2. FaceID – Your High-Tech Passport

Does your iPhone unlock just by looking at it? That’s the magic of FaceID, another AI-based technology. It uses a detailed map of your face to verify your identity and unlock the phone, ensuring a secure and seamless experience.

3. Camera – The Artist in Your Pocket

Love taking photos? Your iPhone’s camera uses AI to make them look even better. Your iPhone’s camera uses AI to make your photos look fantastic. It automatically adjusts the focus and lighting, recognizes faces, and can even identify objects.

Your iPhone’s AI can even categorize and group photos you’ve already taken, using facial-recognition and object-detection AI technology!

4. Keyboard – The Texting Whiz
