Though Face ID on the iPhone remains the most reliable facial recognition scheme you can find on a smartphone today, it's not without its shortcomings. While Face ID does a remarkable job of identifying individual users and detecting fraudulent authentication efforts, it's still possible for twins of family members who closely resemble each other to trip up the software. Back when the iPhone X first launched, you may recall a flood of videos demonstrating this edge-case vulnerability sprouting up on YouTube.
Face ID hasn't changed much since its first incarnation, but that's poised to change once Apple releases its 2019 iPhone lineup. According to a number of credible sources, Apple's forthcoming iPhone models will incorporate a next-gen version of Face ID that will be both faster and more reliable. What's more, Apple has been busy working on techniques to better discern between twins, siblings, and other family members who happen to bear an uncanny resemblance to each other.
