    So my brother came over and I tested to see if he could unlock my iPhone X with his face. It worked! He’s about 30lb lighter and has a mustache. Kind of disappointed that it did work. I do trust my brother but still disappointed that it worked.

    Thats expected. Would’ve been nice if Apple found a way to keep Touch ID so people can have the best of both worlds.

    I mean, it’s a 3D map of your face. If you have the same face it sands to reason it would be fooled.

    That’s not at all meant to sound condescending. But even Apple was up front about this and they tend to side step whenever possible.

    Well that sucks.. Maybe next software update Apple could increase the security by scanning the iris of the eye, who knows..

    Isn’t it weird that he knows what your penis looks like?

    Apple said it would right off the bat. Nobody else is getting in, and it’s not any less secure than it was pitched to be (which is much more secure than Touch ID)

    interesting original post.

    re:touch ID, it seems in the case of “identical”twins anyway, Touch ID would win over Face ID as identical twins don’t share the same fingerprints (even though DNA and other physical characteristics are identicical)
