Does anybody know yet if Face ID paired to the logic board?

Does anybody know yet if the Face ID sensor (basically the whole front camera assembly) is paired to the logic board? Wondering how that will affect repairs in the future, since the front camera does need to be replaced occasionally.

We already know Touch ID can never be repaired with 3rd party parts, and the iPhone 7 and 8 can't have the "button" replaced at all. I will not be surprised if the front camera doesn't work at all if replaced.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

So, the front camera will work, but with no Face ID.

For Face ID to work, it needs both original flexes (or some soldering) then?

Tried this myself with a few X's, the front camera basically is your Face ID. When repairing or changing screens make sure to swap out the front camera sensor also or it wont work.

Sorry, misread the question. I'll order a new front camera and see if that works. This is interesting..
