1. San Francisco has amended its facial recognition ban in local government to allow iPhones with Face ID, Wired reports. As part of the new amendments, SF city agencies can purchase iPhones and other products with facial recognition, as long as other features in the products are considered "critically necessary" and no alternatives exist. City workers are still barred from actually using Face ID and have to type in passcodes instead. After passing the facial recognition ban in May, San Francisco learned quickly that the city already owned "a lot of facial recognition technology," including the iPhones for city employees, which forced it to amend its law, according to Wired. As other cities follow suit with similar bans, many are including exemptions for personal devices with built-in facial recognition and tagging features. - ENGADGET
