If Apple's answers are anything like the answers it gave in its response to the 2013 letter, the gist will be that because the faceprint is stored in the Secure Enclave and therefore is inaccessible to Apple, its services or its partners, many of these questions will be moot.
Face ID will also work with Apple Pay, as well as third party apps.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus preorders on the other hand become available tonight.
iPhone 8 64GB costs Rs 64,000 while the 256GB variant will be available for Rs 77,000. The iPhone X price in India is set at Rs 89,000 for the models with 64GB of internal storage. The iPhone 8 has 2GB of RAM, matching that of the iPhone 7 that it replaces.
There's a Retina HD (1334x750) screen with True Tone display at the forefront of the smartphones, measuring in at 4.7in and 5.1in, respectively, and you'll find a Home button sitting underneath and new stereo speakers at the top and button of the handset. Didn't Andy Rubin, the founder of Android, launch an equally handsome Essential smartphone?
New software iOS 11 rolls out across all three devices, alongside new male and female voices for voice recognition technology Siri, as well as the ability to translate phrases spoken to Siri into Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. According to a report from Yahoo's David Pogue, an Apple representative chalked the miscue up to staffers who had touched the device prior to the demo.
"The iPhone X is a super-premium device from Apple". But this time Apple has put a glass backed design in its new phones, most probably keeping wireless charging in mind.
However, the demonstration of its facial recognition feature, named Face ID, went awry. The smartphone has a base price tag of $999. But the feature failed, bumping Federighi to an old-fashioned passcode entry screen and forcing him to switch to a backup phone.
So, has Apple shifted consumer spending patterns? The watch now supports LTE connectivity. The device prompted Federighi to use a passcode instead, leading him to switch to a backup unit, which worked properly.
Meanwhile, when it comes to Apple iPhone 6S, there is a so called Rs 20,000 exchange offer on that too. And, of course, both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus support 3D Touch, a feature that debuted in late 2015 with the launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
But, as I said, the displays on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were already great.
After months of speculation, on September 12, Apple finally unveiled the much anticipated #iPhone X. Check back for a full review of the new products in the near future.
