I must say I agree with Ben on this one. Apple doesn’t always do things first, but when they eventually do implement something, it tends to be the best in it’s class. I remember how long it took for Apple to adopt copy & paste on the iPhone. Or MMS (multimedia messaging, essentially the ability to send images and video by text message.) So if Apple is going to implement something like facial recognition to replace Touch ID (which I doubt, I really see some sort of overlap of the two before / if Apple goes to full facial recognition for things like payments) they will hopefully do it better than the Samsung system that can be fooled by a Facebook profile pic.
