Will The iPhone X Facial Unlock After Shaving?

Published October 20, 2017

For some reason I decided not to shave for some time and with the SMX East conference coming up next week, I decided to clean up a bit before I get on stage for several sessions.

Apple claims that the iPhone X (ten) facial unlock feature will work on the same individual with and without hair on their face.  So if you grow facial hair, it will continue to work and if you shave it off, it will also continue to work.   

I took a selfie before I shaved and then a selfie after I shaved and I looked at both photos and I asked myself, how will that work.  Look at this animated GIF of me before and after the shave.  Do you think the iPhone facial unlock feature will work with this mug?

Trust me, I will test it and I am sure many others will test it as well once it comes out - although it might take me a few weeks...
