New Apple ad says Face ID is safer than Touch ID


Face ID is almost too easy to use.

Apple tossed some shade at its own product in a new ad that promotes Face ID.

The hilarious new ad shows how much easier it is to use Face ID over Touch ID as a vegged-out guy relaxes in his reclining chair and is too lazy to touch his iPhone XR to see who’s texting him.

Prepare to laugh:

Face ID is the future

Apple introduced Face ID in 2017 with the iPhone X as a complete replacement for Touch ID. Rumors previously indicated that Apple wanted to embed Touch ID into the display of iPhones but the company went all in on facial recognition instead. Apple subsequently added Face ID to the iPad Pro as well.

With iOS 13, Apple improved Face ID’s unlocking speed. The software will release to the public this fall.
