It's not a simple process, but it does mean that the iPhone X is technically defeatable. Users can quickly disable Face ID by pressing the lock button five times in a row, but it would hypothetically be possible to steal someone's phone and use the mask to unlock it before Face ID could be locked out. However, reports such as this, along with the recent allegations that even the face of a sibling of a different age can beat Face ID, may start making iPhone X owners and potential customers anxious. With Face ID implementation, iPads will also get special features like Animoji and app compatibility, while Apple could launch the second version of Apple Pencil alongside the new iPad. Bkav, however, took a different approach.

The security firm created a mask with a 3D-printed frame, which was then filled in with hand-crafted "skin" and other 3D-printed parts. Really hard to do the "right" mask, without a specific knowledge security. The mask also features a silicone nose and 2D images for some components such as the eyes.

Apple's Face ID is supposed to be the most secure biometric security system ever put into a smartphone.

When Samsung introduced the Note 8 with its $960 price tag, we knew about Apple's new iPhone X, which will cross the borderline of Samsung with the pricing policy.

Bkav admitted that its discovery is not a concern for regular users, but rather for public figures such as politicians and celebrities. The researchers say the iPhone X was first trained with a real person's face, and that no hacks or software cheats were involved.

If the Apple does adopt this new iPhone X-like design, the new iPad Pro could feature a 10.5-inch or 12.9-inch screen in a much smaller form factor.
