Phil Schiller: Keep your new iPhone X away from your twin brother


The new iPhone X incorporates the new security method Face ID, where in the presentation of the new iPhone, Craig Federighi had a hard time trying to unlock an iPhone X using this new method.
According to Phil Schiller, the new security method is much safer than the Touch ID , where the possibility of a failure is reduced to 1 in 1 million. With Touch ID is 1 in 50,000 possibilities.
There are many questions that we usually do with this new facial release, for example, if it would work in the dark, if we left a beard or if we simply put on some sunglasses.

The only Face ID vulnerability is in your twin brother

Face ID Points
In the presentation of the new iPhone X, Phil Schiller tried to give all the possible answers on why they have chosen this new method of security for the new iPhone X. To remove some iron to the security issue, Phil commented with humor that the only registered vulnerability has "your evil twin brother" .
Face ID works thanks to the TrueDepth projector , where it emits a signal imperceptible to the human eye with 30,000 points in our face to detect every possible detail. Thanks to the camera to the actual depth camera , this will be able to know if it is in front of a person, a photograph or a video.
It also works in the dark thanks to an infrared camera and an IR illuminator . This, along with the new Bionic A11 chip . So we should not worry to always have a spotlight in the dark.
"WE USE THE IMAGE AND DOT PATTERN SO NEURAL NETWORKS CAN CREATE A MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF YOUR FACE"
Face ID testing has been more than satisfying for Apple to fully implement it on its new flagship. This new technology is able to detect if we have left a beard or if we are using a complement like a pair of sunglasses.
This is because the new iPhone X will "watch us" constantly, which will register all the new changes of our face. It uses a specific chip called "Secure Enclave". It's chip stores everything related to our face locally . That is, it is not shared with any server in the cloud.
When stored in the phone itself, where no one has access (less physically), it can not be infringed by any cybercriminals. In case they were stolen, the access is encrypted to give as much security as possible.
"THE STATISTICS ARE COMPLICATED IF THE PERSON SHARES A CLOSE GENERIC RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU, SO KEEP YOUR NEW IPHONE AWAY FROM YOUR EVIL TWIN"
Of course, the iPhone X could confuse you with your twin brother, so Phil recommends that you keep the new iPhone X away from this. Eye, it does not speak of that it would be unlocked automatically, only that exists that high possibility in level of statistics.
Curious is Craig Federighi's claim to a MacRumors reader , where he claimed that virtually all sunglasses allow enough infrared light to pass over the lenses, even opaque ones. So we can use Face ID with sunglasses in most cases.
