Following recent reports from Bloomberg company, Apple is alternating its used routine concerning the production of the Face ID sensor to ensure the promised target of the iPhone X is met irrespective of the fact that the set quality and standard fixed has dropped all in other that the suppliers can produce the required sensors much faster.
Quoting Ming-Chi Kuo a securities analyst with KGI who expressed an opinion in a report a few days back, he said Apple won’t be able to produce enough iPhone X units for first weekend sales alone. Apple should have around 2 to 3 million units on launch day. The company could suffer from chronicle shortages over multiple months.
As a result of the cutting edge technological components required for the specification of the iPhone X production to meet tens of millions has proven to be difficult. These components include the dot projector in the Face ID sensor which is used to project a network of infrared dots to create a 3D map of your face based on the reflection of those dots, in other words it is basically like a kinect in a phone.
Let it be known that Apple is of the routine that strict rules should be followed concerning quality insurance and that components that do not match up to right and required specifications cannot be used in a device, also noting that suppliers must thoroughly subject to test all parts. Yet Apple might have put too much aggression to the release plan of the iPhone X especially since component producing factories could make do with more time to enhance and improve their production facilities to make a ramped up production.
So now Apple is making do with less testing of completed modules which means in other words that some modules will pass the set test as good while some will come out not as accurate as planned but the production process will be faster. Statistically speaking the chance some one else can unlock an iPhone with a touch ID sensor is one in fifty thousand so by making a switch to face recognition, Apple claimed it would be more secure because with the face ID sensor the chances of another person unlocking phone drastically dropped to one in one million but it is still unclear if this new change affects this number.
