Face ID Hacked, But it Isn't as Big a Deal as You Think

I’m going to quote Rocket Racoon on this one...”as per frickin’ usual”

Apple is the story the media loves to run with, it doesn’t matter what the story is. If you seriously think someone is going to go through what is required to pull off this hack just to get into your iPhone then I need to go into the tinfoil hat selling business. Bottom line, great attentiona grabber but this is not feasible unless you are watching an episode of Mission Impossible. I linked to the Mac Observer article because Jeff Gamet nailed it:

”Practically speaking, if you have someone long enough to get a detailed scan of their head there’s a much faster and more reliable method for getting into their phone. It’s amazing how powerful a motivator threatening to break someone’s arm is.”
