Apple's Face ID Feature Will Even Work W/ Sunglass, It Can Be Disable By Gripping Buttons On Both Sides Of iPhone X

According to Craig Federighi, director of Apple's software engineering, Apple's new facial recognition feature, in most cases, will not be affected by the user who wearing sunglasses and will work normally. "Most sunglasses let through enough IR light that Face ID can see your eyes even when the glasses appear to be opaque. Federighi said in an email to developer Keith Krimbel.

Although Apple's Face ID feature has made it clear that is suitable for hats, scarves, beards, glasses, makeup and other things that may cover the face, but hasn't special mention sunglasses. Federighi's answer also clarifies the last important factor on facial recognition. That is, how would user prevent a thief from taking the iPhone X, pointing it at his face, and running off. 

In response, Federighi says there are two mitigations in place. "If you don't stare at the phone, it won't unlock," he wrote. "Also, if you grip the buttons on both sides of the phone when [you] hand it over, it will temporarily disable Face ID." 

In addition to answering above questions, Federighi also commented on the now highly-publicized that saw the feature fail to recognize his face. As we reported before, the software failed because someone else had picked up the phone ahead of Federighi's demo. Federighi says it's not really an issue he had encountered before.

The bio-lockout that I experienced on stage would require several interacts by other people with your phone (where they woke up the phone). For those of us who have been living on the iPhone X over the last months this has never been a real problem (hence my shock when it happened to me on stage! :-)

Face recognition is designed to replace the Touch ID and become a new biometric authentication system. Although this feature currently only supports iPhone X, but Apple said that the study of how to unlock the smartphone is a major trend in the future development, Face ID is just the beginning.
