This 10-year-old unlocked his mom's iPhone X using Face ID

However, ever since Apple's iPhone X was available in the market, several attempts have been made to break iPhone X's face id feature by hackers, industry insiders, phone junkeys, and other technology advanced people.

With Face ID, Apple has launched a grand experiment in a form of biometric security previously untested at this scale. But a new video, featuring a Mom-son duo, shows the facial recognition tech is more vulnerable than it appears.

A video has surfaced on YouTube in which a 10-year-old boy is seen unlocking his mother's iPhone X using his face. Apple says that the statistical probability might not be applicable in the case of twins or siblings which have a lot in common regarding facial appearance. In it, Apple admits Face ID may fail with children below the age of 13 "because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed". The Vietnamese security company did not disclose the number of false starts it took prior to coming up with a mask that could fool Face ID and unlock an iPhone X. He doesn't fall under the "twins" exception and has a big age difference compared to my wife.

Other than that, the eyes were represented with printed 2D images, with a little extra special processing done on the cheeks and other areas of the face where there are large areas of skin.

However Bkav has said that their success in fooling Face ID should not be a cause of alarm to ordinary users given the amount of time and effort that was required.

Attuallah Malik and Sana Sherwani discovered this when their fifth-grade son Ammar Malik simply picked up his mother's new iPhone X without her permission and shocked her by unlocking the device with his first glance. According to the reports the screens of the iPhone X were being unresponsive and inaccurate whenever the weather was cold and this required users to lock and unlock the phone in order to use it. But the researchers' team at security firm Bkav allegedly proved that assurance wrong through a mask that cost $150 (approximately Rs. 9,800) to make.
