Apple has warned this feature shouldn’t be used by children under the age of 13.
The new facial recognition tool, Face ID, is not recommended for kids.
The firm claims that their faces ‘may not have fully developed’ and are too similar, increasing the chance that their iPhone could be unlocked by someone else, reports Daily Mail.
Apple said: ‘The statistical probability is different for twins and siblings that look like you and among children under the age of 13, because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed.’
Face ID uses a TrueDepth front-facing camera on the iPhone X, which has multiple components.
A Dot Projector projects more than 30,000 invisible dots onto your face to map its structure.
The dot map is then read by an infrared camera and the structure of your face is relayed to the A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone X, where it is turned into a mathematical model.
Not sure I would be using it myself, I don’t even use the fingerprint feature, do you?
