iPhone X FaceID

Apple's advanced Face ID technology is a colossal failure. The company overhyped this feature to such a degree that hundreds of people stood in lines for hours to pay $1,000 for the new iPhone X.

Face ID uses a biometric 3D authentication facial recognition feature to unlock the phone by scanning the owner's face multiple times.

But iPhone X owners are finding out that the feature can be defeated by anything from a paper mask to their own children.

Staten Island mom Sana Sherwani posted a video showing her 10-year-old son, Ammar, unlocking her iPhone X by simply glancing at it for a few seconds. The video has already garnered over 800,000 views on YouTube.com.

Ammar resembles his mother, but Apple claims there are numerous differences that Face ID should detect.

iPhone X FaceID

"When my wife and I received our iPhone X, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X," Attaullah Malik wrote on YouTube. "Right away my wife declared that he was not going to access her phone. Acting exactly as a kid would do when asked to not do something, he picked up her phone and with just a glance got right in."

iPhone X FaceID

Mashable blog also ran a test using a mask that tricked the iPhone X's Face ID.

The Wall Street Journal's Joanna Stern fooled the technology with masks, costumes and her eight year old.

Face ID fared no better with biological twins who are able to unlock the phone by just glancing at it.

But Apple insists the probability of another person unlocking your phone just by looking at it is just 1 in 1,000,000.

The company is not offering refunds for the $1,000 bricks.

    Lol... wat a load of crock!
    I am staying with my 7 plus til the 20 comes and even then I will continue to use my numeric pass code!

    So now chicks will be using their kinds to get their feelings hurt looking through their baby daddy's phone huh......

    i love when the new iphones come out because all the old ones magically stop working

    well her baby LOOKS just like her, so unless it's also 'recognizing' age and gender, her particular case seems understandable (clearly still a flaw, but i get it, in this case)

    (so are you lame, if you don't run right out and get it? seems you'd wait to see if any 'bugs' are identified, wait for apple to work out the kinks, and THEN purchase it *shrug*)

    Complete horse shit

    As expensive as the shit is it needs to work right!

    She also could've took that thousand dollars to the thrift store and spruced up the place a bit. Geez.

  • KcoolMuziq

    You're missing out on a beautiful,.state of the art, phone that has gotten me so many compliments. With gushing reviews from anyone that sees how breathtakingly beautiful it is when I take it out.. I've had it since Nov 3 and even lost it in the gym and had it returned to me.

    I can't keep my hands off of it...

    YES and the end!

  • Django the God

    Right, I went out and got a new one because my iphone was slowing down so much.

    My wife said it was from porn.

  • Rayne

    Just turrible. I wouldn't care is tgey were Jacob American. Still ugly. Lol

  • Django the God

    He probably put a rug on the wall and lit some incense. Thats it.

  • Noirluv45

    I ain't scanning my face or fingerprints into any phone. I believe they collect it and keep it in governmental files.

  • MookieFly
  • JV

    Instead of getting a brand-new iphone for 1,000$, just get a nice digital camera. That's all you're really paying for, because models 3-4-5 years older are still on par, by and large.

  • MookieFly

    this might just be the Iphone that topples Apple off the top spot. People are complaining about burned in pixels, the notch, the Face ID, etc.

  • Trace da Ace

    First off, who in the hell would pay $1,000 for a phone that will "lock up" or "break" within the next 1 1/2 anyways??? IDK maybe her money is long like that...but even if I had that phone, all that facial recognition and finger Id mess....sounds like FED shyt to me....no thank you.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    We can't blame Apple for fooling people into believing that anything beyond a fingerprint is essential for cellphone security.

    Most people seem to want more and more to do nothing with the more they get.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    She should've bought a $1,000 living room set.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Im always puzzled why IPhone users rather carry a cracked screen IPhone than a perfectly good condition Android.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    $1000 though?
    And it’s me and my husband- $2000 for phones?

    Hell no

  • Vonn

    Yup, plus the high and/or dumb thieves will try to chop off your finger.

  • Miss Thang

    I have a 6S and they are not going to make me get a new one. I'm not signing a new contract and I'm not paying for a new phone.

  • Vonn

    They'll be clearing a bunch of "cold cases" off of those prints.

    Apple: we're not giving the government access to that information.
    Government: we'll just take it.

    The government loves to use the Patriot Act to get what they want.

  • Miss Thang

    oh yeah, and I'm NOT accepting the new "update" my iphone keeps notifying me about!!! I know it's a trap!

  • Ajavee

    I like her living room set beautiful color.

  • MookieFly

    She got the Steve Harvey special lmao

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Well 1. They have the same face and 2. This must be a slow news day could I could give 2 fuggs and a bucket bout her iPhone.

  • Ajavee

    Same here I just go the 7 Plus in April Imma have this phone for a loong time LOL.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, whatever.
    I'm Android all the way anyway. I left the iPhone plantation a long time ago. Not going back.

  • Karen Brady

    Speaking of which.. yesterday I googled the plaza where my Publix is cuz I was looking for the chinese restaurant next to it... my phone told me the last day and time I was in that plaza and a whole bunch of other places I've been and when I was there. I'm sure ya'll are aware of this but it shocked the crap out of me. TMI. Unless I ever come up missing... then I guess it would be a good thing. Oh look, her fat azz was at China Fun at 7pm on Mon.

  • You Could Never

    DO not blame you. My daughter is getting the 6 for Christmas. She been rolling out with the 5 for awhile now. Did an update to it (her dad is an Apple head. He told her NOT to do it. She did it ANYWAY) and its literally now almost useless.

    They are on sale Black Friday for Straight Talk which is her little plan. $129. She better take it and hush lol.

  • Tennessean

    I feel like I just bought my 6S last month although its been two years. But as much it cost I wanted to get at least another three years out of it...I got the screen fixed and unlimited data, like, I have become attached.

  • Karen Brady

    That's why they do it.. I finally stopped running behnd evey new version every year. Long as I can call, text, surf, take pics..

  • whodatthere

    And never update your phone because the update will crash your phone and it will never be the same and in the end you will end up buying a new phone, I was told this by phone software engineer.

  • Karen Brady

    Android!

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    I was team android as well until both my android phones blew up. After that I said aint no good coming from an android.

  • hotntot95

    I paid $89 for my HTC..(it was on sale) last year...it works wonders with making phone calls and texts and I'm able to check my email, google maps, tumblr, and so much more.??..I wush I would pay $1000 for a damn phone...smh

  • You Could Never

    +1. I been rolling with this Samsung S6 A LONG TIME. A long time. I plan to get a new battery and an SD card and call it a life for at least another year. TUH

  • Jygalo

    If that’s the only reason you’re getting the phone, you don’t need one to begin with.

  • Karen Brady

    Great tip!

  • whodatthere

    The phone has to recognize there big eyes. That's why it unlocks.

  • Tennessean

    I wondered why tho...it kinda scared me a little thinking the government watching ME (out of all folks...lol) the only reason i can think of its use is if you were lost or kidnapped. Again, why?

  • You Could Never

    I cannot stress this enough. My daughter, her aunt was sales manager for Sprint for YEARS. She still did the update. Her dad wants to still slap her lol

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Look OK!!! I still have my 7 Plus (the first one) and I'm perfectly fine with it. I think these new phones every year are targeted more towards children who just need to keep up with trends. I will get a new phone when this phone either breaks or no longer works.

  • Karen Brady

    Right!! That's what I'm saying.. I was like really???? I can be behind on things but it seriously made me pause. We are being watched my friend. SMH.

  • Karen Brady

    Their big eyes... lol sounds like a movie

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, I can see it now....
    Some dude is going to get this phone and think his wife/gf will never be able to get into it because of that facial recognition feature. But she's going to to find a way to get into it anyway and find some stuff... and that marriage/relationship will be OVER.

  • Karen Brady

    I finally stopped that when I realized how foolish it was!

  • Reina1718

    Yep, and somebody will get sued. YT will sue anyone and anything. Watch out Iphone.

  • whodatthere

    That's how they force you to get a new phone, my sister note 5 crashed as soon she did the note 8 update and the phone freezed up and she was forced to get a new phone.

    My first smartphone was an android. It wasn't a name brand, but it was before google bought them ought or merged, Idk what they did, but it was so much better back then.
    Anywhoo, when it finally played out, i got a refurbished iphone4. I think they were on the 6s version the, but the refurbished was what i could afford, $100. I have always bought refurbished phones and have always been able to turn my old phones on and still view old text msgs snd pics.

    Well, i dont think i had that iphone for a whole year before it just shut completely off. I couldn't turn it on for anything. I will never by another. Iphone. Android for me forever!

  • Kanyade

    I don't understand tech. I've got a 7 and I'm keeping it. I should've kept the 4 I had. Bump that, I should've never gotten rid of my Blackberry.

  • Reina1718

    I dont see this on you tube?

  • imright

    me too. my fave was the 5

  • Mr.LeBrickJames
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm the same way. I haven't bought a brand new phone in years. I buy them on Amazon in like-new, very good, or refurbished condition and they work as well as a new phone. I'm not paying $400-$500+ for a brand new phone.

  • Passion

    I wish I would have known this yesterday!
    I usually never update apps that I don't use which is most of them. This morning I stupidly decided to update them all and what a big mistake!!?
    Nothing is acting right, I can't see pictures on the blogs, just a big mess!! I have 7 S edge.

    When I search something on my laptop I will start getting TV commercials about the exact things or restaurants I've searched.

  • Passion

    She probably did an upgrade and pay with it in her Bill, that's how tmobile works.

  • whodatthere

    They will be exposed one day! do you notice the phones start to act weird when a new phone is coming out or after the phone comes out and you have to update to the new operating system, your phone is never the same unless you do a factory reset.

    its a damned good title. i like it

    worse. my husband and i were joking and laughing about gout, some medical condition a lazy cousin of mine claims he has so he wont have to work. the next morning, on my phone was an ad on my facebook page about gout and medical treatment. so now y'all know the phone "listens" to all we say and do as well. big brother is watching... and listening and sht.

  • Patricia

    what brand were they?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Let's be clear: the app is listening. Facebook and other social media apps are spying on you. You give them access to everything -- including your phone's mic -- when you download the app. I don't have any apps on my phone.

  • pure_rachet

    yep plus they don't allow older devices to work anymore. Dude got me an Itouch in 2010 and I can't use it. Wont even barely turn on or charge.

  • pure_rachet

    I googled some mortgage articles for work on the work PC (never signed in to google) but mortgage folks started calling and texting non stop on my cell saying I requested info. No idea how they have my number because I don't have a gmail account and I use iPhone plus wasn't using it to browse. Blew my mind.

  • http://nylaxy.com NYLA LAUREN

    Because iPhones aren't for smart people.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Most iPhone fanatics = brainwashed

    They barely update anything from one model to the next but the hype is so much by Apple and it's users, they flock to stores and stand in 2 day lines to get it. And the price?!

    Samsung has had that facial recognition feature for years (I know since at least 2013 or 2014) and it works similarly. If the person closely resembles you it WILL unlock.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Apple makes you upgrade after a point. They will not offer technical support or update older phones.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I still have my Note 5 and it works just fine. It just recently got another update and working well. I wonder what happened

  • Kimberly King

    I look different without makeup so that's why I passed on the iPhone 10. lol But I do have the 8 plus. I've hand androids before and I didn't like them. I like Apple's OS much better than Android. The last time I had an Android was in 2011. They released an update to the OS but said my phone was ineligible. Mind you my phone was brand new. There are so many phones that come out each year that has the Android OS. It's hard to keep up. I also prefer an iPhone because I have a MacBook, AppleTV, and an iPad pro so it makes everything flow better. There are times where I leave my phone upstairs charging, but I can still text anyone from my MacBook or my iPad. Everyone has their preferences. I never understood why people get so hot and bothered over the silly Apple vs Android debate. Speaking of, have y'all seen that new Samsung commercial? That sh*t was funny as hell. lol

  • Youngblood

    lmao I just read the 1st line.i look diff without makeup and I cant dam breath you are so crazy lmaaaaaaao

    Something my son would do. Do that stupid dap dance after I just knew he couldn't get in my phone.

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    Yeah but he has his mom's facial features. Most children do, but not to worry as he gets older his face structure will change. I read about all this new technology, and how it can now read your face. And I don't like the sound of, it - thanks but not thanks. I'll stick to a normal everyday phone.

  • http://bettybooplover.tumblr.com/ Berry Melon

    I have the 4th Gen version. And basically now it can't do anything on the internet. I also have an ipod which used to be able to surf the web to perfection several years ago - now it can't. It can't even load YouTube. I'm having problems playing YouTube videos on them. It's either update (buy a new phone) or the videos are hard to open, unless you have a special app that plays videos. I used to have no trouble...

  • Waya Hedia

    Same happened with the fingerprint system. Apple knows this. But in the time it took to hack this, they made billions. A sucker is born every minute. Some of them stand inline at Apple stores.

  • Waya Hedia

    The iPhone maps a user's face to 3D points. They had to decimate it before release because of security issues. So it is less accurate than it could be. Recognition uses 2D data.
