10-Year Old Successfully Unlocks His Mom's iPhone X Using Face ID

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.

This is what a new video shows that features Sana Sherwani and her kid Ammar Malik. As can be seen in the video below, Ammar can reliably unlock his mother's iPhone X, so it wasn't just a one-off fluke.

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.

After the mother reregistered her face under different lighting, her son was no longer able to unlock her phone.

Paul Pogba's injury lay-off has been cited as a reason for the Red Devils' dip in form, with his absence having a knock-on effect on other players.

Now as you can see in the video, both mom and son do share some similarities in their facial features, and not only was the kid successful on the first try, but he managed to get in multiple times afterwards. Some security researchers have already claimed to have fooled Face ID with 3D-printed masks. The son was also able to unlock his father's phone, but only in one instance. Reports says that the boy was able to unlock the phone because he picked up the phone for the first time. Now it looks like there's another easy scenario and parents might want to take note before getting an iPhone X.

Some of the important Changes or updates actually started on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus among-st other updates, the most popular and in particular, the change from Touch ID to Face ID arrived on the iPhone X! As the iPhone X doesn't even support fingerprint scanner so the only option remains in critical cases for you is to use your good old passcode. For additional protection, Face ID allows only five unsuccessful match attempts before a passcode is required to obtain access to your iPhone.

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

"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.
