Security concerns abound as Apple launches iPhone X with Face ID

Face ID in Apple's iPhone X tricked by a $150 3D-printed face mask

Apple launched the £999 iPhone X last night, laying to rest the decade-old home button but more importantly, bringing out a new biometric authentication feature that could revolutionise the way customer data is stored.

Apple says there's one in a million chance of someone cracking Face ID but security experts are still far from satisfied.

At first glance, Face ID, the new biometric authentication feature in iPhone X that Apple introduced at the Steve Jobs Theatre last night, seems to be more complex than Touch ID, considering it maps out a person's facial features rather than a mere fingerprint. On its part, Apple went to great lengths to convince its fans that the feature is strong enough and secure enough to withstand the efforts of cyber criminals.
