Three-dimensional face recognition technology, which was first implemented in iPhone X, still has a few flaws, not allowing it to be considered as the reference method of identification. As shown by multiple experiments, Face ID is impervious to the faces of people under the age of 13, the twins and even children and their parents, mistaking them for one person and at the root, undermining its credibility. Unfortunately, this drawback has migrated to the new iPhone XS and XS Max.

Despite some improvements, Face ID in the new iPhone, which Apple said at the presentation on September 12, the authentication system still suffers from the fact that confuses people alike. This convinced the authors YouTube channel LifeOfTwinz, tested facial recognition technology in the new iPhone XS Max.

How to cheat Face ID

The experiment began with the fact that one of the twins has made my face in the memory of the iPhone XS Max, and then check the Face ID, and gave the smartphone to my brother. He did the same actions, and the smartphone is unlocked. The machine took the other twin for the first and even not asked for a password to update the virtual mask is entered in the memory. ID not bother neither the beard of one of the twins or hats, which were used in subsequent stages of the experiment.

How to make the second person in the memory of the Face ID

With the release of iOS 12 interface Face ID received the support of additional persons, which you can use to unlock the iPhone X to XS, Max XS and XR. At the request of the brothers, they did not use this feature of the operating system, because it would be too easy. Their words were confirmed by the performance of scanner, which, as practice shows, begins to work more slowly if to add to his memory the face of another person. About how to do this, we have been told.

Along with the decrease of the response speed, additional memory face to Face ID increases the probability of a false unlock twice. If in the case of one person the chance that the interface will be mistaken, is 1 in 1 000 000, with two reduced to 1: 500 000.
