IPhone X's Face ID fooled effortlessly by a 10 year old

Researchers 'break through' iPhone X's hi-tech Face ID security

IN WHAT might seem like a neverending list of bad news for the iPhone X, a 10-year-old in the USA appears to have been able to access his mum's phone due to a Face ID mismatch. The 41-second-long video shows that the kid was easily able to unlock the iPhone X of Sherwani - there is some visible family resemblance, but some rather distinct facial features as well. However, she made a decision to further test things by registering all over again under indoor night-time lighting, similar to the first time. However, Malik claims this wasn't the case with his wife and son, and no-one entered the passcode after Face ID rejected a scan, Wired reports.

The "lesson" parents should perhaps take away from this is to register Face ID in a bright room to minimise the chances of this becoming an issue. We were sitting down in our bedroom and were just done setting up the Face IDs, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X. Right away my wife declared that he was not going to access her phone. He points the iPhone X at the camera to show that it's locked and then again, after staring at the screen, to prove it's been unlocked. Unlike Touch ID where you can register multiple fingerprints, Face ID is only programmable with one face per device.

We've reached out to Apple for comment and will update with a response.

NCP state president T P Peethambaran Master, however, did not disclose to the media the decisions arrived at the executive. In two sessions, on either side of the lunch break, the judges made a number of damning observations about the minister.


This isn't the first time Face ID has been fooled. A lot of Identical Twin's once did it, it worked for some and Not for others. Testing it on his father's iPhone X saw him only get in once and failed subsequent times, with the father penning an article on LinkedIn with regards to the situation.

It's reported that Ammar also managed to fool his dad's iPhone X Face ID system too, but only on a single occasion.

"These are actual masks used by the engineering team to train the neutral network to protect against them in Face ID", said Schiller while standing below an image of the masks. The mask in the video is intricately put together, with a silicone nose, specially crafted "skin", and 3D-printed parts.
