okay okay all right let's talk about Beauty gate and charge gates and what's actually happening get dealy Technos in a way that doesn't suck hit that subscribe button and turn on notifications so you don't miss the next episode yo what's going on guys welcome back to front page tech and for show that gives you all the latest tech news from one key that is read to another that is you happy Monday hopefully you had a great weekend if you missed it we posted a video yesterday called the YouTube tech community is a dumpster fire my thoughts

On the tech community if you missed it I'll link it down in the description below today you're gonna watch me actively pour gasoline on that dumpster fire let's talk about the news okey doke so story numero uno is about the iPhone 10 are if you've been watching this show for a good amount of time then you know that literally for months now I have been trying to say that the iPhone 10 R is going to outsell every other iPhone model this year whether that's like two models three models for models eighteen models I don't care I've been saying that the LCD version of this phone will

Outsell the others I've had Twitter debates I've been on live stream screaming of people trying to explain why I was right about this but lately instead of trying to hammer into people's heads that the Apple consumer is the average consumer I just decided to wait I'll wait and I'll be proven right eventually and it has begun children because according to analysts Apple is actually ramping up production for the iPhone 10 ah it sure seems that Apple themselves is predicting and planning that the iPhone 10 are will make up over 50% of the new iPhones so

Wow something like the iPhone 10's max is expected to be around four to five million units per month that is only going to account for about 20% of Apple's overall production whereas the iPhone 10 production is ramping up to twenty billion units for October now if you missed it a few months ago like before we had a name for this phone or anything I gave multiple reasons as to why I strongly believe that this phone would outsell the others this was even before we knew exactly what the phone was gonna look like and that video is even more fun to

Watch now now that we know what the phones are what they look like I'll link it down in the description below and listen I know that you guys hated so much when I come on here and tell you I told you so so I'm not gonna do that I am going to resist it oh I won't I want to say episode we talked about Facebook being hacked a lot like 50 million user accounts were directly affected by this hack and now it seems Facebook might have to face the books what bad bad John that's right now Facebook is looking directly at a class-action lawsuit over this hat the

Class action complaint itself was filed on behalf of one resident from California and another resident from Virginia both are claiming that Facebook's lack of proper security exposed them and additional potential class members to significantly increase chances of identity theft which is thought far off considering Facebook themselves literally doesn't know who the hacker or hackers work or how bad it was Jesus could you imagine being mark Freiberg like that guy has had such a tough year and this is just another thing to pile on I would just be like

Hey I'm just gonna lay in this hole and die okay all right let's talk about beauty gates and charge gate both things that were brought to the world's attention by Lou from unbox therapy first Beauty gate so if you missed Lou's from last week he basically showed that his iPhone 10's max had an issue and the issue was when Lou went to take a selfie with the iPhone 10's max it started smoothing out his skin kind of what we are already used to in existing phones having a feature called beauty mode and those sort of features basically like

Diffuse the skin make it appear softer smoother which is why that's called beauty mode and blue tried to demonstrate that it only happens if it sees your face therefore it has to be Beauty mode and of course Lou ran off with that articles ran off with that the internet ran off with the fact that they believed that Apple had snuck in Beauty mode by default a feature that you could not turn off to try to make people believe that they were taking better selfies than they actually were and it seems like Marquez put out a video today it seemed that it was very unlike Apple

To do this a feature like this would be very unlike Apple that is because it is unlike Apple I explained in Friday's episode of what we are looking at is not beauty mode it's just bad image processing but for whatever reason people still went down in the comments section because if it's me against Lou I get it a lot of you are gonna choose Lou's side and that's cool that's fine I like Lou too but he's just wrong a lot of you just called me a sheep and an Apple apologist because I was trying to make excuse I'm not trying to make excuses this is still an issue it's just

Not the issue you think it is this article does a really good job at explaining what's going on this isn't beauty mode this isn't a feature that Apple tried to sneakily put in the phone that's not what this is it's just bad image processing it is super super aggressive noise reduction happening so it can happen in low-light photos but it can also happen in overexposed photos which is why when Lou tried to take selfies even in his perfectly lit studio it wasn't a low light issue it was a shutter issue was an overexposed image issue he's covered

And surrounded by professional studio lighting and since the new set of cameras on iPhone 10s and 10's max are like trying to merge different exposures different versions of the image that have different exposures you're getting those merged images in image processing and it's just making it look bad it's smoothing things out too much it's not just faces it's not just skin it's bad image processing over the whole friend thing so again let me remind you and let me be clear I'm not an Apple apologist I'm not apologizing for this

Or making excuses for this this is still bad it is still an issue it is bad image processing all the way around in these new phones and it can be fixed what the software fix and it probably will be fixed in the next version of iOS this just isn't the big scandal that Lou is looking for this isn't them purposely putting a beauty mode in the device and now let's talk about charge gate another video that Lou put out was demonstrating that the iPhone 10s and 10's Macs have charging issues where you go to plug in the lightning cable and sometimes if the phone was sitting idle for a second it

Just doesn't recognize the cable like no communication between the cable and the device just zero some of these funds would not charge unless you like woke the device back up sometimes that would activate to charge and then you showed that some devices just didn't work period and of course this has been all over the internet right some people cannot replicate it at all and then some people do sort of see the issue here and there once again yes this is an issue but this is actually directly related and caused by a feature within iOS as you know there has been drama between

The FBI and Apple law enforcement very often wants to get into the phones of active suspects whether they're in custody or whether the suspect is dead and they're trying to get inside of this person's phone after the fact multiple times Apple has said no we're not going to help you get into the phone Apple just did not want to give law enforcement the FBI anybody a backdoor into iOS for the sake of privacy because if they do it for certain suspects then they got to do it for everybody now Apple just didn't want to do that so law enforcement started using something

Called gray keys they are made specifically for this a massive box that you can plug into the phone via the lightning port and it will brute-force itself into the phone so will hack the phone allow law enforcement into the phone through complete brute force so Apple as a direct answer to something like that they tried to introduce a new feature where effectively what will happen is if the phone has been put into some sort of idle mode if it hasn't been touched for let's say 60 minutes it will not allow communication between the lightning cord and the device so it's

Meant to stop exactly this because the only way to stop these gray key things from communicating with the device and you plug it in and brute forces its way through the only way to stop that is for it just to cut all communication between lightning and the device itself but what we're seeing here in Lou's video and the reason a lot of people aren't able to replicate this issue is because it's that feature acting up there's a bug in that feature so what's happening is the features just completely Frankie sometimes it doesn't take just 60 minutes to activate the feature

Sometimes it takes as much as 30 seconds which you can see in this tweet that Lou sent to mkbhd you have to let the phone sit idle that's the word for 30 seconds so there is a bug in this feature it's still a problem it's still a bug it is not a scandal in fact in the latest release of iOS 12.1 which i believe is in beta right now that issue is uh it's fixed that beta was out when Lou made this video so again it's fixed it's not a scandal again I know you guys gonna head down the comments section and call me names and call me an apple apologist and a sheep and all that stuff I'm just

Trying to remain fair these are issues they just aren't as big as I think some people want them to be and I love Lou like I really respect Lou as a person I love his style of video I am a subscriber a viewer i watch every single video that guy puts out I just think as viewers we need to be a little bit more honest with ourselves here and try to identify agendas as they are happening are we seeing major scandals with the iPhone or are we seeing somebody try to get their next most popular viral video so as a viewer Lou

I just hope to see less of that and that is the show hopefully like to you learn something if you did hit that like button if you hate my stupid face then that dislike button is for you if you're new here subscribe and I'll see you guys tomorrow
