Hoo boy. He should try reading the comments on his own blog. He'll be so busy keeping on his toes that he just may evolve more toes to keep up the pace.

>When I explained that the animation was pointing to the physical side button, the proverbial light bulb went off.

On. The proverbial light bulb came ON!

Lol wow this is something. No comments on his own blog but he likes reading comments about his blog.

Anyway, how about adding the words "side button" to the UI. Seems too easy.

"totally tactile"?

How is FaceID totally tactile? It's only partially tactile, which is to say when it doesn't work and you have to enter your passcode like a dweeb.
