With every iPhone, Apple sets new records. You must be wondering what record did Apple set with iPhone X. Well, iPhone X has helped Apple cross Google’s set level in fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The much talked about Apple’s Face ID feature in iPhone X let’s one experience AI on the phone itself. I’ll explain the mechanism of Face ID in simple words. TrueDepth camera helps to make a face map of the user and the AI can help in identifying and unlocking the phone.
Google’s Tango AR is already out there in the market. Infact, they have also asked hardware brands like Lenovo to make AR smartphones.

Google has been trying to minimize this usage gap. They launched ARCore in August. Unfortunately, it worked only with devices running on Android 7 and above. We know that the smartphone vendors delay the updates and very less phone run on the required platform.
Samsung is trying to keep holding onto it’s premium device users by ordering integration AI chips for it’s upcoming devices. Samsung sources have said that in the next 3 years or so, smartphones will have designated chips that will improve the processing of AI features by 50% from today.
