iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

Apple then released a 8.0.1 update, which caused even more problemsthat carried TouchID cellular connectivity is turned off for some users.

Apple said fewer than 40,000 users have been affected by these problems, but the company still took the update within 60 minutes of release and users who had already installed to reinstall iOS 8.0 advised.

Apple Pulls iOS 8 Software Update After iPhone Problems

Updated add instructions to remove iOS 8.0.1.

A software update Apple on Wednesday sent did the opposite of what the company intends, off cell phone service in countless iPhones, among other problems.

Twitter and tech news sites quickly overflowed with reports of people who encountered problems after downloading and installing the update, iOS 8.0.1, which was intended to fix several bugs in the operating system for Apple mobile devices. Apple responded by removing the update.

This is not the first time an Apple software update has caused, rather than fixed, device problems. But it seems to be one of the first times that the company has pulled the update. "We are actively investigating these reports and provide information as quickly as we can," Apple said in a statement. "Meanwhile, we have removed the update iOS 8.0.1."
