In fact just recently the folks at WIRED have stumbled across the video above which shows a 10-year successfully unlocking the iPhone X belonging to his mom using Face ID.

So if you have enough resemblance with your Family member that has the phone, there is 99% chance that you might hit one.

Reviews of the phone widely noted issues with the feature, which uses infrared light to map users' faces and unlock the phone when the correct owner is looking at it.


In the video, the mother explains that despite setting up Face ID for her face, her son is able to unlock the phone using his face. This put an end to Ammar's Face ID hacks.

Apple needs to address this situation because at the introduction, it says Face ID is more powerful than the Touch ID but the reverse might be the case!

This isn't the first time Face ID has been fooled.


Did you manage to beat iPhone X Face ID?

Where the Screen takes over all the front display, making it edge-to-edge design, there is No Space for the Touch ID, and according to Apple, if it doesn't stay on the Front then NO to the back, there and then we have the Face ID! As their distinct facial features may not have fully developed, so they might unlock your phone easily.

Providing a proof about this lag in iPhone X, in a video shared by the family on YouTube, they said, "We are seeing a flood of videos on YouTube from iPhone users who have gotten their hands on the new iPhone X and are trying to trick the Face ID". But in this case, both the parents are clearly saying that no one ever entered the iPhone X's passcode which means the TrueDepth camera hasn't captured any improvements in regards to Face ID. For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.


In Making, it is crafted through a combination of 3D printing, makeup, and 2D images. But the researchers' team at security firm Bkav allegedly proved that assurance wrong through a mask that cost $150 (approximately Rs. 9,800) to make.
