According to Apple’s description, Face ID does not unlock if a high match between a face that wants to open the phone and a registered face has a high inception. After this process, if the lock is opened by entering the password, the Face ID records it by recognizing that this face is safe.

How does Face ID work?

The new biometric security system, Face ID, takes a 3-dimensional photograph of the user’s face by projecting 30,000 dots through the camera. These points are not visible to the human eye, but they can be recognized by infrared cameras. By analyzing the details on the face of the iPhone X’s camera user, Face ID compares to the image recorded when it is set up and paired and opens the phone.

While using Face ID, it is possible to use items such as sunglasses, scarves and hats and can detect changes such as beard and hair transplants. In this context, the tech giant Apple claims that the probability of Face ID being deceived is 1-in-a-Billion. As if you will press the power button 5 times, it will simply disable the Face ID.
