IPhone X's Face ID Will Only Allow One Face to Be Registered

IPhone X's Face ID Will Only Allow One Face to Be Registered

Now that Apple has offered an explanation as to why the iPhone X's Face ID failed onstage (it didn't, apparently), a company exec has addressed a few more questions regarding the security feature, including how to stop a thief from unlocking a stolen phone.

Apple claims Face ID can't be fooled in any way, meaning you won't be able to get into someone's phone by scanning a photo of them. Many of these questions will most likely be answered when the phone is released and people have had more time to play around with it, but there is one question that some are asking and that is how do we prevent our faces from being scanned? If you need further convincing, just read what Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, Philip Schiller, had to say in a statement about the new phone's advancements.

Face ID is revolutionary, says technologist Andreas Gal, because it is the first 3-D facial recognition system brought to the mainstream.

Apple unveiled Face ID at its iPhone press event earlier this week.

Over the past four years, Apple's Touch ID has been deployed on hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads, but not one report has ever surfaced of that fingerprint data being compromised, gathered by Apple, or shared with law enforcement. A dot projector spreads over 30,000 invisible dots and pushes them through neural networks to create "a mathematical model of your face". This is made possible by Apple's new TrueDepth front-facing camera system.

But! Because the iPhone 8 won't have Face ID, you can avoid buying a face mask entirely by choosing it over the X. It's still tech-forward, I promise.

Federighi also noted that the FaceID can be unlocked while wearing sunglasses as well. And since we have seen facial recognition being spoofed so often on existing smartphones, the apprehensions are justified.

Technically, Face ID is not supposed to work when the user's eyes are closed.

Anticipating the counter questions, Apple has already said on record that the data captured by Face ID will be stored locally on the phone itself. Face ID will work with Apple Pay, and other third-party apps.

This could be an issue for some potential iPhone X users, who are accustomed to adding their family members' prints with Touch ID, letting them operate the phone as well. Thanks to the built-in A11 bionic neural engine, Face ID learns your face - new hairstyle, new glasses, new hat or big scarf be damned.

The new Apple Watch Series 3 will be available in two models, one with just Global Positioning System and one with Global Positioning System and cellular capabilities, which will allow users to make and receive calls without having to have their iPhones nearby.
