The iPhone X brings over a brand new type of iPhone feature, one that changes the way you interact with the device, facial recognition. But Apple’s not doing facial recognition the Android way, which can be easily hacked with a photo. Instead, Apple built a miniaturized Kinect that analyzes the unique patterns of each face with the help of components that can measure depth. Thus, the 3D facial recognition of the iPhone X is unparalleled when it comes to biometrics-based mobile security.
Face ID is the first step towards the kind of seamless, perpetual authentication we’re heading to. But it’s not good enough for Korean banks.
