In this story we are discussing about Identical twins appear to successfully fool Face ID on the iPhone XS and XS Max. This begins with when Apple debuted Face ID with the release of iPhone X last year, it claimed it was more secure than Touch ID. However, this might be true, but the biggest issues with Face ID are that it is slower than Touch ID and despite being more secure, it could be easily bypassed by one’s identical twin brother or sister.
In 2018 iPhone XS series, Apple has only made claims of Face ID being faster than ever and said, it is still more secure than Touch ID. But as tests conducted by twin brothers running the LifeofTwinz YouTube channel show, Face ID on the iPhone XS still unlocks if one identical brother registers their face and another tries to unlock the phone.
In fact, Face ID has also been fooled while one identical twin tried opening the iPhone XS Max with a beard. So, in this case we have made little to no impact as Face ID still unlocked the device. And coming to the conclusion that the identical twins wore a hat and then tried to open the same XS Max in the third test, too. They were able to do the same successfully.
To Apple and Face ID’s credit though, the Cupertino-based company said last year that identical twins might be able to bypass Face ID. Plus, the identical twins in this video proves it, and do look identical so Face ID getting confused between them should be forgiven.
How was your experience with Face ID on iPhone XS or XS Max? What are the areas you think Apple can further improve?
