Testing (and Tricking) FaceID

Apple’s iPhone X has started to arrive, and one of the big questions is how well FaceID works, and how easy it is to fool it. The Wall Street Journal recently put the phone to the test and shared their results. TL;DW? Don’t buy one if you have an identical twin.

Apple: The Void
