Reports are coming out, that the upcoming Apple iPhone 8, will be able to detect and recognise your face, from an angle. Which means, when your phone is flat and away from you on a desk, it will recognise you from an angle. Perhaps this has more to do with Apple apparent research into face ID, rather than using touch ID. The face recognition from an angle makes even more sense, given that touch ID has been given the boot, in favour of face ID, and when making an Apple Pay purchase, the phone will most certainly be at an angle to your face when you are at the POS terminal. We will of course know a great deal more when the phone is released in September/October of this year. Apple have yet to announce any Keynote but these tend to arrive in September.
