10-year old son can unlock mom’s iPhone X using FaceID

Quote

When my wife and I received our iPhone X, we had no such intention. However, things changed right after we were done setting up our new iPhones on November 3rd. We were sitting down in our bedroom and were just done setting up the Face IDs, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X. Right away my wife declared that he was not going to access her phone. Acting exactly as a kid would do when asked to not do something, he picked up her phone and with just a glance got right in. 

 

I would like to point out one of the questions posed to Tim Cook by Senator Al Franken after the Face ID was announced:

 

"What safeguards has Apple implemented to prevent the unlocking of the iPhone X when an individual other than the owner of the device holds it up to the owner's face?" 

 

In a world where your smartphone knows more about you than your significant other and has access to pretty much all of the services that you use, the question asked above is of paramount significance. Like many other smartphones, iPhone has many security features built in such as encryption and data protection, network and app security, and numerous device and privacy controls. If all of the protection settings are used right, the biggest risk comes from someone having physical access to your phone. Once a malicious person has found a way to hack into your phone, even encrypted data can be accessed.

 

Sucks for people who bought one I guess as Apple treated them to become beta testers and it costs those beta testers $1000. I have doubted Face ID ever since Apple announced the iPhone X this year and it shows an oversight from Apple. 

 

Quote

At WIRED's suggestion, Malik asked his wife to re-register her face to see what would happen. After Sherwani freshly programmed her face into the phone, it no longer allowed Ammar access. To further test it, Sherwani tried registering her face again a few hours later, to replicate the indoor, nighttime lighting conditions in which she first set up her iPhone X. The problem returned; Ammar unlocked the phone on his third try this time. It worked again on his sixth try. At that point, Malik says, the phone's AI seemed to learn Ammar's features, and he could consistently unlock it again and again.

 

All of that suggests that in the right conditions—and if parents aren't aware of the possibility—a lucky child might be able to unexpectedly access his or her parent's secrets. "Not everyone will have done this sort of testing, or they might not be aware that someone else in their family can log into the phone," says Malik.

So if you look a lot like your mom or dad, return that iPhone X, get a refund and get the iPhone 8 Plus instead. It has the same A11 Bionic SoC which is crazy fast. Animoji is a silly gimmick and the camera of the iPhone 8 Plus is ranked very high by tech reviewers and DxO Mark. Little did Apple realize that even identical twins don’t have the same fingerprints. Apple have shown the tech industry how to make a very good fingerprint scanner with the iPhone 5s and it simply put the Galaxy S5’s swipe pad fingerprint scanner to shame. Why can’t Apple simply use what works for them? 

As for me, iPhone 8 Plus all the way. I already consider Apple’s move to OLED a bad idea and so is the Face ID of the iPhone X. In actuality, even identical twins don’t share the same fingerprints and more so a kid who looks like mom or dad. So in my opinion, Face ID is a flop and a beta feature unlike Touch ID which was ready for prime time ever since the iPhone 5s. https://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/06/science/06qna.html

Well life on the outside ain't what it used to be

Well the world gone crazy and it ain't safe on the streets

Well it's a drag and I know

There's only one place to go

I'm coming home

Oh yeah, I'm comin' home

Or, you know, use a password instead like people have been doing for the past decade without any problems.

That would be a step back, though. But that's sort of what Apple has been doing lately, replacing an integrated headphone jack with an adapter. 


I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do the hoomans give their builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + ML120 + NF-F12

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

My Apple ID password is 16 character long I don’t feel like typing it all the time whenever I’m buying something from iTunes. I look a lot like my father and with Touch ID, I’m not worried that my father or any of my family members or friends would unlock my iPhone.

Out of curiosity, why?


GooglFanboy

 

I seem to like any products who have the same software and hardware maker, as long as it's not Apple. Weird. I like the Surface Book and the Pixel phones, but most definitely don't want an iPhone or another Mac (I'm not saying they're bad, though).

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones) but please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

But Apple has to be innovative hahaha such a failure, I wish people didn't replace their phones every year... so much precious resources going to waste with the same stuff rebranded over and over.

I know it says she must have set it up with bad lighting conditions.......

but wouldn't that mean that even if she set it up in good lighting that the phones sensors clearly don't work well at low lighting anyway?

wouldn't the initial scan be much more intensive that the following simple unlock scans?

 

wouldn't in low lighting it scan faster than the initial and still make the same mistake?

it's a dumb system I'm sorry.

The headphone jack was unnecessary, you don't need an adapter if you have wireless or lightning connector headphones.

And using a pin to get into a phone is not a step back, it is just an alternative.

 

In case you didn't notice, almost all devices that use fingerprint, eye scan, or facial scan will have you set up a pin anyway as a backup to get into the device when the other technologies fail.

Guess why? Because it's the most reliable.

Then those people can use a shorter password.

And just fyi, the password to get into the phone does not need to be the apple id password, it can just be the standard 4 digit pin that 90% of people use.

IPS LCD may not have the same deep blacks and high contrast of OLED but IPS LCD lasts longer. 

 

I think Apple was simply testing out the waters of OLED with the iPhone X but who knows? Maybe Apple’s own color calibration would keep the OLED display last longer. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Have you even seen it?

I ride public transportation all the time. With Touch ID, I’m not worried that the person beside me or at my back are looking at my 6-digit passcode when I unlock my iPhone. Same goes when I’m with friends.

It could also be a requirement for minimal bezels as the backlight for an LCD needs to go somewhere. And I've yet to find any decent information on the amount of space required for either an edge backlight or a direct backlight (although I would assume a direct backlit device would be significantly thicker).

If you're concerned about the person next to you looking over your shoulder and then stealing your phone....well, I'm sorry to say this, but if they're going to steal your phone from you, then there's also a good chance they'll be willing to knock you out and just use your fingerprint anyway. Or they could just grab it the second you unlocked it.....

I’m concerned about pickpockets when I’m in a bus or train. The moment I unlocked my phone with a passcode just to text or call someone, the pickpocket near me could’ve seen my passcode by then and once I slipped it back to my pocket, the crook could’ve unlocked my phone. You know pickpockets are very stealthy when stealing. 

 

With Touch ID, I don’t have to type my passcode to unlock it. He doesn’t know my passcode then and if he tries to stick something to my finger to copy my fingerprint, I’d be aware of that. And seriously, who would knock out someone in a crowded bus or train?

The same type of person who would also steal someone's phone. It's not exactly hard to hit someone, grab their phone, and step out the closing door. And again, he could just wait until you unlock it and grab it then. And if that's the thing you're worried about, then FaceID is plenty secure (although, frankly, no method is secure in that scenario).

Damn I remember that on tube TVs, couldn't have static images on it for too long or else it could get stuck on the screen for good.

 

I really had no idea that OLED had this issue... I have never really paid much attention to this technology as I'm happy with any IPS panel already but we often see Linus and other big deal folk praising OLED for its magnificence and I do must say it is a bloody irony that it suffers from such an oldschool issue.

And its a shame too. I like the image quality on my phone but I've pretty badly burned in my keyboard and telegram into the display, owning the phone for only a couple months.

 

I was able to avoid it on my nexus 6p by inverting the black/white often via a quicksetting toggle, but guess what asus broke? The trigger that enables that easy toggle.

I also would like ask why Linus called iOS 11 awesome on a WAN  show episode when in fact iOS 11 is the buggiest iOS release ever. Way buggier than iOS 7 when it launched.

Although its not like a plasma, it is like a CRT. Both have phosphors that "wear out" over time. Using the pixel causes it to slowly dim.
