Iphone X Facial Recognition System Cannot Differentiate Twins by Nobody: 10:57am On Nov 02, 2017
One of the key features of the iphone x or should should I say it's key feature, because the face recognition system on the iPhone x called face ID had the most hype amongst all the new features the iPhone x had.

The face ID has once again failed in a test carried out to ascertain it's authenticity.

Failed again? Did it fail before? Yes it failed before. The iPhone x face ID system failed four times during the iphone x unveil event when Craig federighi ( apples software head) tried to demonstrate the power of the face recognition system featured on iPhone x.

Yes it was a great blow to the prestige of the iPhone x. The face ID failure was blamed on the engineer in charge of making sure Craig's face was well enrolled on the test device, they also blaimed the failure on the fact that the iphone x used was a test version.

Enough of the history. The iphone x failed ID system has once again failed.

Apple said the dot projector featured in the face recognition system of the iPhone x would be able to detect the texture of your face and would be able to differentiate your face from a mask that looks just like you, other people's face, a photo of you and be able to recognise you with different facial hairs.

But it turns out the dot project featured on the iPhone x face recognition system isn't as accurate as apple taught.

A test carried out by mashable validates this.

Mashable used twins for this experiment.
The result was that the both of them where able to unlock the same iphone x with their faces, mean while only one of the twin faces was registered on the face recognition system learn more..

Identical twins share the same DNA so only a DNA test should be able to reveal the small variation, not facial recognition sensors.

So far the iris scanners on phones can be fooled easily.
