  • Inside Apple's A11 Bionic Chip
  • Apple Talks Face ID
  • The Face ID Rumor Surprise

We kick off today's email with my thoughts and observations on Apple's chat with Lance Ulanoff over at Mashable regarding the A11 Bionic chip. The discussion then takes a closer look at Face ID. Craig Federighi, SVP of software engineering, did two interviews last week regarding Face ID. The email turns to how the vast majority of iPhone rumors heading into last week ended up being wrong when it came to Apple's intention with facial recognition on iPhone. We then conclude with my thoughts on Face ID's future within the Apple product line.
