  iPhone Upgrade Program customers can now trade in phones through the mail Apple seems to be making it easier to trade in iPhones through the iPhone Upgrade Program with a new mail-in kit option, as spotted by John Angarano over at the MacRumors forums. Apple launched the iPhone Upgrade Program two years ago alongside the iPhone 6S as an alternative for customers looking to upgrade their phone without being tied to any one carrier. But if you were looking to upgrade your phone to a new model, you had to schedule an appointment in an Apple Store to trade in the old phone, something that seems to finally be changing with the new mail-in kit.

The Face ID feature will work in low light situations and, according to Apple, there’s only a one in a million chance another face (unless you have an evil twin) can unlock your device.

Every time you look at your iPhone X it detects your face. The feature will allow users to unlock devices simply by looking at them, essentially letting iPhone owners to use their face as a password.

The device features a built-in neural engine to process users’ faces. This allows the iPhone X to learn your face and increase security.

The Face ID feature will work with Apple Pay and has 3rd party support as well.

To use Face ID you just raise your phone, look at it, and swipe up. The feature worked almost instantaneously during the Apple demonstration.

The iPhone X may be very difficult to buy until 2018 .
If you’re eager to put down $1,000 or more for Apple’s new bezel-less, OLED-equipped iPhone X, you’ll probably want to be awake and ready at the company’s preorder page come October 27th. “We believe the fullscreen design and facial recognition features will drive replacement demand for the iPhone X,” Kuo explains. But “due to supply constraints,” he adds, it’s unlikely demand will match supply until 2018. Kuo says he anticipates Apple will ship around 40 million iPhone X units before the end of the fiscal year, and as many as 90 million in 2018.
