Phil Schiller, Apple's vice president of marketing, introduced iPhone X's Face ID functionality during the presentation conference of the company's new smartphones.
Users, and even more consumers who plan to buy the iPhone X, are somewhat concerned about this feature. And it is that Face ID will replace Touch ID and will be the main method to unlock the terminal. In addition, in his presentation had a small failure.
And now, concern will increase. Since Apple have ensured that the Face ID system could have problems with children under 13 and with twins.
The Face ID feature of the iPhone X is not as accurate as it counts
Apple's bite company recently issued a safety guide on Face ID. In it, we talked long and hard about the function of iPhone X that allows users to unlock the device simply by looking at it.
According to the guide, the chance that a random person can unlock an iPhone X with Face ID is 1 in 1,000,000. While the probability of unlocking the Touch ID function is 1 in 50,000.
Is the Face ID feature more secure than the Touch ID fingerprint reader? We do not know, for now. But what we do know is that she would have problems with twins and with children under 13.
"The statistical probability is different for twins and twins who closely resemble you and among children under the age of 13 because their facial features have not fully developed."
On the other hand, and finally, from Apple comment that if you are very worried about the Face ID feature you are recommended to use a password to authenticate your identity. What was missing, pay more than € 1,000 for a high-end smartphone and have to unlock it with password.
