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

Sharing the experience how the family, which resides at Staten Island is the southernmost of New York City, discovered a loop hole in iPhone X face ID unlock feature, said that their 10-year-old son was checking out one of the two iPhone X, one was of his father and other was of his mother but without knowing which one was of his father's phone and mother's phone.

The family posted a video of the facial-recognition feat Tuesday on YouTube.

Attaullah offered to let Ammar look at his phone instead but the boy picked up his mother's by mistake.

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.

While Face ID, Apple's native facial recognition technology, is one of the key compelling features of the iPhone X, it seems to have some loopholes. That may be true for a random person, but family members obviously have a much higher chance. He also unlocked his dad's phone too.

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.

However, this video is the big evidence that Face ID isn't 100 percent safe and can be fooled by a 10-year-old.

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!

The probability of a false match is different for twins and siblings that look like you as well as among children under the age of 13, because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed.

The frame of the face was created with 3D printing, with the nose being produced by a third-party artist and moulded in silicone.

With Face ID, Apple has launched a grand experiment in a form of biometric security previously untested at this scale. The Mask is being sold at $150!
