iPhone X owners who are facing problem with the FaceID unlock scanner may get a new device if their smartphone cannot be repaired, a report has claimed.

According to a report in MacRumors, the Cupertino-based company “updated its service policy for a limited number of iPhone X units that might be experiencing issues with Face ID”.

The policy said that the support personnel must first try to fix the rear camera if Face ID problems are present. If the issue is not resolved, Apple would replace the whole unit instead of repairing the same device.

“In order to provide the best customer experience, if a customer reports that their iPhone X is having Face ID issues, you may be able to resolve the issue with a rear camera repair,” MacRumors quoted Apple as saying.

“Run AST 2 on the customer’s device to check the camera. If the diagnostics find issue with the camera, perform the repair to see if the issue is resolved. If the issue is not resolved, perform a whole unit replacement instead of a same-unit display repair,” the company has said.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the tech giant admitted the problem that reportedly lies in the rear camera of the device.

The report mentioned that the TrueDepth camera at the front and the telephoto lens at the back are linked.

iPhone X sports a unique “FaceID” facial recognition system to unlock the device. The feature is enabled by a ‘True Depth’ camera system in the A11 neural engine.

It is basically a 3D face scanner that uses several components to analyse a person’s face and verify identity. It is also expensive to fix. (IANS)

Apple has paid $1.77 billion of total $15 billion to the Irish government as it begins to collect tax and interest into an escrow account set up to hold the sum.

“This is the first of a series of payments with the expectation that the remaining tranches will flow into the fund during the second and third quarter of 2018 as previously outlined,” the Irirsh Times quoted Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe as saying after the first transfer.

In August 2016, the European Commission said that Apple benefited from illegal tax benefits in Ireland from 2003 to 2014.

Meanwhile, Apple and Ireland are still pursuing appeals against a 2016 European Commission’s decision saying the iPhone maker’s tax treatment was in line with Irish and European Union law.

In 2016, the EU ordered the iPhone maker to pay almost $15 billion in back taxes to Ireland as it believed Ireland had not been collecting enough taxes and instead had been giving companies like Apple too big of a break on its already low 12.5 per cent tax rate.

Apple has reportedly moved its cash to the small island of Jersey off the south coast of England to avoid further Irish taxation, CNET said in a report.

The Irish government expects that all of the money would be transferred by the end of September. (IANS)
