Special Snapchat lenses for iPhone X finally released

SnapChat is Releasing Special AR Lenses for iPhone X Users

But the new, exclusive face filters for the iPhone X are using the device's TrueDepth camera system which means users will get an increased level of accuracy.

Snapchat first previewed its specialized iPhone X Lenses at Apple's iPhone event in September, where Apple SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi provided a short onstage demonstration showing off the feature's ability to track facial movements. Traditionally, AR overlays such as those Snapchat has made popular - like the doggy face or floating sunglasses - use basic facial feature tracking to figure out where they should appear.

It's worth remembering that, though the TrueDepth camera is used in both this case and for Face ID, there are different layers of security at work.

However, in future, the giant will add a bunch of new masks which the users of iPhone X can explore through the Snapchat application.

Looking at Snapchat's photos and videos of this new feature, one can easily notice these lenses are tightly sticking to your face, especially around the jawline.

The new Lenses are created to reflect surrounding light in a more realistic manner and add a touch of blur to the background, Snap said. The self-destructing messaging app has even tried to monetize its lenses to boost revenue from the advertisers. Earlier this year, Reuters reported that the iPhone maker has plans to share facial mapping data.

There was news that Apple might be sharing facial mapping data to develop these lenses further. However, no one, not even Apple's employees have access to the mathematical data obtained by the camera.

In the developer agreement, Apple has clearly mentioned that the data fetched can not be used for advertising and marketing purposes, keeping the security issues in mind.

Furthermore, Apple has banned developers from making profiles of generally unknown clients by utilizing recognizing facial catch data.

However, as the adoption of TrueDepth and Face ID grows, it would become hard for the iPhone maker to keep a check on the unfair use of data. Now, those speculations have been put to rest by Apple executives themselves.
