We all know very well that with the iPhone X, the tech giant Apple brought to the market some innovations. The most talked about, and possibly most important, is the Face ID. But, according to the latest report, the tech giant Apple’s iPhone X failed to differentiate two Chinese women.
Apple’s Face ID Failed To Differentiate Two Chinese Women
As many of you already know, with the launch of the iPhone X, the tech giant Apple implemented a new unlocking and security system as an alternative to the fingerprint sensor. Today we know it by Face ID, and it seems that its operation would not be as good as expected.
It should be noted, first of all, that with the launch of this new iPhone X many users expressed their disagreement regarding the validity of this facial recognition. Many of them thought that the operation would not be precise, would present instability and would be unreliable.
But after knowing the true functioning of this mechanism, both normal users and experts in the field, have said that the operation is really good. Although today, because of the news we have known, this perception could change.
As we have known in Fudzilla, a Chinese woman named Yan could see how her co-worker unlocked the device, of course, the iPhone X without any problem using Face ID technology.
The iPhone X in question, which had been correctly configured to only unlock the woman’s face, failed to recognize. Despite not being Yan, the device was unlocked with ease, proving that if it is possible to deceive the sensor.
The woman, aware that what she had seen was a serious operating error and a significant security breach, got in touch with the tech giant Apple guys. Following the attitude with which the Face ID was presented, they recommended that you go to an official store to show the error in person.
As it happened in their work, both women went to an official store of the tech giant Apple and demonstrated, with ease, that the Face ID recognized them both equally. The surprise in the store was remarkable.
Face ID: It is not a perfect system
Although the tech giant Apple was determined to show that it is impossible to deceive the Face ID, it is clear that, although very punctually, it is possible. No technology of this type is perfect, so that there may be an occasion for failure at times.
Despite this, it should not be overlooked that the new iPhone X lacks another security system such as a fingerprint sensor. This implies that all those actions in which it is necessary to identify the person must be done through this functionality.
This opens again the debate of the security around the new Apple device, of course, the iPhone X and the need to add some extra function to be able to validate it on occasions like these. At the moment we can only enjoy this new iPhone and wait for the tech giant Apple to continue polishing its facial recognition system.
