask always on.
