Apple’s security overview emphasized that FaceID was designed with security in mind, and requires the user’s eyes to be open and directed at the camera in order to work. The phone’s facial mapping system, and the neural networks that analyze the maps, have been designed and trained to counter “both digital and physical spoofs.” Furthermore, Apple has stated that it is not storing facial patterns in the cloud.
Apple set forth six scenarios in which Face ID would ask for the passcode instead of unlocking the iPhone: after being turned on or restarted; when it hasn’t been unlocked for more than 48 hours; when the passcode hasn’t been used to unlock in the last 156 hours and Face ID hasn’t been used to unlock in the last four; after a remote lock command; after five failed facial matches; and after someone has initiated power off or the Emergency SOS signal.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
