With the launch of the iPhone XS and XR last year, Apple has gone all-in on Face ID. And while there may be some users who lack the fingerprint sensor, I'm not one of them.
The latest group of new iPhones that came out in September 2018 was the first to not include the Touch ID at all. Having owned my first Touch ID smaller iPhone for months now, I can't say I'm upset by this move from Apple.
Face ID is so much more comfortable
 Touch ID is already quite comfortable way more convenient than entering a password every time – but Face ID takes it to a whole new level. It's like Touch ID, but you don't even have to scan your fingerprint.
Both technologies still require some action on your part to unlock the phone and get to the home screen, but with Face ID it is just a sweep up from the bottom. With the help of Touch ID, make sure to place your finger on a specific location in the phone and then wait to unlock it.
In other words, you do not even have to worry about unlocking your phone with the Face ID. Instead, it just happens, and that's the kind of convenience I'm looking for.
It's more accurate than a nickname ever was
Have used Face ID for a while now I can say that the number of times it doesn't recognize my face has been a lot less than the number of times the Touch ID has not recognized my fingerprint.
I honestly can't even remember a time when I looked straight into the face ID, and it flat out said it didn't recognize me – it's good. On the other hand, I can remember many times when Touch ID would work fine and not recognize my finger at all.
Maybe my fingers were a little wet or something, but the Touch ID has too many variables that must be right for it to work perfectly, while Face ID works with minimal requirements.
Facial ID has its flaws, but they are trivial
Of course, Face ID is not perfect. One of its biggest flaws is that you have to stare straight at it to recognize your face and unlock your phone, which doesn't sound like a big deal, but you understand it immediately when you start interacting with your phone on a daily basis .
One thing I do a lot is to put my phone on my desk and then tap the screen to wake it up to see if I have any messages that I may have missed. If I do, I want to unlock my phone to interact with these messages. But if I sit back in my chair, the Face ID camera can't recognize me. I have to either pick up my phone or lean forward to appear in the camera's point of view.
This is pretty trivial, and it's not a big enough reason to bash Face ID, because every other time I use it completely does
I've become so used to Face ID that it feels like incredibly primitive to go back to Touch ID (I still have my old iPhone 6 that I sometimes use).  At this point, it doesn't even feel like Face ID, and Touch ID is in the same league. That's not to say that the Touch ID is horrible, but that's one of the things that when you experience Face ID, you'll never want to go back.
