10 Year Old Beats Face ID on Mom's iPhone X [Video]

A video has surfaced showing a 10 year old beating the Face ID security feature on his mom's iPhone X.

Attaullah Malik and Sana Sherwani had just set up their new pair of iPhone X smartphones with Face ID when their fifth grade son, Ammar Malik walked into the bedroom. "There's no way you’re getting access to this phone," Attaullah remembers his wife telling her son half jokingly.

Attaullah offered to let Ammar look at his phone instead but the boy picked up his mother's by mistake. A split second after he look at it, the phone unlocked, reports Wired. When Ammar tried to unlock his father's phone it also worked but only on the first attempt, which he has not been able to replicate since.

Apple says the probability that a random person in the population could look at your iPhone X and unlock it is approximately 1 in 1,000,000; however, the company warns that the statistical probability is different for twins and siblings that have similar features and among children under the age of 13, because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed.

It wouldn't have worked, Apple forced us to change the parameters ( dots ) by less then a quarter of what our face recognition was built on because it was not fast enough for them, so please don't blame me.
