New iPhone X “Hack” Shows Face ID Is More Advanced Than Most People Think – Video
Apple itself claims Face ID is substantially more secure than Touch ID, claiming a 1:1,000,000 chance for someone else to be able to access your iPhone X, up from 1:50,000 in the case of the fingerprint sensor.
And yet, videos that reached the web in the last couple of weeks showed the facial recognition system bypassed quite often, mostly by people that share similar characteristics in the way they look.
One such video is now making the headlines, claiming that the iPhone X comes with a bug that allows even people not necessarily looking the same to breach Face ID in a very simple way.
Cult of Mac says the video was made by two third-grade cousins, “meaning that they share at least one set of great-great-grandparents,” so it goes without saying that they’re not really lookalikes, though they themselves admit they “do have similar features.”
