Android Q: Google is working on 3D face recognition à la Face ID

With Android Q, Google will bring a new biometric authentication method à la Face ID into its mobile OS, which Apple has had on board since its iPhone X. Paying with Google Pay with your face should be possible soon. So far, face recognition under Android on most Android smartphones is nothing more than a convenience feature that is not particularly secure. Many manufacturers only use the front camera for this function - only a few devices such as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro (test) and the Explorer Edition of the Xiaomi Mi 8 have additional sensors that are reminiscent of Apple's Face ID.

Trade war: Apple supplier Foxconn turns away from China

Apple supplier Foxconn is expanding its activities in India and Vietnam. The background is probably the trade war between the USA and China. Apple should not have anything to do with it. Last week it became known that Apple supplier Foxconn had laid off around 50,000 employees since October last year. The reason for this was apparently the currently weak iPhone demand, which is also depressing the sales of the world's largest contract manufacturer. Now Foxconn also seems to have hit the US-China trade war. The Taiwanese group recently continued reading on

Apple’s Swift 5 language update will make many apps smaller on iOS 12.2

The most significant change to Apple’s developer ecosystem this decade has been the introduction of the Swift programming language - and we’ll probably see the next big change come during this year’s WWDC with the introduction of third party UIKit apps on the Mac. As for Swift, the new language was announced at WWDC 2014. With contributions from both Apple engineers and the open-source community, it has seen constant updates and is now in version 4.2.1. An important aspect of Swift that has been affecting users since its first version is that its application binary interface, or ABI, is not stable. What that means in practice is that Apple can't include the Swift language support in its operating systems, because an app written with Swift 3 won't work with the language support binaries for Swift 4. The solution to that is to include the Swift language libraries inside the app bundle that gets downloaded from the App Store, increasing the bandwidth and storage required

However, not all users tolerate the increased image repetition equally well, so that it can cause headaches with prolonged use. But this can be prevented
