Uncertainties for iPhone X production over 3-D sensor issues

TAIPEI -- Problems with production of 3-D sensors for facial recognition are still plaguing Apple's premium iPhone X, but it is unclear if this will impact supply of the new phone, scheduled to ship in early November.

Apple introduced facial recognition to unlock phones and to authenticate payments for the first time with the iPhone X. The new function is not available on lower-priced iPhone 8 models.
