The stainless steel band that wraps around and reinforces i Phone X is a special Apple-designed alloy that’s both durable and more pure, and it polishes beautifully. That was the insight behind Face ID, a powerful and secure authentication system that’s even more convenient than Touch ID.For the space gray finish, we use a process called physical vapor deposition to precisely match the color of the stainless steel band to that of the glass.
