Attaulah Malik, Ammar's father shared this story on Youtube and LinkedIn as well, where he acknowledged that his son's face can not always unlock his mother's phone, as reported by Wired.

We've heard of hackers and siblings tricking Face ID, but it turns out even a 10-year-old kid can potentially unlock their mother's iPhone X. That's exactly what happened with Ammar Malik and Sana Sherwani, raising the question of how reliable Apple's fancy biometric system actually is. We were sitting down in our bedroom and were just done setting up the Face IDs, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X. Right away my wife declared that he was not going to access her phone. He also unlocked his dad's phone too. That may be true for a random person, but family members obviously have a much higher chance. If the failed scan passed a certain threshold of resemblance, and the passcode is inputted correctly thereafter, Face ID takes another scan to correct its model in the attempt to be more accurate in the future. The video comprises of 41-second and the family has been successful in unlocking iPhone X. When the mom set up FaceID again (in good light this time), Ammar was no longer able to fool the phone.

Some of the important Changes or updates actually started on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus among-st other updates, the most popular and in particular, the change from Touch ID to Face ID arrived on the iPhone X!

In it, Apple admits Face ID may fail with children below the age of 13 "because their distinct facial features may not have fully developed".

The frame of the face was created with 3D printing, with the nose being produced by a third-party artist and moulded in silicone.

"These are actual masks used by the engineering team to train the neutral network to protect against them in Face ID", said Schiller while standing below an image of the masks.
