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.
"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."
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.
