The new details come a month before Apple's most advanced iPhone, the iPhone X, goes on sale in November. The banner feature of the iPhone X is facial recognition called "Face ID" that replaces the old fingerprint sensor.

Since Face ID and its corresponding 3D camera called "TrueDepth" were announced in September, the technology has attracted a lot of attention and speculation from privacy advocates and security experts. Sen. Al Franken even wrote an open letter to Tim Cook with 10 questions about the technology.

The new disclosures published on Wednesday answer several remaining questions about Face ID. They include a Face ID security overview paper, an Apple Support page on the technology, and a redesigned privacy page that declares that Apple management believes "privacy is a fundamental human right."
"So much of your personal information ... lives on your Apple devices," Apple wrote on the new page. "Your heart rate after a run. Which news stories you read first. Where you bought your last coffee. What websites your visit. Who you call, email, or message."

Compared to the company's secrecy on upcoming products and internal procedures, Apple likes to publicize much of how its security and encryption systems work. Apple CEO Tim Cookwrote an open letter about security in 2014, and publicly fought the FBI in court in 2016 over whether to help it break into an encrypted iPhone used by a terrorist.
"A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realize that when an online service is free, you’re not the customer," said Cook in 2014. "You’re the product. But at Apple, we believe a great customer experience shouldn’t come at the expense of your privacy."
