New Renders Envision 2018 iPad Pro with Face ID

Mask fools iPhone X's Face ID

Mask fools iPhone X's Face ID

Apple has just consolidated their iPad lines earlier this March, and reports already coming in about plans to bring the tablet's features on par with the iPhone X. The new, high-end and likely to be very expensive iPad could be coming next year with facial recognition technology, according to sources.

Soon after the launch of the iPhone X with Face ID, there were many speculations suggesting that Apple will implement the same technology in the upcoming iPhones slated to be launched next year.

The mask uses a hand-crafted "skin" made specifically to fool Face ID, while 3D printing produced the face model.

"Nose was made by a handmade artist".

"The latest to fall is the claim that Face ID can not be spoofed by masks, with Apple's Phil Schiller saying the company ".worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID.

"Many people in the world have tried different kinds of masks but all failed. We were able to trick Apple's AI, as mentioned in the writing, because we understood how their AI worked and how to bypass it".

Bkav, a Vietnamese cybersecurity firm, claims to have cracked the face recognition technology of iPhone X with the help of a mask which costs around $150. Wired itself had also found that Face ID's sensors only check a portion of a user's features.

At least one new iPad model with a screen size similar to the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is planned to include Face ID for unlocking the device, making payments, and sending animated emojis.

We've reached out to Bkav for more information, and will update this post if we hear back.

Bkav said that the experiment is a proof of concept and it claimed that in order to bypass the security measure even half of the face is enough to crack into the system.

As for biometric security, fingerprint is the best, said the firm which discovered the first critical flaw in Google Chrome just days after its launch in 2008.

According to the firm, if exploited, Face ID can create problems.
