You can also use Raise to Wake, then swipe up from the bottom of the display to unlock the iPhone or return to the Home screen. Swipe up and pause to enter multitasking.Siri is invoked with Hey Siri or the new larger side button. Touch ID is replaced with a new Face ID facial recognition feature. Face ID relies on the new True Depth camera system. This feature works even in the dark to unlock your iPhone.iPhone X features the new A11 Bionic chip with a special neural engine that helps power Face ID. Apple says Face ID can’t be spoofed by photographs, masks, and makeup, and changing your actual appearance with a hat or beard or makeup won’t prevent Face ID from working. Apple says all the processing is completed locally and securely, and the feature only works when you’re eyes are open and you’re paying attention and not looking away.Today Apple also showcased its new ‘AirPower’ accessory that allows users to charge all of their Apple products on a single mat…AirPower supports the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X, as well as the Apple Watch Series 3 and AirPods. In order to charge AirPods, however, users will need the new AirPods charging case that enables the charging technology.Apple only briefly offered a sneak peek at AirPower and didn’t offer pricing or specific availability information. Phil Schiller simply teased that AirPower will be available sometime in 2018.
