    Ah! I didn't realise you could 'turn off' the facial recognition and just use the numbers pass code!
    It's actually the other way round, in that you have to turn it on, although it will encourage you to do so. It's the same as Touch ID (fingerprints) in that regard.

      Having had every iphone since the 3GS on launch up until now, This is the most underwhelmed I've ever been about a launch. THe 8 offers me pretty much nothing over my 7 plus. The X offers not a great deal more but for a stupid price tag. I think I am going to stick with the 7 plus for this year and if they fail to wow me next year I am going to start investigating the dark side that is Android.

      This facial recognition thing then. Could you hold up a picture of yourself to the screen and unlock it ?

      What if you accidentally shave an eyebrow off, will that render your phone unlockable ? What if you're one of those wallies who goes to football with facepaint on, will that scupper your access as well ?

      Just use the code, like now if you have a wet or sticky finger!

      No it works by building a 3d model of your features by firing 30,000 IR dots at you.

      Obvious caveat, WTF do I know, but this is more expensive that a Macbook Air, or any of the iPad range. I am struggling to understand the pricing. Yes I know a Macbook Air doesn't take photos or make telephone calls, but how about this - you could (quite literally) buy an iPhone 7 AND an iPad for the same money (or a little less). Common-sense indicates Apple have this wrong, but as I said - I am no expert.

      Bloody hell. So you'd find out how Maty Ryan felt against Man City.

      This, the 6 is a great phone. Had mine for 2 and a half years, it's still great.

      This isn't just Apple though, is it?

      The new Samsung flagship phones are only slightly cheaper (and you'll more than make that back with an iPhone when it comes to resale).

      New high-spec phones cost a lot of money.
