    Seems there are more issues than it not recognising bosses.

    The answer is don't let your "evil twin" use your iPhone. LOL.

    Yeah, I read that warning some time ago. Seems silly, but there is something to it. But like the article says, not many parents are going to give their young child a 999 phone.

    I don’t use Touch ID to unlock my phone and would never use facial recognition for it either. Passcode all the time.

    I like using Touch ID on my iPhone and it seems to work well, however, on my new 10.5" iPad Pro I can't get it to consistently recognize my fingerprint. Maybe it's because I use the iPad in landscape mode all the time. Touch ID works better in portrait mode.

    No, I use it for everything else (except unlocking) with my iPhone and iPad Pro all the time. No issues, unless I'm not resting heavy enough.

    Charlie, train it in landscape mode and see if that works better. And if you train the same finger to more than one "finger" in the settings, that is supposed to work better, too.

    I've been too lazy to redo the Fingerprint in landscape mode but I will definitely give that a go.

    Just curious, but…

    I was just about to ask if it can be "reset" or "updated" somehow…???

    I love touch ID. It works well for me no matter what mode I am using. I do move my finger all over and reposition it as it scans. Now facial recognition.... that could be haphazard for me. I have had two laptops that offered it and neither worked well. One was an HP the other an Alienware. It seems in the morning I don't look like myself! Shocking I know. I am in no hurry to have another system tell me I look "different" in the morning. I also have an issue with the full screen of the iPhone X. I want to hold one first and even then I still think my 7+ will be fine for now.

    Yes, you just select any fingerprint you've already done and redo it and it gets updated. I think you can also just delete it so that's the equivalent of reset.

    And I assume the owner would also need to enter their user password or some ID to make such changes of course.

    Yes, I had to enter my passcode before it would allow me to do another fingerprint. This time I followed Jake's advice and used my thumb print in landscape mode. I'll have to see how well it works as I do not use my iPad Pro every day.

    I also have an issue with the full screen of the iPhone X.

    That iPhone X "full screen" deceiving B.S. would really annoy me, especially if I could even consider the absurd to me price, for even a moment, but in all honesty, it seems that Apple is just doing and following the same description as other competing cellphone brands are doing and using part of the "full screen" for other things other than a "full display".

    Design and function wise, I'd say Apple blew both and could have done a lot better, especially with that "special" "Ten Year" anniversary model.

    Most of the complaints regarding the full screen have to do with the "notch" and the placing of cellular and connecting information in the rabbit ears of the notch. The OLED screen that Apple is using on the iPhone Ten is the same size as the 7+ and 8+, however, with a much higher concentration of pixels. That supposedly equates to a screen with more viewing area. Anyway, for $1K and up it ought to also be able to cook barbeque ribs Texas style!

    I never have trouble with my iPad Pro 10.5 in either mode unlocking but I primarily use it in landscape.

    On the X the OLED display to me makes it worth it. Ever seen a proper OLED next to an LCD or even LED? Big difference? High Price? What about the Samsung Note 8? I wonder if it will also catch on fire. Even if it does not, I went Samsung over iPhone to give it a chance and came running back. I do not like the OS. My phone was list over $800 and the very next OS update made it so slow I can cook dinner before it gets smooth enough to use after turning it on. They can keep it.

    Almost forgot, I also ditched iPad for Samsung Note 8 Tablet. Within a few months it was dead. Found 1000's of people with the same issue. Black screen and needed a new board. Got another thinking it was a fluke. Now it's acting up like the other just before it died. Never again.
