Don't take the naysayers words to heart. I was super sceptical at first but I love FaceID and would never choose to go back to finger prints.Picking up my 12 today coming from my fairly haggard 7plus that I’ve held on to for dear life! I will miss the Touch ID but looking forward to a slight camera upgrade and a battery that lasts longer than 5 minutes will be a bonus also.
Seems a hard way to pick up the phone?I always found with Touch ID that I would pick the phone up with my thumb on the sensor so by the time it was facing me, it was already unlocked, so faster than Face ID will ever be.
Apple got rid of it so they could lose the button which I understand, but with through-screen readers available now it makes Face ID a little redundant. If it wasn't Apple they'd probably admit defeat and the next phone would be touch, but Apple doesn't like admitting they were wrong.
I think the iPhone 12 was too far along to implement Touch ID anyway, but we'll see what happens with the iPhone 13.
My rear fingerprint sensor Pixel 4A is unlocked even before I've started removing it from my pocket. Just sayin'.I mean you still grip it by either side, but naturally your thumb falls on the screen somewhere, and for me I just let it fall on the sensor.
I've had both, my XR has had it for ages. I still prefer my phone being unlocked on its way out of my pocket with my thumb over taking it out of my pocket and then having to wait half a second staring at it for it to unlock. Agree with the best option being to have both.
The only time I've preferred Face ID is when a notification's popped up on my phone when it's sat on the side somewhere and I just have to look at my phone to read it handsfree, but that only works sometimes (half the time you have to swipe up to unlock which defeats the entire point), and the only reason I can't just look at the notifications anyway is because with Face ID they're hidden when your phone is locked.
ifixit did a teardown recently, the 12 and 12 Pro share the same battery which has shrunk about 10% from the iphone 11 and 11 pro to accommodate the 5G chips.Picking up my 12 today coming from my fairly haggard 7plus that I’ve held on to for dear life!

I’ve had face ID for 3 years now and I’d still prefer touch ID.Seems a hard way to pick up the phone?
I obvs have had both and find Face ID a definite improvement.
I wonder how many people that have had Face ID for a while still prefer Touch ID?
Or is it the thing humans do with change “ooo I don’t like that, the old way was better” etc etc
As said though clearly having both options is the way to go when possible.
iPhone 11May aswell ask here. The 11 I have seems to take a while to charge. Been reading it comes with a 5w charger that you need to upgrade to the 18w and cable.
Anyone got a spare they don’t use by chance
